Problems in uploading images

Postby ekiekow » Tue Sep 03, 2013 11:37 am

Hi, I have a problem, everytime I try to upload an image, occurs three problems:

1 -) Sometimes this message appears:
"Invalid image format for the title in the header of the homepage. Acceptable formats are. Gif,. Jpg or. Png. Verify settings mime_type, permission and owner of folder and file size allowed."

2 -) Other times appears:
"manager.setup.journalThumbnailInvalid # # # #"

3 -) When I put a cover on the cover of an issue does not appear even though enabled to appear on the cover editions.

What would be the problem?

Hi ekiekow,

Please search the forum; there are lots of threads about MIME type detection. You'll have to find out what strategy your server supports and whether it's properly configured.

There are several problems with my journal site,
1) I am using OJS 3.0 Alpha 1, and I cannot upload any image document (the image file is a JPG with 880 KB) at Management -> Website Settings -> Appearance, and add image button does not work. Dragging the file will upload it, but the system shows that no image file was uploaded.The error was: "No file uploaded or invalid file type". I could see the progress of upload, but eventually it is not very helpful nor successful.
2) Is it about the beta version of the software? Our webmaster decided to install this version, which looks great, and I would love to provide additional data to make it operational. Our journal has not started yet.
Thank you.

Hi Barbaros,

OJS 3.0 Alpha 1 is very new and was a community release designed to show OJS users what the next version of OJS was going to look like. It probably has bugs in it, and my recommendation would be to not use it for a production journal just yet. The first full release of OJS will probably happen this spring.

However, there are a few reasons why images might not upload. You may want to ask your server administrator to look in the system logs for an error message. It could be related to directory permissions, or file sizes, or a general PHP problem. Or, you found a bug in OJS.
