Path for locally stored cover image 4 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi,
MediaLibrary Pro 2.1 for Joomla 2.5.6.
I tried to upload cover images manually. I do not want to fetch from Amazon.
The image files are correctly stored in the folder
Code:

components/com_medialibrary/covers/.

Example of the path on the media edit page:
Code:

/components/com_medialibrary/covers/9789163335938_264cfc56.jpg

after clicking Set Local Cover Path.

The image is not shown. The url of the cover image on the detail page is:
Code:

http://components/com_medialibrary/covers/9789163335938_264cfc56.jpg


If I remove the leading '/' on the edit screen the following url is used:
www.aaf.scorpionshops.com/components/com...covers/no-cover.jpg.

Please assist, thanks,
guri

Hello,

If you wish upload local image for media - you need, set fetch info to "from My own" - and upload image what you wish. After that save all.

Button "Set Local Cover Path" - need for set cover what you download from Amazon - as image for media.

So if you at start download al linfo from Amazon (njgether with cover), you switch to "from My own", and after that - press that button. And in Media details - covers for user will go from yours local covers folder

Thanks,
OrdaSoft team

Hi,
Sorry, but I cannot make this work.
The image url is wrong;
Code:

http://components/com_medialibrary/covers/9789163335938_264cfc56.jpg

will obvious not work.
Could yoy please be more specific on how to manually upload and where to.

This is the workflow I have used:
1. Select New Media
2. Select Media Type: Book
3. Book-id auto-generated, ISBN entered, language and categories selected.
4. Fetch Information: Selected 'On your own'
5. Entered Titel, Author, Publisher, Publ date, Num of Pages
6. Browsed to local folder for image file for cover, the image file is dipslayed in text box 'Upload picture' with full local path.
7. Save & Close

Live example:
Code:

http://www.aaf.scorpionshops.com/index.php/vart-bibliotek?task=showCategory&catid=1

See the urls for the images not displyed.

Thanks,
BUT
"need 6 self point upload" ????

I DO have uploaded an image, it IS stored in cove folder, but NOT displayed on front page.
DO PLEASE look at the URL:
Code:

http://components/com_medialibrary/covers/9789172320604_e4540345.png

(copied image address from front page) - the server part is missing from the URL.

regards
guri
