Display of products?
Author ICNJill on 06-21-2000 at 23:51 (EST)
Is it possible, in some way, to have products displayed two to a row... rather than every product below each other? I'm working on a site with a large number of products, and we'd like to be able to disable lines of two or three products at a time.

i.e.
--------------------------------------------

Product 1 Product 2 Product 3

--------------------------------------------

Product 4 Product 5 Product 6

--------------------------------------------

I'm not seeing any place to do this within the actual layout templates... some way of creating a cascading order.. of the products.

Also, is it possible to set it up so that when the category is displayed.. only the product image, title are displayed.. then, when they press on the link, they get to a page which lists all of the relevent product info? I know.. this is a reach.. but I just thought I'd ask. I've an art gallery client who would like to try this and we've seen it done on other shopping carts.

Please email your answer if possible!

In regard to putting multiple product listings next to each other on the same row, unfortunately there is no way to do that at this time. (*But see OPTION 2 below for an alternative solution).

In regard to only displaying the product image and title on a page which links to the page with the full product details, that ability is not incorporated directly into uStorekeeper, but there are two options that are close:

OPTION 1 : With each product listing, you can specify an HTML page that will be linked to when the customer clicks on the product's thumbnail image. This can essentially be used to link customers to a custom HTML page - with the full product details on it. Also, don't forget that you can specify any HTML tags in the listing's description field. This means that you can add additional hypertext links in the description field too.

OPTION 2 : Or as a different option - which may also satisfy your multiple products on the same row request - you can design regular HTML pages (*that only show the product images and titles) and which link directly to the uStorekeeper product listing. That is, on any regular HTML page, you can setup links directly to items in the store by appending the following onto your ustorekeeper.pl URL:

?command=goto&pid=PRODUCTID

where PRODUCTID is the ID of the product you want to link to.

See the following link to section 7.1 in the User's Guide for more information:
