You can upload images using Squirrelcart, or using FTP.
Uploading using Squirrelcart
1. Open a record with an image field
You will need to open a record, and navigate to an image field that you want to assign an image to.
2. Click the Browse Button
3. Locate the image
You should now have a dialog box asking you to select an image file. Locate the image that you want to upload on your computer, and select it. The field to the left of the browse button should populate with the path to the image file you just selected.
4. Submit record
Click at the bottom of the page
5. Confirm upload
You should see something similar to this:
You will be returned to the table that you were working on.
If you receive an error when attempting to upload, it is most likely due to a problem with permissions. Check the installation section to make sure you assigned permissions properly.
Uploading using FTP
We recommend that you upload your images using Squirrelcart, as described above. You can, however, upload images via FTP if you wish.
1. Determine which folder to upload to
You will need to upload your images to the correct folder within your images folder. This is the same "images" folder that you uploaded during the installation. See below to determine which folder you will be using:
For product images --> images/products
For category images --> images/categories
For product option images --> images/product_options
2. Upload your images
This varies depending on your FTP client. See your FTP Client's documentation for instructions.
3. Change permissions (optional)
If you want to be able to modify (or overwrite) these images with Squirrelcart in the future, you will need to CHMOD each image file to 777. See the "Setting File Permissions" topic as a guide.
4. Assign images to records
After uploading your images, you will need to assign them to records. To do this, see the "Assigning Images to Record Fields" topic.
