I include images in every blog article i write, and the only thing that lets ocP down is the way it deploys images, and at the moment i'm pulling my hair out.

I will give you an example of how much of a nightmare i'm having. There is an old article that i noticed had a spelling mistake in it. So i click edit, make the correction, save the article, and all of a sudden the images that were there before, have vanished on publishing. I then return to the edit screen in order to replace the images, only to find that the images are displaying perfectly in both edit and preview...but when published they are no where to be seen.

The only way to ensure the images are shown is by deleting the images in edit and uploading them again.

Often the images will align and/or wrap incorrectly, so in order to get the images to display properly i have to go back into 'edit', delete ALL the images, and upload them ALL again.

Not only that but every time i edit, i have to set the publishing date to the correct one, other wise the old thread will end up popping to the top of the list as if it were a new blog post.

I've just had to edit, delete, upload, set the date, save...then do it all again, about 8 or 9 times.

I hate to critise ocP because in every other area it is such a pleasure. Chris, is there anything you can do to help? Is this a bug on my end?

If you could demonstrate the problem(s) in Jing video(s) -- so we can see end to end exactly how to reproduce, the problems can probably be solved very quickly.

As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

I've had a go at reproducing this one but couldn't, so if anyone can demonstrate step-by-step please let me know.

It seems to be 3 issues:
  1. Intermittent losing of attachment display in site context
  2. Publication date being prepopulated with an incorrect date omehow, when editing entries, and that date carrying through as the entry's new add date. Any idea where that date might be coming from Ollie? Is it the current date? Or perhaps some previously chosen publication date, that had already been manually circumvented after previously being set? I thought through various scenarios and couldn't find one to cause it.
  3. Alignment problems with left/right floated attachments.
