Pics in product description


QueenKat

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have a pic in the actual product description? I know I have the option of having a pic for my product, but I sell craft supplies and my customers want to know how to use the products and the only way I can think of is to have a sample posted with the description.

 

Or, is is possible to have a CLICKABLE link in a description and if so, what's the coding needed to write it into the description..

 

Please help..

 

thanks

its a contribution

or you can also do it the die-hard way by manually adding the html into the products description.

 

 

LOL!! unfortunatly, since I suck at installing contributions, I think I will have to go die-hard! :( Would this code work:

 

<img> url </img>

 

or how should it go?

Hey FixItPete, I don't see it at the top of the page... I only see it in the desc.. You are talking about the HUG distorted add to cart button aren't you??

 

 

Yes.

 

In Netscape and FireFox it is at the very top of the page and in the description...

 

In IE there is a "> at the top of the page...

 

Any ideas how I can fix that?

I don't have netscape or FF on this computer.. But, I see your problem in IE... the "> when you installed the html code, did you alter it?

 

I installed it in my shop and it works fine... If you alter the code more times then not, it gives you funky results.. my suggestion is to take out the code you entered and then copy it exactly as enigma had it and paste to your site. then ONLY alter the things I put in red. That should solve the problem.

To make a long story short. I think enigma's code is good. I think there is a deeper problem that I need help with... enigma... you lurking about?

Oh now I see it reading your second post. It's some metatags contribution parses your description text and then decides to add the image as a meta-tag for some reason. Ask the people in the contribution support for it.

That's what I do and it's fine by me. I leave out the

"

on my HTML images and it works fine with no unnecessary /////'s :)

I tried the old <img> code too... had the same problem. I gave up for now... if anyone wants me to put it back (so my link above does it again) let me know, I'd love to fix it!!

 

Thanks, Pete
