I’ve successfully set up a template product and have approx 500 products dynamically displaying correctly including price variations. However, I want to use the Add to Cart template but when I do the pid of the image shows up
[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v106/desk2web/screencapture1.png] shows what I mean
When I use the Buy Now template the pid doesnt show up

Hi, what shortcode are you using for the Add to Cart template?
Please see the Important Notes and F.A.Q section of the documentation page. It explains everything you need to do to configure Add to Cart buttons for a NextGen gallery.

Thanks for your reply. I followed the instructions given on those pages.
Using the code [nggallery id=3 template=wp-eStore-auto-addtocart] on [http://www.pixeldevelopment.co.uk/clivewasson/tip-oneil-event/] looks even worse.
What I’ve done is create all of the galleries I needed prior to installing eStore and the nextgen addon.
I then created a template product and in nextgen estore addon settings I mapped the template to the previously created galleries. I had not put any shortcode into the pages I had created but when I opened the pages the add to cart button and options I’d created showed up, all be it with the additional pid field.
So what I’m saying is …. why doesnt it work! If I use the Buy Now template it works fine but this isn’t suitable for our needs as we hope visitors will buy more than one particular photograph.June 15, 2013 at 11:55 pm #56178wpCommerceModerator
Hi, you also need to copy the
gallery-wp-eStore-auto-addtocart.phptemplate file to the
viewdirectory of NextGen Gallery plugin for the Add to Cart button to work. Have you done that step as well?June 16, 2013 at 1:28 am #56179
Hi, I would like to take a look at your setup. I have sent you an email to get access to your site.June 16, 2013 at 2:02 pm #56180
Hi Admin, thanks, I suspect the email will have gone to Clive who’s account this technically is, I’m Allan and I am his developer and I don’t have access to the email account you’ve contacted – could I ask you to email me direct allan at pixel house design dot com and I’ll gladly give you whatever access you need.
Very many thanks, this is the last step in our development of Clive’s site so I’m keen to get it finalised as soon as possible.June 17, 2013 at 1:15 am #56181
Okay done.June 17, 2013 at 5:47 pm #56182
Thanks, I’ve filled in the support form and submitted.June 18, 2013 at 1:17 am #56183
This theme was conflicting with a CSS code of the nextgen gallery integration. We were able to tweak our CSS code a little to get around it.June 20, 2013 at 10:20 am #56184
Thank you for your assistance in this, I do however see that on [http://www.pixeldevelopment.co.uk/clivewasson/miscellaneous-gallery/?album=8&gallery=13]
the gallery isn’t laid out well when the add to cart template is used.
Grateful for any assistance anyone can offerJune 20, 2013 at 11:41 pm #56185
The different thumbnail image sizes in that gallery seems to be making it hard to display in a grid. If you place that same gallery on a page without using eStore, how does it look?
