I have a flash demo for each of the products I am selling.
How can I "add a link' to these demos for every product.
I guess I have to use a new field, but have no idea where / how to add it, so that it available when entering new products.

PS: I've been searching for the last 1/2hr and I haven't found a solution.

Thanks !

Nadia

Dear Nadia,

One possible way to achieve this is to insert the url into any of the "other1...5" product fields, and then adding that field into your template with a $ at the front of the line (which will stop that html line from showing up if the "other1...5" value is null)

eg:
<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>
<tr>
$<td><a href="[other1]">flash demo</a></td>


The template you will need to modify for shopexd.asp is generally tmp_product.htm


Thank you

Regards,
Michael

Michael,

Seems like just the info I needed. I'll try this first thing in the morning. It's been a while since I opened either VPASP or OS%5, so I'm just getting used to the 'vanilla' design of vpasp, hopefully once I understand where everything is, I can bolt it into my own design

Thanks !

Nope didn't work

This is what I get on previewing the ext.description page . I wanted the link to show under the larger picture.
quote:

Field other1 not in database
$
View the Flash Demo of the template.



This is the code I placed into the tmp_product.htm


<!-- set line for flash demo -->         
<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>
<tr> 					
$   <td><a href="[other1]">View the Flash Demo of the template</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<!-- end flash demo  -->


After adding the above to the template, I entered the link to the demo in the Other1 product field for one of the products.

It does give me a link, but when clicked goes to:
http://xxxxxx. com/%5Bother1%5D
With an error "page cannot be found" naturally as there is no such link.

Any idea if I've done something wrong, or another suggestion?

Thanks

Dear Nadia,

Apologies, I missed a "p" - the other fields are actually named pother1...5

Try using this value in your template code to see how you go.

<!-- set line for flash demo -->
<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>
<tr>
$ <td><a href="[pother1]">View the Flash Demo of the template</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<!-- end flash demo -->


Regards,
Michael
