Support » Fixing WordPress » No thumbnail Option when posting photo’s?

  • I just installed WordPress. Picked my template, but I got to post a photo to the blog, and there is no thumbnail option. All I get is options to post full size or title.

    I looked at other post and some people figured it out, but never said how. Any ideas, or other plug in options I can use?

    You can look at it here. http://www.urienet.com/Wordpress This is just a trial site tell to get everything figured out.

    Thanks!

    In my case the problem was gd2 not loaded. Once activated and the server restarted (I’m using a test environment) the thumbnail option is showed. As I can see, the previously uploaded images need to be deleted and uploaded again to generate and use the thumbnail.

    Hope this help.

    Sorry I am a newbie. What is a gd2, and how do I load it?

    Thanks!

    BTW I am using 1and1 as the host, if that has anything to do with it.

    Figured it out. My images were too big.

    Sorry for the delay: GD2 is a extension or library used to dynamically generate or manipulate graphic images within a webserver or within program scripts. You need your host provider loads or activate in PHP. To test if GD2 is active you can upload a page to your site with only this line of code <?php phpinfo(); ?> Then open your browser and go to this page, and you’ll see a lot of information. Search for a block entitled gd. If you found it, then gd2 is active, if you can’t found it, contact your host provider to activate gd2.

    Good luck.

    does it have to say gd2. I see a section called gd, which has lots of graphics related information, and says it is enabled. But I don’t see gd2.

    gibblog, 2nd line of the gd section: GD Version bundled (2.0.28 compatible)

    You are at GD2.

    I would highly recommend removing the phpinfo page from your server as soon as possible. There is information in there that some with low moral standards would find useful.

    WordPress Version: 2.2.2
    Localhost : EasyPHP 1.8
    GD: enabled

    My wordpress does not generate thumbnail, the option to choose to create the thumb does not appear.
    Anyone know why ?

    Any help would be wonderful!
    Thanks for everyone…
