I am having a weird problem that I am trying to wrap my head around. I feel like it's a simple thing and I am hoping so.
I have installed wp about 5 different times on different sites, today I installed it for a client and weird things are happening. I had to change permissions to 777 for it to allow me to use the trash, to upload pics etc... Now I am trying to get thumbnails to show up after using posting them as posts and adding a custom field and calling it itempromo, in the itempromo field I have a link to the image, in the value box, for example "camera1.jpg" no quotes.
all the other sites I have used this on I created a folder called "thumbnails" and put the camera1.jpg inside the thumbnails folder and put the thumbnails folder the same directory that holds the wp-content, wp-admin, and wp-includes folders. This last problem install, I looked at the source code and it seems to be putting them inside a books/thumbnails folder, books is the category. I tried to create this by putting the images in the location it's looking in and I am getting an error.
Any solutions. I hope this makes sense. Why would this happen with this host and not any others?
