Slider images broken after importing standalone websites to network.

  • Hello everybody,

    after a lot of thinking, I’ve decided to import my standalone websites into wordpress network using backupbuddy. Everything went quick and smooth, posts, pages, theme settings, logo… everything is perfect – except images in the slider 🙁

    You can see one of this websites over here:

    http://consultancy.globelawgroup.net/

    Slider show icons for broken images, and when you actually right click that broken image and click open image in new tab, you will get something like this:

    http://consultancy.globelawgroup.net/http:/consultancy.globelawgroup.net/files/2012/10/latinamerica.jpg

    So, basically something is adding website url before an image url and that makes it broken.

    When I go to widget settings(this theme add slider images through widgets), everything looks good – correct url etc.

    Any thoughts ?

    Thanks,
    Stefan

  • Is your slider using TimThumb?

    Hi Ipstenu, thanks for your answer.

    It is possible that this have something to do with thumbs, because I see thumbs problems here also:

    How could I check if slider of this theme is using TimThumb ?

    http://research.globelawgroup.net/category/projects/ shows images, they’re just scaled wrong, so that means it’s probably not your .htaccess (yay!)

    http://consultancy.globelawgroup.net/ seems to be working now though…

    When you say it works, you mean slider, right ? Well, I fixed it temporary, but I would like to find the real cause. As something is adding full web url before img links(for sliders), I’ve just changed all urls in widgets. For example, from

    http:/consultancy.globelawgroup.net/files/2012/10/latinamerica.jpg

    to

    files/2012/10/latinamerica.jpg

    Okay, this URL is 100% correct:

    http:/consultancy.globelawgroup.net/files/2012/10/latinamerica.jpg

    THIS URL is what you said it was before:

    http://consultancy.globelawgroup.net/http:/consultancy.globelawgroup.net/files/....

    So ‘where’ are you editing the image URLs? 🙂

    I’m editing URLs in theme widgets. It is RT-THEME Slider Widget. Every slider picture have it’s own widget. Before I moved to multisite, I was adding absolute URLs, now I must add relative URLs because something is adding full root URL 🙂

    You need to ask RT about this, I’m afraid 🙁 It’s something they’re doing wrong if they can’t auto-detect the upload path.
