Support » Plugin: Background Manager » Content Encoding Error

  • Hi,

    when trying to add an image to an image set (either existing or new), following error occurs:

    “Content Encoding Error

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

    Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.”

    A couple of days ago I did not get this error message?

    Additional info:

    This looks like it may be a configuration issue with the webserver itself – are you able to add a image through the WordPress Media Library itself? If so, you can then use the “Attach” feature within the Media Library to attach it to a background Image Set.
