Custom Thumbnail-Settings => images not shown

Post by Connie » 27 Jan 2013, 04:31


for sure I use the newest version, 4.4.6;=)

I noticed that thumbnails are not integrated always in the "Layout: Excerpt / List / Tile / Mosaic / Full" view with the following choices:
- Full content only on first page
- Display Thumbnail, if available
- Image Preference Order: Image attached to the post => Image specified .. => Native => Embedded URL => Image specified "featured..."

I specify a thumbnail through "custom thumbnail field", but the image is not shown! Maybe a conflict with nextgen galleries? But this happens also when there is no nextgen gallery integrated in the post...

See here:
an example: this post: ... assenrand/
defined custom thumbnail: ... 00x133.jpg

I noticed this just now, before the images were integrated always... as far as I remember...

Cheers, Connie

When I try to access ... 00x133.jpg, I get a "403 Forbidden" error.
