I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..
Dynamic mopics does it...it's my favorite, i've promoted it so many times on this board I'm sure people are getting tired of it.....
I've jus installed it, but there's no information as to how to name the pictures for each product..
Any examples of this in use? I might be able to figure out how to name the images from there?..
There is a thread on the use of dynamic mopics at:.
Once you understand the naming mechanism and make sure you do a "view source" on the pop-up images if you don't see anything. Read the thread to understand the way the naming mechanism works and how to trouble shoot it, otherwise you will probably pull your hairs out..
Works great though...
I think i'm getting it slowly (not had much sleep pulling hair out, deadline moved because "my bosses are not in") i.e. there gunna have time off, and I get to play secretary/groundskeeper/webskivvy for the day, oh joy of joys..
Is it like this?;.
Original image name = image.jpg ; goes in /images/.
Image name if has additional pics = image_pic.jpg ; goes in /images/.
But then how are the additional pics named?.
I have mild learning difficulties, and vtired so I'm having to read through the sentences about 3 times, and it's still not making much sense to me.
I want my life back.
Almost. I set it up like this: images_big extension: just "_" not "_pic" and the big images in a subdirectory: catalog/images/images_large. Additional thumbs in catalog/images/thumbs..
Now your main thumbnail (connected with the product through the database) goes in catalog/images and the large version of it (with the same name!) goes in catalog/images/large_images..
Then the additional thumbnails are named with the extension "_" and a number (1,2,3 etc) and go into /images/thumbs and the large pictures (with the same name) go into /images/images_large. You will have to start numbering with 1 though..
In short: main thumbnail: example.jpg in images, example.jpg (large version) in images/images_large. The first additional thumbnail: example_1.jpg in images/thumbs and the large version (example_1.jpg) in images/images_large..
In the default setup it would be example_pic1.jpg..
I hope this helps...
I'm going to try this out now, but if I don't load thumbs up for my additional images will it still resize the the additional images automaticall?..
Still got a bit confused by the fact that thumbnails MUST be used (or am I wrong?) so eventually put the same 2 pictures in every dir til it worked..
Would be much nice to have something like this contribution that didn't require thumbnails, then i'd try to incoporate an autoresize img contrib into to make it smoother..
Right, I didn't have it set to a dir for big images, i've deleted that dir now because it works anyway without it,.
Still would rather do this with auto generated thumbs..
