When I woke up, this morning, thinking about it. I got the impression I could make my own "add to cart", and "View cart" buttons. And I just tell Opencart to associate the buttons to what they're meant to do.
One last thing. Once I've worked it all out. The design etc. Amd I able to save the template? Or do I need to write it all down, and do it again, once I've passed the website over to a host?
Thank you for all your advice by the way. You're a star! ;D


You can. A lot of people replace the CSS buttons with image buttons. Example, in 1.5.2.1 take this in product/product.tpl
Code: Select all
<input type="button" value="<?php echo $button_cart; ?>" id="button-cart" class="button" />

And make like this, filling in your image path:
Code: Select all
<a id="button-cart"><img src="catalog/view/theme/default/image/addtocart.jpg" alt="Add To Cart"/></a>

The id is what is important. id=button-cart

Hi first of all i would like to thank you for all your amazing hard work with opencart. I really like it and have recently been convereted from being a Zen Cart lover to OpenCart admirer.

Being new to opencart (and with tight deadlines) I would really appriciate if you could guide me and excuse me if this is not the right place to ask this question. However, i could not find answers anywhere else.

does opencart (or can opencart) automatically create additional product images from one main image file name? E.g. in ZenCart I just import one main image reference into products table e.g. 1234.jpg while upload the rest of related images into the folder 1234_a.jpg, 1234_b.jpg and 1234_c.jpg Zencart automatically picks up those additional images and associates them with the main product image (usually relating it to Product Model ID)

So in short Can opencart do this? if so, please advise. IF not, is there an extenion or mod that could do this?

Many thanks in advance

Hi .. a newbie query

Could someone please tell me if OpenCart can associate additional images automatically if they were found in the images folder by referencing it with product main image name or product model?

e.g. main product image = 123.jpg
additional images 123_a.jpg, 123_b.jpg (zencart automatically associates these without manually adding them to product)

thanks

Just go to LINKS TAB under product insert/edit and check off a category.

Thanks for topic. We have long been using 1.5 though the differences are not large from 1.4 but I think that the progress is good. Good version!!!
