Thanks for the patience in explaining that to me. I believe I understand it much better now and I'm much more comfortable with the solution. My concern was that, while I could change my cover directory, I wanted mythweb to be able to work for everyone else as well, many of whom would have left it in the default location. I appreciate you taking the time to help me understand.
