Improvements to Product.File_List and Product.File_Form?
« on: February 05, 2008, 04:24:17 am »
Have to say I've been impressed with the development of VirtueMart 1.1 so far and I like the direction the product is heading.  However, I've ran into a slight decision (or omission) when it comes to the product file manager in relation to additional images. 

It seems strange that when you directly edit a product, you can specify a product image and choose to automatically create a thumbnail OR specify a specific one to be uploaded.  When you view this same set of images through the file manager, you can upload an image but only choose to check "Auto-Create Thumbnail" -- you need to specifically pick "thumbnail image" from filetype to upload a specific thumbnail.  Is there any reason why this UI is so different?

In addition, and perhaps more glaringly, you can't specify thumbnails for any additional images -- VM can only auto-create thumbs for additional product images and you have no way to change them.  Is there any work or easy mod to alleviate this?
