Using multi images on extended info page

Post by jennie »

Hi Norman

this may be a step too far...
The addon works beautifully on standard product pages, however, for some brands I use the extended info page for the full product info :
Extendedinfopagedesign layout is - Includes Add To Cart Button, with Standard Extended Information Image

I have amended the Standard Extended Information Image to include id="im-<Actinic:Variable Name="EncodedProductAnchor" />" to match your change to the standard product image layout.

I have simply added the extra image table to my layout and changed the references to the product image from "ProductImageFileName" to "ExtendedInfoImage"

My extra images are sized to 400 px wide which matches the sizes of the extended info images.

Strangely, it appears to work in the preview but when it is uploaded it get the following message....

Warning: getimagesize(lg610-109-400.jpg): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in E:\Program Files\Actinic v8\Sites\Site1\dpimagesupport.php on line 96 ERROR opening main image lg610-109-400.jpg!

Am I just not able to see the obvious here and/or I am looking at it too simplisticly?

A point in the right direction would be much appreciated
(I have removed the code from the live site)

Many thanks

Hi Norman,

I have a similar request, i have followed the instructions and the only thing i cant do is add your layout values to my ExtendedInfoPageDesign Layout.

Please accept my apologies if this doesnt make sense.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

Hi, Liam

I'm assuming that you're unsure how to go about adding something to a layout.

There are assorted tutorials in the Starter Guide (Start Menu / All Programs / Actinic v8 or v9) that should show you how to do this.

Let me know if I've misunderstood.

Hi Norman,

I have re-read through the user guide to see if there was anything obvious that i had not picked up on, and although it is probably down to my stupidity i am no closer to solving the problem.

Here are the examples of my issue, multi images works fine on section and sub-section pages http://www.big-av.co.uk/acatalog/All-Al ... tands.html but on the extended info page http://www.big-av.co.uk/acatalog/ad3105s.html i have managed to get the tables in but they wont change the main image.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

You need to follow an Addenda "Multi Product Images on Extended Info PagesV125-103.txt" to do this on the Extended Info pages. You've not said whether you've followed this or not. If you've not got it, then email me.

If you have used it, you've missed the step:

Code: Select all

Go to Design / Library / Layouts / Extended Information Image / Standard Extended Information Image
Look for the line

<img src="<Actinic:Variable Name="ExtendedInfoImage"/>"

Add the following just after that line:-

	id="im-<Actinic:Variable Name="EncodedProductAnchor" />"

OK out.
Norman
