    Ok. its some compatibility issue with timthumb. If it was working before this update please use the last working version (which would be 2.2.3) or just replace the timthumb.php file in 2.2.4 with the one in 2.2.3.

    I will look more into this issue.

    thnx a lot.

    Go to [YOUR_PLUGIN_DIR]\category-grid-view-gallery\includes\ and open timthumb.php
    Go to line number 40
    if(! defined(‘FILE_CACHE_DIRECTORY’) ) define (‘FILE_CACHE_DIRECTORY’, ‘/cache’);
    if(! defined(‘FILE_CACHE_DIRECTORY’) ) define (‘FILE_CACHE_DIRECTORY’, ‘../cache’);

    adding the 2 dots should do it. I will release the fix tomorrow


    Thanks Anshul,

    It worked perfectly.

    Its updated on wordpress as well now

    Dear Anshul

    I copied my site from a draft copy using plugin called duplicator. The category view gallery worked in draft version but not in the final copied version. the thumbnails were missing as above. When I looked at the code using firebug the urls for the thumbnails had distorted code eg.
    <img title=”EMMA McQUINSTON” alt=”EMMA McQUINSTON” src=”″>

    I tried a completely new install of wordpress with new install of category view gallery and just set up one category and one post – the thumbnail was the same – empty

    I have tried copying the timthumb from verions 2.2, 2.1, downloaded from your forum – still no thumbnails.

    I also noticed that the cache file is in the root directory of your plugin rather than the included folder – so tried removing the 2 dots as advised. still no thumbnails. I also tried copying the cache folder into the includes folder – still no thumbnails

    please help

    my website is a temporary address

    I cant think of anything else – I love your plugin please help me to make it work

    thank you

    I’m having the same issue – but I did notice two interesting things:

    1. The cache folder is empty, except for an index.html and a timthumb_cacheLastCleanTime.touch file.

    2. When I view selection source on the rendered page, a bunch of the code for the image URL is replaced with ascii for symbols:

    http%3A%2F%2F(domain here)%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F07%2F16-400×403.jpg&h=200&w=200&zc=1&q=75

    This might be what’s causing the issue. Other grid plugins are not converting the URL that way.

    Try this :
    Open PLUGIN_DIR/category-grid-view-gallery/includes/CatGridView.php
    go to line 94

    src='.urlencode(str_replace(get_option('siteurl'), '', $cg_img)).'

    if this doesnt work, then replace it by

    src='.str_replace(get_option('siteurl'), '', $cg_img).'

    Dear Ashul,
    after transferring of WP Site to Hosting there is no icons more. Can you help me please.

    As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic. Your problem – despite any similarity in symptoms – is likely to be completely different.


    I found your Category Grid View Gallery plugin and it is really nice and simple to use. I would like to know if this plugin can be configured to use images from url. Or what I need and searching for days is to show image from script that is on other web site.
    I’m trying to use affiliate program to show their products in the grid.

    The script looks like this

    “<script src=”″></script>”

    number 7341 is product on example page(not mine site) and when I just put it in post then shows image and some info like it should.

    Can it be done?
