    I just activated the WordPress Mobile Pack. All went smoothly, except, it has not resized my pictures. I have selected 'shrink images' within the mobile themes, so they should be resized. However, they are not. The picture gets cut off. I have tried unselecting shrink images and the same thing happens. Any thoughts?

    I've encountered more bugs than the Orkin man with this misbegotten pack of flawed code and designs.

    If I enable the teaser text, I get a teaser with the Read More link on the odd numbered headlines headlines. The even numbered headlines have a Read More in plain text with a Read More link immediately below it and no teaser.

    I get question marks instead of images. Additionally the headline text and for that matter all text titles are not correctly aligned with the background images and run off the bottom.

    I was hoping to create a custom child theme off the mobile pace base, but is has more bugs than a beta copy of windows. It's so bug ridden, in fact, it isn't worth the effort. It fails the http://ready.mobi/ Word Press test miserably with invalid markup, slow load times and a legion of other issues.

    I'm still looking for something worth the trouble of creating a child them based on. This certainly is not it!

    i've installed this on my test site
    and it seems to work (@least that's what an iphone user said, but it does score 2 @ redi.mobi)-:

    but when i tried to activate on my production site

    i get these errors:

    --Not able to cache images to /var/www/vhosts/default/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-mobile-pack/plugins/wpmp_transcoder/c. That directory is not executable. Please ensure that the web server has write- and execute-access to it.
    --Not able to install theme files to /var/www/vhosts/default/htdocs/wp-content/themes. That directory is not writable. Please ensure that the web server has write- and execute-access to it.

    but i have chmodded those:

    drwxrwxrwx 2 cavitronix_wp psacln 4096 Jul 5 14:36 /var/www/vhosts/default/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-mobile-pack/plugins/wpmp_transcoder/c

    drwxrwxrwx 7 cavitronix_wp psacln 4096 Sep 6 15:43 /var/www/vhosts/default/htdocs/wp-content/themes

    so wtf???

    I was having the same problem and found a fix.

    My images were not showing up on mobile devices. I had checked that cache directory was writeable. Using FTP/SSH I could even find the resized images being created in the .../wpmp_transcoder/c directory. However I was getting red x's instead of images on the mobile client device.

    Turns out I had installed my wordpress into a subdirectory but was using the base domain as the siteurl per this article.

    I then found a perfect fix documented on the following forum post:

    WordPress Mobile Pack [resolved] Images not showing

    Kudos to gilu for finding and documenting this fix.

    Hope this helps you or someone having the same issue.
