hi all, for those of you who have installed this plugin and got errors in the admins area, warning you about non-existent directories, I have found a solution. its a bit crude, but it works fine.
I'll explain my case, all directories are as I have them:
the problem is originated because, in my site, wordpress is not at the root of the site.
root folder is ----'/'
wordpress is in ---'/wp/'
images are in -----'/images'
those warnings appear because I did not properly configure wordpress to work in a different directory than the root folder. I learned about that when I had been blogging for some time, and since I linked to my images and files using paths like '../images/bla.jpg' changing would have been too much of a hassle.
so this plugin complains because, once installed, it gets the paths ok, like this, and it works:
$image_directory = "./../images/";
$image_url_dir = "./../images/";
BUT when you get in the admin area, wordpress complains, because in that case, the admin script expects the following directory to exist:
and since that does not exist, because I host the images in the previous level '/images/' the warnings appear, although the script works later. soooo...
the solution I have found to avoid moving wordpress around and having to re-check all of my links is to replicate the directory structure.
just creat the directory the admin expects to find, which would be '/wp/images/' and place a single image in there, and hop, no more complains. it does not interfere with the normal use of the plugin, since it takes the images from the real directory, '/images/'
hope this helps. cheers.
