add to bag flickr issues


I've followed the instructions for changing my add to bag button, uploaded it to flickr, inserted the url in the code and copied it to my css theme but it only removes the button - my new one doesn't show up. All my other changes appear fine, I think its the url that is the issue as it doesn't show file type. Has anyone else had this issue - is it just flickr or am I being an idiot?

Can we see the link to your store and also the code you use?

Hello Eugene,

This is the code I was following from your knowledge base.

HTML Code:
/* The "Add to bag" button in up state */
div.ecwid-AddToBagButton-up, div.ecwid-AddToBagButton-up-hovering {
    background: transparent url(icons/add_to_bag.png) no-repeat top center !important;
}
/* The "Add to bag" button in down state */
div.ecwid-AddToBagButton-down, div.ecwid-AddToBagButton-down-hovering {
    background: transparent url(icons/add_to_bag.png) no-repeat bottom center !important;
}
Using the instruction

Replace the "icons/add_to_bag.png" with the real absolute path to the modified image. For example:

url(http://www.example.com/images/my_custom_add_to_bag.png)

which for flickr comes up as http://www.flickr.com/photos/gringri...ak/5468836950/


I've tried it in greyscale and now purple, but it just vanishes on our shop page

http://www.gringrimaceandsqueak.co.uk/buy-online.php

Otherwise, I have to say ecwid has been an absolute blessing, I now have a client using it too

Hmm, it looks like you're using an incorrect link to your image uploaded on Flickr. For example if we open this image:
Code:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/gringrimaceandsqueak/5450149689/
, the correct direct link to the image will be
Code:
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5217/5450149689_090cbd538c_b.jpg
What exact CSS code did you try to apply?

Aha, I was being an idiot, thankyou Flickr no longer displays the direct link to prevent people posting things without linking back to flickr, just got to find out how to get round that now. Thankyou so much for your help !

Just to confirm and help anyone else who had the same problem, I now use ImageShack for these buttons so I can get the right link and it works perfectly.

Thanks again, guys

ImageShack is nice, but it can block an image if it is loaded extensively.

I think the best way is to host the images on your own site.
As I know Yola allows to do this. Upload the necessary files on the "Site -> File manager" page in your Yola site builder, insert them then anywhere on your page to view public links to them. Then use these links in your CSS.
