Hi,

Can someone please tell me how it is possible to have a default 'Image Coming Soon' image display for products that have not had a specific image uploaded?

Thanks.

the new version of vpasp allows you to use [formatimage sub] on your product summary templates, which will then use the xnoimage config option if the cimageurl is blank.

but, if you want a full solution, then have a look at our image-defaulting addon, which allows you to use default images for thumbnails/enlarged images, and, unlike the vpasp logic, it also checks whether or not an entered image physically exists on the server (ie if the data's incorrect), and it also allows you to do the same for category images:

and you might also find this one useful:

You could just set xnoimage to yes and make an image that says what you want and name it the same as the no image file and upload into the same directory.

Sorry but I cant seem to find an 'xnoimage' field in the setup? Is this only in version 6.5?

yep; it's new on 6.5

an alternative would be to use the missing-image addon mentioned above, or manually change shopfileio.asp to do what you need.
