  • Resolved nathanwinters


    Hi, i’ve got a site where I can’t get images to show. They are there in the library, but the thumbnails don’t work. If I click into the thumbnail to show the main image that still doesn’t work, however if I click edit then I will see the image. The images are also not showing on the posts. Any ideas please?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    – resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    I’ve tried deactivated all plugins and that didn’t make a difference.

    I tried the 2015 theme, but that didn’t make any difference.

    Could you let me know how would I go about resetting the plugins folder?


    Just bumping this up, there must be someone out there who knows how to fix this, or at least some next steps?

    Just to let anyone who’s interesting know, I’ve fixed it!
    Turns out the permissions on my uploads directory we all broken!

    I ended up locating a few posts with old images and then looking at the HTML. That gave me the IMG location and when I put that directly in a browser it came up with the error that I didn’t have permissions. I then looked up what permissions to set and logged into the site with SSH.

    I used the command CHMOD -R 0755 ./uploads to set 755 permissions and now everything works fine 🙂
