Description Blast 2008-02-19 10:55:21 UTC
I am uncertain whether or not Bugzilla accepts Wikia bug reports, but I was directed here by their site. The bug manifests itself in that SVGs (and at least one PNG) are displayed as a gray box with "Error creating thumbnail: Unable to create destination directory" on it. Other images are displayed as red links, even though they exist on the server—their Image: pages, however, do not: they can be retrieved from the various image version links, but they are not technically "there".

You can take a look at the effects here:

This is almost certainly a problem with missing directories or bad directory permissions on the server. You'll have to check with the wikia server admins.
Comment 2 Blast 2008-02-26 22:09:02 UTC
No other—to my knowledge—Wikia has this problem. Wouldn't it affect everything if it was a root problem (as I guess you're suggesting—?)?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-02-26 23:29:31 UTC
Speaking from experience on our system, it is likely that the individual subdirectory for your wiki is missing/incorrectly permissioned.
