Image Sizing Radio Buttons Greyed out (41 posts)

    Hi guys,

    anyone else got the issue where the buttons to choose 'thumbnail', 'medium' or 'large' are greyed out when adding an image with the beta? Tried trawling the forum and talking on irc channel (seems completely dead right now, got 1 reply suggesting people must be at work!) so thought i'd write here.

    Only 'Full Size Image (1394 x 2934)' is available and I can't select the others. Radio buttons for alignment do work and rest of the form seems fine.

    Thanks in advance!

    Will

    in my case, large is disabled in most images. it is enabled for images which are pretty large...

    in your case this is weird considering the image is pretty large and show have the versions available.

    I've tried this with several different sized images and on 4 different browsers - FF mac, safari Mac, FF pc and IE7 PC. Same result.. surprised it seems to be only me..

  4. What version of Flash are you using? Flash 10 is known to have shenanigans.

    Its not the flash part of it, its the bit below, so the image goes up fine its the part beneath alignment, where it says 'Thumbnail' , 'Medium' 'Large' 'Full Size' - that part of the form is html based, I even double checked this by switching to 'Browser uploader'.

    So its not a flash issue, cheers for the reply though.

    But you can get to the other two, so thats some progress. Is beta 2 still the latest? I havent seen info on a newer release yet - how do you get the nightly release?

    Ok scratch that I just signed up and got the nightly release - still can't choose thumb, medium or large. curses.

  9. I suspect it's based on the math of how big your image is, but I could be wrong. Try a very large image?

    I tried realllly large image - over 3000 x 2000, how does the math effect it? can it simply not parse the resizing so falls over? im testing with pics that ive posted in WP 2.3 onwards btw.

    Hi all,

    still getting nightly releases, still no solution to this, is anyone else having this issue? it seems i'm the only one! Is everyone able to upload images and select a size? could anyone post a screenshot so I know if its my server or not?

    Cheers

    Will

  12. The reason those options are grayed out is because no image is available in those sizes.

    This either means a thumbnail could not be produced at the time of upload, or the image itself is smaller than the grayed out sizes.

    This is not a 2.7 issue, this is by design and worked the same way in 2.6.

    So the fact that I was running 2.6.3 before the beta and am running 2.6 on various other instances of wordpress and don't encounter this issue using the same test images is irrelevant? seems.. a bit unlikely?

    Thanks for trying to help i'm just not sure where this leaves me or whether what you're saying there is right - although the fact no one else seems to have this issue could mean its just me!

    any other thoughts anyone?

    Upload a smaller image.

    I am using 2.7 and just had the same problem. I uploaded a JPEG that was 1500 x 2100 and the buttons were grayed out. I uploaded a new JPEG that was 400 x 560 and it create my thumbnail 150 x 150 as well as a medium-size image. The radio buttons for thumbnail, medium and full were then available, but large was not.

    I've had this same problem too. Even reducing the image down to 640 x 499 hasn't worked.

    Yes, I'm having the same problem. Never had an issue with this before 2.7. There are images in my Media Library that the buttons previously worked for, but now they don't.

    Something is amiss.

    This is driving me nuts. And NO it was not the same in 2.6

    I upload 800px wide images. In 2.5 I could insert a version that would be around 600wise, and linked to the full image. Now I have... thumb, med, large and full. Large is greyed out so I can either choose 300x200 med, or full 800pc images.

    C'mon, why does every new version of WP break things that worked fine before.... sigh

    OK I have something.

    2.6 did not actually have a large option. What happened is that when full size was selected it would limit the width. It seems that was an annoyance for some (understandably)

    In 2.7 full size has no constraints applied. This whole hassle would have been fixed if an option was simply added in the dashboard but it is an easy enough hack.

    You need to edit media.php (/wp-includes/media.php)

    Open it in a text editor and fine the follow code (line 65)

    // $size == 'full' has no constraint
    	else {
    		$max_width = $width;
    		$max_height = $height;
    	}

    Change the max to your desired max pixels. In my case I set max width and height to 600 pixels as shown below.

    // $size == 'full' has no constraint
    	else {
    		$max_width = 600;
    		$max_height = 600;
    	}

    I should mention that I'm no expert, but this did exactly what I wanted it to and I can simply use "Full Size" to insert an image yet it will max out at 600.

    I am having this same problem on my blog and a freshly setup blog. The radio buttons for Thumbnail, Medium, etc are greyed out? Must of changed after the upgrade? Anyone provide a solution yet?!

    Same problem here. I know I have GD enabled, because I've been using the Post Thumbs plugin on this server for over a year to make thumbnails. I tried using the now built-in thumbnail generation and everything is greyed except full size. I tried an exact dump of the site on localhost with WAMP and it worked fine, so it looks to me like it might be an incompatibility issue with a certain version of GD or something. I still can't figure out for certain what it actually is though. >.>

    I looked around and experimented a bit, which has brought me to the conclusion that the problem is with version 8.8 of the Podpress plugin. I made a few changes to some of the podpress files and now it works. You can download it at my blog here;

    Keep in mind that this is an unofficial build and I have no time or intention of supporting it.

    It looks as though WordPress has some issues with PHP4. Many hosts still seem to default to PHP4 (including mine), so I would recommend adding AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php to you .htaccess file.

    I added that and can suddenly upload just about any image size I'd ever want to...before It'd start crashing at about 1000x1000.

    // $size == 'full' has no constraint
    else {
    $max_width = $width;
    $max_height = $height;
    }

    Change the max to your desired max pixels. In my case I set max width and height to 600 pixels as shown below.

    // $size == 'full' has no constraint
    else {
    $max_width = 600;
    $max_height = 600;
    }

    tried this and I'm still stuck with greyed out radio buttons. WP do you have a fix for this?

    They never installed a graphics library on the server... just added GD via Ubuntu and works fine now!

    thank you.

    CyruzDraxs: thanks for your post (i already had gd installed). downloaded your file and it works again. i hope you sent a note to the podpress people ... if you would like, tell us here what you had to modify ...
