I am using Simple Image Gallery plugin to preview my images in articles. However , when I add my images in the folder set in the configuration only the {gallery} tag is displayed and not the actual image.

I have double checked my directory and also that the plugin is enabled but everything seems to be correct. Also I changed the cache folder's permission to 777. Is there anything other than those listed above that may cause this problem to occur ?

  • I would suggest contacting the developer of this extension

  • Does your your server has PHP's GD image library installed? Have you enabled debug mode?
