  • How to Use Custom Fields for Graphics and/or Links?

    Would anyone happen to know if we can use the Custom Fields for adding a small graphic? I would like to use small symbols to represent certain traits (such as vegan, gluten-free, etc...) for each product and haven't been able to figure out a simple solution. Ideally, the person could click on the graphic and it also would be a link to a description of that symbol. Can this be done in 3DCart?

    There is no built-in way to do this easily, but can be done if you are comfortable with template files, and HTML.

    You could probably just put the HTML itself into the extra field:
    HTML Code:
    <img src="/path/to/my/icon.gif">
    and then arrange the template file to show it in the right way. You could also use javascript to make it a little bit slicker.

    Basically there are any number of ways for a developer to do this, but not a built in way for a standard user.

        Totally possible. We are doing this with Field 2 in the custom fields for promotions. We have a little icon, so I don't see why a link won't work. I do believe there is a character limit on the first five fields, though.

        Here's a peek at ours. It's the iTunes icon. http://www.oldwillknottscales.com/se...yword=ohaus-ax
