Me and other Tiki users in our university are finding many troubles with image galeries for the last months (using Tiki 1.8.4, and GD 2), in a similar way other people reported at the forums (browsing some images already uploaded hangs the browser for this session in Tiki, Sometimes, the internet browser connected to Tiki hangs when trying to upload a simple jpg file, etc...), and it recovers when you completely close all your windows of this internet browser and start again. Maximum image size in php .ini was lifted to 32 Mb some weeks ago, but problems seem to persist beyond that.
One simple solution is rebuilding thumbnails (if you have the permission to do so! , and here it comes the question:
I can't find howto add a the permission to rebuild thumbnails in image galeries for a specific group of users (students in class). Help appreciated.
On the other hand, I read weeks ago in tw.o forums that image galleries were significantly improved for the 1.9 version of Tiki. Could this be also included in the official "stable" version of Tiki (1.8.x)? (since it seems that 1.9 is still away from being stable, according to TikiPlan19 )
Thanks to all in advanced! (I enjoy Tiki alot, and most of our users at university also do!
