[resolved] Slider Images don't work (5 posts)

    This issue in the past normally wouldn't be a wordpress issue, but here is what is happening. I have http://poetry.mymorningstory.com running off of Swift Themes 5.7 and have also tried the latest Arras Theme. Both themes are using the new guidelines for adding images which gets rid of TimThumbs. ( No I really don't know what that means ) However, I know its a lot trickier to get images to show up, and if I actually did it to my main site, I might be sitting there for days.

    Anyways :)

    Recently, I had issues getting my CSS and Buddypress Avatars to show up in poetry.mymorningstory.com and contacted hostgator. They fixed the problem by changing the HTACCESS file to read:

    #RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L] <-Old
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-content/uploads/$1 [L] <-New

    However, in doing this it seems that the site no longer recognizes featured images for the slider on my site.

    Is there a way I can have both lines of code in my htaccess file to work simultaneously? or something?

    anwyays, I wanted to contact wordpress before I did anything dumb :)

    Thx a lot.

    Remember how in the other thread I said by them doing that they will have probably caused other issues?

    this would be that time.

    Put it back the way it was, see if it fixes that issue. (yes, it will knock out the other stuff).

    lol, I just changed it back to the other way, and the CSS still comes in fine now, and the images show up properly.. but ofcourse the Buddypress Avatars are no longer working.

    Why can't they all just work!!

    I'm thinking that the only issue at this point is the buddypress images;

    Any ideas? to add a second htacess string that will just make this work?

  4. . but ofcourse the Buddypress Avatars are no longer working.

    Since the rest of the install is fine, go ask about the BP avatars over in the BP forums. If there's any issues people over there will be more aware of it and now how to fix it.

    Yep, I posted a topic, but ended up finding the answer w/ someone else that had the same issue. Here is the topic thread:

    http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/avatars-of-member-not-showing-in-all-blogs/

    I guess I'll never understand why changing the htacess back to normal - all the suddenly fixed the CSS issues, and the Post Images, but I'll take it.
