« on: February 02, 2008, 09:58:11 pm »

Im having issues uploading images.

 The following uploads encountered errors:
File Uploads:
File Name/URL   Error Message
1. footerbg3.gif   Not a GD extension.

the settings were set to All files orginally and i then i changed it to be more specific gif/jpg/jpeg/png/tif/psd/bmp and it still does not work.

Means you don't have gif support enabled in your GD2 installation. Options:

Avoid using .gif files
Ask your host to enable gif support for GD2
See if ImageMagick is available instead.

To use ImageMagick you need to refer to your hosting details to see if it is available and if so what the path to use is. You then enter this information in config. If it's not installed you can't use it.

There is a big difference between using gif files in a website and being able to process them on the server. For example, you can download windows programs from a linux server but that does not mean the server can actually run them - they are just stored there.
