Captify Content and 'non-rooted' Joomla sites?

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I am adding "Captify Content" to our development website, which is currently housed in a subfolder, so it is accessed like this:

www.example.com/joomla_test/

When I add Images to the Article Intro text to support Captify Content, the images do not show up. I look at the HTML source and see that the img src attribute values look like this:
"/joomla_test/modules/mod_captifyContent/image.php?width=200&height=150&cropratio=4:3&image=/joomla_test/http://www.example.com/joomla_test/images/imagefile.png"

No matter what I do in the Article Editor, when I insert an image, the image properties in the Article show the absolute path to the file including the http:// etc.... but it seems like Captify Content is prepending the "server root" folder onto the "image=" argument.

Is there something I need to do w.r.t. inserting images in Articles, or is there a configuration setting I'm missing on Captify Content, or perhaps Captify Content is designed to work specifically with "rooted" sites and not 'nested' ones?

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

Our image resize script only works with relative urls so you cant hotlink or use absolute paths in your content to display images. Its an annoying limitation but one that seems to be easy for people to work around in most cases.

Thanks Anthony

Thanks... Can you give me a hint as to how I can make the article editor use relative URLs?

Hi there,
Thats in the editor configuration. You can of course edit the html source to do that as well.

Thanks Anthony
