When I am creating a page and using the "Comcoda construction assistant:attachment" ans select the display type as "Images only: Embed with border and meda-data" what does the resulting page show the image with a Download link? I only want the image and be able to select it to show a larger image.

Did this change from v8?

This will be tuned a bit in the next patch release, but the quick answer is you want the inline choice, not the meta-data choice.

Chris,

I Tried the "inline" (ZIP/TAAR only: Display extracted files inline) and it still does not work
Do I need to attach the image as a Zip file?

"Embed directly (if possible)"

I made a quick screencast on the current work-in-progress for the next v9 patch release:
2013-04-29_2314 - ocProducts's library

This does differ from the last v9 release in a few ways, but fundamentally should be the same, which is why I am a little confused. As long as the "Embed directly (if possible)" display type is chosen, it should work just fine.

Changes coming in the next patch release reflected in this video:
  • It will default to "Embed directly (if possible)" for images
  • It will show a little border around them, if you opted to use a thumbnail as I did here (in the default theme: if you have a custom theme, you'd need to copy the new CSS we added through to your own to get this)
