The e-commerce.

put link in product description


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


I want to put an image with an embedded url link onto my catalog using product description. When i put it in the image would appear but admin would not allow me to update it. I am assuming this is because the product description does not allow html etc.


i am trying to put this code in


<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">

<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_oe-gift-certificate">

<input type="hidden" name="business" value="[email protected]">

<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="5.00">

<input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="0">

<input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1">

<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP">

<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-GiftCertBF">

<input type="hidden" name="fixed_denom" value="5.00">

<input type="hidden" name="style_color" value="BLU">

<input type="hidden" name="shopping_url" value="http://www.ladyjcrafts.co.uk">

<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_GB/i/btn/btn_giftCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online.">

<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_GB/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">



i have tried both with and without html and body tags on it.


any help would be great?

It's not the html for the image that's the problem - it's the 'form' commands that won't work.


For osCommerce you need to look at using one of the Gift Vouchers/Discount Coupons contributions.


They can be big installs so if you don't want to go down that route then you can always add Gift Vouchers as products, enable downloads in osCommerce admin, give the Gift Vouchers a zero weight, and make sure all other products have a weight attached to them. But if you do this then I'd advise installing Downloads Controller as well, to prevent fraud.
