Sending an image to the Hikashop checkout

User adk 2018-12-18 09:27:26

With reference to my ticket #1726 I have posted on the Hikashop forum the question: Is it there a way to give a picture to the hikashop checkout?.

They answered:
"The image is not stored in a different table. The image path is stored in the same table. It's only the image data which is stored in the upload safe folder. And this requires the data of the image to be passed in $_FILES.
However, I don't know how the data is given by the calculator to HikaShop. It is done with a redirect to the add to cart URL of the product ? In that case, that won't be technically possible. Or is the add to cart done in PHP and then the calculator redirect to the checkout ? In that case, the calculator could store the image data in the correct folder and store the image path in the table like it does with other custom fields and it would work.
I'm afraid you'll have to check with them again with the additional information I gave above :/"

Can you give a reaction to the answer of Hikashop, or would you like to participate in the discussion at the forum of Hikashop in the above mentioned thread.

Best regards,

Thanks for the effort. I will make a ticket because I think I need some help with the coding.

In case it may help others:

once you have your fields (type image or ajax image) at the product table, you only need to follow the instructions here:

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

filling the

variable, of course using your field names instead of product_width or product_height at the example. According to hikashop support, if you have any image already uploaded to the upload safe folder of hikashop, you only need to add your image name.
