    Unhappy Help with LowerLevel Subcategory page
    Hello,

    I have been using the "Trial version" of this software to get my feet wet to see if i can understand the basics before moving forward.

    I have read many posts, however am still a bit confused on maybe a few things. Hopefully someone can tell me what i am doing wrong.

    I am testing a 3-tier site and am confused with the "Subcategory" page (last page before my detail pages).

    1. Do you use the nolink feature here? I thought nolink was used for actual products/links that you do not want to link to the "detail page". However, i am seeing some tutorials with and without this attribute...so that is where my confusion lies.

    2. Also, My images aren't sizing properly...I have included the codes i am using below for reference:

    <P align=center><BR>[WM-Record cols=2 width=485][WM-IndexLabel: Subcategory1]<BR><A href="mysite.com/[WM-Field: Subcategory nolink].html"><IMG src="[WM-Field: Product_Image Thumbnail width=75 height=width nolink]" border=0>[WM-field: Subcategory nolink]</A><BR>[/WM-IndexLabel][/WM-Record]<BR><BR><BR><BR></P>

    I wanted to use an image pic next to the subcategory links to get people to click through to the detail pages. My images are not sizing at all and are still very big and loading slowly on the page.

    3. Lastly, I have the following products in my datafeed:

    Category--> Accessories-->Subcategory: Womens Handbags (3)
    Category-->Accessories-->Subcategory: Organizer Bags (2)
    Category-->Accessories-->Womens Makeup Bags (1)

    The results are showing

    link to Womens Handbag(1st handbag) link to Organizer Bag (1st Organizer)
    link to Womens Makeup Bags(1) link to Womens Handbag(2nd) bag
    link to Organizer Bags (2nd bag) link to Womens Handbag (3rd) bag

    If I have added the IndexLabel: Subcategory as shown above, shouldn't only "1" link for womens handbag and organizer be showing???

    Any help is greatly appreciated on this as i am taking baby steps and want to get this right...

    Ok - changed the height and width attributes and this definitely worked. I was totally stumped with this. Thank you!!!

    Now for this issue:

    I have the following products in my datafeed:

    Category--> Accessories-->Subcategory: Womens Handbags (3)
    Category-->Accessories-->Subcategory: Organizer Bags (2)
    Category-->Accessories-->Womens Makeup Bags (1)

    The results are showing

    link to Womens Handbag(1st handbag) link to Organizer Bag (1st Organizer)
    link to Womens Makeup Bags(1) link to Womens Handbag(2nd) bag
    link to Organizer Bags (2nd bag) link to Womens Handbag (3rd) bag

    If I have added the IndexLabel: Subcategory as shown above, shouldn't only "1" link for womens handbag and organizer be showing and not repeating itself later on down the page??? The IndexLabel tells webmerge to display the links when the field name changes right???
