Displaying the Images

Now we need to tell the site how to display the files using our ImageCache presets. To do this click the 'Display fields' tab at the top. Now use the pull-downs to get the setting below

Images

  • Label = <Hidden>
  • Teaser = no styling
  • Full node = no styling

Main Image

CCK for images

Now we have the modules all installed and setup we'll go and make it so the user can upload an image on the page. You will have to do tis for each content type, but we will only do page and story for now

  1. Go to admin
  2. On the left click Content Types
  3. Click 'Manage Fields' to the right of 'Page'

Group

We'll add a group for our images so under New Group type Images in the box for Label and 'images' for the box for Group name now hit the Save button. Now to configure the group
