View Full Version : Explanation text not showing
03-26-2006, 01:02 AM
When I upload a photo, I usually write a little about the photo. The text used to show up, but now it doesn't. I haven't changed anything and I'm not sure what's happened or where to start looking.
Anyone have any ideas.

weird...when you go to edit the image in the admin does it show up there?
03-26-2006, 01:14 AM
Yes it shows up in admin. I really don't know when it started happening, I was browsing my photos this evening, and realized one photo I knew I'd written about had nothing underneath the heading.

try another template and see if it shows up...
in the templates/light/ directory of your files check the image_template.html and see if there is anything between the td tags for image notes
there should be a <IMAGE_NOTES> tag in place there

It's missing whatever template I choose. And the image tag is present.
Maybe somehow it is connected with PHP 5.1.2 which is present at your server? Did your ISP make any software/server update last time?
03-26-2006, 01:56 PM
they update as and when necessary, but I can't see how that would effect just the photo text.
03-26-2006, 05:21 PM
if the tag is in the template file and nothing is rendering out on the server...there is def some sort of clash with between the two.
You should see when the last time things were updated on the server and if it is when your text stopped showing up.

please upload the image_template.html of the template which you use again to your server
I checked the html-validity of your installation and there are some errors,
the most important error would be in my imagination that end-tag of a div is omitted
I do not think that the original template has these errors and so it could help to re-upload the image_template.html again...
just my 5 cents..

Fixed validations errors, Div tag missing from the footer and img close tag didn't have a space at the end.
Text is still not displaying

but this is no php code, this is HTML ;=)
I suggest to take out that counter stat script for a try. it could be that it redirects to the counter hoster before the page is loaded completely...
take out this and try again
to find a reason for a problem you must strip down the page step by step..

Took out the stat counter, and the image title I put in myself. Tried another template which I haven't done any modifications to and still it's not showing up. I also took out camera exif, and that didn't work either :confused:

back to the php5 issue (if you have it.. you never gave a clear answer) - so many changes were made around pixelpost in regard to php5 that updating to 1.5beta if you haven't already could be a possible solution - not sure on that one though as i've never seen this problem before.

Ok, check the php version. when I first installed PP my host was using php 5.0.4 (checked back on an old post of mine where I was having problems first installing) and now checking the general info they've upgraded to 5.1.2.
sorry I didn't answer before, I was hoping it was something simple in the template, but it doesn't look that way.
I haven't upgraded to 1.5 beta, still using 1.4.3 - I don't know where to go from here.
So you think upgrading to 1.5 could quite possibly solve the problem?
thanks for all the help so far.

just sent off an e-amil to my host's tech department, see if they can figure out what the problem is. They've been pretty good in the past with help. When I upload a photo I usually write a few lines of text to go with it, that text is no longer showing up. Can't say I can give you an accurate time as to when this started because I didn't notice, some one else did. I haven't done anything to the installation, I just upload photos. Templates are the original, nothing added.
I've had people try and help in the pixel post forum, but they're at a loss having never encountered the problem before. They've suggested it could quite possible have quit working after the php upgrade from php 5.0.4 to php 5.1.2? Not familiar with php so I wouldn't know where to start. Could you take a look please, and let me know what other information you might need from me. My pixel post installation is timacoly.com
From my host:
This could be the problem, PHP is known for having strange/major
functionality change in point releases. Unfortunately we cannot help
troubleshoot this. If you want to you can try compiling the previous
version and seeing if it fixes the problem:
If you find a bug that is fixed in a newer revision of PHP please let
know and we can look in to upgrading.
Weren't so helpful this time

I uploaded a fresh install (latest beta version) to another directory (http://timacoly.com/jpeg/) and re uploaded all the photos. A lot of work, but now my photo explanations are working.
Big thanks to all those who tried to help.

php 5.1 and php 4.4.1 have problem with old markup functions in Pixelpost 1.4.x. This is fixed in 1.5
