I’m new to WordPress and has been charged with the responsibility of maintaining a small site.
After look through the site I noticed a lot of image files that were corrupt so I went trough all the image files and deleted all that was corrupt or wasn’t linked to. Including the .thumbs folder in /wp-content/upload/
It appears I’ve broken something by doing this. The thumbnails on the site are not shown, or partially or as corrupted images.
Even uploading my old backup to the site via FTP doesn’t help.
I tried re-creating the thumbnails manually and upload them but to no avail.
In WordPress I can edit my posts that has pictures but the thumbnails are not shown here either even though the files exists.
It appears the creator of the site must have used the upload utility to upload the files since they are all in the /wp-content/uploads folder but the uploaded images are not shown in the Gallery feature – I suspect they should since it doesn’t work.
I’m not sure how the imagery work in WordPress wether or not thumbnails are automatically created or auto-generated when uploaded or how the .thumbs folder is handled but it’s not like the old days where you would just link to a file on the server.
In short I actually just have some pictures I want on the site and I’ve uploaded them via FTP. It shouldn’t be that hard but for some reason I can’t figure WordPress out. I hope there’s someone in here that can help me.
Thank you 🙂
I don’t know how to see what WP version I’m using but I think I saw something with 2.6 or something like that somewhere. I plan to upgrade it as soon as I get this picture thing working.
Also, I’m not running any plugins.
