I am trying to test accessing images directly into Tridion from an external source, so I am trying to get ECL's working on my dev server but have hit an issue. As a test I am using the Flickr ECL from the Tridion site.
Everything works well. The stub area is created and I can see images in the Flickr area. It is all good until I publish the page.
The component is effectively an article with header and a RTF for paragraphs.
If I use a Hyperlink and specify Component and pick the image from the ECL within the RTF, it resolves it, so when I click the link, it shows me the picture.
If I use the Image button and select from the ECL within the RTF, it does not resolve and leaves it as a
Tridion Support have stated that the code (
<a> tag and
<img> tag) are correct, but cannot explain why not getting resolved in both cases.
I am using the standard Get and Resolve TBB's that came with the install.
The image source is having
/media/images/ added to the front of the
.ecl link. This means to me that it thinks it is an image and not an ECL. I have placed the Get / Resolve TBB before and after the Default Finish Actions in my Component Template to no avail.
I have tried to implement the ECL Template Building Block that is on the Tridion site but don't fully understand how to get it installed into Tridion once built. This is an area I am currently lacking knowledge.
Does anyone have anything that might help me?
