Adding picture on main page along with text


trophy

Recommended Posts

I would like to add in a picture on my main page nestled amongst the text.

I have tried many way's but keep getting errors and no shows.

After having given it a good shot I am forced to ask for help.

Edit the includes/languages/english/index.php file and include something like this in the TEXT_MAIN definition:

<img src="some image.jpg" title="some text" alt="some text" width="50" height="50" hspace="5" vspace="5">

Thanks jack for the quick reply.

I have tried your suggestion but are still getting errors is there a particular place this code should be placed?

Have included my index.php.

Yes, you have to upload the image to the images directory. Then try changing this

define('TEXT_MAIN','<br> <strong>HOBBIES PLUS</strong> Welcome\'s you to New Zealand\'s first and only website dedicated to the sale of slot cars and accessories.<P>

Only products that we sell are listed. <P>

We are slowly getting our products listed with about another 2/3rds to go. <br>
<br> Thanks for your patience.<br><b>Gill Andrews.<b><br>

<br><b>HOBBIES PLUS.<b><br>

<b> NEW ZEALAND.<b>');

to this

define('TEXT_MAIN','<br> <strong>HOBBIES PLUS</strong> Welcome\'s you to New Zealand\'s first and only website dedicated to the sale of slot cars and accessories.<P>
<img src="some image.jpg" title="some text" alt="some text" width="50" height="50" hspace="5" vspace="5">

You will still need to format the code so it places as you want.

Alll sorted with the pic getting to appear.

Now I need to find out what to use for pic positioning on the page.

I have tried to get this CSS coding to work but was unsuccessful.

<img src=”imageright.gif” width=”" height=”" alt=”" style=”float: right” />

I changed it accordingly, but still it is not working. in the main page there is a cross and the image is not coming.

 

Thanks

Try changing

<img src="credit_card_paypal_logos_2.jpg" title="some text" alt="some text" width="50" height="50" hspace="5" vspace="5">

 

to

 

<img src="[b]images[/b]/credit_card_paypal_logos_2.jpg" title="some text" alt="some text" width="50" height="50" hspace="5" vspace="5">

 

All we have done is to tell oscommerce that your image is in the images folder.

I too tried many of the suggestions here this evening without any luck. However I think I know why the image is not showing up - but I don't know how to correct this too see if this is the answer:

 

Looking in my images directory at item images, the image TYPE is listed as image/x-generic. The image I uploaded to show on the index.php shows as text/x-generic.

 

It does not appear this can be changed from the image menu. Both images have the same permissions, and both were uploaded using cpanel.

Ok I finally got this to work, but not really sure as to why. Here's what I did:

 

I created an image using Corel. When I saved the image, I used the generic 'save as' function. I went back and tried again using the Export feature and saving as a jpg. I then replaced the image uploaded earlier and the image TYPE changed to the correct type: image/x-generic

 

Then in my image path, I had to add /image, in my case for instance: /image/SeareySplash.jpg

 

All is well now! Jim

Vasi,

 

I googled last night 'changing text/x-generic to image/x-gerneric and came up with a bunch of info. Here's a thread that may assist:

I was just wondering, is it possible/how would I go about including php rather than html to include an image? I have a few extra images dotted here and there in my product descriptions - because it's only a few, I don't really need a contribution.

 

A while back, I decided to change my /images/ folder to something less generic, and I had quite a few broken images because of this. And so, I got to thinking, if it was php that pulled the /image/ folder instead of html, it would work better. I presume it would then take care of any SSL issues? So, instead of:

 

<img src=/images/myimage.jpg" alt="my description" width="150">

 

Could I have

<?php echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'myimage.jpg', 'my description', '150'); ?>

 

Would there be any issues with this?

OK I have been off this task for a while but I had some success.

This coding works now since I modified it, gives you complete control over width, height etc of the picture.

<img src="/images/picture.jpg" title="some text" alt="some text" width="150" height="150" hspace="15" vspace="55">

 

This code will install the pic as it is, the "size" will increase or decrease the pic to a size that is suitable for your application.

 

<img src="/images/picture.jpg" alt="my description" size="200">

 

only problem is the text part does not work in either, I am lost there.

 

I have been playing with it in "product description"

 

Have a look here http://www.hobbiesplus.co.nz/large-weegies-p-1215.html

 

hope this helps.

Edit the includes/languages/english/index.php file and include something like this in the TEXT_MAIN definition:

<img src="some image.jpg" title="some text" alt="some text" width="50" height="50" hspace="5" vspace="5">

When editing the TEXT_MAIN definition for the front page, is there a way to include tep_href links somehow? I want to include some links to elsewhere on my page but need to figure out how to maintain sessions here. Or for this should I just be editing root/index.php, not root/includes/languages/english/index.php?

 

Thanks

TEXT_MAIN example with two links, 1st uses an image, 2nd is text link

 

define('TEXT_MAIN', '
<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'oscommerce.gif', 'osCommerce') . '</a><br>
<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT) . '">Back to homepage</a>
');

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Thanks Germ. Great info. Five months after installing information pages unlimited I realized that I had an issue with sessions, and so I just uninstalled it and am rebuilding index.php the old-fashioned way. Could you tell me how to add a class to either of these two links? I'm really just trying to put a border around an image link on my front page that'll have a different color when a user hovers over it. I have the relevant lines in my stylesheet already, but can't figure out how to get the border to show up.
