Add multiple thumbnails in product detail page

Add multiple thumbnails in product detail page

I have a Data Assist site set up and I would like to be able to add multiple thumbnail images to the product detail page. Once on the product detail page, the user could click the thumbnail and a full size image would appear in the main image area.

I considered achieving multiple images using PowerGallery with an iFrame, but I would like to be able to do it all through the Data Assist product insert. I figured I might need to purchase a premiere ticket to get help with this but wanted to know if it was possible first.

It's posible.

you would need a new table for the images. in the product images table, use a linking column to relate the products.productID column:

productimages:
productimageID - Primary Key
productimageProductID - relates to products.productID
productimageImageName - stores the file name

from the admin product details page, add a link to the productImages admin page and pass the productID as a URL variable, for example.
prodictImagesInsert?id=55

use a file filed and a hidden element on the product image insert page. set the hidden element value to use the id URL Variable.

Add the file upload behavior.

in the insert, bind the productimageProductID column to the hidden form element, and bind the productimageImageName column to the WA Uploaded Files -> Server File Name binding.

on the catalog page, you can use a recordset to return the product images using the id URL Variable.

Jason, I hate to keep pestering you with this but I've messed around with this and realized that I have no clue how to do it. I have the new database table set up (I think) but beyond that, I'm lost. Would using Power Gallery be an easier way to have a gallery on the Product Detail page? If so, I'm not sure how to go about applying that or how the client would update the galleries. Would they do it through Power CMS?
