i'm uploading new products to the store to find if the layout is fine for me or if it needs some changes.
The moment i upload product pictures i find that they are shown as they are. No thumbnail resize at all.

Probably i'm too much addicted to typo3 image autoresizing or probably i didn't make the right setting.
The question is:
How do i set the product pictures to show as thumbnails and letting them to be shown larger on click?

Well, after a deep troubleshooting i found that the mogrify command in class.mslib_befe.php wasn't correct for GraphicsMagick on my Ubuntu server, so i had to change each line where it was from
exec($GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['GFX']["im_path"].'mogrify -quality 90 -strip -resize "'.$maxwidth.'x'.$maxheight.'>" "'.$target .'"');

exec($GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['GFX']["im_path"].'mogrify -quality 90 -resize '.$maxwidth.'x'.$maxheight.' +profile "*" "'.$target .'"');

because the -strip option doesn't work and has to be substitute with +profile to strip the extif tags.
Once i corrected all the lines where mogrify was everything went back to work.

Btw, this is however a problem because, as far as multishop doesn't use the typo3 caching system, you have to upload again each image product every time you modify sizes in settings.
Of course, when you have tons of products, it will be terrifying!!!

ImageMagick issue
The strip parameter is only working on IM6 and not on IM5. We have changed the code to make it compatible for both versions.

Application caching.
I have two tips for you.

TIP 1:

Go to SYSTEM / SETTINGS and enable Cache front-end.
This will enable application caching.

TYPO3 Multishop uses it's own caching meganism (outside TYPO3), so it won't poison the TYPO3 database cache table.
The cache files are saved on the file system inside the following folder:


If you truely want maximum speed and you have plenty of free RAM you could add a fstab entry and mount a tmpfs file system to this path.


mount -t tmpfs -o size=500m tmpfs /var/www/vhosts/typo3multishop.com/httpdocs/uploads/tx_multishop/tmp/cache

That way the cache files are saved into memory instead of disk.

We also plan to add Memcache support later on.

TIP 2:
Go to SYSTEM / SETTINGS and enable Flat Database.
This will save your products to an additional flat table (tx_multishop_products_flat) and your whole shop will use that table instead. That way Multishop doesn't need to join individual tables any more and will boost your database performance cause it needs to do less agressive queries.

This module is required when you host high-traffic web shops and/or having very large catalogs. Our current stress tests shops are running 1.6 million products without a problem and just on a single server.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
