Support » Plugins » [Plugin: WordPress Popular Posts] Thumbnails not working

  • Hey,

    I’m using this great plugin and i have a sligh problem with the Thumbnails.

    I’m using an HTML template for all of my post, so the picture i’d like to display in my sidebar is inside a <table> tag.It look like the pluggin can’t find the image, is there something i shoud do ?

    I’ve try to to put the image outside of the <table> and it’s working. Is there anyway to make it work inside of a table tag ? should i add a custom field ?

    Thanks a lot for your help !

  • Thanks!


    My cache folder has writing permissions, and has files that were generated by timthumb.php but these images still do not display on my widget location.

    Any suggestions please respond.


    To the last three commenters:

    Are there any images on your wordpress-popular-posts/scripts/cache directory?

    I found that if you ask your provider to make sure that you are not on some kind of “white list” (or to make sure you are) for GD library usage that they can help you.

    I asked them to check and it was because GD library was not activated properyl for my account.


    Awesome, thanks for your report ohdiesel!

    I’ll add this info to the FAQ section so others can learn about this issue.

    I have confirmed that my cache folder in wordpress-popular-posts/scripts has writing permissions, my GD Library is enabled and my PHP version is 5.2.8.

    I still cannot seem to figure out how to get these thumbnails to display. I do notice that no files/images have been created within my cache folder. Is there a line of code I need to add somewhere, maybe to timthumb.php?

    website is and the thumbnails show up as broken images (which makes sense at the moment). any help is appreciated!

    Hi diningdetour,

    Have you checked ohdiesel’s report above? Also, try changing your cache folder’s file permission to 755 or 777.

    I have confirmed with my provider that my GD library is enabled is activated properly.

    In terms of a white list, this is usually something associated with an email account, and my provider can find no connection between the GD library and being, or not being, on a white list.

    my cache folder permission is set to 777. Any other ideas?

    Right now, the only suggestion that comes into my mind is try updating timthumb’s script. WPP is not running the latest version, so maybe your host is having some conflicts with it.

    You can either try this solution, or download a fresh copy of timthumb and replace the old one with it.

    just thought I would add the following info myself that some may have overlooked:
    in the Popular Posts Widget (under Theme menu in WP admin), when you check its settings, make sure the following is ticked:
    X – Display post thumbnail
    X – Generate all thumbnails for me

    (Personally, I had only ticked Display post thumbnail, but forgot to tick the Generate all thumbnails for me… )
