[Elgg 1.5-1.12 & 2.X - 4.X: Tidypics] v1.6.6

Release Notes

Newest release of Tidypics with some bug fixes. No new features.

  • Tweaked slideshow start code
  • Fixed bug with delete tags menu item
  • Fixed bug in en.php
  • Better error checking for ImageMagick resizing

There have been no reports of incompatibilities with Elgg 1.7 so that's good news.

  • Guys I have some error: when a open a album and click some picture and after that I click the picture again, the picture make a zoom to the same picture but bigger and I see on other elgg webs that the photo change like facebook to the next photo. can you help me to fix that please thanks in advance.

  • Well as i upgraded to 1.7 all images have dissapeard any ideas? where to start digging?

  • @LucieP  use the file plugin with the file_viewer  plugin instead

    @tidypics team i see you have a lot todo :) good luck 

  • @Georges Gillard  : thanks for your answer but actually I need to have directories to put my files in and this plugin is the only one which permite that. However I understand that is not a good way to do what I want...

    So far I modified line 62 in upload.php : I added  'application/pdf' in the list of accepted formats


  • For everyone who encounters the "missing __elgg_ts of __elgg_token fields" error:

    probably you tried to upload more than the (php) upload_max_filesize or the size of the submitted form exceeds (php) post_max_size

    PHP doesn't receive the part of the form with the security tokens.

  • found a problem with the quota function.

    If i set a quota (eg 5mb) and upload some images, so far so good. If i delete the album with the images my quota isn't reduced, so i can't upload new images :(

  • Hi tidypics gang.,

    I've just updated to elgg 1,7 from 1.6. My old tidypic (version 1.05 I think) would not allow an image upload with elgg1.7 (token issue) so I installed the newest tidypics. The plugin looks great but none of the images are showing. All the albums and old comments are there, just not the pics. Thoughts??

    Thanks, Carl

    PS - restoring the older tidypics brings the images back so I know they are still there.

  • @iionly - we have never tried to support animated gifs. If they work using one of the 3 different image libraries, that's great. 

    @LucieP - I agree with Georges

    @Roy - do not understand what you are saying

    @jlxsolutions - if you were using a really, really old version of tidypics, you will need to run an upgrade script. There should be an upgrade link on the Tidypics Administration page. 

  • @Jerome - thanks for the notice on that. Will look into that.

    @atomrocket - you need to run the Tidypics upgrade script. It is located at /mod/tidypics/actions/upgrade.php

  • Ok what I said is that my when I click some picture do an zoom and you can see the photo bigger. I want to know how I click on the picture and go to the next picture.

  • @Roy - Find the following comment in the object/image view: // admin allows downloads so default to inline download link

    You can change the link there

  • @Tidypics Team

    PERFECT!! Thank you!  What a great plugin! Kudos to the tidypics team!!


    Sorry Im new in this... You said that I can chage the link there but what I have to do erase the link or replace for other ???

    is correct this place ?  /public_html/mod/tidypics/views/default/object/image.php

    and also if the user have more than 4 albums between album and album has blank space



  • I'm using the tp_get_latest_photos() to retrieve images, but would like to return a full-size image rather than the thumbnail. Is that possible?

  • I've been having some problems with this mod for some time and I'm not sure why.

    All my other mods work 100% but when I try using this mod and open the administration panel for it, it either tries to open/save the php file or it displays

    "A file permissions error has occurred. Please check the permissions on the script and the directory it is in and try again."

    but I've double and triple checked and the permissions are all correct.

    I double checked and made sure it wasn't incompatible with one of my mods but it does the same thing even in a blank elgg site.

    It's annoying because this is the last mod I need to configure before I can release my website to the public. Any help on fixing the problems would be appreciated.

    Below is an image of the problem:


    I've blanked out my websites name however it depicts the problem clearly.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

  • @Darrell - odd - for some reason your web server is not seeing the file as a php file. I really doubt there is anything unique about the file causing this. What happens if you edit the file and change the content to 

    <?php echo "hello, world"; ?>

    Also have you tried downloading the zip file again and ftp the code again (preferably deleting the original directory before doing that) 

  • @Tidypics Team

    I apologise, I should of stated that beforehand.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled it several times and tried it on multiple different consoles and it still does not work. There is no apparent reason for it but it's not just my PC that is doing it.

    I tried what you said by replacing the admin.php script with the php script to echo "Hello, world!" and it still did the same thing and tried opening it.

    I got a feeling my website is in denial. XD

    I was suggested it's a security issue but I checked with my service provider and I'm whitelisted on all the protocols so it is definitely not that either. It's very bizarre it is choosing to do this and very annoying too.

    Thanks for your help!

  • @Darrell - it sounds like it is definitely not the code. Do you have any .htaccess files in any of the directories between the main elgg directory and this file? Something is causing your web server to think that php files in this directory should be downloaded rather than put through the PHP interpreter. 

    The line in your Apache configuration that causes PHP files to be run is "AddType application/x-httpd-php .php"

    Does this happen for every php file under tidypics?

  • @Tidypics Team

    I checked and there is no more apache configuration files between the main one and the tidypics module. Also it is just the admin.php that is not running which is in the same directory as all the other pages. Other than opening the administration file, the app works but if you try to upload pictures, it says it needs to be configured from the administration panel before pictures can be uploaded.

    One thing I just noticed is as well as my .htaccess file in the main directory there are two other files (not apache but other) and there titled, .htaccessr and .htaccess_dist.
    Do you know if these are needed or are errors causing this? I can not remember if they were there or not before but there in the main directory also.

    I'll send you a message containing the code in the admin.php, .htaccess, .htaccessr and .htaccess_dist. Perhaps though it not a coding error, there is something within the files telling it not to open.

  • I enabled this mod on my elgg 1.7 installation, but when I enter the Tidypics admin area I get this error:

    The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.
    The script had an error or it did not produce any output. If there was an error, you should be able to see it in the error log.
    (I checked the log but it says nothing about it)
  • Hi all, 

    after upgrade from 1.5 to 1.7.1 I can't create album with tidypics plugin (1.6.0). There's an error message: Form is missing __token or __ts fields. Is there a simple way to fix it? Maybe upgrade of this plugin is needed for 1.7.1? I know, that the most actual is now 1.6.6, but there are no upgrade instructions from 1.6.0 :(

  • @Darrell - you could try renaming the admin file to something else and view it directly with your browser and see if that works.

  • @juser - sorry, unable to reproduce and not enough information to figure out what is causing your issue.

  • @mostekkk - no special upgrade instructions for 1.6.6. Just ftp code and then make sure that you refresh the cache (change a plugin order or turn a plugin off and then on). 


  • I have changed the server and everything set properly....but my uploaded images are not displaying...when i copy the image location in browser it just shows me the url not the actual image...

    can u help me how to solve this issue...
