I imported a lot of pictures via datagrab to a file field.
this all worked as expected. the thumbs of the file is displayed etc.

then I changed the file field to an asset field. with the same upload directories. now the thumbs are not showing!

If I upload another image, then suddently both thumbnails are displayed...

how could I display the thumbs directely?

could I downgrade to assets 1 somehow?

cheers stefan

Can you go to Modules > Assets and in the upper right click "Update Indexes" - then check all of those boxes and update those?

That should fix this up, if I am understanding correctly. You can then go visit and make sure the thumbnails show up appropriately.

There is no downgrade to Assets 1 unless you have a backup of files and database and roll those back.

  • I did this, but the thumbs didn't show up!

  • Try updating to Assets 2.0.3 (just released). It fixes several bugs, one of which may have been responsible for this. Jan 22, 2013 at 20:07
  • I'll do this tomorrow and will let you know! thanks

  • Hi brandon! the assets 2.0.3. update corrected this issue. I did run module update first, then I updated indexes and then I've changed the field type from "file" to "assets". Worked like a charm!
