Re: Solution for Thumbnail loading bug

is there a way to force individual photos that become corrupted to regenerate?

I can clear the image cache which fixes some photos but it usually then corrupts a different photo

Any explanation as to why the image corruption occurs?

Re: Solution for Thumbnail loading bug

Well moving the code around seems to be helping - there's still some pixelated thumbnails but less and the system seems to be updating thumbnails much faster then before

Re: Solution for Thumbnail loading bug

OK well I have both those problems right now - a few Pixelated images and some thumbails just not being produced at all. So I should remove or comment out the following in i.php and then copy the same thing into the end of the user_setup.php file? if (!defined('LOOPBACK_HOST_HEADER')) { define('LOOP...

Re: PHP script to pre-cache all your images

I am not quite sure what the purpose of this script is to the average user? Since this script requires that you have console access to your server, its not for the average user... :( When you clear the cache in Koken via the Admin controls panels does it not start to generate a new set of cached im...

Re: The theme is Not able to contact Koken's API. Ensure That your host is not blocking loopbacks Topic is solved

I am using what I believe is the lastest version of Koken - 0.21.2 ?

It tells me there is no new updates

I will ask my Hosting company with regards to the PHP version - but it is a shared server - not sure if it can be updated just for myself

Re: PHP script to pre-cache all your images

You can find it here : https://github.com/sylvaindeloux/koken-cache-warmup It’s a simple script with a basic workflow : - lists all your images from the database - generates all formats URLs for each image - call the image with the public URL ...

Re: Solution for Thumbnail loading bug

OK so what is the Thumbnail Loading Bug anyway? I have two problems with Thumbnails - either they don't load at all or some load just fine but a few are pixelated ? I have followed the link back to the original thread but the person who wrote it didn't actually state what was the problem. All I know...

Re: Koken Community Support!

Thanks for setting this forum up - Proper forum software helps create a community - What the developers at Koken put together as far as online helps was a pretty rubbish system.

Proper forum software makes it much easier to find answers to problems

Re: Solution for Thumbnail loading bug

Is it possible to simply have downloadable copies of the various .PHP files that need changing instead of us non programmers having to go into various file like i.php and koken.php and edit them ourselves and maybe mess something else up ? I know how to do things like FTP to the server, etc but once...

Re: Images not loading + API error when trying to login to admin Topic is solved

I'm also having problem with Koken but more with frontend then the backend admin side of things Could be a possible problem with your DNS? I think rather then using the terms localhost - koken calls the full domain name of your website and thus if it's not reaching your website perfectly it screws t...
