Support » Plugins » User Community Plugin: profile and gallery directories?

  • Resolved magcrossin


    Finally figuered how to get it on your forum, sorry I had trouble getting this here. Anyway please read below.

    Hello, great plugin! Just hope I can get it to work. I started out fine with the installation. Created a members page, saw the list but when I clicked on the name link there was no profile. And every time I tried to upload a photo it said there was no directory. I checked every sort of installation and usage document but I can figure how to create sub directories for profiles and the gallery? Can you please help?

  • Well, the profile page is there but not shows 🙂 Look at this:

    It means that for some reason, permalinks to the user profiles are not created in the proper way, as them does not include index.php in the URL.

    This is a plugin bug. A bug report has been submited to and you can monitor it to know when it’s solved.

    Will try to publish the 0.5.2 release with this fix ASAP. I think will be fixed before tomorrow night.

    Just released Community 0.5.2. This release should solve your links problem.

    THANK YOU! That was really fast. Now is there anyway I can get the photo to show like in your screen shots? Or maybe it is a setting I have to set?

    Love this plugin:)

    Have you uploaded the pictures to the user Gallery? The only avatar shown in the page comes from Gravatar…

    The user gallery is in the User menu.

    Yes I tried many times but I keep getting Upload error: Destination directory can’t be created. Can’t carry on a process. Do I have to create a directory?

    This normally is caused by rights on your WordPress uploads folder. Yo have to set there permissions that allow the server user to write files and to create and execute folders.

    After setting this rights, deactivate and reactivate the plugin to create the directories (Them are created at activation time). Look at the uploads folder, there have to be an ‘alkiva’ folder and inside it, a ‘users’ folder. (This is <uploads>/alkivia/users)

    Another way is to manually create this folders with write permissions to the server user. (to both folders, alkivia and alkivia/users).

    Just to test, you can set rights on this folders to 777. If it works, you can change them to fit your security needs, but remember that the server user always needs write access as it is who creates the files.

    Hmmm, I tried both options but didnt work. For some reason there is a alkivia folder in wp-contents, not in uploads. But I manually added folders wp-contents/alkivia/users with write permission for both, but still getting the same error

    I have also deactivated and reactivated the plugin after setting write permission to uploads folder, but that didnt work either.

    I just realized in my control panel file manager the alkivia outside uploads, the one the plugin created has uneditable permissions with user: apache

    alkivia 4.00 KB rwx r-x r-x April 7, 2009 apache apache
    plugins 4.00 KB rwx rwx rwx May 3, 2009 redshoegirl11 psacln
    themes 4.00 KB rwx rwx rwx April 29, 2009 redshoegirl11 psacln
    upgrade 4.00 KB rwx rwx rwx May 3, 2009 redshoegirl11 psacln
    uploads 4.00 KB rwx rwx rwx May 3, 2009 apache apache
    index.php 4.00 KB rw- r– r– April 29, 2009 redshoegirl11 psacln

    7 files and directories in / httpdocs / wp-content total Number of entries per page: 10 25 100 ALL

    If the folder was created outside the uploads folder, normally is a WordPress misconfiguration. Look at this:

    OK great, I fix the problem with the folders. Now I can upload the admin1.jpg and it generates 2 more files admin1_avatar.jpg and admin1_thumb.jpg. But unfortunately the thumb is the only file that shows. Any idea why?

    Actually its just the Main Photo thumb that shows, nothing else. Here is the link:
    But I do see them in the control panel and the admin panel with a red X.

    Shown image is the profile size. Checking it’s name you can see it, as thumbnail images ends with _thum. So, you have to check the image sizes you’ve set on the gallery settings or, if using WordPress defaults, on the WordPress media settings.

    Also, check your server and WordPress settings, as sometimes the uploads folder shows as “uploads” and others shows as “upLoads” (Note the upercase L). In the last case it does not works because that folder with upercase L does not exists on disk.

    Yes thats exactly what happened, there are two folders one with the uppercase. I decided to not deal with it too much as it was uploading, but I guess I was wrong. So I cant have the upLoad folder? Everytime I deleted it, it kept coming back. Any idea how I can get rid of it?

    Sorry to be such a bother with this, I really appreciate you taking the time to help me.
