    Running ImageGen on localhost with port number?


    I have purchased a license for ImageGen Professional, but the registered domain is the clients domain so it's not working while I'm developing their site.

    But on my development machine I run the web on localhost, but there's a port number as well since I work with many different sites on the same machine. When I try to make the images scale above 800 pixels (which should be possible when running the pro version or when developing on localhost) it won't work. Could this be because I'm using a port number, like this:


    Is there a way to solve this? It would be very frustrating to have to upload the site to the clients live server every time I need to test the functionality of ImageGen Professional. Not only because it's bad practice to use the live server for testing but also because we use build scripts so I would have to build the site every time before I upload it.

    Hi, Thomas,

    ImageGen Professional is always active on localhost no matter what the port number (I do this all the time with . I suspect the reason you can't resize larger than 800px is because of the settings in the /config/imagegen.config file that prevent it (look in the class="default" section). Probably you just need to get the /config/imagegen.config file from the live server so that both it and your development site are running with the same settings.

    Hi Doug!

    Thanks for the ultra swift reply!

    I have altered the default section in imageGen.config to reflect my needs, like this:

     <Class Name="default" OverridesQueryString="true">

    But this config-file is only present on localhost at the moment. The reason is that there is an old web (not an Umbraco site) on the clients domain at the moment. We're doing a remake of that site and I don't have FTP access to the live server yet.
