How to use DJ-Catalog2 YooTheme Integration Plugin

What is our integrator

DJ-Catalog2 Yootheme Integrator is a special plugin that provides the ability to generate views of the Dj-Catalog2 component using the Yootheme PRO builder
Thanks to the different content types available in the plugin - dynamic content, you can create unique views for:
  1. product list
  2. product sheets
  3. manufacturers list
  4. the manufacturer's description
  5. category list
To create these views, you can use all the elements available in Yootheme, such as grid, slideshow, panel slider and others.
You can also use predefined leyouts for individual views or presets for individual elements and elements provided by the plugin.

What you need

How to run it?

Step 1

  1. Installation of Dj-Catalog2 - instructions can be found here
  2. Configuration, product introduction
Documentation for DJ-Catalog2 is here

Step 2

Installing Yootheme

  1. Download Yootheme Pro and install it as a regular component
  2. Go to the tab system / templates section / Site Template Styles 

    and set Yootheme as the default template

  3. Now it's time to set the menu item.
    If you don't have any menus yet, it's best to start by setting the main menu as a single article (it may be empty)

    Then set the products menu item

  4. Go to the dashbord and select yootheme - you will be switched to edit mode with the webbuilder

    You can find Yootheme documentation here - For our purposes, I am demonstrating only the basics
    a. license key - you will need it, among other things, to download leyouts, illustrations
    Go to setings / API Key and paste your API code from your account's Websites section on Yootheme
    Enter your license code

    b. set the menu in the webbuilder
    Menus / e.g. Header position

    more information on menu settings can be found here -

Step 3

  1. Go back to the dashboard and install the DJ-Catalog2 integrator plugin. Make sure the plugin is published

  2. Go back to Yootheme and then use the menu to go to the product list

  3. Now we will create a product list template
    Knowing how sections, lines, and elements work in Yootheme will come in handy here. Please refer to the documentation for this
    On the product menu (in the context of the product list), select templates and then new template. In the next step, we give a name to our template (e.g. product page).


    Note that you can choose a category, which means that in practice you can create different templates for different categories.
    You can now download leyout from the library - to do this, click the library button and then select the DJ-CATALOG2 LEYOUTS tab and one of the available leyouts for the product list

    We already have a product list template ready

  4. The next step is the product card template
    Click on any product and then select tamplates in the context of the product. 

    Then new template. Give your template a name and save it just like you did for the product list.
    The builder is also available here.

    As in the previous case, you can choose a leyout from among the defined leyouts for a single product.

    And this way, we also have a product card ready

    Of course, you can create any, even very complex leyouts.  An example and inspiration is the LenaLighting product catalog -
