Hi there,

I'm in the process of relaunching a site that contains quite a number of pages of static, but sometimes heavily illustrated articles for reference and just reading. I made a few steps with attachments to achieve this but found the attachment system quite tricky to use. E.g. I ended up with 6 times the same image in the list of attachments, because it was uploaded each time I did a preview of the page. And I didn't find a way to remove unnecessary attachments yet.

I thought it might be a better way - as mentioned in the WYSIWYG tutorial - to upload the images to uploads\website_specific and reference them by an URL. The tutorial doesn't mention if it is possible to use some kind of relative path here that doesn't break when the base directory changes, and if so, what that path would be.

Any hints highly appreciated,
Peter

Hi,

It should always be relative to the base URL. So almost just as you wrote it above.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. 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.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
