[resolved] Thumbnails have stopped working with WP 3.5 (49 posts)

    Not sure if it's just me, however since I've upgraded to WP 3.5 the thumbnails have ceased working in WP Popular Posts.

    Here's the odd thing: the thumbnails still work for posts made before I upgraded WordPress.

    Any thoughts/ help appreciated.

    I am having that issue as well. Definitely a post upgrade issue.

    Same issue here.

    I notice the checkbox won't save on the widget setting. You click save and the checkbox disappears.

    I've deleted and reinstalled just to test.

    Same thing. Check box does not lead to dimensions option and when "saved" the check within the box disappears. No thumbnail on site.

    Thumbnails aren't showing up for me either. However I can save the checkbox in the widget settings. I'm using WordPress 3.5.1. Any idea how to make the thumbnails show up?
    Thanks!

    Hi guys,

    The plugin supports up to WordPress 3.4.2 at the moment. Newer versions of WordPress are not supported yet, I need to upgrade my own setup first and then will test the plugin on 3.5 and on and fix what might be broken.

    I've been working on a development version and would appreciate it if you guys can help me test it under WordPress 3.5. I'd be interested to know if it fixes the thumbnail issue or not, so please if you decide to try it post your feedbacks here.

    Hi Hector,

    I tried the development version and the thumbnails show up in WordPress 3.5.1! Thanks SO much!

    I tried the development version you linked to above. i am experiencing the same issues with the latest wordpress (3.5.1). the thumbnail checkbox is selectable and then when save is hit the check mark disappears and no thumbnails appear on the site.

    Yesterday everything was fine, but today I noticed on all browsers the bottom thumbnail (I'm showing 5), is not aligned with the others. It is positioned to the right. Not sure if this could possibly be fixed with a future version.

    Thanks!

    @shawna1: that's a styling issue, not plugin related. If you post your site's URL I might take a look and offer a few suggestions, though.

    @gormley: yep, someone else reported that, too. I'm already looking into it.

    Alright, a little update here. Found out why the images stopped working, it appears WordPress has changed the way images are attached to posts with 3.5, so setting Thumbnail source to First image on post will get you no results and no thumbnail. The Featured image option seems to be working fine, though.

    All my settings are the same as they were before updating to wordpress 3.5.1. I have the plugin set to "Featured image" and have verified that my posts all have featured images set. I tried deactivating, deleting and then removing the plug folder manually and reinstalling. In addition I tried installing the development version you listed again and I am still experiencing the same issue. When I hit the thumbnails box within the plugin settings it gets checked but when I hit save everything within the plugin saves except the thumbnail box goes blank again. And still not thumbnails appear on the site.

    I think it used to also ask for a size specification once you hit the "thumbnails" box? It does not do that any more either.

    Thanks for the advice. I used margin-right:18px; in order to align all the thumbnails, but now there is a wider space between the thumbnails and post titles. You can see here: http://bizassure.com/blog/

    If you have any suggestions to close up that space more, that'd be great. Thanks

    @shawna1 - give your
    "li" a height. for example:

    #wpp-3 .widget-pad li {
        height: 50px;
    }

    and then remove the 18px from

    [ img.wpp-thumbnail ]

    Hector,

    I figured it out! Unbelievably, my server turned off PHP-GD off... I had them reinstall and I now see the thumbnails!

    Thanks for the great plugin and sorry for the misinformation.

    Hi gormley,

    Thank you for the update. Actually, I was just testing that and came here to ask you about your PHP version & the GD library since my plugin checks for these in order to enable / disable access to the Thumbnail feature.

    To all: please make sure your current hosting runs PHP 5.2 or newer and has the GD extension enabled, otherwise thumbnails won't work.

    This is the response I get from one.com - my provider and for a million other domains:

    "For image processing we offer GD2, but not ImageMagick".

    No thumbnails display on my site, so how do we fix this?

    Will that be fixed in the plugin or do I have to go through ALL articles at set them to "featured image"?

    Thanks!

    Hi Dantes100,

    Nope, as a matter of fact the development version fixes that problem (as reported by other users). It will be pushed as official release after implementing/testing a couple of new features that hopefully you all will like.

    @Cabrera,

    Your response is perhaps OK for some, but on quite a number of WordPress sites this does not work at all, as I have tested your development version and it does not work with providers using GD2 and no Imagemagic.

    Se my previous post for details.

    Hi Morten,

    I saw your previous response and would like to know, are you able to upload images using WordPress' Media Uploader?

  23. Morten Ross

    Hi Héctor,

    I only use the media uploader, and yes I'm using it without any problems in latest WP also - for posts with one or more images.

    OK, I'll take a closer look then. Will let you know when the development version gets updated again so you can help me test it, alright?

    Alright guys, just updated the development version again. Get it while it's still hot here.

    To those interested in the technical stuff, I added support for the WP Image Editor class (introduced with WordPress 3.5) which allows me to create images on-the-fly using native WP code. A very nice addition from our WP developers!

    Anyways, please give it a try and let me know how it goes for you. Morten, I'm specially interested in getting your feedback as well, so please post whenever you get some chance to try it.

    Hi Héctor,

    Just applied the development version, and I get No Thumbnail as before, unfortunately.

    The only way it will display thumbnail is if I specify featured image.

    I'm keeping it active for a couple of hours, so you can check it out.

    Jeez, must be pretty tired but can't seem to find your site's URL. Can you please post it here so I can go take a look?

    It's in my wordpress profile, but here it is: http://ross.no. Let me know when you're back, and I'll revert back to dev version again.

    I see you reverted back already, so I couldn't take a look. I'll be on for a few hours now, so please let me know once you get some spare time to test the development version again.

    Nice blog, btw!
