[Elgg 1.5-1.12 & 2.X - 4.X: Tidypics] v1.8.1beta12

Release Notes


  • Added placeholder images to be displayed in case no images have been uploaded to an album yet in the image sizes previously missing,
  • On deletion of an album the corresponding album folder in data directory gets deleted and no longer the (empty) album folder remains,
  • Flash uploader fixed in the case of group albums when someone else than the album creator wants to upload images to a group album,
  • Navigation arrows hidden if an album contains only a single image,
  • Correction of title of group pages "Most recent albums" widget,
  • "View all" link in Latest Photos widget on profile pages working for site visitors not logged in,
  • Fixed list of offered existing albums to select from for image uploads when in group context,
  • Fixed display of image and album gallery pages when images or albums exist that belong to groups with restricted access (The images or albums shown in the gallery pages depend on the viewing user having the necessary right for viewing depending on the access level defined for these albums including the images within these albums. For example a user gets to see all albums with "public" access level regardless if logged in or not. But if you set the access level "public" or "logged in" for a group album this results in even a non-group member being able to get access to such albums and their content. But if the group itself is a restricted group certain problems arise when this group contains "public" or "logged-in" content. In case of the gallery views within Tidypics the outcome is a fatal error occuring on these pages. This fix avoids the fatal error from happening. Still the group images and albums of restricted albums are included in the listings due to the access level set for them. If you don't want any albums or images of restricted groups to be seen by non-group-members you must set the access level of these albums to the corresponding group's level).
  • @stoffal: possibly an issue with permissions of the data directory. Can you upload profile images and images using the bundled files plugin? If yes, the data directory permissions are not the problem. But if this also fails, the permissions of the data directory are wrong (does not allow files to get saved).

    Which version of Tidypics do you have installed? Is it the latest version (1.8.1beta12)? If not, this might explain the problem, because if you use a version older than 1.8.1beta6 it won't work on Elgg version newer than 1.8.15.

    Have you checked if there might be a conflict with another 3rd party plugin installed on your site yet?

  • @stoffal: and you might need to increase upload_max_filesize and post_maxsize in your .htaccess. If you use the GD image library for the image resizing in Tidypics you might also want to increase memory_limit to allow for handling of larger image files.

  • @iionly: i can upload and update profile images. i use the latest version 1.8.1beta12 of this plugin.

    can you see in this screenshot if settings are ok


  • @iionly: i disabled all other plug-ins but didn't help

  • @stoffal: the values of the php variables seem okay. upload_max_filesize of 200 MB should be more than enough for Tidypics. And post_max_size of 200MB should also be enough for Tidypics (though in general post_max_size should be set larger than upload_max_filesize to allow for additional overhead in case upload_max_filesize is used up to the limit).

    Which image library have you selected on the "Einstellungen" tab? Imagick php extension will not work. GD library is installed on your server and if the imagick executables are available on your server is not possible to say from the server info tab. GD library should work though (as it's also used on profile image upload).

    I have to admit that I'm out of ideas at the moment. Do you see any error or warning entries in the server logs at the time you upload images?
