Error creating thumbnail file

Vote 0 Votes

A problem has cropped up in using MovableType, uloading an image into a blog entry. I get the error message about the ability to create a thumbnail file, stating simply: "An error occurred" and "Error creating thumbnail file:"

  • Hi Dennis,

    Happy New Year!

    This error occurs when you upload an image with a wrong extension.

    Take a look at your "Assets" and remove the one that appears as being broken.

    You could find the assets under:
    Assets -> Manage

    Wrong files could be files like this:
    "filename-extension"

    Instead of:
    "filename.extension"

    Enjoy!

    Kind Regards,
    Mihai Bocsaru

  • Thanks Mihai!

    The fix worked perfectly, and I learned something today too!

    Happy New Year to you & MovableType too!

  • Glad that it worked.

    It's been a pleasure!

    Thank you,
    Mihai
