Description

Following up on http://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/1134

While trying to use an image for a blog post on the featured widget on the homepage, I ran into the following problems:

1. The image selected automatically by the script was too large. If you look at the homepage now, all content is pushed down too far on the page.
-- To solve this, I would love to see either a way of resizing the image OR a way of saying "no, I don't want to use an image"

2. Using an image URl http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/files/member11.jpg doesn't work -- the image shows up as a broken embed

3. Using an image from the image gallery (same image) also doesn't work -- image shows up as a broken embed.

In the near term, I'd love to have the "no image" option to serve as a quick solution to the layout issue.

Can you open these as separate tickets? I'm wary of implementing any of them in the short term, but implementing all of them will require me to rewrite most of the plugin, and take a few days' work.

If you urgently need a "no image" option, I will try to squeeze it into a bugfix release.

Dom, the plugin in question is /wp-content/plugins/cac-featured-content/. It's responsible for the Featured widget, which appears in the home-page-sidebar widget sidebar http://local.cicdev.com/wp-admin/widgets.php

Updated the estimated time.

I've just marked #1685 as a blocker for this ticket. Dom, I'm going to send you an email with some backstory.

  • Target version deleted (1.4)

Closing in favor of #1871. Dom, feel free to check your widget against this ticket, though I'm pretty sure the issues described here are no longer relevant.

I think the re-write addresses this and I was hoping to get testing feedback on this particular problem from cdev. I "think" it works in my local env but remember I never bothered to properly setup the uploads dir on my machine. So every now and then I get broken image links even when everything is operating properly. :-)

Agreed -- seems to work well.
