Forcing thumbnail rebuild in Gallery2?

Good evening.

I have tried every combination of actions I can think of to force my gallery thumbnails to rebuild. Nothing seems to work. Suggestions?


From this post:

[quote]I dunno if there’s an easier way, but I do the following:

  1. Browse to http://gallery.mysite.tld/lib/support/index.php
  2. Enter your my setup password
  3. Select “Cache Maintenance”
  4. Make sure that thumbnails and resizes is selected
  5. Click the “Clear Cache” button

When that’s done, I go over to rebuild my thumbnails. I think this part only rebuilds the ones that aren’t there and doesn’t force a rebuild, which is why you have to do the nasty stuff up above.[/quote]

Thanks! This look familiar. You answered this question before, but I couldn’t find the post. Shame on me. I have saved it to my “misc” directory with a cryptic filename, for next time. :slight_smile:

For some reason, I still cannot exorcise the old thumbnails. This is an album that I created before I knew that I could disable the “square thumbnails” plugin. I actually created square versions of the images with white borders to fill the extra space! The images themselves do not have the borders–I think I went back in and replaced them with non-square versions after the thumbnails had been built. Gallery2 is stubbornly refusing to rebuild them from the non-square images.

I think I am going to have to delete and recreate this album.


BTW, are you using the Gallery Remote plugin? It will likely make your recreating the album much easier…

BTW, hi again, Mark!

I have tried Gallery Remote, but found it lacking. It is a solid tool for creating an album, but I have been unable to convince it to modify or delete photos once they have been added.

The problem I am having right now is that I have an album full of bad thumbnails that I cannot flush from the cache. The only way I have found to get rid of them is to delete and recreate each photo in the album. Gallery remote would be very helpful for this task if I could convince it to apply my local changes to the server. But so far I can only get it to upload new entries, or to download the album as it exists on the server (overwriting any changes I make locally.) I cannot get it to apply changes and deletions that I make locally.

I have to admit that I’ve only used it to add new photos. I’ll check it out tonight when I get home and let you know if I find anything useful.
