Expanding on the original post - WHMCS is not currently pursuing introducing this sort of functionality. WHMCS is dedicated to providing the best automated billing software that we can, and out shopping carts and experience is focused on provided customers with an easy to use cart process for selling domains and hosting products. While we are excited we have customers using our platform for other industries, we have to keep track of our focus.

WHMCS will continue to release new order forms and refinements to the shopping cart experience, so please be on the look out for updates to the product in the coming months.
Please can we have a solution soon?
thank you
For every product, we want to put the image, click on it and then go to the next step

If only that were true ;)

The modern cart wont display images from the product description, because it is "interpreting" the ":" in the url to the image
One option is to disable "Feature Highlights," that is, the default use of the ":" See http://docs.whmcs.com/Standard_Order_Form_Templates toward the bottom of the page.

I understand. Thanks for taking the time to discuss it with me. In the meantime i'll take you up on your kind offer and drop you an email and see what can be done through the template files :o)
Brilliant! Is it something that is likely to be implemented at all? I just don't really want to keep hanging around if not. I'm not saying that as a 'you're gonna lose a customer threat' at all, i'm not that kind of person and i would continue to use WHMCS for my hosting and design business but i'd rather just move the other business away next year :o)

Hello Andy,
When you elaborate on the need for thumbnail images, it does make more sense to have it controlled by the software rather than the user.
Hi Chris,

You didn't upset me at all mate, you'd need to a damn site more to do that lol. That's the problem with emails and such as the reader can often read it back to themselves in a different tone than the one in which it was written and things can be taken completely out of the context intended so i apologise if i gave that impression :o)

Please don't take this as being patronising because it genuinely is not intended that way but have you ever used a different shopping cart script? The likes of OsCommerce and ZenCart not included as they haven't really grown since the dinosaurs walked the earth! lol.

Imagine if a product has 5 images for example. If you were to use the current html box in WHMCS products you would need to create thumbnails for each image and then write the html so that the product description displayed a nice main image with the other 4 thumbnails positioned underneath (in this example), link all those thumbnails to their larger brothers, write the jQuery for them to show up on hover and then write the extra html for the text description.
With a shopping cart you don't need to do any of that because it's already been coded for you. All you need to do is upload the 5 images and write the text description in the RTEditor. All the thumbnails are automatically generated and linked up. It may take 2 minutes to select your 5 product images and type your description. No coding necessary! Manually writing all that html etc may take an hour or more!

Does that make more sense?
Hello Andy,


My response was not meant to upset you. So I do apologize for that.
Adding an <img src="URL"> code to the product description in my opinion didn't seem any more time consuming that clicking a potential browse button and searching for the image. If you'd like a tip on how to easily associate images with products automatically by using the template files, feel free to send me an email at: chris.borsheim [at] cpanel.net I've changed the request to "Requires Feedback", rather than "Implemented" so we can gain more community input.
Your suggestion means forcing WHMCS users to manually code html for the product listings which is so much extra work and you are presuming that everyone knows how to code html. Your suggestion involves so much extra work and when you have 100's of products having to manually code the html, create image thumbnails, link those thumbnails to larger images blah blah blah. The whole point should be about making things as easy as possible for WHMCS users!

You guys really need to understand that not every WHMCS user is a hosting or web design business! I've been waiting for this feature to be implemented for over 4 years now and with over 400 products for sale doing all that manual coding for each product would take forever!

PLEASE start considering the needs of your non hosting customers before it's too late. After 4 years of having to use an additional shopping cart script to manage product pages and informational pages and then manually linking my WHMCS cart links to each product i can honestly tell you that i've had enough of all this extra work and when i redesign my website in the new year i genuinely fear i'm going to give up on WHMCS. There is no doubt that WHMCS is amazing and i love using it but i've had enough of having to manage WHMCS for the back-end and OpenCart for the front end because i want to spend my time on growing the business instead of design and coding :-(
Hello,

As MemoryX2 Expressed, this can already be done within the product description by inserting HTML code ie:<img src="./path/to/image.jpg">
This is already possible using the product description. HTML is allowed, just write in a link and you can use pictures.
