Clear Walk through on mapping or .htaccess fix

    I recently added this plugin to my Buddypress site but the images are broken. I have read and read on how to fix it, but the fixes are not clear enough for someone as new as me in the world of coding of any type. I am really just a cut and paste kind of guy.

    Anyway for the pathing fix what exactly should I put in the base url because what is generated has not worked. When I go into my cpanel i can find where all the pictures are going, but they will just not show on the my site/network. I also have access to my .htaccess file but the solution for that is vague with the

    “# BEGIN rewrite rules for the BP Album+ plugin:

    Redirect 301 /blah/username/blah/public_html/ http://mydomain.com/

    # END

    makes no sense to me as in what do i put in for “blah” and “http://mydomain.com/”

    So anyway I am totally new at this sort of thing and a clear hand holding would be appreciated.

    Have you tried the FAQ on the wiki?

    http://code.google.com/p/buddypress-media/wiki/fixingBrokenImageFileURLs

    Also, version 0.1.8 has a base URL remapping feature that’s a 100% fix unless you’re using the MU version of WordPress.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for getting back to me!

    I am using MU setup of wordpress/buddypress.

    So is their a work around for that? What do you suggest.

    I know about FAQ wiki I am just too dense to understand what to put in the “blah” fields that sort of thing.

    Thanks again!

    Actually, the fix even works for MU sites, unless you are using a different subdomain for each user. It will work for `www.mysite.com/username/etc` but not for `http://www.username.mysite.com` .

    How is your MU install set up?

    Thanks!

    No I am using http://www.mysite.com/username/etc

    I just followed the simple MU instructions from WordPress.

    It seems that the album plugin creates (with corresponding new folders) this weird path where it duplicates new fold /home/controlpanelusername/public-html/wp-content/upload/album instead of just going into the already existing upload file path.

    Post a link to a page on your site where the image is not loading properly.

    BP-Media appears to be correctly processing the images and writing the URL for the stored image to the database. This problem is likely being caused by:

    1) Something wrong with your .htaccess file
    2) Something wrong with your directory permissions

    What should my directory permissions located and how should they be set?

    Is their a generic way the .htaccess files are suppose to look like?

    Yeah I know basic questions, but like I said I have only rudimentary understanding of these sorts of things so I just want it to be clear.
