Unable to modify thumbnail Used URL
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:36:40 am »
I just donwloaded the virtuemart 2 on my joomla 1.7.3 and trying to create a category.
However when I try to put the link to my image on "thumnail used URL" and Save, it comes back to
images/stories/virtuemart/category/
No matter what I write in the image information, I get this link back?
Any help?
Thanks?

you cannot use external images at this time

you can change your images folder in vmart administrator

Are you saying that I have to upload them one by one? I have about 3000 items.
What about using CSVI? I was planning to use that to upload all my items. Does this mean that I will have to upload them all and then manually add images one by one?
Just to confirm.

CSVI  is not completed for 2.0

but yes, if the images are local, you could use a csv import via phpmyadmin, i think

I am actually not talking about an external image. All I want to is to upload all my pictures into my FTP and basically point my images to there! (which I did for VM 1.1.9)
For some reason, even when I use CSVI to upload, the url image and the url image thumbnail are simply ignored!
Can you tell me what is a phpmyadmin?
