The other day I spent some time “doing up” a site. I had a list of to-do’s and was basically given carte-blanche to do whatever was needed to make it work…
One of the requests was the ability for some products to have more than 1 image in the pop-up. I know that there are a handful of image mods available, but I wanted to do something that hasn’t been done before…
As I use “Fancy Box” quite a lot for thumbnail/large image purposes, I decided to utilise the core code and have an extra 5 images, for 6 in total;
1 thumbnail – used everywhere as per normal osCommerce
5 large images – used in the pop-up
Admin Section – product adding/editing page
In here I added the ability to upload an extra 5 images (in addition to the usual thumbnail).
Shop Section – product info page
The usual thumbnail image shows, when it is clicked on the old style popup is no longer used. In it’s place is “Fancy Box”. As you can see in the video, Fancy Box enables us to have a previous & next arrow system to scroll through the multiple images.
I think it looks good. What do you think?
