View Full Version : Pictures not showing up?
January 18th, 2007, 06:01 PM
Once in a while a user will post an ad, and the pictures do not show up as seen here:
Any idea why this happens and how to rectify?

Did you try checking the path to the images to diagnose the possible problem?

Yes and they usually show up as a the path followed by a single letter as is the case with the example seen below:

I have this issue too. Fortunately it doesn't happen too often and it might be something that the user is doing wrong?

Tech support? Anyone?

I would suggest you ensure your data directories at every level are set to 777. Is safe mode off on your server?
I can not replicate this issue. what image processor are you using?

Safe mode is off and all data directories are 777.
As I said, it's really rare on my system and I'm wondering what happens if a user tries to upload a photo file name that is already in use? The file names appear to be named the same as the user's original photo file name.

The files are definately renamed. I think the issue maybe one that a user uploads a file larger than PHP and maybe PHP is flipping out. Have you tested this? I can not replicate the issue so just throwing out ideas here. The only time I have seen something like this is when permissions are not set correctly

Have you tried increasing php memory to test my theory of it being a php issue?
There is not much to work with here on your report which makes it near impossible to try and replicate something. If someone is trying a file upload and something bombs along the way resulting in the upload being destroyed so I think PHP is spazzing.
In your pp-inc.php below the error_reporting line at the top of the file add this and lets see if giving PHP more memory makes your random non trackable issue go away

I was all set to do this and then I noticed the quotes in the line above. " " " '
Is that last one (') correct?
Please confirm and then I will implement it.
Also, please note that I have only seen this photo problem two or three times in over 700 ads. It's not a big problem for me, but I am willing to help chase it down so that everyone can benefit. It could be as silly as a Macintosh user using the ads.

From the end user:
"Thank you, I realized after the ad went in that I took the picture in an 8 meg format. I will retake and resend a lower meg format today some time. Thank you."

Yep PHP issue and crapping out just what I figured. Yes the line above you can add and yes it is a double quote on end not single.
