You can post a url and test login here
Chuck let me back up, as I think this is all the same issue:
Whenever anyone (even I as the admin) posts in a brand new category, the following message is displayed:
Unable to read the format of file: /filepath/photo/data/505/medium/xyz.jpg
When I go to my data folder, there is a new folder (505) that was created today, which is set to 777 automatically. The problem, is that it doesn't create the folders /medium /mini or /thumbs. This is I assume is the reason for the error message.
If I go in and create those folder manually and 777 them all, then the uploads work fine for me. For some reason though, the folders are not being created besides the main folder (505 in this case)
I think if I can solve this problem, it may solve the original problem I was asking about.
While waiting for your response I saw your post about double checking the path, and then going to storage options and reverting, and saving twice. Tried that. No dice.
FYI, this is the path I'm using:
One more update:
If I manually go into each of my folders that was created when I made the categories (505,506,etc) and manually add a thumbs, mini and medium folder, and cmod them all to 777, then it works perfectly.
This leads me to believe my file paths are correct and permissions are correct, but for some reason photopost is not generating these sub-folders on the fly.
