    Default timthumb script

    I know the security issues around the use of the timthumb.php script, but I'm working with a Wordpress theme that unfortunately still relies on it, and rebuilding the site in another theme would be big, big pain. My images are having issues with not showing up, and I receive an error like this:

    A TimThumb error has occured
    The following error(s) occured:

    Could not find the internal image you specified.

    Query String : src=http://209.236.72.6/~wisdomou/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/realityblank.jpg&w=600&h=300&zc=1
    TimThumb version : 2.8.5

    The image definitely exists, and my permissions are set correctly, but no dice. The query string is truncated in this error message, for what it's worth. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Any way around it?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Default

    Is this perhaps the answer. http://www.ardeearam.com/blog/2011/1...version-5-3-5/

    It looks like the current version of this script may have changed quite a bit so the above would not fit. Also the above is when you are running non a Windows machine which WH does not offer. By the looks of the URL you are using it could be you are trying to run this on a local windows machine though. Also the newest version does not use the built in realpath function anymore. http://code.google.com/p/timthumb/so...k/timthumb.php

    It might be if you simply update to the newer version you'll be fine.
