Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

Hell Yeah! Thanks a lot. You made my day.

Tried it first in 4.5.7 but there it did not work. 4.6.2 works fine.
So I will have to trie to update a couple of plugins now. Would have to do that anyway.
4.6.2 and etc rock! ;-)

Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

Just a little info:
I got rid of bot_image_upload because it was not working on 4.6.2 and I installed your abc_article_image which I like a lot. Unfortunately it does not work together with abc_prefix.

I dont want to expand your time on that too much. But if there would be an easy solution for that I would be more than glad to hear it.

Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

Hi

I should explain more my idea i think.

The two install share the same DB and intsall 2 has a prefix, then delete prefix_txp_image table (or rename it) and create a view of txp_image like this :

CREATE VIEW prefix_txp_image AS SELECT * FROM txp_image

After that change in the txp admin pref the directory to the image of the install 2 to point to the image directory of the intsall 1, then you will see images on both image tab install, i am not sur you can handle images (upload and delete) in the two install but you can test it, in local wamp server that works (relative path to the image folder on windows but not sure if that work on linux server).

Hope i am more clearer.

Cheers.

Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

An alias is a brilliant idea, if it works, even more if it’s writable. I have never tried it, will do, thanks @Dragondz!

Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

I tried it. All seems to work fine. This seems to be the best solution.
I can confirm that on Linux image folder set to “../images” is working.

Have to play around with it more. Two thumbs up Dragondz!

Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

I have to say that this opens a new dimension for me.
Because it makes me handle categories and plugins the same centralized way.
Tried it and haven´t found any problem yet.

Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

These simple SELECT * views should be updatable and insertable, probably even alterable. So everything should work, very cute!

Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

Yeah sometimes trying something odd can throw new directions of solving some problems.

Re: Two textpattern instances with one image folder

Hey guys!

So is this still a viable way to tackle multi-lingual publishing needs? Similarly, is it better than trying to wrestle with a fidgety MLP (which I’m scared to do for a client site)?

I’ve never setup a multilingual site or ever tried to use the multi-site functionality. But if the client owns and maintains .com, .fr, and .de domains, the multi-site approach to multilingual publishing seems reasonably attractive. In some ways, perhaps, even more logical as far as the editorial workflow goes and keeping content localized to it’s own identical system.

Status? Thoughts?
