I am using ecommerce 0.81 and I would like to use thumbnails of the products to be purchased in the shopping cart. I have tried many ideas but can't seem to be able to reference the product thumbnail in For example:

<% if Image.ContentImage %>
<img class="productImage" src="$Image.ContentImage.URL" alt="<% sprintf(_t("IMAGE","%s image"),$Title) %>" />
<% else %>
<div class="noimage">$CartID.$Image.Thumbnail </div>
<% end_if %>

is false and gives me "Cart_ProductVariation_OrderItem_DB_69"

Also, is it possible to have an unordered list for Variations of a Product. In the CMS if I enter three Variations, "Small" "Medium" and "Large", it gets sorted in the CMS in alphabetical order (Large --> Small) whereas I would like it to remain in the order I entered (Small --> Large). I know I can put numbers before the text as a kludge but is there a variable setting I can use to make it more elegant?

Not sure about your variations question, this is how I got thumbnails to work in 0.6.1

I added the following function to the Product_OrderItem class in Products.php

class Product_OrderItem extends OrderItem {
	function Image() {
		return $this->Product()->Image();

Its highly likely not the correct implementation of the code as it wont stand up to having the ecommerce files updated by future releases.
