Hello!

I am using the Presstige theme and the default homepage slider.

http://farmcafe.org/wordpress/

The images do not appear--I see a broken link icon instead. The captions for each image appear correctly.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you.
Ann

I can see that it is trying to load the images and they are indeed there.


It looks like your host is having some issues with the timthumb script. Can you make sure the permissions on the theme's cache folder are writable by the server?

The folder: wp-content/themes/presstige/cache/ should be at least 755 or 777.

Thank you. The permissions on that directory was 755. I changed it to 777 just in case. But that did not change anything. Any other ideas of what could be keeping these images from showing up?

one other thing that may be related--

one the homepage I have the latest posts listed. I would like to have the post thumbnail appear there (the shortcode is set to "true" for thumbnails), but they never appear. Instead, I see the broken image icon. In the post, the image is set to be a "featured image"; fullsize; and I insert into the post.

are these related issues?

Thanks again,

Yes, these are related issues. I'm sorry you're having problems. If you'd like to PM me your wp-admin info I'll be glad to run some tests and see what might be the issue.

Hi Casey,
We have had several strange issues with the farmcafe.org site--unrelated to the theme. I suspect a virus or some problem with the isp. In any case, I am rebuilding the site with a new ISP but am having the same problems I described in my earlier post above--when I built the site the first time. Maybe related to the tilde in the temp url? I followed these steps to fix the timthumb code, but to no avail:

I am not sure what you did to fix it the first time, but can you do it again? wink

The temp site that is having this issue is here:
http://66.147.244.136/~farmcafe/

The thumb for the recent posts image is "not found". The permissions on the cache folder are 0777.

Thanks,
Ann

ok, seems all I need to do it contact you and then I fix the problem! Please disregard my message, all is well. It was the tilde problem, I just had the document root defined incorrectly. http://elementdesignllc.com/2012/01/how-to-fix-timthumb-using-a-virtual-directory-url-contains-tildes/
