[Plugin: WP Post Thumnail] (23 posts)

    Hello,

    I've designed a theme for a client that uses WP Post Thumbnail but ran into a problem transferring it from my development environment to the server.

    For reference, the plugin <http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-post-thumbnail/> uploads an image an allows you to decide what area of it will be used as a thumbnail for the front page.

    Every time I upload an image it tells me the upload was successful but doesn't load the thumbnail editor, nor is the file uploaded to the directory.

    I think it has to do with permission but I'm not good enough at php to figure it out. Please help.

    Thank you

    Have you checked the CHMOD of the directories?

    I'm having the same exact problem as Itcanuck. And uploads folder is Chomd to 777. It says picture uploaded successfully. But no options to crop and uploads directory is empty. I uploaded the wppt.xml to default theme directory as well.

    Same problem here, any chance this will be resolved in the near feature? I'm about to launch a new website in january and this is one of the plugins I really would love to use!

    I had the same problem after moving my WordPress installation from localhost to my real site.
    I fixed it by emptying wppt_general_options in the prefix_options table.

    I'm having this problem too. I'd like to:

    fixed it by emptying wppt_general_options in the prefix_options tabl

    as Repsaj_Nav suggested, but I can't find the wppt_general_options. Or anything marked wppt, or anything that looks like it goes with this plugin. I'm assuming I could get to it using PHPMyAdmin, cracking open the database.

    What am I missing? i'd appreciate any specifics!

    Ah, the information I needed is on the developer's blog, in the comments:
    http://www.seoadsensethemes.com/wp-post-thumbnail-wordpress-plugin/

    "Paul" on a Jan 6 comment said:

    WP 2.7 working…

    I was able to get the plugin to work in WP 2.7 by deleting the wppt_* options directly from the database. That is to say:

    1.) Use something like “phpmyadmin” to connect directly to your database server.

    2.) Navigate to the database for your installation and find the “options” table.

    3.) That table has a hundred or so entries. You can just “Browse” through the table for the 2 or 3 that begin with “wppt_”[something]. Or (if you have thousands of entries) you could do a Search and put in “option_name like ‘wppt_%’” as your search criteria.

    4.) Delete those options that begin with “wppt_”.

    After I did this, the next time I tried to upload an image with wppt it worked just fine.

    [I noticed that even after disabling the plugin and re-enabling it, my wppt options in the database were still those from an earlier installation. My suspicion was that maybe WP changed the way it stores array data in going from WP 2.6 to 2.7? And that disabling the WPPT plugin apparently doesn't erase the option arrays stored in the database? I don't know... but this worked for me :->]

    I've tried all that been said above but no way, it doesn't work. It works fine in localhost but not after moving to the server. Did you find a solution?

    This plugin worked fine for me on 2.7, and now it suddenly doesn't. I don't think the developer is still working on it though so might be worth giving up and jumping to something else. :(

    What are we going to jump to?

    Psot-thumb is crap, and this plugin is crap. You'd think given the popularity of WordPress that these so called "plugin developers" would design something that works. We can't even hack the code to correct it.....if you find something that works post back. I'll do the same.

    cheers,

    how about coding it yourself then, doctorcilantro.
    plenty of "post attachment" or "post image" functions being displayed here.

    You could also pay one of these so called plugin developers to create something specially for you, instead of releasing "general" crap that does not work on your setup.

    it's strange because the plugin working good on wp 2.7 without any modify.

    do you have add the file wppt.xml in the theme folder ?

    Developers of free plugins still have some responsibility to either pull their "crap" down off the web, or take one minute to tune in to the compatibility as new versions of WP are developed. It's a common courtesy, rather than wasting people's time. Let me go learn .php and I'll get back to you (give me a break).

    While I agree that many plugins lack the polish that could make them dead simple to use, there are a couple of things to consider; 1) You get what you pay for, and 2) The FYI on this particular plugin is listed as Compatible up to: 2.6.2. It's compatibility in 2.7.x is not guaranteed.

    Hi People, I've also come across a few problems when installing this plugin, but that was mostly when running on an old PHP installation. I have to say it's pretty well-coded and thought through actually. The thing is that WP Post Thumbnail requires a few things from your PHP server (Like a recent PHP install and GD support), and requires that your folders are CHMOD-ed the right way. I actually love the fact that I can create multiple thumbnails per post through an XML file. The plugin doesn't collide with running JQuery libraries, and don't forget it is still in version 0.1. Version 0.2 looks very promising actually.

    Other than that I wish to add: If you don't like the PHP "crap - plugins", don't use them. Or even better, make them work the way you want to, solve the bugs and help improve it.

    how exactly do you get the thumbnails to show up in the post? I see the preset1 thumb on the main blog page but I'm not sure how to implement them within the post.

    Once you get the thumbnail in the post, can you click on it to enlarge it?

    Does anyone know if there is a way to stop the plugin from optimizing the images? I'd love to use this (nice and simple for clients) but even when I set the jpeg quality parameter to 100 the final images quality is still compromised.

    eggnog, I've found that to get a reasonable result you have to give the plugin high quality jpegs to work with, for example 90%-100% compression only in Photoshop save to web, and then set the compression level of the plugin to 90%.

    Alternatively you can use pngs, which it seems to work much better with, but you have to use PNG-8s, as it doesn't seem to support the transparency of PNG-24.
