Moving components within the quickview modal

It's possible to move, remove, and add components within the quickview modal. In this article, I'll explain how to move them.

The following is a list of each component that is hooked into the modal, where it's hooked, and at what priority. I'll then use this information to move a few components around.

Hook Component Priority
modal_part_sale_flash 5
  modal_part_title 10
  modal_part_rating 15
  modal_part_price 20
  modal_part_desc 25
  modal_part_add_to_cart 30
  modal_part_meta 35
modal_part_styles 5
  modal_part_images 10
modal_part_close 5
  modal_part_adding_to_cart 10

So let's say we wanted to move the product meta before the price output. Currently, the meta is displayed here in the modal:

In order to move this above the price, we want to unhook the current implementation, and re-hook it with a higher priority (higher in this case is a lower number).

You can add this code using the Code Snippets plugin, or using your preferred method.

function iconic_move_quickview_components() {
    global $jckqv;
    remove_action( 'jck_qv_summary', array( $jckqv, 'modal_part_meta' ), 35 );
    add_action( 'jck_qv_summary', array( $jckqv, 'modal_part_meta' ), 19 );

add_action( 'init', 'iconic_move_quickview_components' );

You can see I've set the priority to 19, as the price is queued up at priority 20. Now the modal will look like this:

Note that when you move items around, you may want to add some additional CSS to fix any spacing issues.

You can remove and add any number of actions in that same function. Just make sure when removing an action that you set the priority (the third parameter; 35 in our example) to be the same value as in the table above; you can obviously change this when re-adding the action.
