I have created a Xampp powered local wordpress install. This will be used at my work as a sort of "intranet" using LAN - I have no intentions of deploying it on a server, as it is not required by what we need it for.
Right now, all computers type in the IP address to the hosting computer ie. 192.168.x.xx:80/wordpress -- this works great, however, the images do not appear - I believe this is because the other computers are looking for http://localhost:80/wordpress/wp-content../img.jpg
Of course this confuses the computer because it thinks it's the localhost. Is there a way I can force the items in the media library to be relative paths? This would also have to automatically make new uploads relative as well. I know this isn't necessary desired in most circumstances, but I would need it for this one.
I have changes the site URL to the IP of the computer, but this causes the host computer to be unable to log in, and I don't want to have my co-workers have to do this each time we switch the host computer. Thanks all for looking, I appreciate any ideas or answers.
