[Plugin: WordPress Popular Posts] Images not loading…

    Hi Chaz,

    Just checked your site and it seems that the image cannot be found. Can you please check that the cache directory (wordpress-popular-posts/cache) exists and is writable? If so, are there any images in it?.

    Hey H├ęctor;

    The cache folder was set to 755. I set it to 777.

    Inside that folder…

    An index.html and a couple timthumb.txt files.

    Having the same issues. I thought it was an MU supercache cdn issue, but now I see others have the same problem.

    the two image options…”Featured”, “First Post Image” are not producing a working thumbnail. Custom Field works but I don’t use the custom field for images I’m afraid.

    Yeah…

    I’ve killed the cache (was using QuickCache). Still no joy.

    I’m having a similar problem. I can see the media folders on the server, but they seem to be rerouted via WP. Any hints?: http://eparentingblog.com/. The settings for media from WP ‘/home/cmikecs/public_html/eparentingblog/wp-content/uploads’. It’s hosted on GoDaddy, the tech and I could only see the path from eparentingblog…

    Chaz: can you please try these suggestions?

    Nm: can you please share your site’s URL so I can go take a look at the source code?

    @ddegrandpre: I checked your site and I didn’t see the WordPress Popular Posts widget anywhere. Is your problem related with this plugin?

    I’ve read the hints… Everything was set as directed.

    I noticed this.

    <img src=”http://coralspringstalk.com/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/timthumb.php?src=http://coralspringstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/claudiamurphy.jpg&h=200&w=285″ width=”285″ height=”200″ alt=”Missing Coral Springs Woman Maria Claudia Murphy Last Seen Walking on Sample Road” border=”0″ class=”wpp_fi”>

    So when I load: http://coralspringstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/claudiamurphy.jpg&h=200&w=285

    I get no image.

    When I load: http://coralspringstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/claudiamurphy.jpg

    I find the image.

    Hector…

    I think it was related to Better WP Security. i turned down the plugin and the images showed up.

    I shall investigate.

    There was no Popular Posts widget. I tried downloading and installing and received this error: ‘The plugin post-plugin-library/post-plugin-library.php has been deactivated due to an error: Plugin file does not exist’ Similarly, I cannot install the content gallery. Thinking this was the problem, I deactivated it then, deleted it, hoping it would eliminate the error codes and the media access problems. I couldn’t reinstall it when it didn’t clear up the problem.

    quick fix for me was to change line 1062 in the wordpress-popular-posts.php

    $path = get_the_post_thumbnail( $p->id, array($tbWidth,$tbHeight));//$this->get_img($p->id, "featured");

    and line 1065…

    $thumb .= "{$path}";

    and this is using the featured image option.

    I hope there is a solution soon. I really enjoy this plugin one of my top 3 favorites.

    Looking at how the thumbs get displayed, would be great to have a fallback system, from Featured Image to Custom Field to Image in Post to the default no-image.

    @chazstevens: Hector…

    That could be it. Try contacting the developer of that plugin and let him know about the problem. Maybe he can provide us with a suggestion to resolve it.

    @nm: I tried that solution, too. However, for some reason the get_the_post_thumbnail function was ignoring the custom width / height dimensions (array($tbWidth,$tbHeight)) and wasn’t creating the image with the exact values passed to it. That’s why I decided to go for a different approach and used Timthumb instead. It seems I need to investigate a little bit more about this. I like the fallback idea, let’s see what I can do about it.

    @ddegrandpre: I noticed that error, too. It is related to the Post Plugin Library, and even though it has nothing to do with my plugin I did a little research to try and help you and found this and this. Any of these links will help you fix the problem.

    @nahummadrid

    I didn’t even try it with the widget…is that where the function was ignoring? Because it is working with a custom template tag.

    Yes the ability for the plugin just to accept whatever is in use automatically would be cool I think. Then there’s no need to set the different options. Especially handy if we use a mix of all types.

    @hcabrera

    Yup, with the widget it seemed to ignore the custom dimensions, never tested that with the template tag nor the shortcode. It seems I have some work to do this weekend.

    Hello Hector, while solving the problem with the images, where I can download an older version to work correctly?

    All the best

    Hi Hector, I found this section.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/developers/

    I wonder which version works correctly?
