Is it possible to show images as a dropdown menu?
« on: July 06, 2020, 18:10:33 pm »
Hi

I am trying to find a good solution for something but have had real trouble finding a solution after searching...

I run a weathervane shop, On each product listing the weathervane is listed and the customer currently can only select 1 bracket via a text only dropdown. I am looking to integrate a dropdown menu in the addtocart area that displays images and text e.g it shows the picture of the bracket and it's name or even if it just display an image that would also be fine

I wondered whether there is a way of displaying either images or images and text as a drop down list so that the customers can select the bracket they prefer? It would be similar I guess to selecting a colour preference so you have an image or image and text as an option for each entry in the dropdown menu

Just wondered if this can be achieved with Virtuemart out of the box with custom fields?

Here is a link to the shop showing what I have so far but with a text based drop down menu: https://weathervaneshop.co.uk/shop/copper-weathervanes/large-copper-verdigris-cockerel-weathervane-detail

I have done a couple of mockups. The first attachment is an image and text dropdown menu and the other one is an image only dropdown menu

Just wondered if it is possible to do something like this? I appreciate that my template my style the look a bit different to what I have mocked up but would be interested to know whether it can be done?

You can take a look at "VP Advanced Custom Field" - https://www.virtueplanet.com/extensions/vp-advanced-custom-field

You can easily create image dropdown list or image radio list using it. You can find the live demos here - https://demos.virtueplanet.com/?extension=vpac

I don't see image dropdown list in demo, only span with background color :)

(Of course I think image will be use with radio list, but there was not question about this).

Image drop-down list option is also available in the extension.
