Re: Images are 1st class citizens of TXP

Thanks Bloke

This may be the answer I was looking for, I am not sure. Clarification is needed.
If I don’t use the image uploader there is no image ID to refer to, but are you saying that if I already know the name I can refer to it without using the image uploader.

Does textpattern use image NAME to directly reference the IMAGES folder and therefore doesn’t care if there is a NAME table in the database?

<txp:images name=’<txp:custom_field name=“ISBN-13” />.jpg’> <txp:thumbnail />
</txp:images>

Is this saying look in the IMAGES folder for ‘<txp:custom_field name=“ISBN-13” />.jpg’ not look in the image table for ‘<txp:custom_field name=“ISBN-13” />.jpg’ and refer to url from there?

If this is the case I can work with that like crazy.

I am I understanding this correctly?

Ah, errr no. I was going on the 2nd of your premises whereby you said:

So ok I will use the image uploader.

The txp:images tag can only work on what it knows is in the database. If you’re bypassing TXP then I’m afraid you’re stuck with doing things manually: and that includes resizing.

Sorry if I got your hopes up unnecessarily.

Re: Images are 1st class citizens of TXP

Can someone – more technical than myself – please add container examples of <txp:images></txp:images> to the CMS documentation on this page?

Example 2 is where I’m guessing it goes but the page has not been completed properly.

Re: Images are 1st class citizens of TXP

Phil, just added an example that was hiding out on the image_info page, and one of my own that shows how to use a script like timthumb.php. Not sure if that’s kosher for wiki docs, but it’s sure been helpful.
