When I go to the admin page of my gallery and I try to change the main thumbnail, the old one stayes there. I am using an image that is smalled than 800x800 and than 200kb, and I tried with different browsers. No luck. I could do it in past and now it is not working. I tried with other images too, but no way. I hope someone can help me
Too bad this problem is not going away. I keep trying (using different browsers too) but there is no way to change the thumbnail anymore.. it would be interesting to know if someone is able of doing it at the moment.
Can anyone kindly try changing his gallery thumbnail and report if it is working?
I've been trying for 3 days with no luck. I can understand why it is not a high priority problem since it doesn't affect the forum. It's just too bad my thumbnail isn't very eye-catching right now and no longer reflects my updates :/
I'm sorry about this. I don't know if it's broken or what. I don't know what to do to fix it, but I do know that Jason is trying to hire or has hired a programmer to work on this stuff. Thanks for being patient.
Ok, people have been reporting some problems with uploading the main gallery thumbnail, but give it a shot and see if it works.
Under "Create Main Gallery Thumbnail" hit the "Browse" button. Find where you have saved your thumbnail and select it. Then hit "Upload."
You will be given the opportunity to choose what part of the image you want to be the thumbnail--drag across the image to draw a box on the part you want.
You will probably draw the box over your entire image, since it looks like you want the whole thing to be your thumbnail. There is probably a button like "Accept" or "Create Thumbnail" (I don't remember exactly). Hit the button after you are satisfied with the box you have drawn.
I'm writing this partly from memory, since it's awhile since I uploaded my thumbnail, but give it a try and tell me if it works.
Note: to actually have your gallery show up in the main gallery list, you will need to upload at least two gallery images and write something for your bio as well.
I tried again and still no luck. Beside that, there's a new problem : galleries are not showing at all anymore, meaning that after i click on "gallery" link the page loads but I can see no thumbnails at all (only my "edit gallery" link is appearing eventually).
I'm going to the Dallas workshop, so I might not be around to reply to this thread for awhile. Thanks for being patient guys, and I'll talk to Jason about the galleries and see what the plan is for making things run smoothly.
Any news about gallery problems, Emily? Thumbnails are still not showing when I go to gallery page (only the "edit your gallery" popup shows) and I still can't change the main thumbnail for the gallery.
I can now view the gallery and I also changed main thumbnail no problem but I am having problems updating my images in my account everytime I upload an image it adds 2 of the same image and I cant save my account information.
