I'm just trying out the imager plugin. It looks promising! I've set up the first usage example but I don't see any image on my site in the browser. The image is uploaded properly to the asset source but it seems that Imager is placing its transforms in a subfolder (in this case: '7' -> http://craft-imager.dev/imager/images/7/nature-13_d4e4e04a52bfbdbeab5ba4d2cf1d1390.jpg)

The subfolder '7' doesn't exists on my machine..

I did some digging around, but I can't figure out what's wrong. The directory 'imager/images' exists and is writable by PHP.

Any idea? Thanks in advance!

    So, Imager outputs the url above in the template, but the file doesn't exist on the server? Have you customized your imagerSystemPath config setting? What platform are you on? Commented Mar 20, 2017 at 13:51
  • Hi André, Yes, that's what Imager outputs. The file doesn't exists on the server. I didn't customize the imagerSystemPath. It's set to: $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/imager/'. I created the imager directory, but that didn't help. I also created the images directory inside the imager directory, but that didn't help either. Any idea? The following code (good old Craft code) shows the image ok by the way; {% set image = craft.assets().limit(1).first() %} <img src="{{ image.getUrl({ width: 1000 }) }}"> Thanks for your help!

  • I took another look at the imagerSystemPath ;) Thanks! That worked! Commented Mar 20, 2017 at 16:07

    Would you mind adding what worked for you as an official answer @WiegerJelsma in case someone else runs into this?

I have this line inside my config. define('BASEPATH', realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../') . '/');

And inside the imager config file imager.php I have: '.dev' => array('imagerSystemPath' => str_replace('craft/','images/', BASEPATH),

So, make sure the paths are all set according to your environment / directory structure.
