Gallery function in PS3 query

Gallery function in PS3 query - support level ???

I have PS3 and PG installed. Customers can see the product page with the scrolling powergallery pictures at the bottom. They click on the gallery, then scroll through it. They see an image that interests them. But there seems to be no way to go from the "view" of the new picture to the Product Page of the new picture?

Have I done something wrong in my installation, or is that the way that it works.

If that is the way that it works, has any other developer found a way of solving my dilemma?

you should create a gallery for each product, then use the database integration update form the power gallery download to integrate the galley as the description in the power store product detail page.

I am definitely getting confused here. My products are in sub-categories. Each sub-cat is a separate gallery. It is the sub-cat gallery that I have put in the long description of the product detail page. I want to see the sub-cat gallery on the Product detail page, and then scroll through it. This works nicely, thanks.

If I make a gallery for each product, and insert the product gallery in the long description of the product detail page, how will the user be able to scroll through the sub-cat gallery from the product detail page?

Or is this a blind leap of faith on my part, and I should "just do it"?

Gallery function in PS3

The customer has come back with another request. What he would like visitors to the site to see is the Gallery when they click on the main "Products" link on the top menu, and when they click on Category / Subcategory. And from the Gallery, to go to the product detail page.

So, three questions:

1. Has anyone done this, and is willing to give guidance?
2. Does WebAssist have any advice as to how to achieve this?
3. Or does this question come under "paid for support"?

So you want each image in the gallery to be a separate product in PowerStore?


for this you would need to add each separate image as a product in PowerStore

Then, product by product, go to the detail page and make note of the ProductID querystring variable for that product, for example:

products_detail.php?ProductID=14


Then in power gallery add a link to the product detail page in the image details passing the ProductID value:
<a href="products_detail.php?ProductID=14">Purchase this image</a>

Would it be better with PS4?

Working on your response. I can see what to do, but not sure I could ever hand it over to edit / update to the professional photographer who has commissioned it. I'm writing a "cookbook" with specific keystroke by keystroke instructions for him, but this might be a step too far.

So since Friday is last day for cheap upgrade price, can you tell me ... would this be easier with PS4 (ie gallery image links directly to the Product Detail page of the image being viewed). If answer is "yes", then a brief note on "how it is easier" would help push me to buy.

no, it would not be any easier in PS4, it would require the same methodology.


There is no way to automate the process of linking a gallery image to a PowerStore product.
