Hi,
I would like to be able to display a various amount of extra images on the product page. I modified the tmp_products.htm to add these image fields. My problem is that if the field is not defined. the broken link X is displayed.

Is there a way around this?

Thanks,

Al

you could use the $ trick in the tmp_products.htm template, eg:

$<br><img src="[extraimage1]">
$<br><img src="[extraimage2]">
$<br><img src="[extraimage3]">

or, if you'd like to have any number of images, you could use our addon which uses a naming convention and which'll display the thumbs (if you want) for all the images that it finds which match the naming convention:

Hi Simon,

I tried this, embedding the code into the html for the cells and it did not resolve the issue. Just added a $ in front of the X

This is the code in place. Am I doing something wrong, or does this not work with images?

Thanks,
Al

<tr>
<td width="50%" align="center">
$ <img src="[extraimage1]" border="0" /></td>
<td width="50%" align="center">
$ <img src="[extraimage2]" border="0" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="50%" align="center">
$ <img src="[extraimage3]" border="0" /></td>
<td width="50%" align="center">
$ <img src="[extraimage4]" border="0" /></td>
</tr>

it should work with any field, including the images, but the correct html to put in the template would be:


<tr>
<td width="50%" align="center">
$<img src="[extraimage1]" border="0">
</td>
<td width="50%" align="center">
$<img src="[extraimage2]" border="0">
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="50%" align="center">
$<img src="[extraimage3]" border="0">
</td>
<td width="50%" align="center">
$<img src="[extraimage4]" border="0">
</td>
</tr>

(ie the </td> bits should be on a separate physical line from the img src, otherwise the tags won't match)

make sure that the $ is the very first character on the physical line (ie no spaces before it on that line)

that assumes that the "x" relates to the fact that those columns have blank values in them; if they have image values in them but the images are physically missing on the server, then that'd be a different issue.

Hi again Simon,
The issue was that while the $ was the first character on the line, I had it indented to format the code. I moved it back and it works fine. Would be nice it we could use it and maintain the formatting, but at least it works.

Thanks a lot,

Al
