I am getting a blank page when calling my Photoblog. What happened?
I posted an image and can see it in my admin images list but it is not shown in the front page
I am using a language containing special characters but they are not displayed correctly
How can I get rid of the "Thank you" page shown to visitors after a comment has been posted?
I installed Pixelpost but cannot open the main page, I get 404 Page not Found - error
If you see a blank page without showing anything on the start page it is most likely that you did some changes in the core code of Pixelpost. It can be also an addon which is not compatible to your version of Pixelpost.
If you are logged in as administrator, you can add "?errors" into the address field of your browser window and relaod the page (only Pixelpost > v1.6!). Usually you will now be confronted with an error message which explains the behaviour.
If a third party addon file is the reason, turn it off and ask the addon author for an update.
If a Pixelpost core file or a Pixelpost addon file was the baddy, download a clean Pixelpost installation package from http://www.pixelpost.org/releases/pixelpost_v1.7.0.zip and replace the corrupted files.
PHP and MySQL error messages are hidden by Pixelpost by default. But sometimes it may be helpful to see them when you are working on an Addon code for example.
You can either use the "?errors" or "?errorsall" as described above where "?errors" gives error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE) and "?errorsall" gives error_reporting(E_ALL).
If you are working on redirection pages this may not work for you, so go into the index.php of Pixelpost and change the error_reporting(0) in line 45 to error_reporting(E_ALL).
Don't forget to set that back again when you are finished! Otherwise your visitors might well be provided with a bunch of ugly warnings and notices.
If you see an image with thumbnail within your Images List in the Administrator Panel but it is not displayed as the newest photo in your blog, it is most probably posted on a future date. Check this in the Edit Image Page!
If you post a photo, you can set the date to the future. t This will be hidden to the public until the posting date and time. Only when logged in as Administrator you can see this future image.
You can use this feature for two things:
If there are strange chars in your Pixelpost front pages there can be several reasons. Please perform the following actions one by one:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
AddDefaultCharSet utf-8 AddCharSet utf-8 .shtml .htm .html .php
Open the template page where the comment form is in and add this line between the
<input type="hidden" name="withthankyou" value="no" />
When you have installed Pixelpost successfully, and you can log in in the admin section, but the main page, the start page of your Pixelpost cannot be loaded, brings the error: 404 page not found instead, then check the following:
Only one thing is missing: your server is not set to accept a file "index.php" as default page. Some servers accept only the following filetypes: index.html, index.htm or/and index.shtml
Is this the case, you should ask your hoster to add index.php to the default index-pages and your problem will be solved!
