[resolved] How to display EXIF data on Viewfinder Theme (6 posts)

    I can't display EXIF data on my photoblog...Does WordPress remove EXIF data during upload? I've tried using the popular plugins to display EXIF, with no success. I am beginning to wonder if the EXIF data is there in WordPress at all :)

    My Theme, Viewfinder supports EXIF, but I have never seen it displayed at all on my blog. I've copied photos on my blog and reviewed them in Adobe Bridge and the copied image still has the EXIF???

    Kindest Regards,
    Dave

    What plugins have you used? Several specifically say they display EXIF. Have you tried using one of those plug-ins with another theme just to test whether your theme is the problem (despite what it says). Also be sure that the plug in and the theme and your WP install are all current and compatible with each other.

    You might also want to check with the theme vendor -- as commercial themes are not generally supported here since people don't have access to the code, etc.

    You might also try uploading photos with FTP just to see if that makes any difference.

    You may also want to check that your PHP installation was configured with the exif option.
