Hi everyone,
I installed Virtuemart 2.0.2 on Joomla 2.5 and it works perfectly for the moment.
Just a detail.
How can i hide the image's file name on the product detail's front page
Thanks for your help


Hi Philippe,

In products>>product images>> Image alt-text >> this should be blank?

If it is picking up from the wrong field then change some to see if it changes the name.

...ERROR...Media Files have to a Title !!
I can not leave it blank and save the product without Title !!

Joomla 3.x | VirtueMart 4.0.12 107771 | HORME3 PRO 1.9.6 / 2.0
VirtueMart 4.2.4 | Joomla 4.4.1 | PHP 8.1 | Vp_neoteric 1.3


Changed "File Description" of a product =>
I found, that it is the file_description text which is visible in product details  - not the file_title !!

But where does it come from ??

I can not find any part of the code "file_description" in /components/virtuemart directory !!??

Description is the subtitle and is displayed under the image of product detail page. The Alt text is displayed under the image on lightbox. Delete it in your image configuration or use css to hide it.

mfarooqi way is..
in the following page...


change the following line of code
   echo $image->displayMediaFull('class="product-image" style="cursor: pointer"',false,"");
   echo $image->displayMediaThumb('class="product-image-small"', true, 'class="modal"', true, false);


I am using VM 2.6.4, I also hate to see image filename beneath the product image.

However, I opened the file /components/com_virtuemart/views/productdetails/tmpl/default_images.php, but did not find that code. The only code containing the "MedaiFull" strings is in line 69:

echo $image->displayMediaFull("",true,"rel='vm-additional-images'");

How can I modify this to hide the filename?
