Surfshop Pro Demo store setup

Post by SeedGrower » Oct 06, 2009 8:48 am

I've been assigned a space on the surfshopcart.com website to test out a demo store.

Can I customize/change the default store image directory or access an image on my own website for the test? If not, can I assume that this won't be a problem once I'm running a live system on my own hosted server?

The relevant fields in the Store Configuration utility seem to be:

Relative path to image upload directory
and
Leave blank if not using image uploads. Ex: /ssimages/store

Thanks for any help.

You should be able to enter a full URL in the "Default header image URL" field on the Global Settings page, but I've never had a reason to try it. Let us know if it works. If it doesn't work in the demo, it will work on your own server, as you will be hosting your own graphics.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Here is the url image location when I put in an absolute address.

"http://www.surfshopcart.comhttp//afewgo ... /spot3.gif"

So it seems like this cannot be addressed in the demo.

Not a big deal.

Did you put both URL's in the field? If so, just put the one; http//afewgoodplants.com/spot3.gif

Actually, I just tried that URL in my browser and it didn't work, but this one did; http://www.afewgoodplants.com/spot3.gif

SeedGrower,

I just tried it myself and it didn't work. The store header field only accepts a relative URL, so it won't work with an image stored on another server. Sorry about that.
