Thanks for visiting our forum again. Last few days were a bit busy with some stuffs. Today we are going to discuss a most common issue for the Magento 2 installers. “Images and admin-panel icons are missing or not displaying“.
E-commerce websites are increasing very rapidly. We wish all of them a very good business. Magento being one of the most commonly used e-Commerce platform,there are a lot of friends facing the issue. Magento have many advantages. Open source and simplicity along with ample features helps them to keep the market grow.
There a a lot of fixes already available in the internet. But I would like to share a quick-fix for my readers.
If you want to refer more in detail. They have a well written documentation
- Go to pub/static directory and remove everything except the .htaccess file (For a security ,create a folder named ‘dump’ and copy everything except .htaccess file to the ‘dump’ folder).
- Open app/etc/di.xml file and change the line ‘Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Symlink‘ with ‘Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Copy‘ (Basically just replace ‘Symlink’ with ‘Copy’).
- Refresh Admin Panel and Front End.
This would normally fix the issues. If still you face the same issue, make sure you have proper access permission for the folders.
