Organize Series Icons (images) not saving… read on…
Update (November 18, 2013): See this comment below regarding changes that were introduced with Organize Series 2.4.6 and the new steps to fix.
It has come to our attention that a small number of customers are having problems with Organize Series not saving their icons when attaching images to series via the Manage Series page. For the few customers where this has happened we’ve localized the problem to one of the two issues.
- A table has been created in their database with the name “orgseriesicons” and not “orgSeriesIcons” (which is what organize series expects).
- An ADDITIONAL table has been created in their database with the name “organizeseriesicons” and the original “orgSeriesIcons” is still present.
The problem stems from a decision made a LOOONG time ago back in the early years of Organize Series to name the table holding the icons as “orgSeriesIcons” and using CamelCase in mySQL table names is generally a “nono”.
We’re currently working on a fix to the table name for an upcoming release. However, for those users comfortable with directly manipulating your database through a tool such as phpmyadmin (AND who need a fix immediately!):
- If you have two tables with for the icons as described above, rename the one named “orgseriesicons” to something like “orgseriesiconsold” and then see if your series icons save correctly at that point. If they do then you can safely delete the temporary renamed table.
- If you have only ONE table for the icons named “orgseriesicons” then rename it to “orgseriesiconsold” and then rename again to “orgSeriesIcons”. Test and see if your series icons save correctly at that point.
If the above does not work then please report back here so I know those steps don’t work for certain db setups. THEN what you can do is search through all the organizeseries files and replace all instances of the text “orgSeriesIcons” with “orgseriesicons”, then deactivate and reactivate Organize Series and things should be fixed.
For the few users experiencing this issue, I apologize for the trouble, we’re hoping to get a release with a fix out before the end of the weekend.
