IImage Browser 1.5.2 looks for file in /wp-admin/ (4 posts)

    I just installed IImage Browser 1.5.2 on a couple of WordPress 2.9.2 installations without success - out of the box.

    Clicking on the "Image Browser" button from the edit panel attempts to open this...

    /wp-admin/iimage-browser.php

    ...and, understandably, returns a "file not found" message.

    I can see that the iimage-browser.php file is in the

    /wp-content/plugins/iimage-browser/

    directory.

    Indeed, line 68 of image-browser-plugin.php points to the /wp-admin/ directory.

    So I copied the iimage-browser.php file from the plugin directory to the /wp-admin/ directory. Now things appear to work as intended.

    My question: Is this the way it should be? Should I really be copying a plugin file to the /wp-admin/ directory? Is this perhaps an artifact of the way things USED to be done (this IS an old plugin)?

    TIA

    That is an old plugin, and largely unnecessary in newer versions of WP which have image uploading and editing so much more neatly integrated.

    But I do remember that plugin, used it a lot in the past, and the answer is yes--you're doing it exactly right. Copying that file into wp-admin is the way to get the plugin to work.

    Thanks, @jugoretz.

    I find it useful for at least 2 reasons:

    1) it doesn't add unwanted CSS classes;

    2) it facilitates embedding into pages and blog posts images that are part of the NextGen gallery.

    On point #2: If NextGen gallery images are checked as "excluded", they don't appear in the "insert media/image" dialog while editing a page or blog post.

    I also kinda like the 1994-ish UI. :-)

    All good points. When I used to use it more, I hacked it up a little to add some options for how to insert the image--

    • thumbnail with link to full but with no lightbox effect
    • thumbnail with link to full with lightbox effect
    • Thumb only
    • Full size only
    • Link to thumb
    • Link to full size
    • float right - full size
    • float left - full size
    • float right - thumbnail with link to full
    • float left - thumbnail with link to full
    • a series of photos with lightbox effect--be sure to give the series a name below and give each one in the series the same name

    That was fun.

    I admit I'm still fond of it, too.
