Problem Description:

When attempting to create a gallery using the OCMX Gallery Manager, images may fail on upload or not display if your server permissions are not set or your files are too large.

Answer:

  1. Verify your images do not exceed the file size limit noted in the upload interface. For most installs, the limit is 2MB. You can optimize images by saving them as JPGs and resizing them down to the theme specs. See your theme documentation “Create Your Content” for recommended image sizes. In general, images less than 2000pixels are best.
  2. Verify the permissions on the upload folder are correct. Connect to your server via FTP and set the following to 777 (full rights)
    wp-content/uploads/ocmx-gallery/thumbs/
    wp-content/uploads/ocmx-gallery/small/
    wp-content/uploads/ocmx-gallery/large/
