To start off with, here is the link to my site: http://www.ruggeddiamond.com. I’m not the best coder in the world, so I’m sure I’ve done something to not allow my theme to jive with the new image uploader.
Here is my story so far…
I uploaded an image: 1920×1200 (486kb) and it gave me a “HTTP error” message (this is also the same for other themes I’ve created)… I then went upon troubleshooting for the last several hours until I finally landed on the post thumbnail section in my functions.php being the issue (I hope and think). I wish I had a complete solution here, but I don’t, and I’m wondering if for some people if it’s a bug with their theme, or something that is messed up in WordPress 3.5.1…
I figured it’s something to do with my theme because the 2012 theme works wonderfully. Finally I deleted everything in functions.php. I then uploaded an image and it worked perfectly. From there, I went through trial and error of deleted each different section and then uploaded an image, but to no avail, still the same “http error”: jquery, navigation, sidebars, shortcodes didn’t work, until I got to post thumbnails… and this is where I am now…
here is what my code looks like (this is what I believe causes the http error for me):
// Featured Thumbnails add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ); set_post_thumbnail_size( 210, 210 ); add_image_size( 'featured', 260, 260, true ); // Located on FRONT PAGE add_image_size( 'quicks', 160, 160, true ); // Located on FRONT PAGE
Because when I take away the “true” in the add_image_size, everything uploads fine and no error.
// Featured Thumbnails add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ); set_post_thumbnail_size( 210, 210 ); add_image_size( 'featured', 260, 260 ); // Located on FRONT PAGE add_image_size( 'quicks', 160, 160 ); // Located on FRONT PAGE
The solution of taking out the “true” would be fine if this was just for my site, because I don’t mind cropping images to fit properly, but I don’t expect any clients to do the same. I’d much rather them be able to upload an image of any dimension and have wordpress crop it for them… isn’t that what makes wordpress (and other CMS’ special?).
I’m wondering if anyone else is having this issue, and if there has been any luck finding solutions. Would love to get to the bottom of this.
