  • ImageMagick getting used or not?

    When I check for ImageMagick in the "Testing ImageMagick Commandline" field I get the following status message:

    Version: ImageMagick 6.4.8 2009-01-01 Q16 OpenMP http://www.imagemagick.org Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2009 ImageMagick Studio LLC Unable to run ImageMagick. Please check the path.

    I know that the path is correct and Tidypics seems to find convert as it wouldn't show version information otherwise. Nonetheless, there seems to be a problem with running it.

    Tidypics Server analysis says:

    exec() is enabled.

    I've set to use ImageMagick CmdLine. Is there are way to find out if ImageMagick gets used or does Tidypics falls back to GD automatically if ImageMagick is not available?

  • ok here's what the error log tells me:

    [03-May-2010 14:05:49] WARNING: 2010-05-03 14:05:49 (PDT): "array_merge() [<a href='function.array-merge'>function.array-merge</a>]: Argument #1 is not an array" in file /home/manacim/public_html/engine/lib/elgglib.php (line 31)

  • @iionly - Tidypics does not fallback to GD automatically

    @Cim - the message in the error log should be related to the error_log that you added. Anything else?

  • @Tidypics Team:

    Thanks, I think I've found the explanation for the strange status message. ImageMagick's changelog lists for version 6.4.9-9 a fix for the "Convert returns MagickFalse for the -version option (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=13230)" bug. So version 6.4.8 that's installed on my site's server probably just returns the wrong status even if the convert command is usable by tidypics for resizing.

  • hello,

    Where disable the slideshow? And where delete link in the menu in tidypics.

    Thanks.

  • I am running elgg v.1.7.1.  I tried add photo to my album.  After I clicked browse button, select a jpeg file (size is 40KB) and click save button, I got error message "Admin of this site has not set photo album settings."  When I checked my photo album, I can see the image file is shown with a question marks.  Can anyone please help to advise me how to fix these problems?

    @hakeem

    Change permission for 777 file "assets" in directory root the site.

  • Where disable the slideshow? And where delete link in the menu in tidypics.

    My solution : Install plugin "tidypics_lightbox".

    I like lightbox...

     

     

  • @Cim - nothing in the log related to your issue. Sorry.

  • just tried to add it to my 1.7 install and it throws a 'misconfigured plugin' error.

    any thoughts? thanks-

  • @MikeBlah - user error - follow the instructions included in the error message and check the Elgg wiki

  • I would like to use the functionality of the "next" button on the image view screen as an onclick property of the image. That way, when the user clicks on the image, they get the next one, rather than the current one opened up in a browser window. However, I cannot find the file where the "next" button exists. Can you provide some guidance? Thanks.

  • HI - Im running the latest version of tidypic on 1.7, ubuntu and mysql, and it says that the plug-in is misconfigured - have you come acros this before?

     

     

  • Hi,

    I don't know if that has been already discussed,

    I noticed that IPTC fields of images are being striped out on image upload. Is that possible to retain them, even with images that has been resized by gd or imagemagik?

    thanks

  • How does the RSS feeds work in this plugin ??

  • JKasting is correct!

    When your on the individual picture page, please set it that when I click the main picture, it goes to the next picture, not open in a plain window.

    How do I get the Slideshow to work?

    By the way, GREAT PLUGIN! Thanx!

  • @JKasting - there is a 'tp_thumbnail_link', 'image' plugin hook that is sent with the current link. You can register for that and return the link for the next image. This will be easier to do in the next version that has manual ordering of images.

  • @rufuz - we do not strip EXIF information. The thumbnails do not have it though. 

    @Sim2K - click on the RSS link to get the RSS feed. To get the slideshow, click on the slideshow link.

  • Ok thanks you're right.

    I suppose for thumbs you mean all kind of sizes showed in the gallery,  max included.
    Original images are stored in the server and have their EXIF and IPTC intact. In my particular case is crucial to retrieve them. It's good, then, that it's possible, but a bit akward to find and pick originals into the server if compared to a simple drag&drop operation from the brower gallery.

    I also noticed that smaller images are enlarged to the max allowed size set in the admin panel. In order to avoid blurred images, is that possible to retain the size of smaller images?

     

    thanks - as always - for your prompt response!

     

    ricc.

  • hello, i have a problem with the viewing, when i create an album and upload pictures on it and does uploads them on to the server but i see a QUESTION MARK rather than the image. So please help me out! Am using GD and Version 1.7.1. Also when i try tagging it opens up only the image and am unable to do so. By the way its an amazing appreciable module.

  • I only started using Elgg a couple of days ago, but everything seems fairly straight forward. However, I'm having some major problems with Tidypics. When I upload images it says Admin have not set album settings, and upload appears to fail. When you look in the album there is a question mark icon in place of the image. However, if you click the question mark it opens the real image, and the real image can also be downloaded by clicking the link. Tagging works too. If I try to save settings in the admin page, it goes to a page saying I am not authorised to view that page (generated by server). However, I have changed permissions on just about everything so I can't see why I'm not authorised. Anyone come across this before?

  • The image thumbnails in the "Latest Photos" widget on the profile pages are ordered in a rather strange fashion on my site. There's always a row with 3 thumbnails, then only 1 thumbnail in the next row, then 3 again...

    Is is possible to "repair" this strange ordering by changing something in the CSS file? I've not found out yet what needs to be changed. Any ideas?

  • @rufuz - it is difficult to get the album view to look right if the thumbnails are different sizes.

    @Athar - please read the documentation and help that comes with Tidypics.

    @Simon - turn off izap videos if you are using that and see if it works. There is some lazy code in that plugin that causes problems.

    @iionly - will take a look at that - have an idea what it might be

  • no, don't have izap enabled. Have done a clean install of elgg and tidypics which all went fine (few problems last time). But had similar problem with another plugin. I think the message saying I'm not authorised is because of my server. Its the same message it generates for directories that don't have an index page. Not sure theres much I can do about it. May have to wait for a different photo plugin to come along. I reckon if I coud set it to use imagemajik instead of gd it might work without the need to change the admin settings, but that may be a little hopefull.
