I have several views for each product with close ups. How can I add additional photos to the product page? Is there a plugin I can download?

Hello Beth,

To add more than 1 photo to a product :

Just add a $ content area where appropriate on your product landing page or use that shortcut below. There's no plugin to install, it's all embedded in the system.


{$directupload:folder_name:image_name:thumb_size:[relgall]:[img_size[crop_size]][:static[:nolink]]}

This widget is used to load images directly on the page without  storing them in a separate folder in the media.

:folder_name - the name of the folder where all the loaded images will be stored automatically.

:image_name - name of the image.

:thumb_size - width and height of the preview image.

optional parameters:

:relgall - specifying this tag to the set of images, we automatically put them in the gallery. When you click on one of the images with this tag you´ll get access to the whole gallery.

:small|medium|large|original|crop - type of image size ( the image can be small, medium, large, of original size or cropped).

crop_size -  - a proportion by which the image is cropped.
(Example: crop-WxH where W - width, H - height)

:static - if you add this parameter, it will signify that widget is not related to a specific page. When you insert it on any page, it will display the same content.

:nolink - the image is displayed without putting it in the tag <a> . This means that when clicking on the image, it will not be opened in a new window and a larger version of the picture will not be displayed.

Hope this answers your question,
