Offering page reprints via Fotomoto

Andrea 2 weeks ago in BLOX Total CMS updated by Christine Masters (Director of BLOX CMS) 2 weeks ago 1

Hello, 

We are moving from MyCapture to Fotomoto. 

In MyCapture, we had an album of page reprints (http://herald-dispatch.mycapture.com/mycapture/folder.asp?event=1877902&CategoryID=82823), and I am trying to figure out how to replicate that in Fotomoto. 

I'm interested in seeing what everyone else has come up with so far. Obviously, there's a photo gallery option. But I'm curious if anyone has figured out any other presentations. 

Thanks!
Andrea

Hi Andrea!

If you are asking specifically about page reprints, we are in discussions with Fotomoto about this now. We need to test this and make sure the image size is appropriate, and if so, it will be available within e-Edition, or by uploading front page images.

If you are asking about a "photo store" option in BLOX, this is something you can do just by creating a special URL and showcasing photos that can be sold.

Here is an example:

https://www.flex-showcase.bloxcms.com/photostore/?1234

That is done by creating several blocks showing images from the X section that have photo sales enabled.

I then used the "promo button" block to create a link to a search results page to see more of photos from that section. The ps=1 in the search query means to only show items with photo sales enabled.

You can also use other block layouts for this.
