  • Can’t show thumb pic
    dose the plugin use “feature pic” in post or first pics in post ?

    zknight – I’m trying to get the same effect you did on a client site i am working on. I need the gallery images to link to the post page and not the image itself. Can you give some direction on how you accomplished this? I can’t seem to find much documentation on this plugin. Any help would be appreciated!

    btunstill:
    2 ideas for things to check:
    1. If you’re using some kind of lightbox/colorbox plugin for images, it might be automatically displaying an image
    2. When you insert the image in the post, you have an option where to link it to. Your default options are to the image url, the post url, or none. Try setting it to the post url if it’s not.

    zknight:
    nice job!

    Guys, the new version 2 is out. With all the security issues resolved and lots of new features added. Also this time it is well documented.

    The security issue was with the timthumb script and not the plugin in itself. I have updated the timthumb script to the latest version

    I cannot get the featured image to show up. I have checked everything you posted about thumbnails not appearing and making those changes does not seem to work. A blank box shows up and I am able to go to the post page, but no image. What am I doing wrong?

    @debdaniels – please provide the link to you page where the problem is occuring.

    @anshul – bear with me a minute….I’m trying to recreate it again. Sorry for the delay, but I would really like your help. Will be back with a URL shortly.

    I cannot replicate what I have done. Now, nothing shows on the page. Before, a blank image space was showing and allowing me to click through to the post page, but now…nothing. I have Featured Image checked. One thing to note is that no matter how many times I do this to generate the code, it always has a cgview id=1. Never changes from 1.

    Here is my link. The site is just in development and does not look anything like I will have it look in the future. Just trying to get the code I want. By the way, the post has a video on it and the featured image is just a static image. I don’t know if this matters or not.

    Your category does not have any post inside it. Make sure your use the id for a category that has posts.

    Ok, now take a look. That fixed part of it, but no featured image. Thanks for your help

    For the issue with thumbnail not showing up, this is the error :
    <h1>Forbidden</h1>
    <p>You don’t have permission to access /6yhn5tgb/wp-content/plugins/category-grid-view-gallery/includes/timthumb.php
    on this server.</p>
    <p>Additionally, a 404 Not Found
    error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.</p>

    If the thumbnails aren’t showing anywhere, then here are a few reasons why:

    – If you are using WordPress Multisite, try replacing /scripts/timthumb.php with the one from here: http://compu.terlicio.us/2011/04/timthumb-for-wordpress-multisite/ The theme is already taking into account Multisite, but still some may have issues which this timthumb.php update may hopefully resolve.

    – Make sure your image filename (or path) has no unusual characters in it. Tildes (~) is a common character used in filenames which timthumb.php doesn’t seem to agree with.

    – Make sure you’re NOT running PHP 4.x. If you are, upgrade to 5.x. This was a solution to someone recently who tried EVERYTHING and images weren’t showing up. A way to find out what version you’re running is to add this code to one of your theme files, like in header.php: <?php phpinfo; ?> Make sure it’s somewhere between the <body> tag. Refresh the site and you’ll see a really ugly table that’s hard to read, but you’ll be able to find out the version of PHP you’re using.

    To upgrade to PHP 5, contact your web host company.

    Due to increasing queries of timthumb issues, i plan to add an option of using wordpress core resizing for thumnails as an alternative to timthumb.

    Plan to release an update real soon

    Thanks, Anshul. I’ll have my husband help me with the server stuff and will let you know the outcome. It may be later today or tomorrow before I post anything further.

    Ansul: May have found the problem. When the image is suppose to be loaded, the code looks like this:

    http://mytulsatv.com/6yhn5tgb/wp-content/plugins/category-grid-view-gallery/includes/timthumb.php?src=http://mytulsatv.com/6yhn5tgb/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/leonard-marker.jpg&h=165&w=220&zc=1&q=75

    The ?src=http://mytulsatv.com/6yhn5tgb seems to be the problem. How do we keep from passing the full URL as a part of the parameters? The code below pulls the image in correctly.

    http://mytulsatv.com/6yhn5tgb/wp-content/plugins/category-grid-view-gallery/includes/timthumb.php?src=/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/leonard-marker.jpg&h=165&w=220&zc=1&q=75
