Imaging settings

To setup widths and heights of images and thumbnails on your cafe or restaurant site you'll need to change config.php. There are 12 parameters described there:
  • $options['img_menu_width'] - width of menu image
  • $options['img_menu_height'] - height of menu image
  • $options['thumb_menu_width'] - width of menu thumbnail
  • $options['thumb_menu_height'] - height of menu thumbnail
  • $options['img_cat_width'] - width of category image
  • $options['img_cat_height'] - height of category image

  • $options['img_item_height'] - height of item image
  • $options['thumb_item_width'] - width of item thumbnail
  • $options['thumb_item_height'] - height of item thumbnail
To disable any imaging you would replace 3rd line of config.php (starts with return) to
return false;
