I'm currently having two problems with gallery scraper. Can you let me know if there's anything I can do to fix this?

1) It looks like my feeds aren't resizing images. I looked around the forum and saw some threads about trouble shooting this. I verified with my host my Image Magik path. I asked them about the "exec() functions in php" and if it was disabled. My host responded that becuase I'm on a shared plan this is disabled and they won't enable it for security reasons. So am I just out of luck? Or is there something else that could be a problem that I can fix? Could I resize these images once I've imported them into BA or would that cause problems?

2) When I import my feeds into BA they crawl the feed but there aren't any entires that get imported. Any ideas on this one?

Another thing I should ask. What are the limitations for the free trail version?

This seems like exactly what I need in combination with BA for my affiliates that don't have RSS items. Thanks for a cool script!

I just realized with BA I was having trouble adding a blog from the domain that I installed GS on. You checked that for me a few days ago and it seemed like domain1 was having trouble connecting to domain2 so maybe I should just install my GS on the same domain as BA just to check that. The other stuff I still need some suggestions on.

Sorry I'm working myself through this a bit. I've now successfully been able to get my GS feeds to show up in BA so that problem is solved. Now I just have the other concerns

hi there, glad you managed some of your problems.

about the image resizing, php exec() is needed because script uses it to call the imagemagic program to resize the image. there is no other way to call it, just with with command line exec()..

BA uses same, so it won't work again if BO and GS are on same servers.

If you have BA on other server where resizing works fine, then move and GS there so all will be fine.

Thanks that sucks for my situation. I'll get in touch again with my host but I don't think they're going to be much help on this one after the first reply I got.

Kaktus this is the reply I got from my host is their suggestion to use something other than imagemagik something that I could do?

Heres reply:

Also please check the link to understand the dangers of enabling it - http://in.php.net/manual/en/function.exec.php

You have another option to work with this. Please login to the admin panel of Gallery Scraper software. Instead of using the imagemagic program, you may try other options like GD, netpbm, etc and check if its fine for you. Smile

hi there, well GS uses ImageMagick because it is the best software for dealing with images. I don't bother with php GD and others, since quality is far way behind imagemagick.

well, all necessary security about exec() is taken in place in GS. calls to that function is made only inside admin panel and cronjob, ie no outside people can call it, so its safe.

Well since it's not my server I don't get to make the choice. Oh well I'll have to figure out something else. I appreciate all the time kaktus.
