I know I have a found a answer to this somewhere on your fourm before, but now I can not seem to find it.
I did a re-install of connections and I can not get the thumbnails to show up (I get the spinning wheel) in the admin area ONLY. The rest of the site they show find. I think it was related to a directory or a file I needed to recreate from scratch, if my memory serves me…
Thanks for your help in advance.

Can you load the manage admin page up in Chrome, hit the F12 key and click the Console tab? What are the errors?06/19/2013 at 9:13 pm #263233TroyGuest
Hey Steve, here is what it gives me:
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 400 (Bad Request) http://www.rockfordwoods.com/wpcontent/plugins/connections/includes/timthu….com/wp-content/connection_images/4700_Hassman_original.jpg&h=54&w=80&zc=206/20/2013 at 2:03 pm #263287
Try setting the permissions of the index.html file in:
/wp-content/connection_images/to 767.07/04/2013 at 3:57 pm #264340TroyGuest
Hey Steven, I set the file to 767 and 777 and I still can get it to rendor the images ;-(07/05/2013 at 12:09 pm #264356
Ok, then it not a permissions issue, back it back to 767. Can I get a temp admin account? I’m pretty certain it is because the DOCUMENT_ROOT can not be located because of the way the server is configured. Well, I don’t need admin access if you know what I’m talking about. If you do add the following to the
timthumb-config.phpfile found here:
This is what you need to add, make sure to change the doc root accordingly:
define ('LOCAL_FILE_BASE_DIRECTORY','/my/doc/root');07/05/2013 at 5:39 pm #264365TroyGuest
I am not sure what “DOCUMENT_ROOT” path I am to use? I can give you access, where should I send the credentials to?

Use the contact link at the bottom of the page. Thanks!07/22/2013 at 12:19 pm #265411
I logged in, but unfortunately plugin files are not editable from the admin on your site. Could you grant a limited temp FTP account too. I only require access to the wp-content folder.07/24/2013 at 8:46 pm #265726
I resolve the issue. Both the
cachefolder and the
index.htmlfile needed to have 767 permissions.
