I have a problem with images. After changing a category image they do not show up in categories main page and on a front end of website. Any suggestions?

I have just uploaded screen capture of the page with setting icons. I cant upload new one and when I use stock ones they never show up after saving changes.
Second image contains front end page that displays only space holders. I cant also change Please not header text. I have edited ini language file but it does not display it on the front end.
Thank you in advance for reply as I would like to fully test it before pro version commitment.

If the images don't show up although they are present, it could be a user rights issue. Please check your image directories on the server, especially the 'image' and 'media' directories. Set them recursively to at least 0755. Make sure that the owner of the directories is the FTP user, NOT the web server.

The second issue (with the icons placeholder) could be a template issue. Some templates overwrite the Joomla and KISS Advertiser javascript routines and cause problems. To avoid that, go to the KISS Advertiser control panel and click the 'Options' button. In the main configuration, look for the setting 'template problems' and set it to 'yes'.

Hi:

Thank you for prompt reply. I will check my image directories. Regarding the second issue I tried to to turn on template problems tab but the image place holder icon disappears buy the main category and on top of the page input box shows up with this image place holder. All other icons are still invisible.

Thank you for any suggestions,

Wojciech

It looks like a server directory separator issue.

On your screenshot I saw that your server uses two different separators:
The address looks like

http://localhost/root_dir\components\com_ksadvertiser ....
This is likely when servers run under Windows as Win uses backslashes as directory separators while Apache (Linux-) Servers use slashes. So your directory addresses should look like
http://localhost/root_dir/components/com_ksadvertiser....

KISS Advertiser uses Joomla's 'DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR' constant in order to define the paths correctly. Have a look at the Joomla settings for this constant. Or use a hosted server on the net - they are usually Apache Servers without any 'localhost' problems ;-)

Thank you for all good points.

I was able to figure that this is firefox/local host issue because all other browsers work good. Apache server should fix this problem.
I found similar discussion on a developer forum at forum.jreviews.com/topic/25494-mixed-css...on-firefoxlocalhost/ .

I have another question. I cant change intro text. I tried to edit ini file with notepad++ but intro stays the same. What am I doing wrong?

Last question. Can I update the current version of the software to pro version or I will have to do the fresh install and lose all my categories?

Thank you again
