Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
Thanks, what I'm trying to do is to control the proportion of thumbnails..
I was trying to install Thumbnail Generator and it said you had to have GD installed..
Can I install GD from the web or does it need to be installed from the server and is there a better way to control the proportions of thumbnails..
From what I understood from reading the GD support site, it is normally installed when the server owner installs php. It used to be a manual install before v4 (I think) of php, however now it is built in and is a command line that can be given during install..
Your best bet is to ask your server provider if it was installed..
I am also having a hard time getting any decent thumbnails to show, and have installed about 3 different contributions, only to have them still look bad and had to do complete new installs again. My server does have GD installed, so that wasn't the issue..
I think the main problem I have is with the instructions being a bit more tailored for those with php knowledge and more osCommerce knowledge than I have..
Thanks Betty, I think I will just use PayPal for now instead of osCommerce. I will try it again when I have more time..
What does GD mean as in;.
YOU MUST HAVE.
INSTALLED TO MAKE THIS WORK...
