Copying Extended Info Zoom data to Product Page Zoom Data

Post by graphicz » Mon Oct 13, 2014 11:59 am

I am working on a V 12.0.5 site with Magic Zoom installed in the version of the site as supplied to me. The Client was using Extended Info pages as single product pages.

Using Sellerdeck's SPP converter I have converted the Extended Info pages to Single Product Pages but the converter did not bring accross the Magic Zoom images and titles from the Extended info pages to the SPPs.

Is this data in the Actinic Database somewhere so that it can be copied and pasted across?

Or does one have to do an excel export and move the data that way?

Or is there anything clever one can do with renaming variable properties?

Or something else?

Many thanks

I think I have solved it. All the data is still in the extended info dialogue box so I copiedthe extended info zoom image to product image but replaced:

Code: Select all

<img src="<Actinic:Variable Name="ExtendedInfoImage"/>"
	id="im-<Actinic:Variable Name="EncodedProductAnchor" />"
   width="<Actinic:Variable Name="ExtendedInfoImageWidth"/>"
   height="<Actinic:Variable Name="ExtendedInfoImageHeight"/>"
   alt="<actinic:variable name="ProductName" encoding="strip" />"
   title="<actinic:variable name="ProductName" encoding="strip"/>"
   />
with

Code: Select all

   <img src="<actinic:variable name="ProductImageFileName" />"
		id="im-<Actinic:Variable Name="EncodedProductAnchor" />"
      border="0"
      title="<actinic:variable name="ProductName" encoding="strip"/>"
      alt="<actinic:variable name="ProductName" encoding="strip"/>" />
This does mean the client keeps having to enter zoom images in extended info dialogue but he is used t doing that!

Unless there is a more elegant solution?

Thanks

You should be able to move the Extended Info Zoom Image settings with the Product ones.

Snapshot first!!!]

Do File / Export and go with the Defaults. This will create a hierarchical text file containing your site data.
Now look at the Header:Product line in the exported file. This will be a very long line. There will be variable names ExtendedInfoZoomImage0 .. ExtendedInfoZoomImage6 and ZoomImage0 .. ZoomImage6. Swap these names around. Re-import the file via File / Import and that's your images moved from Extended Info to Product.

I'm assuming that all the settings in Extended Info Zoom Images Control are set for the entire site so you just need to make the same settings for Zoom Images Control. Or do the same trick to move these from Extended to Product.
