Mapping Image URLs in Sightly Templates (AEM 6.1)

Avatar

Level 3

Hi Everyone,

I'm using /etc/map rules to remove /content/appname from requests. This works properly for incoming HTTP requests.

However, image tags rendered in Sightly templates are not rewritten. For example, if I have an image component at /content/app1/en/news/image, the src attributes in the image tag is not rewritten. It's still something like

<img src="/content/app1/en/news/image.img.jpg/123456789.jpg">

I would like it to be

<img src="/en/news/image.img.jpg/123456789.jpg">

I tried adding "img:src" to the set of mappings in Link Checker Transformer but this has no effect.

I assume I can create a custom rewriter/transformer to resolve this issue but it seems like this is something that should work automatically.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

David Frenkiel

Thanks for all the comments, everyone. I believe this is the solution:

I need to configure the Sling Rewriter as described here:

http://wcm.io/handler/url/rewriter.html

It's a special configuration that goes under /apps/{appName}/config/rewriter/{configName}.

The important part looks like this:

<generator-htmlparser jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" includeTags="[A,/A,IMG,AREA,FORM,BASE,LINK,SCRIPT,BODY,/BODY,META,SOURCE]"/>

Also note that that the {appName} part of the configuration path MUST be a single node.

You can't have something like /apps/company/app1/config/... Sling will ignore it.

Hi Jitendra,

Thanks for the suggestion.

I tried adding a few different mappings for /content/dam but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

For now I'm mapping /content/dam to itself so that it's effectively excluded from the mapping. So direct requests to images under /content/dam work correctly.

However, regardless of how I map /content/dam, image components continue to render with /content/app1 in the path.

Thanks,

David

@davidf46996755,

Before developing custom re-writer to solve this problem, I would suggest, you raise a day care ticket and ask why is it not working?.  Creating custom solution isn't the right move for every problem.

Hmmmm...

Maybe I'm mistaken. This doesn't seem to work without a custom transformer.
