Camden migration scripts did not migrate image ids correctly
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:03:46 EDT
Description of problem: Camden migration scripts did not migrate
image ids correctly. The same image in the 5.2 box has a different id
in the migrated APLAWS+ box:
How reproducible: Always
IDs for images & all objects within WAF are installation specific & as
such it is not possible to maintain the same IDs across differnet
installs. What situation have you got that would require IDs to be the
same across both installs ? All styling should be using the ID
specified in the XML, not hardcoding it, so I can only think its
relevant if there were hardcoding <img> tags in the body text for some
That's exactly the case. There is no solution for this?
There isn't any solution - we don't support/recommend entering of
<img> tags directly into HTML for this exact reason. You'll have to
edit the HTML to fix the image ids.
I understand that. Just to get to the bottom of this ticket,
the "migrated" image repository in our production instance is a lot
smaller than the 5.2 one. Is that because the items that were loaded
into the image repository were then accessed from the html in the
body text instead of using the add image authoring step?
I understand that we may need to change the ids of the images if we
want to access them from the html in the body text but it seems that
we also have to re-upload more than half of the images as well.
If the images weren't referenced in the 'image' authoring step then
there is no way for the systme to tell that they were in use, so they
won't have been migrated. The issue wrt missing images has previously
been entered as bug 117196.
