Hi there, hopefully Alex will be available to see this post quickly!
I had a look back through quite a few posts for NextGEN, to see if I could sort this without duplicating a thread, but couldn't see anything. Also, I'm running out of time so I need to get this sorted as soon as possible!
I am using the plugin, (which is fantastic by the way) to develop photo galleries on a client site. He has one such gallery which he adds to daily, with a photo of the surf at his beach on that day. I have been creating this gallery manually for him up to now!
I have recreated the gallery with the plugin, no problem. I would now like the latest photo for each day to be show in the sidebar. The size however, needs to be larger than thumbnail size (it needs to be 307w x 173h). However, when I set the sidebar widget to display qty 1, Original Images, it just breaks the image that gets displayed in the sidebar. It works fine when I set it to display the thumbnail, but because I am upscaling, the quality is no good. Here are the two image links that are hard coded by the two methods:
widget set to display 'original image':
widget set to display 'thumbnail':
As you can see, the thumbnail path is what I would expect. I have no idea what is happening when I ask for the original.
In case it might be related, when I am uploading my images, using the plugin uploader, I am getting some possible error messages when converting to thumbnail, although it causes no problems for the gallery pages, they work fine. The actual thumbnail creation error message I am getting is:
# ID 185: A failure occurred
indicating that the error is '1'?, not sure if this is an error or not?
Hope someone can help, I have a really short timescale to go live with the site, & this is one of my last things to crack!
