File Manager - Thumbnails & Uploading

Reported by peters@slx-online.biz | April 27th, 2017 @ 04:14 PM | in 2.4.2 (closed)

Site http://sandtoft.slx-online.biz - just got back into this development site after a long break to try out some customer requests for the main site. First I updated to 2.4.1 then went to try some images that I already FTPed. I see the same problem as that in the second part of ticket #1163. When the file manager opens, the thumbnails are all displayed as a default image, as you can see in the screenshot. I then tried to upload one of the files again, using file manager, and got the error 'File type not allowed', also shown in the screenshot (capture.JPG).

I have checked folder permissions, 775 for the image folder as well as the folders in tmp/elfinder and img_cache. Also looked at the other things I tried last time that eventually worked, but no luck this time.

I also went and checked http://www.britishtrolley.org.uk. Here there are blank spaces where the thumbnails should be - capture1.JPG. I also get the 'File type not allowed' error when I try to upload.

In addition, I set up a slide show, but the thumbnails don't show up when you add the files, and the running slide show scrolls through blank images with just the little icon top left.(capture2.JPG / capture3.JPG)

Help please! Thanks.

    2.4.1 January 26th 2017, no patch number shown.
    Now updated to patch 5.

    Image icons still don't display correctly. Drag / drop upload now works, but upload / select folder says no files even though there are. See attached.

    PHP 5.6.24

    I also have an ongoing problem with ckeditor. When I edit the source and save my changes are there. Next time I go into the editor they are stripped out. On the page http://sandtoft.slx-online.biz/events I have created a calendar with lots of custom formatting. Right now it's as it should be, next time I edit it will remove all of my tagging.

    Looking around the web, this seems to be a headache for lots of people, in areas other than Exponent. One suggestion I saw was to add to external/editors/ckeditor/config.js the line - config.allowedContent = true; but this has not made any difference.

    Please, is there a way to stop ckeditor trying to be cleverer than me? Thank you.

    Attached is the code, together with the css which is in base-styles.

    Please could you let me know when you might be able to fix this problem? I am now having real time issues being unable to add my custom css reliably. I do have other pages where I need to customise. Thank you.

    Thanks Dave. That seems to work (editor).

    I did rename the htaccess file in that folder but it made no difference. I still get the panda bear icon. There are thumbnails in the folder. I also renamed any htaccess under tmp but still no change.

    In a drastic move I deleted all htaccess files in all folders under tmp and now I have thumbnails!
