Support » Plugin: Broadcast » Images being switched during broadcast

  • Resolved Chuck Munson


    We’ve been using Broadcast very successfully for a set of high traffic newspaper websites since February. We have three sites based on a multisite install, hosted by WP Engine. Editors typically use the dashboard of the most popular site to broadcast certain stories to all three sites.

    We’ve recently encountered a very odd issue, where the images in an article/post are changed during broadcast to the other sites. These aren’t the feature images, rather standard story images with captions that you’d find in any typical newspaper article. The broadcast version of these affected stories ens up with completely different image code pointing to older images in the media library.

    One common factor in this problem is that this happens only with stories from a specific reporter. It also only seems to happen with the broadcast version of the story to one of the two other newspapers.

    I would think that the broadcast programming would be very agnostic towards the code in the body of a post that’s being broadcast. It’s just standard WordPress embed code for a picture.

    Are the images attached to the post itself, or are they reused from other posts?

    If the former, then it should give Broadcast a chance to detect the images and copy them to the child blogs – and therefore giving BC the chance to translate their image IDs.

    If not, then we’ll have to figure out a way to detect the images in the post in order to broadcast / update the images and then translate their image IDs. Usually the use of the All Images add-on is enough.

    Thanks! I will bring this up with the editors and see if the process is part of the issue. I should also mention that we are using a CDN network. I’ve kept that in mind while investigating and researching this problem.

    The CDN could or could not be part of the problem. Preliminarily, I’m guessing the attachment status is the cause.

    Difficult to say without a debug dump. 🙂
