Support » Plugins and Hacks » Scissors Stuck Crunching Large Images

  • Image crunching gets stuck on the first file larger than 900px wide (and 216Kb). I never had an issue with this plugin before the most recent version(s). I tested on a few sites and the problem seems universal. Maybe something to do with the 1.1.1 update?

    Has anyone else had a similar issue? And BTW, I absolutely LOVE this plugin…It’s in my all-time top five WordPress plugin list. Thanks for all the hard work!

  • I’ll look into it, thanks for the report! Could you revert to one of the older versions of Scissors to find out when the problems started (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/scissors/download/). That would be immensly helpful because it reduces the amount of code I’ll have to check.

    And thanks a lot for your kind words! I’m very glad you enjoy using the plugin,

    This problem is due to a server side timeout during the generation of metadata for newly uploaded images. Disable auto resizing of the full image and uncheck the adaptive mode checkboxes in WordPress’ media settings and everything should be back to normal.

    I’ll try to find out if there’s a way to extend the maximal running time for the upload script: set_timeout is probably a way to go, but it’s not supported in safe mode, which is enabled on most web hosts.

    Everything seems back to normal with the newest update. Thanks, Stephan!

    Actually, it’s still not working with larger files. 1680 x 1050 @ 180KB. Crunching, crunching….

    … depends on the server load, unfortunately.
