Default What to do when product images cannot be saved locally or their URL masked

Sometimes merchants impose access controls on their images so that we cannot download them and store them locally nor can we rewrite the image URL. The only way to get the image to display on your website is by requesting the image directly from the merchant's server.

Here's how to change your site so that you are pulling images directly from the merchants' servers:

1. Go here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > STORE FRONT PAGE > Default

2. Click the theme icon ( ) for the Product list module.

3. Change [product.thumbnail tag='1'] to [product.thumbnail tag='1' direct='1']

4. Click the [Save changes] button.

5. Repeat steps 2~4 for the following views:
  • The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > CATEGORY PAGE > Default
  • The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > SEARCH PAGE > Default
  • The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > PRODUCTS BY TAG > Default
  • The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > WIDGETS > Products > Default
  • The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > CUSTOM VIEWS > Related Products > Default
  • The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > CUSTOM VIEWS > Sale Items > Default

6. Go here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > PRODUCT DETAIL > Default

7. Click the theme icon ( ) for the Product detail module.

8. Change [product.image tag='1'] to [product.image tag='1' direct='1']

9. Click the [Save changes] button.

10. Go here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > DRIP TEMPLATE > Default

11. Click the theme icon ( ) for the Product detail module.

12. Change [product.image] to [product.image direct='1']

13. Click the [Save changes] button.

14. Go here: WordPress Admin Area > Tools > Datafeedr

15. Click the [Update Settings Only] button.

That should do it.

Eric
