Convert Picture to HTML

Recommended Posts

Sorry, If this is in the wrong place. You can call me Brother John if you wish. When you add a new product in WHMCS, in the description section can I add a picture of the product? If so how can I do that?

in the description, if the image files are uploaded locally to your WHMCS install...

<img src="assets/img/sandwich.jpg">
<br>
<b>Enjoy our delicious sandwiches!</b>

don't add https:// or http:// into the image URL (the colon will cause issues) - if they're remotely hosted images, you can use...

<img src="//domain.com/assets/img/sandwich.jpg">

for local images, you can to upload the images via ftp / cPanel file manager etc -and then reference their URLs in the description.

You should rename this without any spaces and also provide the correct file extension for best results

Sorry, but that does not help me at all. I do not know what you are talking about.

it's not a big community of those willing to help... I suspect you could count them on one hand.... definitely two hands.

with a better sized and more suitable image, it would look better (not that you should steal others images, it's just for show)...

that's an important suggestion to remember for the future - try not to include spaces in these image filenames - i've coded a space into the image url for now, but would be better if you didn't include them.

also, I know your site is using the "Modern" orderform template, but that hasn't been updated for years and might get removed in v8 - this will still work in there on your site (see below), but you might be better off switching to Standard Cart. (above images).

additionally, some of your image sizes might have to be defined in the descriptions - for now, i'm just using percentages, you might have to define them by a px dimensions, or css classes, for them to look correct in the products page...

there are a couple of product image addons in Marketplace, but they'd be $30-$40 USD and I personally don't see any real advantages of using them if you're capable of uploading and linking to the images yourself.

as I mentioned to the user who asked me about this originally (the sandwich shop idea wasn't invented just for you and this thread!), whilst WHMCS can show product images in this way, if it were me, i'd probably be looking at using a WordPress / WooCommerce / shopping cart solution rather than WHMCS - as there will be plenty of available themes/extensions that will make it easier to sell physical objects via those options... for example, WHMCS doesn't have a shipping cost calculator to determine the cost/method of sending goods to a purchaser, whereas the above will include multiple options for that.

throw enough money at it, and WHMCS can probably be made to do these things, but certainly not out of the box.
