Images Folder Problem

Images Folder Problem

I found another issue that will probably frustrate those that have linux servers where capitalization is a factor in file names.

The site pulls all of it's images from the folder "images" with a lowercase i.

But the original folder in the package is "Image" with an uppercase I.

After banging my head trying to figure out why all the admin images were not showing, this is what the issue was.

I would love to see WA standardize all folder names on lowercase. Much easier on everyone.

OK it's settled. We'll tell WA about it in the morning.

Ughhh.. this images folder is a real issue... if you rename the folder to lowercase "images" to make the admin section work correctly, the front-end does not work.

So the front-end pulls its paths from the uppercase "Images" while the admin pulls from lowercase "images."

It looks like the front end and backend both use Images as the folder. For your own uploaded media (product thumbs, etc), imagesupload is used. I agree with making everything lowercase, but looking at the code as is it looks like the cases are ok to me.

Justin,

I should have been more specific... if you look into the CMS portion (where the Power CMS was integrated), the buttons for save, insert, etc. as well as the backgrounds pull from "images" with lowercase. Yes, the rest of the site pulls from "Images". But, the CMS portion looks a little obscure without the images.

For example, the front of the site, here is the path: logo.png

And in the CMS portion, here is the path to the Save Button: btn_save.gif

I had to make a duplicate folder of Images and name it images for the CMS portion to display correctly.

Best regards,

Brian
