DOH!! thanks a ton chuck, that was it.
So far so good, except for uploading images. It does work, if i use a small image like an icon, but trying to upload a larger image, it give me the geometry error 126.... So I went in and changed
Thumbnail image max width and height in pixels (from 100 to 400) and then re-uploaded the image, and that worked, but it was huge obviously and threw the page off. Is there a standard, or recommended setting I should use to allow decent file upload sizes, but not expand the viewing area? I dont see the option for supersize pics either, but that may be a setting I havent found yet.
thanks for all the help
