When I just bought vbGallery last week because it looked like it would have everything I need. Here are the issues I am facing.
1) When I go to the Members area the download says the version is 1.0.3, yet shouldn't it be 2.0? The file I downloaded and had installed on my server is version 2.0 but I'm wondering why that doesn't show up in my Members area should I need to download it again.
2) Search page is blank despite making the edits Zachariah stated to make in another thread. I have attached a copy of my modified search.php file as a text file to another thread in the Beta section.
3) Uploads are not working right. On large dimension photos (3000x3000 for example) even if the file size is small (600kb) the upload fails with a blank page where IE7 is telling me I've lost connection to the internet, I'm not getting an error report back.
Is there a phone number for support or assistance or should I just do what I'm doing now, post a topic and hope for the best?
Now with regard to the upload would you mind visiting my forum at http://www.caymanclub.net and go into the gallery and try to upload an image that has a file size of say 600-800kb and see what happens to you then? I don't know how else to show you that it isn't working.
My ISP tech installed GD for processing images. As far as the PHP Max Post Size or PHP Maximum Upload I don't know. As I understand it, that's in the PHP.ini file, if you tell me where that is kept on the server I could ftp or ssh in and try to find it and look it up or change it if needed. I'm new the Linux/Apache/PHP/MySQL world so forgive what is probably an obvious question.
Try switching from GD to Imagemagick. I had a similar problem with vBulletin attachments until I switched over. I opened a vBulletin ticket which resulted in their "working" on the GD issue for the next release.
