Stack Embed from

(Dmitry) #1

Dear gurus! Firstly, forgive my English.
I just can not configure the Embed stack. I’m trying to create a website with lots of pictures (these are illustrations of children’s books that I was preparing for printing) and they are quite large. Here is the sequence of my actions.

  1. In the RW project (3.5.2), I create a new Stacks page.
  2. In the specified field, I put the Embed stack.
  3. In the Transmit program, I create the Assets folder and load several files into it.
  4. I set permissions on the folder - 755, on files - 644.
  5. In the Embed stack settings, I select “Images From A Directory” and specify the path to the folder that Transmit gave me “ftp: //XXX.XX.XXX.XX//
  6. I select the png format and try to publish it all.
  7. Here is the answer of the published site “Directory” ftp: //XXX.XX.XXX.XX//’ not found! "
  8. Tell me, please, how the path to the repository should look. And maybe I’m still doing something wrong. Correct me, please.
  9. With sincere respect!

Not sure where you’re getting that path name. Looking at your file directory it appears that you have a www directory inside the main directory, and the assets folder is inside that.
The file path you’ve given shouldn’t have to sets of double slashes //. Try dropping all the XXX.XX.XXX stuff and start with the second set of double slashes.

Thank you for answering me. - this is the way that Transmit gives me.
How do I convert it to insert into the stack settings?

the “www” is your main web root directory… you would point beginning with /assets/ being your first folder. Assuming your stack is asking for a URL the path would be

Whatever Transmit gives you will be wrong. This needs to be a relative path, not an absolute path. A relative path never starts https://, http:// or ftp://.

Thank you very much for your time.
But something I can not do :frowning:
I decided to do everything from the beginning.

  1. Created on the provider’s website a new subdomain “
  2. In the program “RW” created a new project with the page “Stacks”
  3. In the “General - Advanced - Default Extension” settings, I installed “php”


  1. The “Page Inspector” tab was configured as follows:


  1. Accordingly, in the settings “Embed” prescribed the path:

  1. The following screenshot shows the structure of the folders on the provider’s website:

  1. On the “Edit / Preview” page this did not cause absolutely no response :frowning:
    And after the publication I have:

Try it with just: images/

Wow! It worked!
True, every image has a signature:
Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/u172786/ on line 102
Thank you! I’ll cut further :slight_smile:
Once again, accept my sincere thanks. You are best!
