Make sure that your permissions are ok in order your thumbnails cache to be writable.

Several of us are attending a class building sites with Joomla! and we are using SIG as it has been a great solution. However we are having issues with thumbnails not displaying. www.as-newmedia.com/mcwd/index.php/photography/photojournalism
Students have different results. This did not work for one student using 1.6 and now after upgrading to 1.7 same problem occurs for another see link above. After reading the forums no clear solution. No spaces, special characters in title, permissions to folder 755 but images set 644. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thank you in advance - Bill

I solved my issue of thumbnails not showing by doing this...

Do NOT have any spaces in the original files names.

As soon as I removed spcaes in the image names, VOILA! thumbs working correctly.

So if your thumbs aint working, check your image files and remove spaces.

Hope this helps someone.

Hi everybody!

I have the same problem with this issue and i just found out why it's happening.
If you have more than 30 images in the folder (from the images album you're trying to show) then the popup engine PrettyPhoto doesn't show any thumbnails at the bottom.

Any fix for it? Since we payed the extension, we never expected there would be a problem like that. We have many albums with 40-50 images in it and we need this popup presentation.

Many thanks.

Hi all, I had the same problem with the plugin. How did I solve it:

In fact it was a problem with permissions. I read in another posts that the cache/ folder need to be with the correct permissions for the plugin to create thumbnails. Yes and it was and still wasn't working, so I went into the cache/ folder itself and there was a folder named jw_simpleImageGallery. After changing the permission on this folder to the correct one, whoila. Everything is working fine now. Thanks

I decided to register and post here just because I spent hours looking for a solution and finally getting one.

My thumbnails were blank but when clicked on would open the image properly. I checked the permissions of the cache folder and plugins folder and everything was correct.

Then I read a post that mentioned about the htaccess file. The solution here was to remove the cache from the folders that are disallowed by htaccess. So instead of doing that for the whole cache folder I added this line to my htaccess file

RewriteRule ^cache\/jw_simpleImageGallery/ - [L]


This worked for me.
