Changes in image.ini have no effects

Wednesday 17 October 2012 10:58:22 am - 3 replies


I have a problem with image types or aliases and filters. I tried to add a new image alias or changing the filter of an exiting alias to make it larger (reference value has been empty). I emptied the cache, uploaded the image again but nether there is an attribute for the new image alias in the image object nor is the image resized to the larger size. Is seams that changing anything in the settings doesn't have any effect. The image that I upload is very large, I also tried to add the changes to /settings/image.ini and I can see the new settings in the ini-editor in the backend. But in the templates nothing changes. Could you please help me to solve that. I am using version 4.0 (yes I should upgrade that but there is only a little bugdet for a little change so I won't).

First check if you have put an image.ini.append.php in a global settings. Image aliases will be visible to all siteaccesses in that case. Here is an example of how it should look like in the image.ini.append.php:




Output image using code:

 {attribute_view_gui attribute=$node.data_map.image image_class=promo}

You can use an other filters as well, check it in the documentation.
