View Full Version : Thumbs stopped working...
11-12-2005, 02:17 PM
Using the brilliant Pixelpost 1.4.2; but for some weird reason it stopped creating thumbs. My jpg was edited in PS CS2 and saved for web as jpg. The picture shows up fine; but no thumb has been created. Instead pp shows a link with the name of the picture both in the archive and the bottom thumb navigation. And there's no thumb-file on the web server either. So it appears that no thumb has been created in the first place.

the usual question:
if it worked before, what has changed?
something at the server?
could it be that there is no more webspace?
are there any restrictions at the server now?
I checked, GD LIB is there at your server, installed with JPG-Support...
did this happen with only one image or with more images?
do you see what I see?
Look at the image:
this image has no file-extension !!!!
it must be images/20051112163339_autumn7.jpg
but it is not! So try to re-upload the image with file-extension!

Well, something did change... I just got a new Apple PowerBook instead of my IBM ThinkPad. And MacOS X doesn't need the file extensions, so I don't add them...
My mistake; but thanks for spotting it! It works just fine now that I've added the file extension...:)

Congratulation to the new Powerbook! And to get life returning to your photoblog!
And please don't forget the extensions in future, GD-Lib needs them!

I'm having this same problem. I do have the JPG extension. What has changed for me is the location of my pixelpost files. They are now in a new folder in my site. (alternatr domain) Seems like the new files I am Queing up don't show the thumb and instead show the title. I've got the permissions all checked...what else can it be?

please, show the information which is supported in Admin/info-section
when you moved the installation, did you change the image-path etc.?
are the folders writable
always the same questions... show us the info please

Guessed imagepath: /home/virtual/site472/fst/var/www/html/images/
Configured Imagepath /home/virtual/site472/fst/var/www/html//itcaughtmyeye.com/images/
Image Directory: OK - Can we write to the directory? YES.
Thumbnails Directory: OK - Can we write to the directory? YES.
Language Directory: OK
Addons Directory: OK
Includes Directory: OK
Templates Directory: OK
The file shows up fine but if I check the archives page or the images in the admin page...it's the name of the file and a whit box respectively.
D**n, I think I just saw the problem. 2 forward slashes before the new directory. Maybe, let me check.

That wasn't it. Here's the error I get when I try to regenerate the thumbnails.
Warning: imagejpeg(): Unable to access ../thumbnails/thumb_20051113145648_anemone.jpg in /home/virtual/site472/fst/var/www/html/itcaughtmyeye.com/includes/functions.php on line 92

do you have jpg support for your gd lib? it will tell you if you do on your general info page.
11-13-2005, 10:44 PM
It's the same host (MT) I just changed folder location. Everything else is working normal except the darn TNs.
Here's what it says:
GD-lib bundled (2.0.28 compatible) with JPEG support
Server software Apache/2.0.46 (Red Hat)
Take a look at the Archives to see what I mean.
Did you drop chmod 777 on thumbnails dir??

My host was upgrading over the weekend to php 4.4.1.
There reply: It appears this is a new bug introduced in php 4.4.1. The bug is documented at http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=35071
They seem to have fixed this, but have not made an offical release yet. In the meantime, the solution is to 'touch' the file prior to the 'imagejpeg' call.
As a courtesy, I have modified includes/functions.php to implement this fix. The original, unmodified version has been renamed to functions.old.php."
This should help others w/the same problem.
