Images for products

    Why can't we add images to a product when creating order forms?!! Seems so silly.

    Also, it would be good to get a GRID happening, so you can organise your form.

    What I've done before is to create a HTML block, and put the HTML image code in there, and then add a product. Then to relate them, I use gf_inline to put them next to each other, or use other CSS and whatnot to wrap the two things together. It is a bit of a pain, but not all products require images, and no matter how we implemented the feature, it would only help certain people, and others would want it to work differently.

    Just a quick "imagine if" session to help you understand the complexities regarding adding such a feature:
    If we added the ability to upload images to be used a product images, would you expect to be able to resize those images from within the form administration? How would you control their location compared to the product description and price? How many images per product could you have and if it is more than one, how would that work? Would you be able to click on the image to show a lightbox image that was larger? Would those product images also show up in WordPress' media manager?

    Those are just some quick concerns off the top of my head. Our current system of having you manage it through HTML blocks gives you complete control to do whatever you want. I am not trying to say your idea doesn't have merit, but only that it would have to be implemented carefully to help the maximum number of people without adding extra confusion and frustration.

    I'll make sure our development team sees this though, and that it is discussed further.
