We are currently upgrading our site www.jrfm.eu (OJS 2) to OJS3. Transferring the content, I encountered this strange phenomenon:
Uploading of issue files works perfectly (although the internal PDF viewer is missing, but that is another topic).
However, after completing the issue I want to upload an issue cover pic:
Issues → Back Issues → [select] → edit → Tab 2 / Issue Data → dragging jpg into cover field → [SAVE] :
Error message comes up saying “Wrong file type. Accepted file types are jpg, png and gif”
and the pic is rejected. The file I want to upload though is an ordinary jpg with aroung 300KB / 874x1240px.
Any ideas? Hints would be much appreciated … Thanks in advance!
I think your file size is too large, try to resize it and reupload.
I hope it work, just trying to help.
Thank you, I will give that a try. However, a file of 300 K too large? Not very probable, since it did work in OJS 2 …
I don’t know but I’ve tried, mine is 49 KB after I resized it.
But I think is not that size, its about the dimension, mine is 424 x 600 px.
and it work.
Nope. Just tried it and reduced image size to your suggestion; still get the “Invalid Cover Page format” error (“Acceppted filetypes are jpg, png or gif”.
I suspect a write permission problem somewhere. But where?
Thanks for trying anyway!
For illustration purpose:
first it seems the upload is accepted (green checkmark), but then, after clicking “save”:
note that this jpg only has 55K .
If the problem is a file permissions issue, the exact error and file location will be specified in your PHP error log. The likely location will be in the “temp” folder of your
Upload issue resolved. It was indeed a problem with the file permissions in the /[issue_nr]/ directory (wrong group)
Thank you for all input.
Hello, I am presented with the same problem, could you help me on how to solve it, thank you.
This is quite an old thread - over 4 years old, and may not be monitored. It also deals with an older, currently unsupported version of OJS. Perhaps you could post your issue in a new forum post and the issue could be discussed there? Please include your version number in the post.
