Catalogue Image Thumbnail Size

Feb 29, 2012 9:59 PM

Tags: #image #catalogue

Question:

 

Does anybody know if there's a way to automatically create thumbnail images for the catalog thumbnails? I feel like I've tried everything and have been searching for threads on this topic but found nothing.

 

 

Here's what I'm doing:

 

 

<div class="shop-catalog clear">

    <h4>{ tag_name}</h4>

    <div class="image"><img src="{tag_image_value}?Action=thumbnail&Width=50&Height=50" /></div>

</div>

 

 

Oh, and I've tried the tag both with and without the _value in it. Neither works.

 

 

 

Answer:

 

There is no _value for catalog images or products and you can not use the thumbnail code on them. The catalog image is intended to be just a small image size, so you'll need to resize your images to appropriate size before uploading them.

    You could use CSS:

     

    <style>

        .shop-catalogue img {

             -ms-interpolation-mode: bicubic; /* for old IE browsers */

           width: 50px;

        }

    </style>

     

    You can also use the CSS overflow property to create a 'viewport' for a larger image with out resizing it.

    Shrinking a larger image though.

     

    In terms of product you do not have _value but you actually do have _path outlined at the bottom here: http://kb.worldsecuresystems.com/139/bc_1390.html?bc-partner

    {tag_image_path} doesn't render in the Individual Catalog layout though...

     

    We use a large(ish) image for each product and scale it to smaller sizes based on requirements throughout the site. This saves us a ton of work when 1000's of products are involved.

    Please I need help. How can I display thumbnails of all the catalog on a site in BC. Instead of the {module_cataloguelistdump} that only list the tag names of the catalog without displaying the catalogue thumbnail images. BC support told me I have to place individual catalogue one by one on the page, which I found inefficient, because in the future the client can increase the catalog and I have to go into the code again, instead of just adding the catalog.

     

    I will sincerely appreciate your help.

     

    Regards
