    Hello, I'm using Elgg 3.14, Tidypics 3.3.1 and Blog 3.0. Adding an image to a blog post also adds that image to the activity river. I know I can switch off all uploaded photos appearing in the activity river, but I was wondering if...

    Hello, Firstly, thanks to all the Elgg developers for their great work. This is my first post, so please forgive me if I've posted this question in the wrong place or could have found the answer elsewhere (I have looked). I'm running...
    • Tidypics supports 3 image libraries: default is GD php extension (which is required to be available by Elgg core). And then there's the Imagick php extension (which you would have to make sure it's installed in your XAMPP environment). Lastly, there's the ImageMagick command line option which makes use of the convert command available within the ImageMagick package. The path to the convert command would only be necessary to provide if you want to use the ImageMagick command line tools.

      I have to admit that I can't tell for sure if the ImageMagick option works on XAMPP/Windows. I never tried it and as I have no Windows I couldn't even try it. If you provide the full path to the directory where the convert command, i.e. where you installed ImageMagick to - try also with a slash at the end of the path - it either works or it might be the confirmation that it does not work on Windows. You can also try the path on the ImageMagick tab where you would get some version information provided by the convert command if it's found at the path and can be executed.

      If the ImageMagick command line tools option doesn't work on XAMPP, you might try to get the Imagick php extension option to work as it's at least better than the default GD php extension because the latter has quite high memory consumption for resizing images with a high resolution. The other two image libary options don't have these memory issue.

    • Thank you, iionly, for your detailed response.

      I installed the ImageMagick PHP extension and everything appears to be working fine.
      The TidyPics Server Information tab displays:
                   imagick    Enabled    
                   exec()    Enabled    Required for ImageMagick command line

      My site's production server is Linux, so the ImageMagick path will probably resolve correctly. If I do manage to get the ImageMagick command line tools working without the PHP extension, I'll post the results.

      Thanks again.

    • Are you reallly asking about DOWNloading or is it about UPloading?

      I don't know of any download size restrictions.

      I guess you refer to the default memory limit set by Elgg of 64 megabyte. If you need to increase this value, you can modify the value set for memory_limit in Elgg's .htaccess file in the root folder of your Elgg installation. If you need to increase the value for Tidypics thumbnail creation to work, you might also want to check if the values for upload_max_filesize and post_max_size in .htaccess suit your requirements (upload_max_filesize = maximum filesize of uploaded images; post_max_size >= upload_max_filesize x number of images you allow to be uploaded with Tidypics in one batch).

      Suggestion: if you have either the Imagick php extension or the Image Magick package installed on your server, you can select either of these options in the Tidypics plugin settings to be used as image library as both have much lower memory requirements (and provide better resize quality results, too).

    Sorry, my mistake. UTC - 5 is Montreal time (Eastern Daylight Time).  UTC is same as GMT. If I deleted the folders in question then put them back five hours later, would that fix it? (Probably a silly question but its late!) view reply
