Sub Domains and absolute urls for images

Sub Domains and absolute urls for images

I have a primary domain and sub domain. I have setup the sub domain in Parallels as m.mydomain.com for example as this will be the mobile version of the same website.

I want to use the same database and CMS for both with the admin being on the Primary domain. Although this works fine, the problem I have is any pictures uploaded to the primary domain within Admin use a relative URL. This equates to the sub domain having a broken link where any picture should be.

Is there anyway that Power CMS can display absolute URLs or alternatively code I could put on the sub domain webpage that displays the CMS copy which takes any relative URL and converts this into an absolute URL?

Any help appreciated.

No, the sub domain will not be able to access images that are part of the primary domain.

The sub domain starting point is the folder assigned to the sub domain, any folders bellow that cannot be accessed b y the subdomain, they are not visible to the subdomain.

Thanks for the reply.

So basically Power CMS can use the same database for primary and sub domains but not the same images.

In effect, there is no way of using absolute URLs for images in Power CMS other than actually going into the source code in admin and typing in the domain URL in front of the relative URL. Is this correct?

Obviously when I do this, the images then show in the sub domain website.
