The links are identical, the path is correct, the image is there,but i have to refresh the page for the image to show, i am suspecting the "itok" parameter might be causing the problem,. It was working fine at the beginning, at some point during the development i started having the problem.

Any help with be appreciated.


  • I have the same issue,I need to refresh the image to upload.How did you fix that? – sokratis Mar 26 '14 at 20:32

Have you tried the Image Allow Insecure Derivatives module?

Provides a user interface to allow Drupal to bypass the token security check when generating image derivatives.


Drupal 7.20 comes with a security fix that changes all image derivative URLs generated by Drupal to append a token as a query string. ("Image derivatives" are copies of images which the Drupal Image module automatically creates based on configured image styles; for example, thumbnail, medium, large, etc.)

s an example, links that previously pointed to a URL like: /sites/default/files/styles/thumbnail/public/field/image/example.png

will now point to a URL like: /sites/default/files/styles/thumbnail/public/field/image/example.png?itok=zD_VaCaD

For more information on the security improvement, visit the release notes.

This is a fantastic security improvement, but in certain cases, has some ramifications. This module provides a configuration setting in order to toggle whether or not Drupal bypasses that token check.

  • I have the same issue,I use tokens in image paths and I need to refresh the image so as to appear.I tried the above module but no luck,the issue remains.Anymore suggestions?thanks – sokratis Mar 26 '14 at 20:39
