Sometimes a client asks to be able to manage certain areas of their Magento ecommerce website that would usually require access to template files. While this is okay, most clients consider HTML a foreign language and would probably do more harm than good. To remedy this, a lot of developers would consider creating a custom module. While this isn’t bad, sometimes it can require too much work if the client only wants to change one line of text! A much easier and quicker solution is to use a static block. Static Blocks can be included into your design in three main ways:

  • Inside a template file using PHP
  • Inside a content field of a CMS Page in the Magento admin
  • Inside the Layout Update XML field of a CMS page in the Magento admin

How to Add Images to Your Products

Adding an image to a product in Magento is simple. All you need to do is select the product which you want to add an image to from the product list available in the magento admin area -> Catalog -> Manage Products.

Once the product is selected, click the Images option available in the Product Information menu on the left.

Click Browse Files and locate the file on your computer which you want to use as a product image. Then click Upload Files to upload the image to your shop. Finally, label your image and choose where it should appear using the radio buttons on the right. Click Save to save your product’s image.

If you add additional up-sell products to your product, they are displayed in a table, at the bottom of your product’s view page.

By Default they are set 4 in a row, but this can be changed.

Locate the file app/design/frontend/your_package_your_theme/layout/catalog.xml, or copy it from the tefault package if it doesn’t exist under your package layout folder yet.

In this file look for the block that starts with <block type="catalog/product_list_upsell"...

Change the line <action method="setColumnCount"><columns>3</columns></action> to read <action method="setColumnCount"><columns>4</columns></action>(when 4 is your desired total in a row), and you’re good to go!
