Adding a "Learn More" button using eCart

Adding a "Learn More" button using eCart

I'm building a site with PowerStore2 and also own most of your other tools.
I've added a gallery component to the site (you can see a rough draft here Staceygallery.php ) using one of ProjectSeven's tools.

I would like to add a "Learn More" button as on Product_Results.php to each image in the gallery that would take you to Product_Detail.php.
I'm assuming the "Learn More" button in this case would be static and all the data regarding the images would be drawn from the database for Product_Detail.php using eCart components.
Some pointers would be appreciated cause I don't have a clue where to start.

Thanks
Mick

In order to best determine how to proceed with this I will need a little more description about the desired result. Would you like a user to click on the larger image in your gallery or a button next to it and go to the product detail page? Please describe this part a little more and I will try to give you some pointers to get you going in the correct direction.

Thanks Eric.

Clicking the larger image would be acceptable - though a button would probably be easier to understand (for the shopper that is).
P7 has a tweak that enables linking from the larger image seen here… answers.asp?id=231
It would not be a problem for me to regenerate the larger images to include a button as part of the image.

All of which is to say - I'm flexible.
As long as the end result is a trip to Product_Detail.php where I can add options of size, paper type, framing etc.

PS. Where is the server that handles these posts? I just noticed that the time imposed is 4 hours East of me which would put it somewhere west of England!?

It sounds like all that is left is to add in the link to the details page. Normally on the details page you would show details for a particular item based on the id. How do your images or the button for them relate to your products?

You just need to be able to add in the product id to the link that goes to the detail page, then the detail page will pull that items info to display.

Office Guy. Realizing that this is a virtual world I wasn't aware that it was necessary to post my queries during office hours. You will also note that my original response to Eric was posted just after noon yesterday.
Maybe I'm just confused but if I've done something egregious, please clarify. And thanks for the ipvac link.

Mick

PS I take back the thanks.
I thought the link was to something useful in my current quest.
You should take a closer look at #4.1

Thanks Eric

That was much easier than I expected.
Any thoughts on making a button appear next to the image would be nice. I haven't been able to make it happen myself.
Again, desired but not necessary.

Thanks
Mick

If you can add in your own html you can have an img tag next to the image and set the src to the button image. If you place a link around this you should be able to link to the detail page the same way the image does.

html:
<a href="http://google.com">
<img src="your buttom image.jpg"/>
</a>



If you are unable to edit the html around the image then it might not be possible to add this in.

I've tried similar tactics to no avail.
I'll talk to the guys at P7. I think there is a way.

Thanks
