Meet Our Magento HTML5 Uploader Extension. Get Rid of Flash Headache

UPDATE: as Magento 1.x reached end-of-support on June 30, 2020, all M1 extensions were removed from Marketplace on July 7, 2020. But we still take care of partners who decided not to migrate to Magento 2 for now. So if you still need our Magento HTML5 Uploader extension, you can download it from this page (find the link at the bottom). In case you still didn’t migrate your Magento 1.x website to Magento 2.x, take a look at our post.

 

Why did We decide to Develop HTML5 Uploader?

For some time now, popular web browsers are limiting the use of Flash in favor of HTML5. Why everyone hates Flash so much? The main concern lies in its security level. Because Flash is a closed, proprietary system on a web that deserves open standards. It’s a popular punching bag for hackers, which puts users at risk over and over again.

For many years Adobe has been trying to improve Flash Player security level, but no matter what they do (and did) it never seems enough. New vulnerabilities appear faster than the old ones are fixed.

Security is not the only characteristic where HTML5 outruns Flash. HTML5 is fully responsive and is supported by all browsers and devices. It’s also has a lighter code, uses less CPU, and is SEO Friendly (while search engines hate Flash). Also, there is no need to install any third-party tools to view it (you need Adobe Flash Player to view Flash).

Out of the box, Magento uses an outdated image uploader that is based on Flash but as of now, Flash is dead, so it is no way any browser will support it. As a result, you won’t be able to upload images for products or CMS content in modern browsers.

Because this issue was one of the biggest concerns for Magento users for the past years, Maven has developed an alternative method of uploading images and CMS content to Magento-based stores. Our solution is based on HTML5 technology, which is modern, stable, and won’t get outdated in the nearest future, so you won’t be forced to look for another solution for a long time.

Our Magento HTML5 Uploader is bug-free, easy to install and use. It allows you to simultaneously upload multiple images both for products and CMS content in a convenient way. Moreover, it’s 100% free.

 

Magento HTML5 Uploader Features

  • 100% Free
  • Easy installation
  • Multiple image types support
  • Multiupload functionality
  • Drag and Drop interface
  • Thumbnail generation
  • Upload progress indicator
  • Customizable image names
  • Customizable storage path
  • Large image support
  • Developer friendly (Full source code included)
 

Installation Process

As we mentioned, the installation process is extremely easy but requires patience. Please, follow the steps below to install Magento HTML5 Uploader:

 

Before installing the HTML 5 Uploader:

a) Disable compilation System. Go to Tools > Compilation > Compilation state > Disabled

b) Go to System > Cache Management > Select All: Disabled

c) Go to System > Cache Management > Select All: Refresh

d) Then click ON all buttons: Flush Magento Cache, Flush Cache Storage, Flush Javascript/CSS Cache, Flush Swatch Image Cache, Flush Catalog Image Cache.

e) Log out from the admin panel

 

Installation of the HML5 Uploader:

  1. Use FTP to copy the uploader {html5upload-master}. Overwrite directories: ‘app’ and ‘skin’ to the root directory
  2. Log in to the admin panel.
  3. Go to System > Index Management > Select All > Reindex Data: Submit
  4. Go to System > Cache Management > Select All: Enable
  5. Go to System > Cache Management > Refresh: Submit
  6. Then click ON all buttons:  Flush Magento Cache, Flush Cache Storage, Flush Javascript/CSS Cache, Flush Swatch Image Cache, Flush Catalog Image Cache.
  7. Log out and Log In
  8. Go to System > Configuration > HTML5 uploader > General Settings > Enable: Yes
 

After the installation of the HTML5 Uploader:

a) Go to System > Index Management > Select All > Reindex Data: Submit

b) Go to System > Cache Management > Refresh: Submit

c) Then click on all buttons:  Flush Magento Cache, Flush Cache Storage, Flush Javascript/CSS Cache, Flush Swatch Image Cache, Flush Catalog Image Cache.

d) Log out from the admin panel

Important notice: repeat actions, mentioned in an “After the installation of the HTML5 ” paragraph at least 3-4 times, in other words, log in to the admin panel and log out.
 

That’s it. Now you have the HTML5 Uploader instead of a Flash uploader.

 

How does Magento HTML5 Uploader work?

The process of uploading a product image looks like this:

Magento HTML5 Uploader drug and drop

As you can see it’s an easy to use drag-and-drop interface. Successfully uploaded images look like this:

Magento HTML5 Uploader Success

Uploading images for CMS content is also that easy:

Magento HTML5 Uploader media storage Magento HTML5 Uploader Media Storage success

Here, at Maven, we already use Magento HTML5 uploader on the majority of our clients’ projects as a more convenient way for uploading product and CMS content images. We hope you will like the way it functions as well.

  1. Thank you for your great job! I was trying to test the uploader using the link above (on Magento Connect). There seem to be some js/css files missing in the package. Could you please check? Thank you for your time!

    1. Hi Alex,
      Thank you for letting us know. You are right, some files were missing. We’ve updated the extension on Magento Connect. Please, download it again and let us know if everything works right.
      Sorry for the inconveniences.

    1. Hi Oleg!
      I was able to download the module now, and thanks for the quick response!
      However I still have some problems. I get to choose the image but when then nothing happens. I can see that the image is selected but it’s not uploading and I dont see and upload button?

  2. Hi Oleg,
    Thank you for this extension!
    I’ve found a bug in app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/maven/uploader/cms_uploader.phtml file (line 61 in v0.4.0) :
    “echo $this->getJsonConfig()” instead of “echo $this->getConfigJson()” which gives an empty config and raises a JS error.
    And if you want to add French translation (fr_FR), here is the CSV file content:
    “Files to upload:”,”Fichiers à uploader :”
    “or drop files here”,”ou glisser-déposer les fichiers ici”
    “Upload Files”,”Uploader les fichiers”
    Sorry, i did not find your git repo (Github, Bitbucket, Gitlab?)

  3. Hi, I installed this extension and switched it on. I can choose an image (with button or drag and drop), but the upoad does not finish: the green bar stays at about a quarter. What is the solution for this? This is the case in Chrome and Firefox.
    Peter

  4. I am running 1.9.3.3 and the native image upload is broken. I installed
    your extension and after I choose the image I want to upload I get a new
    page with a Disallowed file type error:0. It is a normal jpg file. Any
    thoughts?

  5. I’m getting an 404 error in admin panel, in configuration of Uploader on Magento 1.7.0.2, what can be the problem?

  6. Thank you for creating this. As of speaking your awesome HTML5Uploader does not seem to exist on Magento Connect any longer.
    Are you planning to provide it there again or could you provide a zip or download package somewhere else… like say GitHub?

  7. This is very useful extension. The only problem is when you create a Downloadable product, and then in Downloadable Information try to upload a file, it just does nothing.

    1. Yes, sure. You can still download our HTML5 Uploader for Magento 1.x from this page (find the link in the bottom of the post, above comments). Our extension is based on HTML5 technology, which is modern, stable and won’t get outdated in the nearest future so you won’t be forced to look for another solution for a long time.

  8. hello, since the eviction of Flash on the browser, I tried to install your extension on the version: ver. 1.13.1.0 from Magento.

    The extension appears present and active in the configuration, however when I select the image tab of a reference, I have no interface allowing me to upload the images. Do you have a clue?

    Thank you

    1. Our extension was built for M1.7. It fits to all versions of Magento from 1.7 and higher. Thus, we suggest you to upgrade your website to a higher version or migrate to Magento 2.x

  9. Hi, i get an error after install when i go to edit product page:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function getConfig() on a non-object in /var/www/app/store/includes/src/Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Catalog_Product_Helper_Form_Gallery_Content.php on line 50

    Tk,
    Federico

    1. Try to turn off the compilation before installing the extension and turn it back on after the installation is complete.

  10. Hi
    I unpacked the archive in the Magento root folder and nothing happens.
    I dragged each file in one at a time (I did not replace the entire app and skin folders, to avoid overwriting existing files)

    Magento ver. 1.9.2.3

  11. Thank you @Azarim for posting about the enabling step, as I had followed the installation instructions was very worried when it wasn’t showing!!!

    @Oleg Yemchuk could that step be amended to the Installation Process guide please?

  12. Hi,

    Firstly thanks for this fantastic plugin just wondering where thje images are stored and if I have a permissions issue as I can upload and place holders show but no images on my products or in admin after I press save.

    1. They are stored in {base_meadia_url}/catalog/product, just were Magento stores products. Nothing is changed in terms of storage path comparable to Magento Out-of-the-Box

  13. I’m getting an 404 error in admin panel, in configuration of Uploader on Magento
    My magento version 1.7.0.2,
    I login to the admin panel, Flush cache, Log out., Log in to the admin panel again. I did several time so. Where else could be a problem?

  14. Problem solved with 404 erorr, It was needed refresh server cache one more time. But now I receiving this error
    {“error”:”Disallowed file type.”,”errorcode”:0} when tryning upload picture. How I can solve this?
    Thanks.

  15. Hello,
    I have an issue with the uploader. For me Mage::getSingleton(‘catalog/product_media_config’)->getBaseTmpMediaPath() returns “\/home\/*SERVER_NAME*\/public_html\/media\/tmp\/catalog\/product”
    Note the /tmp/. The files are uplaoded in /media/tmp/. I am pretty sure that that’s not the desired outcome.

    1. Files initially are uploaded to “tmp/catalog” and then are moved by Magento to “catalog” during the process of product save. Upload to “tmp/catalog” was also the way how Magento old uploader had worked.

  16. I tried to upload a .jpg image file and I get {“error”:”Disallowed file type.”,”errorcode”:0}

    Could you help me?

    1. Please, share the following info:
      1. The version of the Magento
      2. How did you get this result? (every step that you are making):
      – Which page in the admin panel are you opening?
      – What image are you uploading? (attach the exact image)
      – What do you see on the screen when uploading or upload is over? (attach the screenshot)

  17. Hi, I get {“error”:”Disallowed file type.”,”errorcode”:0} when tryning upload picture. I tried .jpg , .jpeg, .png with same result

    How I can solve this?

    Thanks.

    1. Please, share the following info:

  18. After further investigation I am also seeing {“error”:”Disallowed file type.”,”errorcode”:0} this is also the case if I remove the display:none from css so that I can press the upload button.

  19. Hi, thanks for proposing help.
    I’ve just installed it, seems to be ok.
    But when I try to click on a product in the list, I just have a white page with written “Images” on top corner.
    Any idea how to fix please?

  20. It works fine.

    Don’t forget to enable the Extension in your admin panel. The Html5 uploader shows in your Configuration panel at the bottom left.

    Now Flash is not working any more this Extension was very helpful.

    So many thanks!

    1. So, the issue is in the save process of Magento. We don’t know which kind of customizations you have there or what makes an image to be lost in the saving process. That needs debugging with your particular code. We can provide that as a support service for you. Please, contact contacts@mavenecommerce.com for any further info regarding our services.

    1. Unfortunately, we’ve never tested the extension on that version. You can try and if any problems appear, let us know.

  21. I am getting this error
    {“error”:”Disallowed file type.”,”errorcode”:0}

    Magento 1.7 and php5.4

    I extract the zip and paste all files as per folder instructions and enable module and refresh flush magento and logout admin and login again and i am getting this error

  22. am getting this error
    {“error”:”Disallowed file type.”,”errorcode”:0}

    Magento 1.7 and php5.4

    I extract the zip and paste all files as per folder instructions and enable module and refresh flush magento and logout admin and login again and i am getting this error

    I have uploaded updated uploader.php from google drive as mention above link but now getting “false” error

  23. Hello,
    Magento 1.5.1.0 (on testing version for now, not on production)

    The installation seems to be done OK, uploader works in WYSIWYG, but in Product editing mode not. When I edit existing product, with previously uploaded images, I cannot see any images in Images Tab. And also new uploaded image does not shows in images:

    https://ibb.co/4p3f3zd

    Could you please help me? Thanks.

    1. Hi Sam,
      Unfortunately, such an issue does not have a simple fix.
      To help you, we should do some in-depth review.
      We will contact you directly with further steps available.

  24. I wish I could see @Aurélien E-commerce Pau full instructions in his above comment. I’m about to attempt to install on ver. 1.5.1.0 like @Fischo, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to run into the same problem with the product editing mode. Is there a way you can share @Aurélien E-commerce Pau’s instructions with me? Thank you!

  25. In case you facing issue with ModSecurity it is a good idea to convert images to base64
    Here is a small update in case someone needs this fix

    file: skin/adminhtml/default/default/js/maven_html5upload/script.js. line 180

    Replace:
    xhr.open(“POST”, $id(“upload”).action, true);
    xhr.setRequestHeader(“X-File-Name”, file.name);
    xhr.send(file);

    With:
    if (file) {
    const reader = new FileReader();
    reader.addEventListener(“load”, function () {
    // convert image file to base64 string
    // start upload
    xhr.open(“POST”, $id(“upload”).action, true);
    xhr.setRequestHeader(“X-File-Name”, file.name);
    xhr.send(reader.result);
    }, false);
    reader.readAsDataURL(file);
    }

    And php code

    file app/code/community/Maven/Html5uploader/Model/Media/Uploader.php

    Add function
    private function base64_to_image($base64_string, $output_file) {
    // open the output file for writing
    $ifp = fopen( $output_file, ‘wb’ );

    // split the string on commas
    // $data[ 0 ] == “data:image/png;base64”
    // $data[ 1 ] ==
    $data = explode( ‘,’, $base64_string );

    // we could add validation here with ensuring count( $data ) > 1
    fwrite( $ifp, base64_decode( $data[ 1 ] ) );

    // clean up the file resource
    fclose( $ifp );

    return $output_file;
    }

    And

    at line 108

    Replace
    $_result = file_put_contents(
    $destinationFile,
    file_get_contents(‘php://input’)
    );

    With

    $_result = $this->base64_to_image(file_get_contents(‘php://input’),$destinationFile);

    Thank you

  27. Hello,
    I installed the extension but when I upload a file I see the green bar full, then the item appear in the galery but the tmp image url is in http 404.
    And if I save the product the image is move from tmp directory to the catalog but in 404.
    It’s seems the file name is increment by “_1.jpg” in the database but not in the directory.
    Do you know how to fix that ?

    Please help.

  32. I uploaded the plugin and extracted it to the root folder where magento is installed. I unzipped, cleared cache, logged out and logged in. I enabled the module. After that, when entering a product, a “Images” message appears in the upper left corner and the rest of the screen is completely blank. I don’t use the compiler, so it is disabled. My magento is version 1.9.2.0. Please, could you help me solve this.

    1. Hi Magno,
      It is difficult to define a problem from your description.
      We will contact you directly to help you resolve an issue.

  33. Hi, I m trying to upload a png (i tried also with jpg) in the attributes settings.
    I had the error {“error”:”Disallowed file type.”,”errorcode”:0}, but after using the new Uploader.php that I have found in the comments of this post, i have now simply “false” and white screen.

    Have u got a solution?

    1. Hi Paolo,
      In your case, the issue does not have a simple fix.
      To help you, we should do some in-depth review.
      We will contact you directly with further steps available.

  34. Hi, I installed this extension and switched it on. I can choose an image (with button or drag and drop), but the upoad does not finish: the green bar stays at about a quarter. Is there any solution for this?I am on Magento 1.9.2.1

    1. Hi Alexandru,

      We will contact you directly to help you resolve an issue.

    1. Hi Gavin,
      This issue is not connected with an uploader. It happens due to the image resizing mechanism of Magento.

  35. I’m having the same problem as Fabian and Gaspar. The blank page with just ‘Images’ on it is displayed whether the plugin is enabled or disabled.
    When I view source it shows this;

    Images

  36. Thank you so much for building this solution and for making it available free of charge. It worked perfectly on our 1.7.0.2 Magento sites straight out of the box, and I couldn’t be happier and more relieved! And it’s definitely way more sophisticated and easier to use than Magento’s old flash version… You guys are legends! I will definitely be turning to you guys for other plugins… thank you.

    1. Hi George,
      I believe that our specialist did email you. Now, he’s working on a problem.
      For any further info or updates, please follow us up on the email.

  37. Absolutely awesome! You guys are lifesavers. Works excellent on Mag 1.5.1.0 like it should.

    I was hesitant to give it a go because I’m always worried about new extensions possilby breaking our site, but Andrey Barsukov provided great customer support by reassuring us that it is only backend service extension – so, the worst that could happen is that it just wouldn’t work. But, it works excellent, so no worries here.

    Much thanks!

  38. Hello,

    Our website is using magento 1.9.2

    I carefully followed the instruction on installing the extension but I don’t see installed when I checked Systems > Configuration > Advanced >Advanced.

    I also checked in the Product Information > Images and there is no Image Upload Interface that can be found.

    Have I missed something? Can you please help?

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Teddy,
      Sorry, for the delayed feedback.
      Try to do the following: Clear the Cash – Log Out – Log In – Turn On Module.

  39. Hello!
    I have installed the Uploader (Magento 1.7.0.2 with PHP version 5.6.40 ). The upload works, which is of course very pleasing. Thanks a lot! However, since then, exporting an XML catalog file and a zip file with the catalog images no longer works.
    These files were previously sent to a different server every day. The server does receive the files, but both with 0 KB.
    Could it be that the HTML5 uploader is the cause?
    Thanks, for your help!

    1. No, it couldn’t. Once the product is saved everything works according to the code which the uploader doesn’t affect in any way.

  40. So I checked whole internet to fix image upload on my magento 1.9x as native flash upload is no longer supported.

    Tried like 10 different ways, nothing worked. Then I stumbled upon here and WORKED LIKE A CHARM at first go.

    Beautiful extension. Brilliant.

    Just a suggestion if you still maintaining this, Try to retrive same sort order as upload. Image sort order gets messed up. For now, I name my images as product1-1, product1-2 and i coded below script, This might help you to maintain sort order of images

    *********************
    update catalog_product_entity_media_gallery_value a
    inner JOIN
    (SELECT b.*, SUBSTRING_INDEX(SUBSTRING_INDEX(SUBSTRING_INDEX(b.value,’.’,1),’-‘,-1),’_’,1)
    as row FROM catalog_product_entity_media_gallery b where b.entity_id = (select entity_id from catalog_product_entity_media_gallery ORDER by value_id desc limit 1)) c
    on a.value_id = c.value_id
    set a.position = c.row, a.label = case when c.row = 2 then ‘hover’
    else null end

  41. update catalog_product_entity_media_gallery_value a
    inner JOIN
    (SELECT b.*, SUBSTRING_INDEX(SUBSTRING_INDEX(SUBSTRING_INDEX(b.value,’.’,1),’-‘,-1),’_’,1)
    as row FROM catalog_product_entity_media_gallery b where b.entity_id = (select entity_id from catalog_product_entity_media_gallery ORDER by value_id desc limit 1)) c
    on a.value_id = c.value_id
    set a.position = c.row, a.label = case when c.row = 2 then ‘hover’
    else null end

  42. Hello, the plugin is awesome and seems to work for the most part! Is it possible to upload mp4 videos using this plugin? I’m currently getting an error:

    INCORRECT FILE TYPE: File information: video.mp4 type: video/mp4 size: 315816 bytes

    Thank you for your help 🙂

  43. Hi 😉 when I upload the file (simple jpg or png) the green bar appear but stops at 1/3- there is the following error on the console:

    Magento 1.8.1.0

    unexpected token XMLHttpRequest.UploadFile.xhr.onreadystatechange

  44. Hi There,

    I tried to upload the image but it stops immediately with error in console.

    VM130:1 Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0
    at JSON.parse ()
    at XMLHttpRequest.UploadFile.xhr.onreadystatechange

    Did you experience this ?

  45. I have the same problem as many referring to the image upload presenting the message: {“error”:”Disallowed file type.”,”errorcode”:0}

    I made the new uploader.php available here, but now it learns false when trying to upload a jpg image.

  46. Magento 1.7.0.2

    Hi,

    is it possible to include your image uploader to another magento 1 extensions which offers an image upload (Bundle Item description with image) in the bundle item backend.

    Could you please describe the steps necessary to replace the standard image uploader in this extension with your great extension.

    Thanks

    1. Such a process requires in-depth research of your exact situation. We will contact you directly with further steps.

  47. Well Done!
    Thanks a lot.
    I’m saving your address for the future and would happily recommend you for using your services or buying products from you.

  54. Using Php 5.6 / Magento 1.9.1.0 . Extension got installed but when I upload a file I see the green bar full and after that no action is happening. Thumbnails also not showing / no button/link shows to insert image

  55. Hello – I am not super familiar with Magento, so pardon me if this a dumb question. (1.9.01, if that matters).

    The instructions say “Overwrite directories: ‘app’ and ‘skin’ to the root directory” – and that sounds simple, but don’t those directories house most of my current theme/design? It feels like overwriting those entire directories on my ftp could have…problematic results.

    Any assistance is appreciated.

  61. Hi, I’ve tried to install the HTML5 Uploader but I run into some problems.

    Before I copied the App and Skin directory to the root directory of Magento I did rename the original directories so I always can go back to the old situation.

    After copied the App and Skin directory and the package.xml file to the Magento server I can not acces the Magento Dashboard anymore. I do get the message: This page isn’t working anymore. surya-tek.net redirected you too many times. To fix this issue try clearing your cookies. I did clear the cookies but still the site isn’t working anymore. I did get back to the “Old” situation and the page is working again but I’m not able to install HTML5 Uploader. Can you please help me out? Much appreciated

  62. Hi Stanislav-

    It’s giving me an error and saying I can’t download it securly. Can TGZ be unzipped from a mac? I’ve never worked with TGZ files before, only zip.

    1. Hi Amy, Yes.
      Double click on zip, and Mac automatically unzips it by itself. Let me know if it doesn’t work for you.

  63. After installed the 2 directories app and skin plus the package file I can’t start my magento dashboard anymore. It gives an error message. This page is not working correctly.

    Can you help me out please?

    Kind regards Johan

  64. Oeps sorry my previous message already replied. I thought something went wrong because I didn’t see my previous message show up. Sorry

  65. Hi Stanislav Horetskiy,

    I feel a bit inconvient to ask if you did already contacted me directly?

    I understand this plugin is all free and you even help looked out who have a problem.

    I’ve been checking my mail box and my spambox but did not receive any mail from you.

    Did you send it or perhaps to busy?

    Stanislav , like I said I feel a bit inconvient but I hope so much I can install this plugin. Otherwise I have to migrate to an other platform. I hope you can help me out.

    Many thx in advance

    Kind regards

    Johan

  66. Hi Stanislav,

    First off all you don’t ow me anything for sure. It’s already great that some people made a solution for the Magento Uploader problem because of not supporting flash anymore.

    On the other hand if you say we will contact you directly on June 21 and by now I still haven’t heard anything from you that’s also a bit slow. Better don’t make promises if you can’t follow through.

    Kind regards

    Johan
