[EP-tech] Re: File icons in 3.3?

   I don't think that parameter ($c->{plugins}->{"Convert::ImageMagick::ThumbnailDocuments"}->{params}->{disable} = 1;) exists in 3.3? Did a quick grep and couldn't locate an instance in which it was referenced. Locally we've also tried setting parameters exposed in Convert::Thumbnails (via plugins.pl):

$c->{plugins}->{'Convert::Thumbnails'}->{params}->{audio} = 0;
$c->{plugins}->{'Convert::Thumbnails'}->{params}->{video} = 0;
$c->{plugins}->{'Convert::Thumbnails'}->{params}->{image} = 0;

to no avail - thumbnails were still being regenerated after an epadmin redo_thumbnails call. As a stopgap, we've shortcircuited the reference to the document thumbnails in Document.pm (sub icon_url), though this approach is not likely by-the-book:

<snip, Document.pm:~1566>
# size => "small","medium","preview" (small is default)
# public => 0 : show thumbnail only on public docs
# public => 1 : show thumbnail on all docs if poss.
sub icon_url
{
        my( $self, %opts ) = @_;

        $opts{public} = 1 unless defined $opts{public};
        $opts{size} = "small" unless defined $opts{size};

# Disabling thumbnails, should fallthrough to icons, defaults to unknown.png
#       if( !$opts{public} || $self->is_public )
#       {
#               my $thumbnail_url = $self->thumbnail_url( $opts{size} );
#
#               return $thumbnail_url if defined $thumbnail_url;
#       }
<end snip>

After the change, plus a reload of the repository config and regeneration of abstracts, the thumbnail icons were no longer referenced (though they're still around).

Cheers,
Casey

Hi,

I disabled the ImageMagick plug-in and ran "epadmin redo_thumbnails
archiveid" but I follow watching "cover page icons" instead of "files
icons".

Is there another trick? or Can I use the old (3.2.X) document namedsets file?

Regards,

Cristian
