In the configuration I have the box check to allow audio in place of video to the galleries, but when I just tried to do so I got the message:

Code

An error has occurred
You did not upload a thumbnail and we failed to generate one automatically.
Is there something I'm missing?

… is the image the software automatically generates if no image has been identified.

Can you check your default theme to see if it is there? If it is, I'm afraid I will readily admit that I am a bit lost as to how to resolve the issue.


Take my advice. I'm not using it!

What was the file extension you were uploading? (e.g. mp3)

Is  t just me or does anyone else notice the text in the Code box  (from the first post) runs off to the right where I can't finish reading it?

I had mentioned this to Chris some time back and he responded that we neded to use codebox instead of code which then creates a scroller IIRC. But the Code button is currently generating a codebox so I wonder if this is broken or if perhaps some just type code instead of using the button. I created the codebox below and you can see that it has a horizontal scroller when you click in the box.

Example:

Is it just me or does anyone else notice the text in the Code box;(from the first post) runs off to the right where I can't finish reading it?

Ok, that would be me, the guilty party, gents.  Since the WYSIWYG editor is not the most friendly with my screen reader, I use the standard editor, and comcode for any markup.  I was not aware of the problem with the "code" tag, and had not read the thread about having to use the "codebox" tag.

Hardly a guilty party, chipster; more like an innocent victim. I remember that this was driving me crazy when I first ran accross it. Glad that we got it sorted.
