Template image tag - Have to delete image in editor first

Hi Guys,

I'm having some trouble with adding image editing support in a template.

I can add the image tag fine and it shows up in the template when editing, but I have to delete it before I can add a new one. This is unlike the expected behaviour when using one of the Campaign Monitor default templates (template-widgets.html), with the new version of the tagging system.

The question is; How can I have the "choose image" functionality in the editor, without having a dummy image  that needs removing first?

Here is the code i'm using;

<repeater toc='true'>
                           <layout label="New Article">
                              <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" bgcolor="#ffffff">
                                 <tr>
                                    <td colspan="5">
                                       <h2><singleline label="Title">Title of article</singleline></h2>
                                       <multiline label="Description"><p>Description</p></multiline>
                                    </td>
                                 </tr>
                                 <tr>
                                    <td><img editable="true" label="Article image" alt="" width="330" src="images/gallery.png" /></td>
                                </tr>
                              </table>
                              <img src="images/hr.gif" width="329" height="1" />
                              <img src="images/smallspacer.gif" width="192" height="25" />
                              </layout>
                           </repeater>

Thanks,
Darren

Hi Darren, I understand this is a bit of annoying, but at present, you have to delete the dummy image in order to replace it. So the good news is that your code is spot-on, no troubles there at all. The bad - we're still looking at being able to add an image without a dummy one being their prior, or more likely, being able to replace an image without deleting it first.

Sorry about this - I'll certainly note internally that you would like to see this changed and will keep you posted if it happens in a future release. Thanks for your feedback here!

You should add a big fat note in the documentation explaining this. I spent an hour trying to edit my image, thanks to the forum I found the solution.
