[resolved] Options Not Saving (thumbnails, rotation and effects) (6 posts)

    I've searched and searched and searched for a way to fix this, but nothing I've tried has worked.

    I've tried:

    • Disabling all possibly conflicting plugins
    • Reinstalling the gallery
    • Fiddling with the settings in case something got hung up somwhere

    Every once in a while, I got an edited thumbnail to actually take (did nothing different to make that happen), but I have never once got the image rotation or the effect setting to take. In the page refresh generated after hitting "save", the options show as they should. But moving away from that page and coming back shows that they've reverted. Or rather, that they never took at all. If I clear my cache and reload my gallery page it shows the old settings.

    As far as I know, only the three mentioned settings are not working. I've created an album and changed the thumbnail size settings with no problems.

    I am totally stuck now. Any ideas?

    Oh, forgot to link to my page!

    Also, though I've no idea if this is a related issue, in IE and Chrome my page background is utterly missing. It's like the entry/content box's background just vanished and you can see the background of the site. I tried floating the overall div, but that only fixed Firefox (which previously had the same issue). More fiddling with the css didn't get me anywhere, nor did Googling over and over again.

    Thanks so much!!

    OK, fixed the issue with my effects options not saving... Turns out it was a NGG plugin issue. Never thought to look there when it was MADE for NextGen. But anyway, that one's fixed.

    Also fixed the background issue on the gallery page in IE, but not in Chrome. I hacked the code for the gallery to make it show up different, but I used only NGG's own templates to do it. ?? Very confusing.

    So, the thumbnails and the rotations are still not saving, and the background on the front page is still missing.

    Whew! How is it that I spend all day (as in, 6 hours) working on these issues and all at once I start finding the causes myself? Heh!

    Background fixed now. Still leaves the thumbnails and the rotations to be solved.

    OK, so, it seems to be working OK now.

    Basically, I just kept upping the memory limit and ended up at 180m. Also, I had to re-upload some of the larger images.

    Although this was the FIRST fix I went to, it seems that I didn't take it far enough to start with.
