Section 5.

I realize that I'm using an updated version of media, but since it looks as though this will be the new way of doing it, Assigning a style has changed. in the version of media 7.x-2.0. You now assign the style by admin>structure>file-types click on "manage file display" next to the file type, in our case "images" then click on "Full Content" link - upper right. then under image styles, select your style here, in the case of the book, "Large" Now to get back on track in the book, in step 5, select "content" instead of large. Not sure if this is the best way, but it worked for the sake of this book. reference: https://drupal.org/documentation/modules/image

In addition to signing up for access keys in "Step 3" a user will need to head to https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/advertising/api/detail/main.html and log in there to activate the advertising API which will allow their access keys to be work correctly. Otherwise, errors can occur in proceeding to "Step 4".

Table 6-3 should contain an additional column for "administrator" with all the node permissions indicated as "Checked". If the administrator permissions are not fixed, this can cause disagreement between the chapter hands-on activities and the text later on as certain options do not appear as expected and indicated by the author.

The list of permissions is missing a moderation flow from "Needs Staff Review" to "Published." It seems it should be checked for both editor and administrator.

Values for "Content: Path" do not mention checking "Use absolute link", without which the link on "Field: Image" will not be correct.

point 1.

I am using kindle the Location of the issue is 3747 1. To configure the display settings for the image file type, go to Configuration → Media → File Types (admin/config/ media/file-types). This screen looks very similar to the “Content types” screen you’re already familiar with. There is no File Types under Configuration → Media what I show is Media File system Tell Drupal where to store uploaded files and how they are accessed. File settings Configure allowed file extensions, default alt and title sources, and the file upload wizard. Image styles Configure styles that can be used for resizing or adjusting images on display. Media browser settings Configure the behavior and display of the media browser. Media WYSIWYG View Mode Configure view mode settings for files embedded into and displayed inside of the WYSIWYG editor. Image toolkit Choose which image toolkit to use if you have installed optional toolkits. This is ridiculous. I have reinstalled this chapter 4 times, tried various things. This last time I reinstalled using only the source code that was provided with no updates. I have requested help and nothing. I literally have spent full days trying to get this to work. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!
