Adding additional product images to the PROD screen
Posted by - NA -, Last modified by Jen Ferraz on 30 March 2011 01:10 PM
Using custom fields, products can be assigned additional images to display on the Product screen in MIVA Merchant 5.5 Production Release 7 and EARLIER. Stores using Miva Merchant 5.5 Production Release 8 and later already have built-in additional product images. We recommend stores using older versions apply available updates to their store to keep the software up to date.


The easiest way to add additional images is to use the Custom Fields feature to call up extra images.  The benefit of this method is that you can move the images around on the page using Store Morph Technology.  

1.      Log into your MIVA Merchant 5 admin and expand your store.  
2.      Click on Utilities and assign Custom Product Fields.
3.      Create a Custom Field called Image2 (or whatever you wish to name it)
4.      Go to Products and Edit a product you wish add an additional image to.  
5.      Click on the Custom Fields tab and enter the html code to call the image into the text field.  


Example:

<img src="graphics/00000001/image.jpg">



6.      Go to Pages and click the Edit button for the Product Display Page.
7.      Click on the Product Display layout tab and assign the Custom Fields to the page in Point and Click mode.  (Note: if you are already in Advanced mode, you can add the code manually like this:

 


<mvt:if expr="NOT ISNULL l.settings:product:customfield_values:customfields:Image2">
&mvt:customfield_names:customfields:Image2;:
<b>&mvt:product:customfield_values:customfields:Image2;</b><br>
</mvt:if>


You can add this code anywhere on the page.  If you do not want the Name of your Custom Field to show up on the page, omit this line:
&mvt:customfield_names:customfields:Image2;:
