    I just tried out the 1.7.0 Beta1 and the album icon shows as "No Images" for some previously loaded albums.  The images in album count shows up as zero.  However, all  images show up in the slideshow.  With my test site, I just added a new album with 1.6.8 and it was fine.  When I upgraded to 1.7.0 Beta1, I got the "No Images" symptom.  I did notice that the files were stored in the elgg data area under the 2010 directory,  not the 2011 directory.  I am using Elgg 1.7.6 and also Elgg 1.7.7.  I am  viewing the albums using Firefox.

  • @calm - yes, it is compatible with 1.7.6

    @emanuel - see the documentation

    @spmorty - the upgrade button is on the Tidypics Administration page. If it does not show, you don't need to upgrade

    @flunkyou2 - your Apache has mod_security turned on with it set to reject urls/paths being passed in post requests.


  • @Pkjackson - yes, there is a widget for that

    @caragadatacenter - no, there is no integration with 3rd party video sites

    @rohonupe99 - there is only a filter on image size (in MB)

    @fraksken - that feature is already there

  • @Stan - did you run the upgrade script?

  • @Tidypics Team

    No, I did not run the upgrade script.  I did not find the installation instructions.  I see now they are on 1.7.0 beta1 discussion.


  • @Tidypics Team

    There is no upgrade option on the Tidypics Admin page.  Reordering a plugin helped, but I still have an album that shows photos on the slideshow that don't show up on the album.  Should I remove all the previous version files before copying the new files over?

  • @ Tidypics Team

    Sorry for last question. Didn't see the link, reported to me, and I 'forgot' to check... Sorry again

    Since it's a public netwerk site, lots of people might want to put 'unclean' (read porn) pictures on there. I'd like to avoid the trouble of going trough every photo album every few hours. Is there not a possibility to make an approval system? Every picture that gets uploaded comes into an administrator folder, administrators approve or deny the pictures.
    Or perhaps we can find out how facebook keeps those pictures out ...

    Short: Picture approval system for unwanted pictures. Admins approve or deny picture before publication.


  • I have a 1.7.7 test site that only shows a question mark when I upload a photo.  I have tried to find the answer, but failed so far... anyone got a quick pointer for me please?

  • Ah... in answer to my oun issue, I discovered that the settings did not contain the default settings for image and thumbnail sizes... fixed this and all ok now.

  • i just uploaded a tall image and the error code was produced - 'too many pixels'..

    how many pixels is too many?

    is there a simple way to edit this limit?


  • I have just installed Elgg with the Tidypics plugin.  I have selected Elgg 1.7.6 because it is the latest version with French translation available.  When the site's default language is English, the photo gallery works beautifully.  However, when I switch the site's default language to French, the photos do not show up.

    Is there special configuration I need to do to get Tidypics to works in French?  Is this a bug?  I am new to Elgg so if there is any extra information I can provide, let me know.


  • Just got back from vacation.  Since there was no feedback in 11 days, I have chased the problem myself and found the root cause.  As it turns out, there is a bug in the French translation.  The file languages/fr.php contains a byte order mark known as BOM.  When executing this file, this BOM causes three characters (0xef, 0xbb, 0xbf) to be pushed to content before the actual image.  What I have done for now is used a hexadecimal editor to remove the BOM out of that file and now Tidypics works beautifully in both English and French.

    I will try to report my finding on elgg.fr as well.
