Relative url paths as used with shortcodes

resolved (4 posts) (2 voices)

  1. Hi,

    Am developing a site in test environment ... so the relative path thing is important as I'll be changing to my domain soon ... see page here:

    http://workflows.wpengine.com/services/

    The shortcode used as follows ... don't seem to be having much luck with relative path syntax ... am I missing something? Would have thought /wf-content/images/services-mobile-websites.png would have worked ....

    [image_frame style="framed" align="center" width="one_fourth" prettyphoto="false" link_to="false"]http://workflows.wpengine.com/wf-content/images/services-mobile-websites.png[/image_frame]

    Would you be most kind as to advise me - couldn't find anything in forum. I'd be most grateful

    Thanks Mark

    Hello workflows,

    The resize script requires absolute path. It would be best to just use absolute path or you can disable image resizing in Dashboard -> your theme -> Image Resizing.

  3. Hi,

    The resize script .. TimThumb is it? ... Works extremely well .. I like it. What a great productivity tool.

    However, I develop websites on a subdomain ... and have a lot of absolute urls to change on moving to the destination domain ... so I just wanted to be clear on one thing ...

    Is the limitation with absolutes paths and the resize script an issue related to the resize script or is it something that you can rectify in future themes?

    The information will prevent this question arising in my mind everytime I do this.

    Either way no prob ... could you just advise me as to which?

    Thanks Mark

    It's a limitation with the timthumb resize script. You can switch to Wordpress resizing in Dashboard -> your theme -> Image Resizing.
