I'm using the Drupal Commerce module, and there is no "Latest products" block.
I am trying to make a "Latest Products" view, but the images of the products are not visible in the view; however, the titles are OK.


Here is the field that I choose for the product.


What am I missing? I suspect of the permissions but I could not find any Permission except these two.


This is the exported code of the view I am using.

$view = new view;
$view->name = 'latest_products';
$view->description = '';
$view->tag = 'default';
$view->base_table = 'node';
$view->human_name = 'Latest products';
$view->core = 7;
$view->api_version = '3.0';
$view->disabled = FALSE; /* Edit this to true to make a default view disabled initially */

/* Display: Master */
$handler = $view->new_display('default', 'Master', 'default');
$handler->display->display_options['title'] = 'Latest products';
$handler->display->display_options['access']['type'] = 'none';
$handler->display->display_options['cache']['type'] = 'none';

$handler->display->display_options['pager']['options']['items_per_page'] = '2';
$handler->display->display_options['pager']['options']['offset'] = '0';
$handler->display->display_options['style_plugin'] = 'default';
$handler->display->display_options['row_plugin'] = 'fields';
/* Field: Content: Title */
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['title']['id'] = 'title';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['title']['table'] = 'node';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['title']['field'] = 'title';

$handler->display->display_options['fields']['title']['alter']['html'] = 0;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['title']['hide_empty'] = 0;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['title']['empty_zero'] = 0;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['title']['link_to_node'] = 1;
/* Field: Field: Image */
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['field_image']['id'] = 'field_image';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['field_image']['table'] = 'field_data_field_image';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['field_image']['field'] = 'field_image';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['field_image']['alter']['alter_text'] = 0;

$handler->display->display_options['fields']['field_image']['click_sort_column'] = 'fid';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['field_image']['settings'] = array(
  'image_style' => 'thumbnail',
  'image_link' => '',
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['field_image']['field_api_classes'] = 0;
/* Sort criterion: Content: Post date */
$handler->display->display_options['sorts']['created']['id'] = 'created';
$handler->display->display_options['sorts']['created']['table'] = 'node';
$handler->display->display_options['sorts']['created']['field'] = 'created';
$handler->display->display_options['sorts']['created']['order'] = 'DESC';
/* Filter criterion: Content: Published */
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['id'] = 'status';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['table'] = 'node';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['field'] = 'status';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['value'] = 1;
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['group'] = 1;
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['expose']['operator'] = FALSE;

/* Display: Latest Products Block */
$handler = $view->new_display('block', 'Latest Products Block', 'block');
$handler->display->display_options['block_description'] = 'Latest products Block'; 

I looked at the source of the page but the image is not rendered.


My problem is with the content type. There are 2 types: Product display, and Product.

When I look at the content types, the actual "Product" is not there.


The actual images are stored in the Entity "Product" which is referenced here as "Product Reference" thats why I cant see the images in my view.


I tried with a dummy content type(including images) without problems I see the images in my view.

Now my question is; How can I choose the images from the Entity Product while listing the "Product Display" type in my view?

These are the screenshots while creating the view.



When I add the fields, the image seems empty.




  • You can post images using the post editor. Avoid adding links to external images.

I found the answer, it was the relationships
I needed to use Relationship in order to select images of Product(not of Product Display)

set relationStep1

set relationStep2

Then select the relation while choosing the image field
choose Relation

  • I gave no access permission to the View but the View is only Visible to Administrators, another problem, I cant find make the View visible to anonymous and authenticated users :( link access

  • They've made Commerce impossible to use unless you use Commerce Kickstart. It's sad because it's such an exciting idea, but the usability is low and don't expect anything to be intuitive at all. I guess the idea was to provide an eCommerce solution that promotes paid services instead of open source.

Make sure the public directory for image uploading is writable, dblog will tell you if there is a problem with that.


Try going through the HTML to see whether a path to the image is printed out.

You can copy-paste the HTML in a text file and attach it here for us to see. Also, export your view and attach that also to your post.
