Product images
« on: February 10, 2012, 09:18:04 am »
I am struggling. VirtueMart installed - no problem. Using the default sample products to experiment.

I am unable to upload new images - I have the following error message

The server does NOT support mime type recognition, using table
Supported filetypes for thumbnail creation GIF, JPG, PNG, WBMP

Searching for a solution I found that this seems to be to do with the DG library. I have checked and my server reports that GD is installed. Any help will be more than welcome - unless I can upload images I am stuffed.

See screenshot attached.

never fear, this is a joomla global configuration issue.  go to global configuration, system and find the media config, you will see a list of allowed file types.  simply add the missing file types to the allowed list - most joomla installtions have jpg but not jpeg - that gets a lot of people.
