VirtueMart Product Images Tab for Organizing Images in Subdirectories

VirtueMart Image Management

This is a hacked version of the VirtueMart 1.1.3 administrator/components/com_virtuemart/product.product_form.php file.

Instead of checking the writability of only shop_image/product/ and shop_image/product/resized/, the Product Images tab will now check all subdirectories.

It will also report the path to the product's thumbnail image, rather than just showing the image.

VirtueMart Hack to Make Modules Display Product Images Even if Organized in Subdirectories

VirtueMart Images in Subfolders

This is a hacked version of the VirtueMart 1.1.3 com_virtuemart/show_image_in_imgtag.php file, so that you can organize product images into subdirectories and still have the images appear in the standard modules.

(You'll also need to download our hacked ps_product.php file, so that the images appear in the store component and on the Product Images tab of the back-end. And you may optionally wish to download our hacked product.product_form.php file, which has enhancements for those managing images in subdirectories.)

For more info, see our article Organizing VirtueMart Product Images in Subdirectories.

Improved VirtueMart 1.1.3 support Image Subdirectories & no file erase on product deletion

VirtueMart for Massive Catalogs of Stock from many Manufacturers

This is a hacked version of the VirtueMart 1.1.3 /administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/ps_product.php file. This file addresses two VirtueMart bugs:

This file will prevent VirtueMart from deleting product images (and other files associated with prodiucts) when you delete the products.

And it will enable you to organize your product images into subdirectories based on manufacturer and/or category.

With this hack, VM will show such images in the front-end store and on the Product Images tab of the back-end.  (You need to download one more file to get the standard modules to also display the images.)

For more information, see our two separate articles on these topics:

Solution to Template File Permission Errors

Preventing Unwritable Config Files

There is a serious bug in Joomla 1.5 (all releases to date). When you use the back-end to change a template's parameters, Joomla changes the permission settings of the template's .ini file from 644 (correct) to 555 (wrong). It often screws up other file permissions as well.

This file replaces the standard Joomla 1.5.9 /administrator/components/com_template/controller.php file so as to fix this problem.

For more information see our article Solution to the Joomla 1.5 Template .ini File Permission Errors Bug.

For a fuller discussion of the Joomla bug that this fixes, see: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?p=1209369. That thread also shows what to hack, in case you want to apply the changes yourself.
