I'm wondering why when I enter the path to an image into the Additional Image 1 field that no image is displaying on the product??

Also how do I get it so that when I view a category which lists all the products that visitors can click on the product to view more information about the product such as a long description and additional images???

For the additional images, although they're storable in the data via the edit-product screen, they're not by default shown on the product-detail pages. To show an additional image in the product-detail page you'd need to edit the tmp_product.htm template file in notepad, and add something like this wherever you want the additional images shown:

$<img src="[extraimage1]" border="0"><br>
$<img src="[extraimage2]" border="0"><br>
$<img src="[extraimage3]" border="0"><br>
$<img src="[extraimage4]" border="0"><br>
$<img src="[extraimage5]" border="0"><br>

Note that the $ is a special character in the templates; it means that if the extraimage column for that product is blank then the rest of the html on that template line won't get displayed. If you're using the $ trick, then the $ must be the very first character on that line in the template and only one template-field (ie something in square brackets) is allowed on that line.

tmp_product.htm is the template for the shopexd.asp?id=xxx page (where xxx is your catalogid of the product)

tmp_productformat.htm is the template for the shopdisplayproducts.asp page (ie the summary, eg a list of products in a given category)

For getting "more.." links setup properly, it depends which version you're on as to whether some options will work as expected. Normally you'd make the following config changes:

xcrosslinkurl:
shopexd.asp

(instead of shopquery.asp; but that only works on the vpasp option package and above)

xgenerateshopexdlink:
set to "Yes" (instead of no, but, like the change above that'll only work on option package or above)
