    If possible what would the entry look like? xxx.jpg,xx1.jpg or xxx.jpg:xx1.jpg, xxx.jpg;xx1.jpg ?

    Thanks

    The field can take whatever your store will be able to process provided characters are properly escaped.

    For a default ZC store, the field contains the path to the base image that is then used to identify additional images. It is not the image itself, just a "pointer" to the location of the image. That pointer is then used in your store to complete the path to the picture.

    v_products_image refers to the main image and assumes the image is located in <website root>/images/ folder

    if you organize your images INSIDE the /image folder, then you would add that to your image path

    say your image is:

    <website root>/images/books/bible.png

    then you would put "books/bible.png" in your v_products_image column.

    For multiple images, review the instructions here:

    hope this helps

    Thank you for your responses Gentlemen. However, what I am trying to avoid is to have to add additional images using Image Handler to add additional product pictures manually for each individual product. I am looking for a way to be able to add the additional picture links within the EasyPopulate plugin to accomplish this task. Product A would point to imageA.jpg and imageA_1.jpg etc.

    Best regards,

    Frank

    Additional product images are 'assigned' buy the file name of the image file. They are not assigned to the product in any way. This plugin does not upload any images, those need placed on the server separately. Use this to assign the main image. Upload the main image and any additional using the proper naming convetion.

    We were both saying the same thing in different approaches.

    As chadderuski stated, if the image for Product A is product_A.jpg and the image is to be in the images/category_i_chose_directory folder then in EP4 no matter how many additional images there are, you would populate the field with category_i_chose_directory/product_a.jpg.

    Then product_a.jpg would be the main image and product_a_1.jpg would be loaded just like all of the other additional images.

    EP4 does not upload the image, it uploads the path in the database field used to present and process images.

    In order to upload all of your actual images you could use ftp to do so, after they have been named to align with the primary/main image filename base as described in the link chadderuski provided and as you have indicated to want.

    So let me see if I understand this correctly. As long as I populate the v_products_image column in the easypopulate csv file with productA.jpg and then upload via ftp two files into the same directory. One being productA.jpg and the other productA_1.jpg the product info page in the storefront will show both images??????

    Frank the Confused!

    Well I'll be a Monkeys uncle, I just tried it and it works AOK. Now all I need to figure out is how to get the additional image to open up with lightbox like the original image instead of a regular browser popup window. Any hints!

    Thanks to all.

    Wrong thread to discuss, but usually involves making sure the javascript is installed to the correct includes/modules/pages directory and/or properly merged the applicable files. It also depends on other factors, but usually its all about the install.
