Using Feature Highlights

Feature Highlights allow you to define features and their values for products in a way that WHMCS can interpret for comparison based display.

Feature Highlights are supported by most order form templates. See the above descriptions for exact details.

Usage

Feature Highlights are specified as part of the product description. They must be entered in the following format, with one feature per line.

Feature: Value

For example, the description for a shared hosting product using Feature Highlights might look like this:

Disk Space: 1000MB
Bandwidth: 5GB
Email Accounts: 5
Subdomains: 3
Addon Domains: 1

The preview on the right shows how the above would be rendered in the Premium Comparison order form.

For best results we recommend that you use the same features and in the same order for all products within the same product group.

Disabling Feature Highlights

There may be occasions when it's required to disable feature highlights, such as when wishing to use other markup in the product description. To do this, simply edit the /templates/orderforms/*your active template*/products.tpl template file and perform these two edits:

  1. Replace {$product.featuresdesc} with {$product.description}
  2. Remove/comment out:
{foreach from=$product.features key=feature item=value}
 
<span class="prodfeature"><span class="feature">{$feature}</span><br />{$value}</span>
{/foreach}

Save changes and upload the modified template file. Now product descriptions will be displayed as entered.

Using Different Templates for Different Products

It is possible to specify the template you want to use for a product in the URL you use to link to the order form. And therefore by doing that you can use multiple different templates concurrently and thus use the one that best suits each product or type of product you offer.

Details on how to do this can be found in the article: Linking to WHMCS - Order Links
