Recommended Posts

Hi All - my post thumbnails are not showing up in magazine mode. I do have the box checked "In post clips" under Blogs and Posts area. Any ideas? Also, how do I edit the 5 sections in the footer area? site is: www.powerconcretemixers.com Thanks!

How are u uploading thumb? As for footer, you need to go to widget area and select 5 column footer. Its empty but the moment u add 1 widget, the existing footer defaults will be over-ridden

via amazon API. Funny thing is that it works in standard blog mode but not in magazine blog layout mode... Thanks for the tip on the footer!

Interesting. I just imported my blogger blog over to Wordpress and just learned of an Auto Post Thumbnail generator plugin that populated my posts without having to manually add Feature Thumbs as per Pagelines. Just ran it and it worked like a charm and I'm running Mag Style too. You might wanna look into that as another option.

Have you enabled thumbs on 'clips'?

Andrew - yes, have that enabled and still not showing up. Carl - sure that would be great. What's the plugin name?

exactly that, "Auto Post Thumbnail". You need to execute the "Generate Thumbnails" button once installed...it then processes in a few minutes (depending on number of posts)

Carl - I tried that and it's still not working. Any other ideas guys?

Shot in the dark here...go to Wordpress Settings and click on Media Settings..check over the image sizes...any chance the thumbnail settings are empty? Not even sure that would do it, but worth a look.

Thanks for your post Carl. They are set to 150 x 150. Darn I was hoping that was it!

Ok, I'm done for solutions. Beyond my knowledge base. However, I will say this. It appears your images are located in your images folder and not in the wp-contents/upload folder. I think that could quite conceivably be your problem but I'll leave that one for the experts...

Wired thing is...is that when I'm in regular blog layout mode, the thumbs show up just fine, but not in magazine blog layout mode. Oh well, thanks for trying Carl. I appreciate. BTW, who are the experts around these parts and how do I get them engaged?

Hi Adam, Here's another "give it a shot" ideas. I've had a few issues with the Post Page the last few days. One of the things I found I had to do was to go to the Page settings, and select your designated Blog (Posts) page and click Edit. In the Page Attributes area of the Pagelines (right hand side) select a different template than the one you have selected. Click update. Then select the original template (which should be "Default") you had and again click update. Check the Blog page again for the thumbnails.

Carl, I'll give you credit man, you're trying. I appreciate it. This didn't work either. Do you know file I should look at to determine where it's looking for the thumbnail files in Magazine mode?

When you upload them via Amazon API what does the data end up looking like? Usually images that aren't attached via the "featured image" way are done so with custom fields manually. Check your custom fields and see if there is a value for thumbs and we can get into the template.postloop.php file and try and modify it with that value.
