HTML size limit code is removing my buy button!

I KNOW I'm doing this in a round-about way, but my web designer hasn't been available as of late, and I'm trying to find a way to get around her to make FotoMoto work for my website, so bear with me here:

I can't currently get the galleries to work through Wordpress, so I figured, hey! I'll use HTML code for my hosted images in my photobucket to use for my FotoMoto store! This seems to work just fine with photobucket images, and the "buy" button shows up right below the hosted images, like it's supposed to.

But seeing how I have hi-rez images uploaded to my photobucket for the purpose of good printing, I can't very well just plop down the HTML for a giant image that takes up the entire space on the page I've set aside for my store, so I wanted to put some size limitation code in them to keep them at a manageable size.
(example - width="200" height="150" after the hosted URL)

BUT, once I add that code to the image HTML, the "buy" button below the image DISAPPEARS! Why is that? Is there any way to bypass this?

    Hi Abbie,

    Thanks for the well-laid out description of what you're trying to do...

    So first of all, I'd be happy to help you get things working on WordPress - just let me know if that's your preference. You can email us and say attn Derek in the body of your message and I'll get it.

    Next, I'm guessing you won't want to provide a direct link to your high-rez images, 'cause they'd be out in the open and people could make their own prints. Plus inserting high-rez in to your page will slow down the page load time drastically.

    So, what I'd suggest (whether you use WordPress or not) is to put your high-rez files in a protected directory somewhere and use our Auto Pickup system to grab the files when needed to place an order.

    If you need a hand setting things up, just send us an email as above and we'll be happy to help you get things set up on your site.

    I hope that helps and kind regards,

      Oh, and by the way, to answer your question, the reason the Buy Buttons don't appear on the smaller image is because your "Minimum Width or Height for Images" setting is at the default of 200, so any image with a width or height smaller than that will be ignored. You can change the value to something less than 150 (or the smallest dimension of your smallest thumbnail) and the Buy Buttons will show.

      Still, that's probably not what you want to do, so let me know how we can help you best.

      Kind regards,
