HI there,

This seems like the right place to be posting this….i hope so anyway!

Im having problems with my thumbnail not appearing. Ive installed the plug-in and enabled it, uploaded an image and its associated thumbnail and tried to call it using the the following form:

<txp:if_article_list>
<h3><txp:permlink><txp:title /></txp:permlink></h3>
<p class="info"><txp:posted /> by <txp:author /></p>
<txp:wet_article_thumb /> 
<txp:excerpt />
<txp:if_comments>
<p class="read"><txp:permlink>read on...</txp:permlink></p>
<p class="comments"><a href="<txp:permlink />#discuss" >comment (<txp:comments_count />)</a></p>
<txp:else />
<txp:if_comments_allowed><p class="read"><txp:permlink>read on...</txp:permlink></p>
<p class="comments"><a href="<txp:permlink />#discuss">comment (<txp:comments_count /> )</a></p>
<txp:else /></txp:if_comments_allowed>
</txp:if_comments>
</txp:if_article_list>
<txp:if_individual_article>
<txp:article_image />
<h2><txp:title /></h2>
<p><txp:posted /></p>
<txp:article_image />
<txp:body />
<txp:if_comments>
<h2>Make a Comment</h2><div id="comments"><p></p>
</txp:if_comments>
</txp:if_individual_article>

IN my html im calling the form with
<txp:article form="articles" listform="articles" limit="3" />

which seems to be working fine..

The top part of the form deals with my article excerpts on my default page and the bottom part deals with full articles. My full article images work but not my thumbnails.

Any ideas what i could be doing wrong here?

Using image ids is the right way. You definitely activated the plugin, haven’t you?

Re: wet_article_thumb: article thumbnail display

None I’m aware of. This plugin requires nothing more than

  • An image with an existing thumbnail.
  • An article with that image assigned as the article image by image id, more than one image supportted by a comma separated list of ids.
  • A place in an article form.

I’ve prepared a version of the plugin which spits out HTML comments instead of doing nothing whenever there’s a condition which wouldn’t render a thumbnail. Please substitute the existing PHP code (edit the plugin) with this version.

Then, browse to your site’s front end and hunt in the source of the page’s HTML for comments starting with <!-- wet_article_thumb. Share your findings here.

Re: wet_article_thumb: article thumbnail display

Hi Wet,

Your plugin output this code in my source:

<code><!— wet_article_thumb: image file C:\wamp\www\textpattern\images\62t.gif does not exist —> </code>

So i had a look in my images file and indeed the 62 thumbnail want there so i created it manually and put it in the folder andit worked. I then tried uploading and image and its associated thumbnail throught textpattern and testing it in an article and all is well!

I dont know what i was doing wrong in the first place! Its working perfectly now.

Thanks for your help Wet and thanks for writing this plugin!

Re: wet_article_thumb: article thumbnail display

Hi Wet! This plug-in looks just right for me, but I seem to have the same initial problem as elduderino, although I’ve got the thumbnail in the right folder and everything (When I hit the url for the thumb it shows up: ../images/6t.jpg).

In my article-content I have no <code><txp:article_image/></code>, but I’ve written the ID of the image in Advanced Options. I have one form for the listing of the articles (that’s where I want the thumbnail) with <code><txp:wet_article_thumb /></code>, and one for the single article, in which I call the image with <code><txp:article_image/></code>.

Here’s the form I use for the listing of the articles:
<code><div class=“medarbeidere_2”>
<txp:wet_article_thumb />
<h2><txp:permlink><txp:title /></txp:permlink></h2>
</div></code>

I’m using Textpattern version 4.0.3 and I have activated the plug-in. Any thoughts?

Re: wet_article_thumb: article thumbnail display

Hmmm… Had a thought, about how I’d written the ID of the image in Advanced Options. On other occations I’ve actually written images/6.jpg, instead of just the number. Don’t know why. But I tried with just the ID-number 6, and behold! It works! Hope I didn’t waste anybody’s time with this stupid problem.

Re: wet_article_thumb: article thumbnail display

To clarify for posterity: wet_article_thumb requires only numbers in the “Advanced Options” image field. Either just a single one, or multiple numbers separated by commas. No spaces, no alpha characters, no file names. It uses the first image’s thumbnail.

Valid:

  • 42
  • 8,15,47,11

Invalid:

  • 42.jpg
  • /images/8t.pjg,/images/15t.gif

Re: wet_article_thumb: article thumbnail display

v0.4, adding rel and link_class attributes due to popular requests. Get it while it’s still useful, as core code is catching up
