This is my first time using this form of communicating. Hopefully I'll do it right...
Thanks so much for your help!
Do you have any ideas about how to fix the problems with thumbnails? I've looked around but can't find anythiing in the cpanel.
Also, are there really sysop privileges? I don't seem to see any difference when I log on as me or my wife.
Can you add Proprietor to my list of user ids?
I suppose I need a lesson in how to be an Administrator, sometime...
Thanks for your help!
- Sorry I've taken so long to reply. You should be able to enable thumbnails by editing your LocalSettings.php file. The relevant information can be found in the MediaWiki manual here. You basically want to make sure
$wgUseImageResizeis set to true. If that doesn't resolve the issue, let me know. As for sysop privileges, I do show you've got them. It honestly doesn't give you a whole lot more privilege than normal users. The major difference is you have a few extra tab commands across the top, like protect and delete. You also have a few extra special pages available to you from Special:Specialpages. Cheers! — Joey (talk·edits) 14:07, 30 March 2007 (MDT)

$wgUseImageResizecode IS set to true. I'm just not sure there is a proper file hierarchy in existence. The gallery of uploads comes back with the following error message for each thumbnail: Error creating thumbnail: /usr/bin/convert: Unrecognized option (-thumbnail). I can't find the bin subdirectory to see if there is a convert option there.Steve (talk·edits) 01:18, 31 March 2007 (MDT)

- Steve, there's a known solution for that problem. You can resolve the issue by editing your public_html/includes/Image.php file. Do a search for "-thumbnail" (without quotes) and replace it with "-resize" (without quotes). Let me know if this fixes the issue or you have any additional questions.
