I am selling clothes, specifically tops. These tops come in different colours. I have placed a colour attribute (drop down list) for each style. I was wondering is there any way of achieving the following, when a user clicks on a colour the image shown on the page changes to the colour of choice. I'll be grateful for all help.

There is no current contribution to achieve that. You would have to create one or hire a developer to develop one for you.

Around the 'net there are osCommerce plug ins for this, however the only ones i have ever tested are pricey, buggy and not supported as they ought to be.

A couple of lines of jquery will accomplish what you want. In essence made simple; you need to link an already uploaded image to the attribute.

Eg; attribute = pink. Image = pink.gif

Now use the html of jquery. There are loads of tutorials out there already, another one is not needed here.

You can make it more complicated by allowing the shopowner to upload the images per attribute from within the admin. There is already a addon that allows this, that would need to be tied into the product_info page.

This is a signature that appears on all my posts.  It is not specifically aimed at you.


IF YOU MAKE A POST REQUESTING HELP...please state the exact version of osCommerce that you are using. THANKS
If you are still on the old style osCommerce, it is time to move to Responsive.
