    SOLVED RokSprocket images broken

    Posted 3 years 3 months ago
    • I have loaded RokSprocket into my site. But when I display the posts as Mosaic the image links are broken. When I look at the image url I see that they are absolute to my domain area but had the first section of the url added twice.

      How can I set these to be created correctly?

      My site is talkblog

      All menu links return to another site so use backlinks is browsing the actual blog post.

      Kind regards

      David

    • Just added a new Grids option and that breaks the images too.

      For instance the image link is
      http://166.63.0.201/~talkblog/blog-wp/wp-content/usr/local/apache/htdocs/~talkblog/blog-wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/iPhone-in-glass.jpg

      but if I change the image link to
      http://166.63.0.201/~talkblog/blog-wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/iPhone-in-glass.jpg
      it works.

      Not sure why it is adding the following twice.
      ~talkblog/blog-wp/wp-content/usr/local/apache/htdocs/

    • I believe you are missing a link relation setting somewhere. Are you using the standard WP editor? In JCE, you can set relative or absolute. Each time you add a link using the editor, it's going to use the setting to format the link. For instance if you set to relative (relative to your site root) and added a link to an image it could be something like: /images/stories/myimage.jpg. The system then adds teh root info at page load - www.mysite.com , creating www.mysite.com/images/stories/myimage.jpg . If you had the link option sert to absolute, and added teh link teh same way, your would get the duplication problem you are experiencing. www.mysite.com/http://www.mysite.com/images/stories/myimage.jpg

      At least that should put you on the right path. I'm no expert with WP.

    • ok I think I have fpound the issue.
      I was building the site usign IP address and not a domain name. I have now added a domain to changed the setting in WordPress and the images are displaying.
      new domain name wicko.uk

      Guess part of the WordPress thing. Much prefer Joomla but customer currently wants WordPress. For now anyway.
