After a recent VM version update, all thumbnail paths have (Default URL) inserted into the path at the start, breaking all thumbnail links. See the attached screen shot. As a result, the thumbnail image links are all broken on the frontend.
Yeh, the attached screenshot shows a thumbnail on the right which works. So the attached screenshot shows anything correct. Your thumbs do not work in the FE, because your layout overrides are much tooo old and shitty written. Please read here http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=132128.msg456671#msg456671
I am quite sure, the reason is that your layout use something like $product->images->file_url_thumb instead of $product->images->FileUrlThumb();
I searched under SITE_ROOT/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_virtuemart_media.ini and its the first entry of the file
COM_VIRTUEMART_DEFAULT_URL="(Default URL) %1$s"
Please change to
COM_VIRTUEMART_DEFAULT_URL="%1$s" and save the file
What should that bring? It just shows not anylonger the information, that you use a default and that you have not override it and therefore anything works automatic. Your solution is absolutly horrible and actually breaking the GUI in some sense.
Unfotunatelly you need to edit all products and save them again.
Ah super and set anywhere an overrides, make it most complex as possible.
Completly nonsense its4gr. Really. COM_VIRTUEMART_DEFAULT_URL="(Default URL) %1$s" Shows that your db has NO ENTRY for the THUMB PATH, which IS THE CORRECT WAY !
Only when you want to override the default thump path, then you write something in here, but I strongly recommend to stay aways from this. This options is more for Pros, who really understand what they do and why our system is the way it is.
