I am starting to test some functionality for a site I am building but I cannot get the images to display with either the shortcode or the widget as seen here http://poetryofgrace.com/pg/gallery Async is set to true and I am running PHP 5.3.1
From what I can see it seems like the webserver don’t allow timthumb to create the cache files in the server tmp upload folder. IT should work and do work for most users.
At the moment the only solution we have for this is to manually edit the timthumb-config.php in the plugin folder and change the “FILE_CACHE_DIRECTORY” path to a new folder in for example wordpress upload folder.
We are aware that this is far from a good solution so we are looking for a better one to use in the future.
There where some problems with the SVN today for me, so for some reason the style css file where missing in the latest update. I have once again updated the plugin so the css file is there and you should not see a bullet list. (there is no new version number this time)
About broken images, do I understand you right that you get a folder called “ep-hashimage” in /wp-content/uploads/” ?
If you do, then I don’t really know why it’s not working for you. Test with manually give the ep folder a 0777 permissions.
