Help:How to get the image displayed on its wiki page

Jump to navigation Jump to search

If you have an ISFDB account and are logged in, you may receive the following error on the wiki page after uploading an image file to the ISFDB server:

Error creating thumbnail: /var/www/html/wiki//bin/ line 4: /usr/local/bin/convert: No such file or directory

This is caused by a software limitation, but can be fixed by adjusting your wiki preferences. First, be sure that the files you're uploading are no more than 600 pixels tall, per ISFDB standards. Then make the following changes:

  1. Click the My Preferences link while logged into the ISFDB wiki (names of link will differ based on the skin you're using)
  2. Switch to the Files tab
  3. Change the value for Limit images on file description pages to: to at least "800x600px" (or larger) using the dropdown menu.
  4. Click the Save button.

If the setting is smaller, e.g. "640x480px", you will get this error because the wiki tries to create and display a thumbnail of an image which is bigger than your setting. If you use "800x600px" (or larger) you will always see the original image.
