Joomla - Virtuemart - show recent products as images


I need to show the  recent product pictures insted of the recent product names on the product flypage.

I opened the flypage and changed

<?php echo $recent_products; ?>
<?php echo $recent_products[$product_thumb_image]; ?>

But it didn't work. What should I do? Thank you

echo ps_product::image_tag(basename($product_full_image), 'class="browseProductImage" 
border="0" title="'.$product_name.'" 
alt="'.$product_name .'"',1,'product',250,300 )

Open in new window

Using this code you can set the width and height of the thumbnail on the fly. and in your browseProductImage CSS class you can set it to be in a line.

or alternatively add table coding to your flypage to allow it to create <td> </td> for each image and set it in a single <tr></tr>

Meanwhile I changed in recent.tpl.php the folowing:

<?php echo ps_product::image_tag( urldecode($recent["product_thumb_image"])); ?></a>&nbsp;(<?php echo $VM_LANG->_('PHPSHOP_CATEGORY') ?>:&nbsp;

However I would like to change the pictures smaller (now the size has the same as set in VM) and to be next to each other and not under each other.
