Create page programmatically

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

I have a question about how to create custom page programmatically.

I need to create a page, where I can place my content.

I know that I can create controller, than go to the "Traffic and SEO" and add a custom controller. It's like semi-programmatical method.

But my question is how to create the page with PHP

Thanks a lot!

P.S. I know it's not easy, but you can explain just logic.

P.S2 I know that we have CMS class in /classes but it creates a page where you need to define a controller

Tutorial for Prestashop 1.7

1. create front controller

<?php

class custompageControllerCore extends FrontController
{
    public $php_self = 'custompage';

    public function initContent()
    {
        $this->context->smarty->assign(
            array(
                'variable1' => 'Variable 1',
                'variable2' => 'Variable 2',
            )
        );

    parent::initContent();
      $this->setTemplate('custompage');
    }

}

2. save to ./controllers/front/custompageController.php

3. create tpl file


  {extends file='page.tpl'}
  
  {block name='page_title'}
    <span class="sitemap-title">{l s='Custom page' d='Shop.Theme'}</span>
  {/block}
  
  {block name='page_content'}
      <h2>My test page content</h2>
      <span>{$variable1}</span><br />
      <span>{$variable2}</span><br />
  {/block}

4. save to ./themes/your theme/templates/custompage.tpl

5. Admin -> Shop parameters -> Traffic & SEO

6. Click add new page

7. Select "Page name"  custompage

8. Rewritten URL = my-custom-page

9. Save

10. Admin -> Advanced Parameters -> Performance

11. clear cache and recompile template

12. go to: https://your-store-url/my-custom-page

Follow these instructions to programmatically create PHP and tpl files.
You also know where to store them.


Instead of creating SEO you can insert values into the database (`ps_meta_lang`).

$languages = Language::getLanguages(false, $this->context->shop->id);
        $get_meta_id = Db::getInstance()->getValue('SELECT id_meta FROM '._DB_PREFIX_.'meta_lang ORDER BY id_meta DESC;') + 1;
        
        foreach ($languages as $lang) {
		        Db::getInstance()->Execute(
                   "INSERT INTO `"._DB_PREFIX_."meta_lang` (`id_meta`, `id_shop`, `id_lang`, `title`, `description`, `keywords`, `url_rewrite`) 
                    VALUES (".$get_meta_id.", 1, ".$lang['id_lang'].", 'my custom page', 'created my custom page', 'my,custom,page', 'my-custom-page')"
                   );
        }

Db::getInstance()->Execute("INSERT INTO "._DB_PREFIX_."meta (`id_meta`, `page`, `configurable`) VALUES (".$get_meta_id.", 'custompage', 1)");

You can also add cache clear to your script.

Tools::clearSmartyCache();
Tools::clearXMLCache();
Media::clearCache();
Tools::generateIndex();

Hi,

@Guest

Custom controller works fine if extending file page...

But is there a way to do same just for tpl file?Idea is to create a custom controller, add some code/variables and push to custom tpl. Then later include that file in other tpl's in template?

Right now variables are shown only in that page/controller created. But if that tpl is included in different tpl it doesnt work...

Thanks

Hi,

@Verlonimo

I have noticed in your other posts that you are smart enough to solve your own question.

Hi,

@Guest

It's not about being smart enough. It's more about sharing your experience with community and other developers. Sometimes you can solve issue within 5 min. just asking for help instead of doing research for 2 or more days.

Thanks
