VM Scroller
« on: September 30, 2009, 01:50:25 am »
Does anyone know if there is a file nameing convention for the thumbnails to be used in VMscroller ?

It seems to work ok and show the images of products that I used Virtumart to upload th image and Virtumart Auto Created the Thumbnails !, but any Thumbnails I FTP'd into the Products/resized folder directly do not display on the scroller ??

Anyone come accross this issue before ?

Cheers !!

Of course it doesn't. How should VM know what products your FTP'd images belong to? You have to create each and every product with it's images in VM backend.

That's a bit useless then.  I thought VM Scroller would dynamically go through my database of prducts and find the thumbnail assigned to the product id.   I have nearly 3000 products, I can't go in and auto generate every individual thumbnail !

What?  ???
If you just want to show random images from a folder there are other modules to do that. If you already have products with images that shows in your scroller why did you think it would be possible to just upload random images to resized folder and show them in the scroller? Of course it shows the images already assigned to products, how would VM otherwise be able to redirect you to the product when you click the image?

So you don't have images to all your products? I don't understand what you are trying to do.

I want the VM Scroller to showcase all of my Virtuemart products randomly.  The scroller shows the products with the price and the description and has an "add to cart" button. but getting another module that just shows images of the products loses all the functionality of the scroller. I really don't see why it cant pull images from FTP's images aswell as the auto created images.

hi,

Sorry for the late reply. I got the problem fixed. It was simply to do this the scroller movie used  _.root.  method when referring to the main time line and the controller movie. This doesn’t work for imported swf files that have been imported into other swf movies. Any how I got it sorted by replacing the “ _root. “ by pointing to the actual movies like so:

this.controller.gotoAndPlay2;

Any how I have attached to movies for you. I hope this helps

Cheers
