Images for your xTupleCommerce site are not stored in the xTuple ERP database. Instead, they need to be stored on a separate web server, with a unique URL for each image. However, the ERP should contain cross references to these images, via their URL.
To enter image URLs in the ERP, go to the item master for the item in question and follow these steps:
- Select the documents tab
- Choose the ATTACH button
- Next to the "related to" option, choose the "website" option from the list
- Enter the URL for the item image
- Specify a name to identify it
If you are testing and training from your xTupleCommerce site, you can use an image service, such as Cloudinary, to temporarily store your initial test images and create URLs. However, once your website is live, you can use the xTupleCommerce website to host your images. More information about this process can be found here.
