how to upload more product images
« on: August 06, 2012, 15:35:42 pm »
Okay I must say, virtumart 2.0.x SUCKS. I go to product list and use the media colum, open another page where I'm supposed to upload another image for the chosen product. I select the image, upload it, it says it was successfully saved but nothing happens. In front end it still shows just one image and in the back end the media colum shows 1 image even after upload of a second. WTF?

Can anyone help?

Yes I do select that. When I click apply it says media successfully saved, yet it never appears anywhere. Not the front end not the back end.

Thanks for a quick reply. Hopefully someone can tell me wtf is wrong here?

Hi ziga,

Goto your product edit page. Click on the tab "Product Images". There should a fieldset block called "IMAGES"... click the +16 and you should get a list of available images you want to ADD to the current product.

It's a bit buggy, but that's how you get extra product images in your products.

I hope this helps.

I have the same problem of adding extra images. It was so easy in the older versions of VM. Anyway, I had already tried clicking on the +16, but it only gives me 16 images and I see no way of navigating to the other image. The image I'm looking for is not one of the 16 shown. Is there some way to navigate this list of images?

Thanks in advance!

do you know the names of the images?

start typing it into the text box and the system will narrowing down the +16 list.

That worked perfectly. I don't know why I didn't think to try that.

I really appreciate the help Ivus.
