How to select path for storing advert images

New parameters in images sections allow setting paths where uploaded DJ-Classifieds images will be stored. You can set paths for adverts, categories and profiles images.

paths_for_images

The uploaded images are split to different subfolders to avoid the problem with reaching a maximum number of files per directory.

A new folder is generated for every 1000 items. 

For example if path for advert is 

/images/djclassifieds/items/

then images for advert with id 215 will be stored in

/images/djclassifieds/items/0/

for advert with id 1230

/images/djclassifieds/items/1/

for advert with id 2130

/images/djclassifieds/items/2/

For profiles avatars and categories icons the same mechanism is implemented.

Changing path won't migrate already stored images; it will take effect only on newly uploaded images.

To move previously uploaded images to a new directory

  • move via some FTP client files from the old directory to the new one
  • Go to phpMyAdmin and find #__djcf_images table

modify_path

  • Modify the path column for the suitable type of advert.

For example, if you want to move advert images to folder '/images/DJ classifieds/items/' then run the query

"UPDATE #__djcf_images SET path = '/images/djclassifieds/items/' WHERE type = 'item';"
