Please view

You will notice that there isn't any Picture showing in the catalog. However, if you click on any of these products, the image is showing properly. I want the Grid/Table of Catalog to show the pictures as well. Can't figure out how. Any idea?

Urgent response would be highly appreciated.

Ubercart relies on image cache for sizing images, when I have had this issue it meant I had not defined a image cache for the catalog images.

Can you please explain defining a image cache for the catalog images. What good is it to post a response and state a solution if you don't describe exactly what to do. Thanks!

I have the same problem, ubercart doesn't create himself the image cache settings for thumbs in grid display ?

how to know what name to use for creating an image cache setting for the display grid of ubercart ?

In case anyone else runs into this conversation trying to figure out why catalog images are not showing...

You need to go to "admin/build/imagecache" and add two new presets:

Of course, if imagecache is not installed you will need to install it.

In my situation, these presets were missing, and once I added them the catalog images became visible.

I was having the same problem and I checked all of my setting including imagecache, etc.

Then I right clicked on the red X where the picture was supposed to show up on screen and I noted that the path of the image was different than what it was supposed to be. The path in the picture properties showed "sites/default/files/imagecache/product_list/" So, I just added all of the images to that url and I could see the images.

hope this helped.

I was having the same issue and of all the suggestions, this idea finally gave me the break I was looking for. As far as I can tell, I correctly installed everything and the image would show on upload, but would not show anywhere else. It would show the no-pic box and alt text, but no image. I was able to right click, see the path, then upload my photos to the designated folder and NOW I can see my images.

Although this seems like an extra step and a little bit of an inconvenience, it does work.

The only problem I'm having now is that the photos are too big and aren't properly placed on the page now.

Do I have to resize them before I upload them or is there a way to get them resized and placed properly?

Also, is there a way to resolve this so that the files will upload to the correct folder without having to manually do it?

It seems that something isn't quite correct in the configuration or pathways or something and it would be nice to make it work automatically. Not sure where to go to fix that.

Thanks for posting this solution.

But unfortunately I am creating e-commerce web page and I don't want to manually add images to some folder every time I am updating products in catalogue.

Here other interesting things I have found.
In firefox path for a full size image is: /sites/default/files/ if I am logged in as a administrator.

But if I am not logged in it will be: /sites/default/files/imagecache/product_full/

Images seems to be uploaded to /sites/default/files/ but there is only full size images. thumbnails can be found from sites/default/files/imagefield_thumbs

This imagecache is giving me really bad headache right now....

I was fretting about this for a while myself...and it turns out the solution was that I simply forgot to enable a necessary module!

The reason the thumbnails and preview images weren't being generated for me is because they required the ImageAPI GD2 module (or the ImageAPI ImageMagick module depending on which image toolkit you want to use). You can't actually manipulate (resize) an image unless there's an image toolkit to do the resizing! Easy fix!

It's easy to miss enabling these modules because Ubercart makes no mention of requiring it in the Configuation page (where all the check marks are green). You have to go to your regular status page to figure out what's missing:

I hope that helps!

Ubercart shop products pictures disapeared after imagecache update


Any idea why Ubercart products pictures have disapeared after Image cache update ?

Thanks for your help.

Can you tell me how to change the size of the pictures of products shown in the Catalog ?

Just a note on this. For me the ImageAPI GD2 instead of the ImageAPI ImageMagick in the configuration/imageapi seems to work and create all the imagecache files normailly. ImageAPI ImageMagick although it works normally seems to have a problem working with Ubercart.

This is just an observation which may help someone out.

I had the same problem and searched all over the place without finding a solution. The permissions were set up correctly and I had all the modules. It turned out that (in my case) the solution (or at least what seems like it) was teasingly simple. Just follow the 2 steps below:

1.) Navigate to admin/build/imagecache.

2.) Click on all the preset names under the "Preset Name" column or on the "View" for each preset under the "Actions" column.

If you have the file browser ready and you are in the files/imagecache folder, you should be able to see the folders being created as you click on every one of those links. In my case, I think the problem was solved by clicking on the product and uc_thumbnail links, but it doesn't hurt to click on all the links.

In other words, it seems as though the directories are only created after these links have been clicked, and without the directories no thumbnails can be created.

If it was up to me, this would be filed as a bug in Ubercart, but it might as well be a design feature to avoid creating unnecessary folders.
