Static Cart Thumbnail Problem

Thread began 11/30/2011 6:52 pm by fxs430566 | Last modified 12/05/2013 9:49 pm by Jason Byrnes | 1475 views | 11 replies |

Static Cart Thumbnail Problem

Hi,

I am trying to set up a static cart with multiple items and respective thumbnails. I cant get the individual thumbnails to come up with their repective items. Since the cart displays the different items data correctly, why can't it correlate the thumbnails? I saw another post from 2010 but I couldn't find the "thumbnail" binding that you're supposed to replace with the "image name". I'm using CS4 and eCart5. Could someone please shine the light?

Hi.

Are you using a database for the products or have you entered the info ect manually on the pages?

No dB whatsoever, strictly manual.

If you aren't using any database why dont you then just then insert the image from the insert tab? What steps are you using for your cart and what is the link to your image that you are using?

if you dont have a thumbnail column in your cart already, you need to add one.

then in each add to cart button, enter the name of the thumbnail image to use for that item in the thumbnail column.

next create the cart display page when adding the cart display manager, go to the second page, make sure that the thumbnail column is added to the list, check the display as image option and select the thumbnails directory in the Image Folder section.

When I go to the ecart object the thumbnail column is not editable. In the add cart button I go to bindings and same problem, I don't know where to enter the name of the image...

In the add to cart button behavior, select the Thumbnail column, then enter the name of the image in the Default Value box.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm having the same problem. I've been working with a single static button and now I've got to add another static button. The products are similar enough that I need two different thumbnails, one for each product, in the cart so people know what they're ordering. I've created a column in the cart for my thumbnails:

<td class="eC_ProductThumb"><?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Thumbnail"); ?></td>

and the column is there. I also see the Default Value box in the Add to Cart Button, and I put the name of the thumbnail in it:

Images/Shop_Thumb_FrontView.jpg

but the eCart Object still won't let me edit the Thumbnail column to read as an image. I also can't delete it, and even if I could, any Thumbnail column I could add doesn't include the "View as Image" option. Thus, when I add this item to my cart, the thumbnail column shows the name of the thumbnail, in text.

Please help. Thanks!

change:

<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Thumbnail"); ?>

to an image tag:

<img src="<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Thumbnail"); ?>" />
