Images disappearing (deleted) for unknown reason
I've almost finished my first Perch build, a little store using the Paypal Shop App, blog, members and other things. Working 99% awesome. The dev site is ready to hand over to the owner so she can add real content to replace the test content.
But I can't hand over while this mysterious image deletion / clean-up process is claiming the life of innocent product JPEGs, seemingly at random, at odd times. I can't replicate the issue on demand. Things might be fine for a week, then another image bites the dust for no apparent reason.
I have not been messing with the assets at all manually on the server, or doing anything out of the ordinary.
The asset clearing process is removing product images that are published and live on the site, leaving broken image holes on homepage slideshows, feature areas and on the product details pages.
If my only hope for now is a workaround, I'll take it. Can someone please remind me how to make a permanent config change to keep images as library assets? I recall reading a post on this forum weeks ago when I first had the trouble, but can't find it.
I like the idea of Perch cleaning up unused assets, but there's obviously a glitch where it sometimes cleans assets still in use. Perhaps it's a Paypal Shop App thing. I do look forward to using the new shop app for a future build, but for now just want to wrap this one up.
Here's my health check if that helps.
