Dear People. 
I`m currently creating a little 2D engine for the IOS, and I`m experiencing some dificulties with shaders. In fact, It is the first time I program an engine using the programable pipeline of OPEnGL, and than I think I´m doing something wrong. 
My engine works with a simple mesh that are used for all visible objects. This mesh is composed by two  triangles that are arranged as a quad. I `m sure that the vertex processing is ok, because I get the objects drawn correctly without texturing. 
Unfortunately, the texturing stuff seems to have a problem. I load an image from an application resource, and than put it on a memmory buffer. This biffer is passed to the shader as uniform. Texture coordinates (uv)
are passed as attributes. I use glDrawElements to perform drawing. 
The mesh is drawn correctly, but I have no texture . The resulting color is the same for all object pixels. I`m sure that the image is ok because I checked the image buffer contents before drawing. 
I put the code below. Maybe some of you can see what I´m missing. It is the method I use to draw each object. the method is full of my engine stuff (MY_ENGINE prefix).  I also put the shaders 
void MY_ENGINE_Graphics::DrawObject(MY_ENGINE_Drawable *drawable)
    Struct_3D_Mesh* mesh;
    MY_ENGINE_Shader* shader;
    MY_ENGINE_Transform *transform;
    StructPose * pose;
    U8 enabledShaderInputVariables;
    StructResourceID *shaderResource;
    GLint uniformLocations[NUM_UNIFORMS];
    U8 enabedShaderUniformVariables;
    GLuint shaderProgram;
    GLKMatrix4 modelViewMatrix;
    GLKMatrix4 modelViewProjectionMatrix;
    GLKMatrix3 normalMatrix;
    MY_ENGINE_Sprite * sprite;
    MY_ENGINE_TargaImage *colorMap = NULL;;
    MY_ENGINE_TargaImage *effectMap = NULL;

    shaderResource = drawable->GetShaderResourceId();
    if(shaderResource == NULL)
    shader = (MY_ENGINE_Shader*)mResourceProvider->GetResource(shaderResource);
    if(shader == NULL)
    shaderProgram = shader->GetShaderProgram();
    if(shaderProgram == 0)
    enabedShaderUniformVariables = shader->GetEnabledUniformVariables();
    enabledShaderInputVariables = shader->GetEnabledInputVariables();
    if(shaderProgram != mLastShader)
        mLastShader = shaderProgram;
    mesh = (Struct_3D_Mesh*)mResourceProvider->GetResource( drawable->GetMesh());
    if(mesh == NULL)
    sprite = (MY_ENGINE_Sprite *)mResourceProvider->GetResource(drawable->GetCurrentFrame());
    if(sprite != NULL)
        colorMap = sprite->GetMap(MY_ENGINE_COLOR_MAP);
        effectMap = sprite->GetMap(MY_ENGINE_EFFECT_MAP);

            //Bind and configure color texture
            glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, mTextureNames[MY_ENGINE_COLOR_MAP]);
            if(colorMap->colorDepth == 32)
                glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA,(GLsizei)colorMap->width,(GLsizei)colorMap->height, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,colorMap->pImageData);
            else if(colorMap->colorDepth == 24)
                glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB,(GLsizei)colorMap->width,(GLsizei)colorMap->height, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,colorMap->pImageData);
            glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
            glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
            glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_REPEAT);
            glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_REPEAT);
            //Bind and configure effect texture
            glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, mTextureNames[MY_ENGINE_EFFECT_MAP]);
            if(effectMap->colorDepth == 32)
                glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA,(GLsizei)effectMap->width,(GLsizei)effectMap->height, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, effectMap->pImageData);
            else if(effectMap->colorDepth ==24)
                glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB,(GLsizei)effectMap->width,(GLsizei)effectMap->height, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, effectMap->pImageData);
            glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
            glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
            glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_REPEAT);
            glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_REPEAT);

    if(enabledShaderInputVariables & MY_ENGINE_ENABLE_VertexPosition)
    if(enabledShaderInputVariables & MY_ENGINE_ENABLE_NormalVector)
        //Normal Vectors:
    if(enabledShaderInputVariables & MY_ENGINE_ENABLE_UV)
        //uv Vectors:
    else if(enabledShaderInputVariables & MY_ENGINE_ENABLE_VertexColor)
        //Color :


    //Collect uniform locations from shader
    for(U8 i = 0;i < NUM_UNIFORMS;i++)
        uniformLocations[i] = -1;
        if(enabedShaderUniformVariables & mUniformMasks[i])
            uniformLocations[i] = glGetUniformLocation(shaderProgram,*mUniformNames[i]);
     //Color map uniform 
    if(enabedShaderUniformVariables & mUniformMasks[UNIFORM_COLOR_MAP])
        glUniform1i(uniformLocations[UNIFORM_COLOR_MAP],MY_ENGINE_COLOR_MAP); //Passing the index of the texture unity to be used
    //effect map uniform
    if(enabedShaderUniformVariables & mUniformMasks[UNIFORM_EFFECT_MAP])
        glUniform1i(uniformLocations[UNIFORM_EFFECT_MAP], MY_ENGINE_EFFECT_MAP); //Passing the index of the texture unity to be used

    transform = (MY_ENGINE_Transform*)drawable->GetTransform();
    pose = transform->GetPose();
    modelViewMatrix = GLKMatrix4MakeTranslation(pose->posX,pose->posY,0);
    modelViewMatrix = GLKMatrix4Rotate(modelViewMatrix,pose->angle,0,0,1);
    modelViewMatrix = GLKMatrix4Multiply(mBaseModelViewMatrix, modelViewMatrix);
    normalMatrix = GLKMatrix3InvertAndTranspose(GLKMatrix4GetMatrix3(modelViewMatrix), NULL);
    modelViewProjectionMatrix = GLKMatrix4Multiply(mProjectionMatrix, modelViewMatrix);
    if(enabedShaderUniformVariables & mUniformMasks[UNIFORM_MODELVIEWPROJECTION_MATRIX])
       glUniformMatrix4fv(uniformLocations[UNIFORM_MODELVIEWPROJECTION_MATRIX], 1, 0, modelViewProjectionMatrix.m);
    if(enabedShaderUniformVariables & mUniformMasks[UNIFORM_NORMAL_MATRIX])
        glUniformMatrix3fv(uniformLocations[UNIFORM_NORMAL_MATRIX], 1, 0, normalMatrix.m);
    //At last, Draw!
    glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES,mesh->numFaces *3 , GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, mesh->faceBuffer);

The shaders:

Vertex shader

attribute vec4 position;
uniform mat4 modelViewProjectionMatrix;
attribute vec2 uv;
varying  vec2 fragTextCoord;
void main()"\
    gl_Position = modelViewProjectionMatrix *position;
    fragTextCoord = uv;
Fragment shader

uniform sampler2D colorMap;
varying mediump vec2 fragTextCoord;
void main()
    gl_FragColor = texture2D(colorMap, fragTextCoord);

Note that I´m using only one texture: The ColorMap. The effect map is aimend for effects like bump map and so on. But it is not been used and the shaders are not referencing it.

At least your glActiveTexture call is wrong, it should probably be like this:


Edit: I think this will help you:

glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0 + index);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textureid);
glUniform1i(location, index);
