I am reposting this previous topic, as I am having a really hard time with it and I would very much appreciate any help. But I am having the same problem as Lee in the previous post, where an image will not display on the page. No errors are generated when the page loads, other than the “image not found” icon.
It seems as if the __media route is not being “translated” properly. When I view source on the page, the img src for the image is simply . Trying to access that URL directly results in a 404 error. If I hard-code the URL, such as https://mysite.com/modules_app/contentbox-custom/_content/myImage.jpg, then the image displays fine.
Note that the media manager itself works fine as far as uploading images, showing what is in the folder, and so on. But trying to insert an image will result in the same “image not found” behavior, even in the preview function of the media manager.
I am using vanilla ACF 2016, IIS 8.5 on Windows Server 2012, ContentBox 4.2.1. I have tried editing / adding routes and mappings in ContentBox and ColdBox. I have tried CF mappings, and even rewrite rules on IIS. Nothing defeats __media!
Let me know if I can provide any further information! Thank you very much!
