Support » Plugin: EWWW Image Optimizer » NextGen 2 image uploads seem to not auto-optimize

  • Resolved onerock


    Hello, I am trying to track down what appears to be an issue when images are uploaded through NextGen version 2.0.37. I have not been able to figure out which version of NextGen 2 or EWWW that this issue started with.

    It appears that images and thumbnails are not being optimized automatically. To test, I created a fresh gallery and uploaded several images. I immediately bulk optimized the new gallery with freshly installed images found that every image and thumbnail was being optimized.

    Debug Log

    Can you please assist me in trying to figure out what the issue may be?

    Thanks for your help

    You’re uploading with nextgen 2.0.37? Where did you get that? The latest official release is 2.0.33

    That aside, your debug log looks totally normal, so I’m not sure what is happening on your install. I just double-checked my test site and everything works properly on upload. Are you using the html5 uploader? If you hover over the upload box, it will usually tell you if it is html5. Not sure why you wouldn’t be using it, unless you have a really old browser like IE8.

    Thanks for the reply.

    It is the version that NextGen had me upgrade to in hopes to fix a thumbnail update issue I am having. It didn’t help and the edited thumbnail doesn’t show. I am assuming that they will be pushing it out soon.

    Yes, I am using the html5 uploader.

    And just to make sure, when you say that ‘every image and thumbnail was being optimized’ after a fresh upload, you mean that it actually reported savings when you bulk optimized the new gallery, right?

    Yes, sorry for the confusion.

    Do you have any other nextgen plugins you are using?

    Also, do you have a link where I can grab the beta version of nextgen that you are using? If not, please send it to me via this form:

    I have 2 other NextGen Plugins activated.

    A modified version of Nextgen Search Engine by Alex Rabe
    -this plugin allows integration of image search to the standard WordPress search

    A modified version of Nextgen Gallery Search
    -this plugin allows site admins to search for a gallery name to edit.

    The modifications are to allow them to work with NextGen2.x
    I can get you copies of these if you need them

    Here is the public NextGen beta page

    Thanks so much for your help

    Yes, if you could send me those plugins, I would appreciate it. Seems unlikely that either of them would cause a conflict, but you never know…

    one more question in the meantime:

    What does the image status in the new gallery say (before bulk optimizing) ?

    Is it ‘not processed’, or something else?

    The images status is as follows.

    Not processed
    Image Size: 194.75 kB
    Optimize now!

    In regard to getting you copies of the 2 modified plugins, I do not have a standard packaged plugin. Can I just zip up the plugin folder and send that to you?

    If so here they are.

    Thanks Scott

    Ok, so that seems to indicate that the hook is not firing at all. If it fired, and the tools were malfunctioning or something else was going wrong , we would see No Savings. Hmmm, I’ll grab those plugins and see what I can come up with.

    No luck reproducing this with any of those plugins or the beta version of NextGEN…

    1. If you go to the Media Library->Add New and upload a few images there, do they get auto-optimized?

    2. Can you download the ‘dev’ version of EWWW IO and paste an updated version of the debug log from the settings page?

    Bummer, thanks for trying.

    I have verified that uploading images to the media library do auto-optimize.

    I removed and re-installed the dev version of EWWW. Here is the New Debug Log

    Ok, we’ve eliminated a couple possibilities:
    1. The optimization tools are working fine.
    2. The nextgen version is being detected correctly, so the proper nextgen integration class should be loaded.

    There is still the issue of why the optimization isn’t firing on upload. I’ll have to do some more thinking on that, and see if I can think of anything else.

    Ok, one more thing you can check:
    1. remove the debug.log file from the ewww-image-optimizer folder.
    2. upload some images to nextgen
    3. see if there is anything in the debug.log afterwards.

    Sorry I do not see that file in the ewww-image-optimizer folder under plugins. Is it stored elsewhere?
