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.

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.

What is the purpose of adding attributes to an attribute group, when you have to add them individually to the product as well?
I would expect to add an attribute group (containing the right attributes) to the product instead....

Hello Michaelsen,

Thanks for the question! Its main purpose is to provide a search group. So, if you later want to compare things that apply to a group of attributes, you would be able to include that particular attribute in your comparison search. The product attribute allows you to include it into that attribute group.

For more information on product comparison see OpenCart's documentation: Product Comparison.

I hope that helps to clarify the issue for you! Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Arnel C.
