I have a problem with the Virtuemart Color Swatch plugin for Joomla 3. When I add thumbnails to the product, in the admin panel, I get this error:

Warning: mkdir(): No such file or directory in /var/www/sitefolder/public_html/domain.com/plugins/vmcustom/color_swatch/color_swatch.php on line 66

Here's the code from line 66:

$thumb_folder = $folder;
if (!is_dir(JPATH_SITE .'/'. $thumb_folder)) {
    mkdir(JPATH_SITE .'/'. $thumb_folder, 0777);

This custom field appears on the site, but without a photo (in the admin panel thumbnails are loaded).

I think this problem appears because the path to the thumbnails on line 66 is wrong. The path to thumbnails is:

/images/stories/virtuemart/color_swatch/images/[here are the generated folders]

Also, if I give attribute TRUE after 0777, the error disappear, but another error appears with "no rights" to directory.

  • Welcome to JSE, please take our tour. Please also consider renaming your account to something more "human" and telling us about your Joomla background by editing your profile. Sep 12, 2020 at 21:53
  • If it's a problem with a specific extension like this, it's usually better to raise the question on the support forum of the extension. I suggest you try that. Sep 13, 2020 at 21:43
