Posting Rules
This forum was created to help 3dcart users share tips on getting the best out of the service, offer knowledge and experiences about e-commerce in general, and to promote a positive environment in which our merchants can request/dispense advice regarding best practices.

The forum was not created for 3dcart users to submit requests for customer support. Any support related thread will be removed and a support ticket will be placed on your behalf. If you have technical difficulties please visit http://support.3dcart.com.

The 3dcart forum is also not intended to be a medium in which to express dissatisfaction about 3dcart's service, policies or its management and staff. Threads of this nature will also be removed from the forum. If a support issue with your 3dcart store was not resolved in a satisfactory manner; or if you feel that a particular 3dcart offering/policy is not to your liking, please let us know by emailing [email protected] so we can address your concerns directly.

Again, our purpose is to cultivate a positive learning environment for our merchants rather than platform in which to express grievances.

Very Important Rules:
* Never give away your store administration login/password in this forum.

Should you need technical help, please let 3dcart staff help.
Also, please be aware that 3dcart staff will NEVER need to ask for your 3dcart related passwords.

General Rules:
* While debate and discussion are acceptable, we will never tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
* Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsensical posts, or similar postings.
* Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.

* Please wait at least 24 hours before bumping posts.

* We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
* We also reserve the right to remove postings which are in violation of our specified posting rules
* Also, while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently, we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
* You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
* You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.
* We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules, as access to our support forums are a privilege and not a right. A banned customer is still entitled to support from the support system, but will not be able to participate in the forum.

  • Image resizing and organizing - a few questions

    Hi: I want to resize the thumbnail images - I reset in Settings which didn't work - figured out that because I used the option to make thumbnail from main image that the images need to be redownloaded. OR someone said to batch resize in File Manager. I thought I would try that first but when I go to File Manager then Thumbnails folder, there's nothing there. They are all apparently in the same folder as all other images, which is very cumbersome. In fact, the imaging in general is very cumbersome. So, I want to clean up if I can - on to my questions:

    1. Do I need to reupload photos to make the thumbnails bigger? - eta I tested this and yes, I do.
    2. If I rename a photo in the Images folder, will they still work on the site? - eta I tested this and no, they don't - make sure the file name is what you want it before uploading
    3. Can I make categories in the Images folder to organize my photos so I can find them easier (and not have to scroll through all of them) and if so, will the images being in a different folder still work on the site?
    4. Why aren't there any thumbnail images in the Thumbnail folder? And if I move all thumbnails to that folder will they still work on the site - see Q3.
    5. Is there a maximum size that thumbnails can be? I basically want a relatively large thumbnail on cat and subcat pages if possible. Similar to this http://charmingnecessities.com/categ...e-Sundress.htm whereas see mine http://www.knot-dresses.com/Dresses-Tops-Sets_c_18.html

    Hi Katalone, I know this post is from waaaay back in 2015, but I wanted to ask if you ever worked out your Image organization questions. I am in the beginning stages of setting up a drop-shipping site, and I am about to add my first Product from a small Vendor, and I don't want to give her more work than is necessary. By the way, your shop looks GREAT!

    If there is a quick way to describe how you ended up organizing your images, I would truly appreciate hearing about it. I know you are a busy entrepreneur, and understand if you are unable.

    Thanks! ... Connie Z
