    Detail page not working
    Answer is probably staring at me in the face but...

    Products have choice of type, size, etc.

    I have an index page based on product title. Details page based on title showing image & description then a table underneath showing variations of product together with price, buy it, etc.

    This is how I have written details page...

    <h1> [WM-Field: Title]</h1>
    <p align="center"><a href="[WM-Field: ProductURL]">[WM-IMAGEPATH: ImageURL]</a></p>
    <p align="center">Artist: [WM-Field: Artist]. &nbsp;&nbsp;[WM-Field: Description]</p>
    <table width="100%" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>[WM-RECORD]
    <td width="19%"><font size="2">[WM-Field: ProductType]</font></td>
    <td width="34%"><font size="2">[WM-Field: Series]</font></td>
    <td width="34%"><font size="2">[WM-Field: ProductWidth] x [WM-Field: ProductHeight]</font></td>
    <td width="47%"><font size="2">&pound;[WM-Field: ArtPrice]</font></td>
    <td width="47%"><font size="2"><a href="[WM-Field: ProductFramed]">See it Framed </a></font></td>
    <td width="47%"><font size="2"><a href="[WM-Field: ProductURL]">Add To Cart </a></font></td>
    [/WM-RECORD]</tr>
    </table>

    It doesn't work so what am I doing wrong? When finished building all it shows are the wm-fields

    Hi Jill,

    First thing, instead of using this "WM-IMAGEPATH: ImageURL" use this "WM-Field: ImageURL"

    Next, the "WM-Record" tags are used on index pages only, not for detail pages. So that won't work.

    I realize you may be trying to display more than one product on a detail page, but that's a little more complicated than can be explained here. I think Richard from FourthWorld explained it in a post last week, you might want to do a search for that, it was a good example.

    Sorry. You can use the email at my site if you like, I might be able to help from there.

    Typical ! The first time I look and try a program the thing I want to do is not straightforward <G>

    Thanks Fred, I shall see if I can find the previous topic

    Could you tell me why you suggested changing IMAGEPATH to FIELD? I've just tried that and whilst it showed the graphic before it is now merely showing the location (it's remote, offsite)

    The WM-ImagePath tag is a simple convenience for quickly adding images to a page, but doesn't offer as much flexibility as writing your own IMG tag with WM-Field for the URL:

    <img src="[WM-Field: ImgUrlField raw nolink]">

    See the WebMerge Help page on the WM-Field tag for details on the optional raw and nolink attributes.

    Thanks Richard

    It didn't work when I changed it to WM-Field because I hadn't put <img src="[ <G>

    I changed the layout making a further details page and it's now working fine.
