The media browser makes out of a dynamic scource a fixed path and I would like to know, if there is any workaround for this.
In several posts here and else are discussions about dynamic Media Sources. The easiest way to do this should be the usage of “MIGx” - so they say. Especially the Snippet “migxResourceMediaPath” is the friend and should be placed in the URL fields of media sources like this (as an example):
Result (so they say): The Snippet should dynamically insert individual source paths depending on the current resource-ID. By switching between different resources, the media browser should then automatically point to the reffering/different image folder.
How it works:
What MIGx does is not a miracle: it just returns a path - that’s all! This could also be realized with other techniques like Chunks, TV’s or own, crazy snippets - why not.
Why I say “should”:
The above described functionality works only so fare, as you don’t save any files into such “dynamic” Folder. Since you did that, the mediabrowser converts the placeholder within the URL into a
fixed path - good bye dynamics!
The (!)-Command hase no effect and it dosn’t matter if you use MIGx, Chunks, TVs, Snippets or what ever - they all will become fixed path after a while!
Is there a trick, to prevent this behavior of the media browser??
Thanks in advance for your replay (and please excuse my uggly english).
Have a nice day - and greetings from Dresden (Saxonia, Germany):
