  1. dear sir,

    i want to add one image in my all product page below the categories sidepar. if it possible in opencart default theme.. kindly explain


    1. This is not possible within the default theme without greatly modifying the code within it. There may, however, be other themes out there that satisfy your requirements.

  2. after adding my product additional image it aligned vertically. i want them to align horizontal. i used default opencart theme..

    my style sheet is like below:

    .product-info .image-additional {

    width: 160px;

    margin-left: -10px;

    clear: both;

    overflow: hidden;




    1. Hello nesan,

      If you want your product’s additional images to align horizontally, you are going to need to increase the width: 160px to a wider size so that the images have room to fit in that <div>.

      In my OpenCart site I’ve found that width: 350px is wide enough to squeeze in 4 thumbnail images side by side. However this does throw off the product info such as price further to the right. Which you would then need to adjust this setting to fix that:

      .product-info > .left {
      float: left;
      margin-right: -75px;

      Please let us know if you had any further questions.

      – Jacob
