How can I get product thumbnails to display on the Exchange product category pages?  What about the Store page?  Thanks for your help -

Hi Bob,

I'm not sure exactly what your question is.  Are you wanting to have all the images display on your category and store page, not just the featured image?  

If you can give me more details on what exactly you're wanting, we'll help you out.  Can you also please (always :)) provide us with a url so we can take a look?

Thanks,

Elise

Thanks for your reply.

I'll try to clarify - I am wanting the Featured Image to display for each product when displaying a Product Category.  (archive.php)

When it displays as image, it is not the image that I expect.  I would expect it to use the product image as the post_thumbnail by default but it is displaying the first inserted image in the Extended Description instead.

Is there a way to define the Featured Image on a product to control what is displayed in the Shop?  Why doesn't it use the product image by default?

Hi Bob,

When you add images to your product, the large image at the top is the featured image that will show on your store (or shop) page.

Screen Shot 2013-07-16 at 4.37.33 PM.png

To change which one is the featured image, you'd drag the one you want to be featured on the store page up to that top space.  That is how you control which image shows in the shop and that is the image it uses by default.

You reference both the shop page and a category page.  Is it showing correctly on your shop page, but not on the category page?  Or is it not showing properly on either page?  Did you add images in the product through the image options to the left when creating/editing a product?  You mentioned images in the Extended Description, so I just want to make sure I understand how images are being added.  Do you have a link to a page where I can see what's happening?  Or a screenshot I can take a look at?  A link would be better, but I understand if you're working in a local environment.  

Thanks,

Elise

Bob mentioned getting product images to show up on Exchange Product Category pages. I have the same question. if you go to reddoorolympia.com/product-category/general none of the product images appear. How can I get them to show up?

I'm attempting to display products by Category.  When I create a menu item for that a particular product category, and then view the resulting product category archive page, it lists the products (great!) but none of the products have a thumbnail image.  I'm using (Builder-Reddinger) and the page displays a "Edit Post - (tip: Set a Featured Image)" as a place holder for each product in the category.  

Is there a way to set the featured image for a product in Exchange?

I'm experiencing something similar with a different setup.  It looks like, what Exchange calls the "featured image" on a product page is NOT the same as the typical WordPress Featured Image.
