    It is like it is defaulting to 90px no matter what you set it as... even if you set it as 50 x 50 on https://ww8.aitsafe.com/ddn/messages.pht - it still displays as 90px width. Please advise... I'd like to customize the size of the thumb's that are displayed in the shopping cart. They display fine but we can't change the size of them as it is saying. We are using v2 of the system - which we prefer to still do. I think it is a small bug in the system for v2.

    Anyone experiencing the same issue when you try to load thumbs into the shopping cart view? The custom size of thumbs does not seem to be working on the page listed (https://ww8.aitsafe.com/ddn/messages.pht)

    I also found when attempting to use Version 2 that only 90 x 90 thumbs were generated as against several smaller sizes in Version 1.

    Needless to say i reverted back to V1.

    I'm experiencing same with v2. For example, a thumb image sized at 54 x 80 was showing at 90 x 133, which of made them very low resolution. Leaving the size blank, still resulted in the same 90 x 133.

    Ideally, I would like to be able to constrain one of the proportions (or both), so that whatever size thumbnail image I have, it will fit the maximum dimensions set in Mal's.

    Meanwhile, I've bumped up the size of my thumbnails generated on my server to 90px wide and they look good.

    Ask Mal to introduce the same options as used on the V1, the more that ask, the more chance we have of it being implemented, the 90 x 90 thumbs make the viewed shopping cart look far too long in depth.

    The Version 2 cart can be customised extensively (including the size of thumbnails). Mal has enabled this by including the facility to upload your own stylesheet. See Cart Setup / Customise / Upload a style sheet.

    Start by viewing the HTML source of your cart page and identify the id and/or class of the elements you want to customise. Go to the cart's main stylesheet (linked in Cart Setup as above) and find the relevant declarations. Create a .css file and copy these declarations. Modify them to your own specifications, upload as above and test.

    You will need a good working knowledge of HTML and CSS

    With thanks to Geoff and his .css coding I was able to implement in my V2 version both a replacement for the 'Remove' button with a round 'X' and by adjusting his coding for the re-sizing of the 'Thumbs' images which I have set at 75x75.
