Hi Juan.

Are you using SilverStripe V3? If you are use <% loop %> instead of <% control %>.

<% loop Parent.function %> 
<% if $Image %>
$Image
<% else %>
<img src="$Themedir/images/your-image.jpg" alt="" />
<% end_if %> 
<% end_loop %>

You may have to share a little more info with me. Is anything being returned?

What is "<% control Parent.function %> " suppose to be/return?

<% if $Image %>

<% else %>
<img src="$Themedir/images/your-image.jpg" alt="" />
<% end_if %>

Hey Juan

Ah awesome, now I understand a little more :)

Looking through the Image.php code there is a function called getTag() that checks if the file exists. This is untested code but I believe it should work.

<% if Image.getTag %> 
$Image
<% else %> 
<img src="$Themedir/images/your-image.jpg" alt="" /> 
<% end_if %>

if that doesn't work try

<% if Image.getTag != NULL %> 
$Image
<% else %> 
<img src="$Themedir/images/your-image.jpg" alt="" /> 
<% end_if %>
