Auto thumbnail wih Church theme not working. Tried everything! (3 posts)

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone here is using the Studiopress Church theme and might be able to help. Basically I am having the auto thumbnail issue that many others have although I have tried all the fixes I've read and nothing seems to work. Basically instead of a thumbnail I get either a second post title (in Firefox) or a red X in I.E.

    I was also getting this issue with the theme set up on my localhost before I uploaded it. But I am now just checking it all over using the Test Drive Plugin, and it's a good job too...! I hope these images all appear below, as due to using Test Drive I cannot link to the theme direct.

    I'm using Church 4 and with my permissins were set to this as standard:

    /tools/ folder 755
    /tools/cache/ folder 755
    timthumb.php 644

    Which gave me this, when viewed with Firebug...

    <img src="http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c22/richardmpeters/random/775.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    I then read a fix that said change the permissions, so I did, to what was suggested:

    /tools/ folder 777
    /tools/cache/ folder 777
    timthumb.php 644

    And that gave me this result...

    <img src="http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c22/richardmpeters/random/777.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    Which tells me the original permissions are ok and that is not the issue?

    My custom fields are correct:

    <img src="http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c22/richardmpeters/random/C_field-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    And finally, my Tools/Cache/ folder looks like this:

    <img src="http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c22/richardmpeters/random/CACHE.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    So the images are in there (I downloaded one and opened it in photoshop) so I'm wondering if it's a code issue that needs fixing in one of my .php files or something?!

    Any help would be VERY appreciated!!!

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately I have the same problem (same theme). I'm trying to help out a friend but can't manage to get the thumbs next to the articles.

    All I get is duplicate Article Name which links to the article page.

    I have tried putting in the custom field "thumbnail" also. (Seen it somewhere on the web, with no results).

    When I use "thumb" the duplicate appears next to the article name. (but no image, from the image URL inserted into the Value field).

    The thing is that I don't even manage to get the images appear in the cache folder. I tried setting the CHMODS both ways you did, with no results.

    Is there any setting I need to do? Activate Timthumb from somewhere?

    Please help.
