Default detailed images in place of thumbnails in products.tpl

Anyone know how to add the detailed images to the products page in place of or in addition to the thumbnails?

I'm real close to putting it all together but I need a direction to go. Will I need to edit the database and/or php files or will it be just the template files?

Any suggestions are appreciated

Here's the way I usually do it. Look for this code in product.tpl:

Code:
{include file="product_thumbnail.tpl" productid=$product.productid image_x=$product.image_x image_y=$product.image_y product=$product.product tmbn_url=$product.tmbn_url id="product_thumbnail"}

replace it with this:

Code:
{include file="modules/Detailed_Product_Images/product_images.tpl" }

Then just edit the detailed product image template as required to get it to show up the way you want it.

Thanks for the quick reply. I don't think I made myself clear. I want to replace the thumbnails in products.tpl, not product.tpl.

Here's an example:

I'm trying to get the detailed images from

http://www.puttinggreensturf.com/product.php?productid=16176&cat=252&page=2

to show up on

http://www.puttinggreensturf.com/home.php?cat=252&page=2

That's why I need some direction, it seems that there are going to be a few files for me to edit.

Doh! Sorry about that. So you want a whole bunch of detailed images next to each product in the products display? Isn't that going to be a bit nuts?

Yes, it will be. It will also make it load slower. I went over both of those with the site owner but that's the way he wants it done.

I sat in front of the computer screen for about 4 hrs today and didn't get anything accomplished ~ bah!

And of course...the customer is ALWAYS right

If I get some free time tonight I'll take a look at it for you....
