    Hi philip, delete the file .downloads in the gallery directory manually by ftp or shell... The gallery only handles image files... Thats why it's saying that error (I will note the error message so i can handle it)...

    Great! That fixed the error ... the thumbnail(s) are very small - barely visible ... any idea what I may have done wrong?

    That's strange. Is your setting ok in the optionsmenu (width of thumbnails)?

    Dan, is this correct for the html? => wp-content/gallery//.thumbs/00250001.JPG

    Twice a slash doesn't seem to be wright, or is it? On my testpage (http://www.spoenk.nl/wordpress-beta/gallery.php) this is the same but working ok.

    Philip: You can edit the size of the thumbnails in options -> gallery in the administration...

    Moxie: Thats not a problem for any webserver, but that should be corrected... i will fix that bug too :D

    Dan: The thumbnail size is set to 120 (the default).

    Could you go and look inside your gallerydirectory? Did you mistakenly delete the .thumbs directories? (these are hidden directories by default)

    Moxie: There is a .thumbs directory, although it has only one thumbnail in the folder. I have 20+ images in the gallery folder.

    OK. Made some progress...as I mentioned, there was only (1) thumbnail in the .thumbs directory. I realized that the filename was image.JPG.PNG --- but the source was looking for .JPG. So, renaming the thumbnail fixed the problem.
    Next, how do tell Rum Gallery to create the thumnails? How do I remove the border --- change CSS? I'll be looking at it...

    Looking at the example of philipR is seems as if you've already changed the 'width' to 'largest' side Dan?

    Philip, yes, the border can be changed by

    div.imgrapper img {
    border:none;
    }

    Sure. Sorry for the late reply. Here's a link http://pickardguitars.com/gallery/sp_index.php?file=./Gallery%201/00250004.JPG

    Maybe wrong image format?
    I've been playing around with SPG also, can RUM Gallery have multiple galleries?

    Thanks Moxie for the CSS!!

    philipr what exactly do you mean with multiple galleries?

    Btw. what exactly are you guys doing with the guitars? Im a guitarist myself :)

    RummandDan: I thought we would have a single menu item (not built yet) that will go directly to the gallery. This would be the main gallery, but have a gallery per guitar. Similar to SPG... if you go to the site now, SPG is activated, but I really liked the way you set it up and would rather use Rum Gallery if we can get the thumbnail issue resolved.
    I'm a Senior .NET developer trying to build a site for my Classical guitar teacher that he can update himself. I ran accross WP and thought it would be a good solution. Anyway, his real passion is building guitars and the site is to promote the guitars he builds. The pictures don't do them justice - they sound unbelievable.

    Dan, if I would want some thumbs to make manually, for instance because the proportions of the image doesn't match the others, how would I do that? Would I download and alter the already made thumbnail, modify it and upload again into the .thumbs directory? Would this cause problems with this plugin?

    Thats exactly what you would do, and no, only if you "reupload" that exact picture, the thumbnail will be overwritten otherwise it wouldnt be a problem at all...

    Philip, yeah you could just create the directories in the root at the backend, and create subfolder for those beneath... (for the root galleries to be shown, you need at least one picture in the directory, cause it uses the picture as a thumbnail for the "gallery").

    Im a .NET programmer by profession too myself. :) What are the pricerange of the guitars your teacher is building?

    Hi Philip, It looks like it cant create the .thumbs directory... Is it running on a windows or a *nix server ?

    It's hosted at powweb (linux). Should I create the folder manually?

    No it should do so by itself philip... Try creating a sub directory in the administration interface... And upload pictures to that directory...

    Not sure I understand...I don't have an option to create a sub directory in the WP admin interface.

    Where you upload your pictures, there should be a box called "Create directory"... to create sub albums...

    Dan: OK. I'm stupid. I have been uploading the images via ftp, which I just realized is wrong!! Ok. Uploaded images under Manage and what do you know, it worked!!! I didn't see Gallery under Manage ---

    Also, talked with Jason - Current price of his guiars is 2500.00 us dollars. If you want more information, email him using the contact form on the site.

    Philip batch import via ftp is possible too... then you just upload the files to /wordpress_root_dir/wp-content/ftp-gallery, and under manage -> gallery you will be introduced to the import feature at the top of the page... :)
