Put multiple images for a product in Odoo 8 ecommerce web page

I really like the idea that Odoo provide both a powerfull ERP solution as well as a quite functional ecommerce solution. However compare to other ecommerce solution Odoo is missing some functions, One concern is on Ebay, Amazon as well as many e-commerce websites, they use slides to show multiple pictures at the left-top section. But Odoo only allow one pictures. So I raised a question here: 
"Can an e-commerce pages show multiple pictures at the left top part of the page in V8?"

Luke Branch now provides a addon. (check It works great and I want to share how I install this addon with you. 

Here is how I install the addon, please be aware you configuration/odoo folders may be different, if you follow my post to install Odoo you should be able to follow this instruction without issue.  

First stop odoo server and run the following to get the custom module. 

sudo su - odoo -s /bin/bash
mkdir custom_modules
cd /opt/odoo/custom_modules/
git clone -b 8.0 
Now you have the file you need to Scaffolding this module. Still run as odoo user:
cd ..
./ scaffold website_multi_image addons
cp -R custom_modules/website_multi_image addons/.
At this point you need to start odoo server. Log into Odoo as admin, make sure "Technical Features" is turned on for admin, if not, go to Settings->Users, edit admin user by check "Technical Features" checkbox. 

No go to Settings->Modules->Update Modules List and click Update button. When finished, install "Product Multi-Image". 

Then you can go to Product configuration page -> product images and add more images for the product. 

Well here is how it looks like on website: 

And here is how it looks in product maintain page: 


  1. I will test how to import pictures later and update.
