Sometimes your products won't have images, and we're going to provide a fallback image if that is the case. So we're going to go ahead and create an entirely new product
00:09
out in the database quickly just to demonstrate this out. We don't really need to create variations for this. So I'm just going to write example product. And we'll do the same for the slug, example product.
00:21
And like I said, we won't give any variations here. So let's say example product description. And we'll just leave it like that. So if we head over to the browser
00:32
and just duplicate this tab over and go over to example product, we don't see any images. We don't see any errors in the console
00:39
or the network or anything like that, but we don't have any image, which isn't great. So we're going to provide a fallback image. Let's go over to our product.
00:46
So product.php, and this is where we're going to define this once again, overloading a method over on the media library. Okay, so we need an example, a sort of fallback image first of all.
00:59
So I'm going to go ahead and grab this one and just pop it straight into the public directory here. Again, for legal reasons, I don't own this image, so I can't include it in the resources,
01:08
but you can go ahead and find one. Okay, so now that's in there, let's define this out. So inside of our product model, we are going to go ahead and create out a method
01:20
called register media collection or collections. And again, that doesn't return anything. So what we're going to do is add a media collection, which technically we already have the default one,
01:38
but we need to sort of redo this, but then chained onto that, what we can do is use a fallback URL. So we can just pass a URL to an image.
01:47
This doesn't have to be hosted on your site. It could be somewhere else, but in our case, we're going to use the URL helper to go through to storage and no product image.png.
02:01
That's all we need to do. So heading back over now, you can see that we've got that no image available image showing.
02:07
If this doesn't work for you at first, you might need to go ahead and run phpArtisan storage link. You might even need to do that for the previous images that we added,
02:18
the actual product images, because we need to create a sim link to that path. So when we look at the URL, we've got a slash storage that needs to get linked up publicly
02:30
so users can actually see the images. So if you have any trouble to that with doing that before, just make sure you run the storage link command to create that sim link.
02:38
So there we go. We have a fallback image. We can also provide these for our variations as well. And we're gonna look at that in the next part.
02:46
We're pretty much gonna do exactly what we've done for our product for our variations so we can see the images that we've uploaded on our variations as well.
