Page templates and images

Postby nelleandlizzy » Fri Feb 21, 2020 12:10 pm

I am using BB.sst which includes BB-BXSliderCarousel.sst to build category pages.
The original size images are being selected and then scaled. This is causing extra delays in page loads.
How can I select one of the smaller sized images (ss_size1, ss_size2, ss_size3) instead of the original size?

The carousel is responsive so it will fill the area it is in with whatever size image you use. Most themes using the BB.sst page template display the carousel the full width of the page. You can switch your page template to the BB-InnerPageCarousel.sst page template (Pages > Edit Page Layout), and the carousel width will match the width of your page content instead of the width of the screen.

Thanks Lauren. The problem is not how it is displayed. I am very happy with the display. It is the size of the image that is being used. For example:

It is using /media/ring.jpg
I want it to use /media/ss_size1/ring.jpg

If I can provide the proper sized image in ss_size1 then there will be a reduced page load time.

Thanks!

You can do that by adding the /ss_size1/ in front of the image file name under Preferences > Carousel.

I think I may have confused myself and the situation!!

My pages are using BB.sst (shown below). The images are coming from bb-loopproducts? It looks like it is taking each product image, but I would like to also specify what resize to use. Here is an example:
https://www.nelleandlizzy.com/rings.html
The first product is using https://www.nelleandlizzy.com/media/double_5.jpg, but I would like it to be one of the ss_size images instead.

THANK YOU!!!!

Re: Page templates and images

It sounds like you want to adjust the product image size rather than the carousel under preferences > carousel. If that is the case, you can add the parameter SS_SIZE1 in the image tag. Also, note that you can set the preset/default for the image size under Preferences > Product Defaults, so that every time you add a new product it already defaults to a particular size image. However, if you want to bypass the ShopSite image size selection, you can force it in the template.

<img src="[-- PRODUCT.MoreInformationGraphic SS_SIZE1 URL_ONLY --]">

<img src="[-- PRODUCT.Graphic SS_SIZE1 URL_ONLY --]">

Note, if you are adjusting the product image size, then you would make that adjustment in the product template rather than the page template. The BB.sst page template matches with the BB-Product.sst templates (there are a few variations, but this is the default), which uses the BB-ProductDefine.sst include file for product layouts on category pages. You will likely want to make a copy of the BB-ProductDefine.sst include file, then re-copy your copy and rename it the exact same name as the original in order to override the original.

I hope that helps!
