JetPack - Subscribe To Blog - Images missing from emails (3 posts)

    Hi.

    I set up a new self install for a photography blog. I am using Twenty Eleven as a theme and have WP Lightbox 2 as a Lightbox plugin.

    When I set up the JetPack Subscribe to Blog module, I signed up for the notifications to see what they would look like to my readers. I noticed that none of the images are coming through in the emails, just a red cross. When I click on the link to where the image should be.. I get a 404 notice.

    The blog is at http://spnak.com. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could be doing wrong. It's driving me up the wall. I won't even start on getting thumbnails into an RSS feed, I had nightmares about that last night.

    Thanks for reading.

    Hi Paul,

    Have you figured your problem out yet? I have the same issue. Here's what I found...

    When there is an image in a post it's dropping the "/files/" directory from the URL.

    So I'm seeing: http://blog.hellolittleone.com/2012/01/hello_little_one_resolutions2012_organized.jpg

    When it should be:
    http://blog.hellolittleone.com/files/2012/01/hello_little_one_resolutions2012_organized.jpg

    ... dropping the "/files" part of the URL... RSS feed looks good however...

    Please let me know if you figure it out... will keep you posted also.

    Hi Simon,

    Through trial and error I got images to show up in the Subscribe emails by dropping the lightbox plugin. It could have been total coincidence as I haven't tempted fate in trying another plugin.

    Having said that, I notice that you aren't using a Lightbox at all, so maybe my fix was just coincidence.

    I would like to get a fix for this so that I can be confident in putting a lightbox back on my blog. Here's to keeping our fingers crossed for a solution.

    All The Best

    Paul
