Okay, So I am very new at this and I may have messed something up. So when I first downloaded indexhibit and everything to Filezilla and then downloaded it it went through fine, but there is no way for me to upload images. I tried to look at tutorials to see if I was just going to the wrong place on the site, but then I realized that I was just missing the button that said "upload image". So I double checked my steps through the instructions and I realized that maybe I didnt change the permissions to 777 where I needed too, so I looked up and found out how to properly do that. Then I replaced the files in filezilla but now there is still no option for me to upload images. Im wondering if I somehow need to uninstall it from the database and reinstall it? And if so, how? Or what am I actually supposed to do? Please help :(.

Hello.

Login to your backend, edit an exhibit and click the "up" arrow.
You can then Add Files and click the Upload button to upload your media.

oh, okay. What is the maximum file size for an image? It is saying it is too big.

Hey Brigil

If you access and edit your Options.php file, which is located here: ndxzsite > config folder, on line 13 there should be the line:

$default['maxsize'] =

Change the max file size to 1000 (1mb)

So it should read - $default['maxsize'] = 1000

Now upload options.php again using your FTP program and hpefully you shouldnt have any problems....but bear in mind that you files shouldn't really be any larger than 1mb anyway, as thats loading-heavy for browsers.

awesome! okay, one last question. So I made "illustrations" and then made new pages under it for different illustrations. But, when I go to illustrations, I see all of my thumbnails (all is well) and then when I click a thumbnail it first goes to another thumbnail and then I have to click again to see the full size image. How do I omit the unnecessary middle thumbnail?

I would like this to just open to a full image when you click on the link on the side, not a thumbnail and then a full image. also, I cant get my links to show up properly on the side, hah. I am very new at indexhibit and am still pretty confused.

Ok... edit the exhibit, click exhibit options, and click-select either Overlay or Permalinks.

arsondpi, you're great. I didn't know that the size of the images could be fixed, now are MUCH better in quality and I only set 500kbs.

Thanks a lot.

Hi, so I had the same problem with the image size being too large and I went and changed it to $default['maxsize'] = 1000 like you said and now I can't get the file to reupload. I have tried hitting upload and and it says uploading then after uploading it says being edited, but it won't progress from there. When I go to my website it now says database not installed. Can you help me?

A 1Mb image is huge. You server could be having problems handling that.
Also you should check this thread for the database not installed error message indexhibit.org/forum/thread/17657/

So I called my server and they said that the there is somehow a break down in the files and to reinstall indexhibit. I deleted and reinstalled indexhibit files in filezilla and now my website daniellekiser.com is coming up fine, but I can't log in to my page. At first it says login err and then when I try to retrieve my password and username with my email it says:
Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Bad parameters to mail() function, mail not sent. in /home/content/79/10266679/html/ndxzstudio/lib/mail.php on line 155

How can I solve this, and is there another way to upload files in filezilla to where it doesn't mess everything up when I change one thing?

Before you do anything else, backup your site. I'm afraid that you accidentally damaged a file. Always be very careful editing files directly on your server.

Then, reupload /ndxzsite/config/options.php to a fresh version (you can adjust the upload limit after things are functioning again).

On the plugins page there is a password reset script that can resolve the login issue.

I tried that and it now says
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 261900 bytes) in /home/content/79/10266679/html/ndxzstudio/common.php on line 296

Because you reuploaded the config.php file too, right? This is what I'm talking about...you have to be careful.

You need to edit the config.php file manually now with your database connection info. Or, just start over...reinstall...

Okay I have reinstalled, it allows me to choose a language, to the next page i type in the database information, and then it directs me to the next page to login. I tried doing the Reset v2 like the directions and when I go to the webpage daniellekiser.com/ndxzstudio/… it says page not found
What do I do?

Thank you for all your help, I am new to all of this!

Then you haven't uploaded the script to the right directory.
Verify that it's where it should be with your ftp application.

It worked! What it was is that I had downloaded the reset file multiple times and so it was downloading as reset2-4.php so when I added that to the website address it worked! Thank you!

This thread is kind of unfocused now and seems to be resolved - I'm going to close it.
