Support » Plugin: CataBlog » [Plugin: CataBlog] Can't save Options after changing thumbnail size.

  • Resolved smcpheron


    I can’t change thumbnail sizes in options. The save button becomes disabled as soon as I make any changes to the default 100 number. Nothing appears to be wrong with any of the other options. I did a multiple image upload originally and everything else works normally. WordPress 3.4.1 using Weaver II Pro

    This is probably a Javascript error, can you open up a Javascript console using Firebug or Chrome Developer Tools? If so, would you please send me any error or bugs that are reported when you change the thumbnail size. I have had others report similar incidents and still cannot reproduce this bug myself, so its really hard to diagnose.

    I found the problem. The maintenance mode plugin was causing a conflict.

    That plugin has not been updated in a while.

    I found this simple alternative to adding a maintenance plugin. Add this to functions.php of your child theme.

    function maintenace_mode() {
          if ( !current_user_can( 'edit_themes' ) || !is_user_logged_in() ) {wp_die('Sorry, We are performing routine Maintenance. We will be back up shortly.');}
    add_action('get_header', 'maintenace_mode');

    Thank you so much for sharing this info! I have exactly the same problem.

    I am having the same problem. Whenever I try to change the thumbnail dimensions, I get the same greying out of the “Save” button. Any other fix other than having to add some coding? Thanks!

    Hello @thriftdiving, are you also using maintenance mode plugin? If you are then the only solution is what is mentioned above. Maintenance mode plugin has not been updated for a while. You should remove the plugin and find an alternative which is up to date.

    Also this support thread is marked as resolved. Could you start a new support thread if you are experiencing any problem.

    Kind regards

    In no way shape or form is this issue resolved. I’m experiencing the same issue. The button has disabled=”disabled” and a class of disabled on it after I change the values in the input boxes.

    It’s ok. I just went into the code and fixed it myself.

    For anyone else having this problem, go into the CataBlog.class.php
    find this bit of code…

    // catalog item images
    		$values['main-image']      = '<img src="'.$values['image-thumbnails'].'" alt="" />';

    change image-thumbnails to image-lightbox. That will give you access to the fullsize images bypassing the forced image resizer.

    Now, you can size the image any which way you please on the front end.


    Hello talymo, that is good news. What version of WordPress are you running?

    Kind regards

    Hello talymo, I did some more testing and to tell you the truth I am certain your changes are not correct. I just did some testing on my test site running WordPress 3.6 beta 3 and the latest version of the plugin and it works extremely well without making the changes you suggested above. I also think that, that change might cause another conflict in the future.

    I suspect in your circumstances that it is another plugin that is not compatible with CataBlog and causing the button to grey out and or disabled.

    Kind regards
