thumbnails?

Huh? Please correct me if I am wrong, but is piwigo not supposed to create thumbnails? Or do I have to do that manually?

I upped 8000+ pictures, thru FTP, iported them and waited for a day or so. I can't locate any thumbnails, anywhere?

In the admin -> photos -> caddie (or batch manager) there is no generate thumbs?

Re: thumbnails?

there are many topics about that

thumbnails (and other sizes) are into _data/i

there IS an option to generate differente sizes in the batch manager (don't remind the name but I swear you can find it :-) )

Re: thumbnails?

The link leads me to this reply box?

Anyway: Ah! Found them. Ok, another one figured out ;) Now you see, even the best software can be difficult for them @#^*%# amateurs (like me) ;)

Re: thumbnails?

I am still lost ;) Please excuse my dumbnes...

-

I have verified: the thumbnail is available, and I can download and view it:

http://www.kerstdorpen.nl/catalog3/_dat … 3cm-sq.jpg

Now. I go to administration -> config -> options -> display.
I set Activate navigation thumbnails to ON
I go to http://www.kerstdorpen.nl/catalog3/inde … tegory/205
click the first tree
On the lower right corner is a blank square, containing the name of the next picture
I select properties
http://www.kerstdorpen.nl/catalog3/i.ph … 3cm-sq.jpg
goto that link and
the image "http://www.kerstdorpen.nl/catalog3/i.php?/galleries/luville/2009/trees/605153-tree-linden_tree_23cm-sq.jpg" cannot be displayed because it contains errors

(part 2)

When I F5 (reload) the page, the navigation thumbnail(s) do appear.

(part 3)

After refreshing my browser
or
after seeing the broken thumbnail image thingy

when I go back to that page "another" time, or in another browser, the thumbnails are in view.

(poewee...)

So, is my server too slow? Do I need to reset the thumbnails? Did I miss a switch? Should I "build" all thumbnails on all pages for all pictures by just going to all pictures in all pages by hand?

**
Thank you for your patience!

(edit: to see the effect go for example to http://www.kerstdorpen.nl/catalog3/inde … tegory/197 . I did not change anything (f5, refresh) in there.)

Re: thumbnails?

Use the batch manager to generate the resized pictures

Re: thumbnails?

The thumbnails are on my server, should I recreate them all by the batch manager?



-
On a sidenote: I just tried the internal uploader. When I go to the pictures I just uploaded

first time I look at the page shows a broken image
second time I go to the page shows the image

Re: thumbnails?

@novw all your bug report is related to the same thing : your host is very very restrictive! Should consider changing it

btw for me I didn't see any problem while refreshing tons of time

Re: thumbnails?

My host is very cooperative in trying to get everything up and running, so I am not considering changing ;)

When I stumble upon something I always "report". I have learned thru time many many many programs can be made to work even on a "safe" host. Mostly because the programmes own their own server they simply "forget" about the rest of us. This is not meant as an attack ! This is trying to help. Most end-users, like me, will be on some sort of restricted host. And you are right, my host is VERY restricted. But again: cooperative in finding the sollution.

For example (really: example. I do not know exactly) fhe Fget (? or something like that) is easily replaced by FOpen (? I really don't kwno what I am talking about!). Even the most tightly secured server will allow the second one.

I am getting a big fan of piwigo. Please don;t be angry because I am "that guy" that keeps posting what he faces. I am a low to intermediate user. Most of the people looking at piwigo will be overwhelmed by the possibilities. Even when this is one of the best pieces of software I have been trying for a long long long time. When I don;t understand something, I ask. Next time around when somebody else does not understand the same thing the answer is ready ;)

I'll pass that one on to my host! Super thank you! We are gradually adding permissions ;)

Re: thumbnails?

we do care about low cost hoster : Piwigo was historically called PhpWebGallery, and was popularized thanks to a very famous French ISP which also offer a free popular hostage service : so we always tried to make a code which could run on basic server and rolls-royce ones. And it's becomming harder and harder since everyone want auto-update, auto-generation,... all automatic! Any server based script is server dependent, even Wordpess will 'bug' with Safe mode on and functions disabled for 'security'
As you can see here you still can generate resized pictures, and you can even generate then locally on your computer BUT if you want all the features, don't getting drawbacks well... there are a lot of cheap hoster without any restriction Seems like your hoster has never hosted something else than html pages (the 'include' issue was epic)
