I'm trying to create a new attribute as Image for category, I was able to create that attribute, but when I tried to upload an image it was impossible to save.

This is my code:

Wage/Categorylist/Setup/InstallData.php

namespace Wage\Categorylist\Setup;

use Magento\Framework\Module\Setup\Migration;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\InstallDataInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface;
use Magento\Catalog\Setup\CategorySetupFactory;

class InstallData implements InstallDataInterface
{
    public function __construct(CategorySetupFactory $categorySetupFactory)
    {
        $this->categorySetupFactory = $categorySetupFactory;
    }
    public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
    {
        $installer = $setup;
        $installer->startSetup();

        $categorySetup = $this->categorySetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);
        $entityTypeId = $categorySetup->getEntityTypeId(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::ENTITY);
        $attributeSetId = $categorySetup->getDefaultAttributeSetId($entityTypeId);
        $categorySetup->removeAttribute(
            \Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::ENTITY, 'thumbnail' );
        $categorySetup->addAttribute(
            \Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::ENTITY, 'thumbnail', [
                'type' => 'varchar',
                'label' => 'Featured Image',
                'input' => 'image',
                'backend' => 'Magento\Catalog\Model\Category\Attribute\Backend\Image',
                'required' => false,
                'sort_order' => 5,
                'global' => \Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_STORE,
                'group' => 'General Information',
            ]
        );
        $installer->endSetup();
    }
}

Note : When you applied abvoe complete code, upload category image show just preview image but after save category, image will not show.

this is magento version default bug.

To solve this issue by apply bellow patch.

Opne this url : https://github.com/magento/magento2/pull/5978/files

You have to override below core files code with file code from given URL.

vendor/magento/module-catalog/Controller/Adminhtml/Category/Image/Upload.php
vendor/magento/module-catalog/Controller/Adminhtml/Category/Save.php
vendor/magento/module-catalog/Model/Category.php
vendor/magento/module-catalog/Model/Category/Attribute/Backend/Image.php
vendor/magento/module-catalog/Model/Category/DataProvider.php

Now magento-2.1 working code for custom image attribute of category.

Let me know if you have any query/consern from above.

  • I override but still image is not showing after save category – Lead Developer Oct 19 '16 at 20:21
  • You have missed something, verify once again. because of above suggested code working and verify from my side. – Suresh Chikani Oct 20 '16 at 4:52
  • I override all core files through di.xml and I followed the same steps you given. can you please mail your module to jellamahendra@gmail.com. Thnak you!. – Lead Developer Oct 20 '16 at 10:15
  • 1
    For testing purpose, you can put suggested core file code in core module file without override. try and let me know if you still facing same problem. – Suresh Chikani Oct 20 '16 at 10:40
  • Okay. I will check now. – Lead Developer Oct 20 '16 at 10:43
