Re: Thumbnail size in xc5

You need to extend the \XLite\View\ItemsList\Product\Customer\ACustomer class instead of \XLite\View\ProductBox one. Please, let me know if it works out for you.

Re: Thumbnail size in xc5
Thanks for the response Tony. As a temporary fix I went ahead and disabled the image re-sizing from the image.tpl template file.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the instructions. I have followed them and made the changes.

It didn't work and found that some of the directory listings are not the same for the version I'm using.

Ver. 5.2.4 (recently updated)

All I want to do is enlarge the "product_thumbnail" in the subcategories.php?

(I hope these are the right terminology)

Any tips, guidance would be appreciated as there is not much info on the latest version.

Cheers, Tom

The correct implementation of the \XLite\Module\Dev-ID\Module-ID\View\Subcategories class should be as follows:

PHP Code:


namespace XLite\Module\Dev-ID\Module-ID\View;

abstract class 
Subcategories extends \XLite\View\Subcategories implements \XLite\Base\IDecorator
    public function 
setWidgetParams(array $params)


In other words, you should decorate the setWidgetParams() method instead of defineWidgetParams() one.

Hello @Tomek,

Could you please send me the module you wrote? I will try to point the problem.

Thanks Tony for your quick response.
I have not written a module.
All I did, was edit the source files (of course made backups and restored back to original afterwards)
Fairly new to this, so might not understand all the jargon and how to's.

I have a simple tutorial that may help you tremendously: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGmeHJKP_c8

You do not edit anything in the core files. You always create a module for use in your store.

Tony also has a webinar recording about creating a module: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOzC7mknjwQ

And this KB article: http://kb.x-cart.com/display/XDD/Step+1+-+creating+simplest+module

Thanks Totaltec for all the information.

The first video definitely explains what needs to be done. So easy to understand!

Will need to go through a learning curve now and will let you now later how I go.

In the meantime, if there are any more simple tutorials, please post them,

Cheers, Tomek.

Re: Thumbnail size in xc5
Thank you Tony and totaltec for your help in this forum.

Once I understood about custom templates, the rest was fairly simple.
