Error uploading images


New Member
Added new categories and set the image (same as I had originally done after adding them to the category_image directory) and got the error below. I commented out the lines to be able to access the add-on again (previously it just showed error), but I can't upload any images, I just get an error:

An exception occurred: Cannot save file data/showcase/category_image/007-baseball-cap.png in /home/oakleyfo/public_html/library/NFLJ/Showcase/Helper/Image.php on line 1011

Another example of when creating an item:

What should the permissions be? Appears the permisions are all 755 for the data/showcase folder
all folders in /data need to be either 755 or 777 depending on your OS. It needs to be recursive.

The template helper takes the category images that you upload in the styles directory and attempts to make Tumbnails in the data/showcase/category_image directory. That directory needs to exist and it also needs to be 755 or 777 (again, depending on your OS).

This category thumbnail functionality is standardized from XenForo Media Gallery (code is 100% the same as XFMG).
All folders were 755, even after making them 777, I still get the error. What's odd, is uploads to the XF forum still work 100%. Any other suggestions.

Have you tried a different IMAGE?

What is the image type, size, etc? Can you upload it here so I can test it out here?

Not sure what to say as this is core XenForo (XenForo Media Gallery) functionality (borrowed and used in Showcase for 6 years now). This isn't something new and it hasn't changed since implementation. Its a pretty basic feature.
