  • 'search' result images

    When I use Search on the Store front page it returns the results but with 'No image available it is searching for the images at http://dev.vitaevalue.com/mm5/themes...g_no_thumb.jpg however my images reside in the domain root graphics/ not mm5/themes/etc.
    Perhaps I need to change things but here is why I do this. I have 3 stores(mall) I keep my images out there so as not to need to have the same image 3x and it makes it easier to manage images (for me).
    I am still using Legacy and have been told I ought to use Image Machine, so I won't have thumbnails and images and here I also have a question will speed no be affected having to resize the image? I mean sure it will save me having to batch images via Photoshop to create thumbnails then images from original but is there a drawback not doing so?

    My question is if I stay with what I have (Legacy Images) where do I find the reference calling for the images in the Search to change it to graphics/ from http://dev.vitaevalue.com/mm5/themes/levels/images/

    Again you folks that understand what is going on better feel free to advise me if I should change to Image Machine, but I would still want to pull the images from /graphics/images and not from inside mm5 (so the 3 stores pull from one directory)
    Hope I was not too confusing.. Dyslexic brain here..

    Thanks!

  • By default, all ReadyThemes are designed to use Image Machine which allows for dynamic resizing of images making it so you only have to upload your largest sized image and let the software do the rest. To update the path to your image, you can edit the Search Result Layout section of the Search page in the administration portal.

    • How do I get it to pull the images from the site root /graphics/images instead of /mm5/themes/levels/images/ ?

      • You would have to change the path to the image source in the IMG tag to relate to your custom code:
        Code:
        <img src="/graphics/images/........" alt="&mvte:product:name;">

        • For the 'Search' where would I find the code that it resides in, what page would it be. I can see the code in Google Chrome just can't figure where in Miva it is.

          • In your administration portal, you will navigate to User Interface -> Pages -> SRCH -> Search Result Layout
