I have DOM+Uploadify+ImageGalery installed on my site. The gallery shows images propertly, but when i show alist of galleries, i can see the Cover Images. Or when i change delete <if CoverImage> in AlbumList, i can see some Cover Images.

So, I have two problems.
When I have code

<% if CoverImage %>
					<% control FormattedCoverImage %>
						<img src="$CoverImage">
					<% end_control %>
				<% else %>
					<span class="no-image"></span>
				<% end_if %>

I can't see Cover Images. In the codeit give me no-image class. When I delete the requirement, i CAN see the CoverImage.

In some galleries i can set CoverImage. But in the others I set it, save it and when I refresh it, it show me no-CoverImage. I don't know if I make some mistakes, or if it's something wrong.

FormattedCoverImage() returns an Image object, so you want $URL in that src attribute.
