Unfortunately I am experiencing problems with the registration / login system. For example, if I log in to the forums or on the VBA portal page, the PP system does not see me as logged in, and vice versa. Also, I cannot log in to teh PP admin system in order to complete my set-up / configuration.
I'm sure that this must be a common problem with new installations. Can anyone point me to a thread which covers this?
Edit your config-int.php file and in the $vbpath variable make sure to correct it to the proper server path to your forum. Basically we can not find the global.php of vb since the last step of install the server path was wrong.
Yeah - it worked once I turned off all the image protection options. Strange though - the path to the watermark was correct ... Never mind: i'll come back to this another time.
The only glitch left is a dump of warning messages when you upload a photo. The warnings appear only fleetingly, so I can't cut and paste them here. They do not seem to affect the upload function, which is working ok. They just don't look good for the user. Again, is this common?
Many thanks for your help.

I would suggest checking your uploads and data paths and ensuring they are correct as I posted above in Admin => Global Options. Then in Admin => Storage Options revert the path twice to load the new path you had entered in global options. Make sure your uploads and data directories at every level are 777.
Hmmmm. The registration problem has returned today, after a few days of ok operation.
I've removed the link to the gallery from my site, so as not to annoy the users. I'll try to reinstall from scratch at the weekend.
The photopost system does seem to do some odd things. One of them is that removal of www from URLs. I've noticed that this has thrown Google ...
I'll get into this again when I have time at the weekend.
Here are some clues. Maybe you can work out what the problem is.
1) I just tried to upload a JPEG (an action which previously worked ok), and got the following error / warning messages:
Warning: imagecreatefrompng(): '/kunden/homepages/46/d157757003/htdocs/photopost/watermark.php' is not a valid PNG file in /homepages/46/d157757003/htdocs/photopost/image-inc.php on line 190

2.) When I log into the forums and then move to the gallery, i need to log in to the gallery. But then when I move back to the forums, I appear as an unregistered user, although I can see that I am already logged in (i.e. the system doesn't recognise that it's me). I need to relog in before I can log out, if you see what I mean. Now, I have checked all the paths and URLs in photopost, and they seem to be fine. I've reverted the storage options, etc. They're correct.
Regarding the watermark, I just switched it off. I don't actually have a watermark.png file. I suppose it's down to me to create one? That resolved the upload issue.
I updated the cookie domain as you suggested (it was blank and I made it .congeralley.com). This seems to have cleared up most of the registration problem. Although I notice that if you log into the forum and then go to the gallery, you need to hit refresh on the browser before it recognises you ...
But not the other way around. i.e. if you log out of everything, then log in to Photopost, and then navigate to the forums, the forum recognises that you are logged in. Is there maybe one thing left to update ...?
