    Dear Anshul

    I have tried all the suggestions in the thread which is resolved
    Thumbnail Not Showing After 2.2.4 update
    they havent worked for me so am starting a new topic. Category grid view is really useful and unique plugin and It would be great to use it. please help

    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 am having a similar problem in that my thumbnails are not showing either, except it happened with the more recent WordPress version upgrades, 3.3.1 to 3.4.1, maybe even the version before that. I love your plugin and hope there’s an easy fix so I can continue using it.

    Any response would be greatly appreciated!

    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).'



    Thank you so much for your quick response, but I was not able to find that first line of code in the file. Any idea what I could be doing wrong? I went to the correct page and searched the document, but could not locate it 🙁

    It is under the function : cg_get_image

    just before the closing of the function

    return '<a href='.$returnlink.'><img src="'.$cg_url.'/includes/timthumb.php?src='.urlencode($cg_img).'&h='.$size[1].'&w='.$size[0].'&zc=1&q='.$this->params['quality'].'" alt="'.$single->post_title.'" title="'.$single->post_title.'"/></a>';
