NextGen Gallery can't create thumbnails (2 posts)

    I just created a new gallery, and uploaded some pictures into it. The pictures were uploaded fine, but there are no thumbnails created. When I tried to "create new thumbnails" it gave me the following error message:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 12582912 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1276 bytes) in /hermes/web09b/b96/pow.domainname/htdocs/blog/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/lib/thumbnail.inc.php on line 904

    Sometimes I can create a thumbnail if I choose just one picture.

    Thanks!

    Here's the fix. It's so easy that I wonder why Alex hasn't mentioned it. Ya think he doesn't know?

    Anyway, check this out.

    The pertinent part is this:

    This issue can be resolved by increasing the memory usage allocation at a per-plugin level for PHP applications that require more grunt than others. It’s quick and easy!

    1. Open an FTP connection to your root WordPress directory
    2. Open /wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/lib/gd.thumbnail.inc.php with your favourite text editor (e.g. UltraEdit, etc.)
    3. On line #168 un-comment (remove the //) from before @ini_set('memory_limit', '128M');
    4. Save and upload changes
    5. Delete image/s that failed to generate a thumbnail and re-upload using NextGEN Gallery’s standard Upload Images feature

    I don't know if this is still the case (it's from Dec. 2008), but the guy who posted the fix also said this:

    Hey Graham, it’s an oldie but a goodie! Just make sure you re-apply the fix after auto-updating NextGEN Gallery… plugin function overrides at a WordPress install level is still only a dream.
