When I add items to my online store is there any way to make the pictures smaller and make the full sized picture open by clicking on the small image? also is there any way I can make my site have more graphics or find a different style or layout?

Hi Tina,

1) Upload the thumbnails (the smaller pictures) with the file manager (you will find it under the "Site Manager" tab)

2) Drop a text widget on your page and add the thumbnails by clicking on the "insert image" icon on the text editing toolbar

3) Create pages where full size versions of the images are displayed

4) To make the thumbnail a link to the full sized image, click on "choose a link" in the properties sidebar and a link editor will open up that will allow you to create a link to the relevant page. Browse for the page you want and click "ok"

5) When you are done, remember to go to "Edit Menu" and drag all the pages with the full size images "out of the menu" so that they do not appear in the main menu of your site.

You need to have the same style for each page of your site. However, if you have selected a style with a customisable banner, then you can have a different banner image for each page of your site. Giving some customisation, but still retaining an overall coherent look and feel to your site.

Hi Tina

Unfortunately there is no way to do this for an Online Store yet. The current Online Store is only the first version of this feature and it is very basic. We will be enhancing it and adding new features in future. The ability to make clickable thumbnails as part of the online store is one of the requests we are considering.

I am sorry we can't be of more help with this right now.

Actually what i have done is inserted a picture widget, uploaded the image. I use photobucket and it has a very handy lil thing for thumbnail images.

Click on your image on your site builder then open properties, Click the "choose a link" option, paste the "direct link code from photobucket" and voila....when someone clicks the image a new page will open with the full size version of your pic.

goto: http://www.stylestock.com/fragrances-...

click on any fragrance image and you will see what I mean.

Hope this helps you and is what you meant.
