Title: displaying images by category / color
Post by: melsonmarketing on August 08, 2013, 16:34:28 pm
Hi everyone!

I'm actually working on a site, dealing with workwear.
As it's for the medical sector the unusual part is, that they offer tons of colors instead of "white only"  :D

Now my customer would like to display the products by "colours available" - no problem so far as we created a category for each colour.

BUT!

The biggest wish is to diplay only the related images within the colour-category  :-\

So if you click on Colours => red, only red (thumbs) should appear and so on.

Here's a link (the site isn't live yet): http://web1550.webbox555.server-home.org/FC2013/farben/rot

Any ideas - I searched a lot but didn't find anything  :(

Thanks for any tip or help!

You didn't say in plain words what is your problem.

Sorry   :)

Let's try to explain it this way:

- We have a shop (VM 2.0.22a on Joomla 2.5.14)
- 60 categories within the shop, whereof 20 are made to display products "ba colour"
- abt. 200 products, partly in multiple categories
- most products are available in different colours (white, green, blue, red...)
- each product has (as usual) a MAIN-IMAGE plus additional images to show the other colours
- a thumb of the MAIN-IMAGE is shown in EVERY CATEGORY

Standards so far ;D

And now the tricky part:

The shop-owner would like to show the colour-related thumbs (for example thumb of green shirt in the subcategory "green").

As far as I can see,  the thumbs are general generated from the MAIN-IMAGE and appear in EVERY CATEGORY.

Hope it's clearer now  :-\

The question is:

Is there a way to assign thumbs of additional images to specific categories (for category-view)?

You could show additional product images on category page. I saw thread called "How to display all product images on the Category page?" on forum. Did you at least try forum search button?

Yes certainly I could show additional thumbs on the category page and certainly I searched this and other forums in many different ways  ;D

If you follow these Links you will see what we mean:

http://www.clinicdress.de/damen?color=red

http://www.clinicdress.de/herren?color=yellow

The linked shop is made with magento

You said 'related images' and not 'related products'.

You could make clones or childs for each color.
