Image controls?

(Nordize) #1

I tried uploading an image, also drag-n-dropped one and all I get is an <img ... /> tag which inserts a static image into the post. I get none of the “onebox/lightbox” stuff or controls that I see in this blog post … image isn’t clickable. It’s just resized from the full resolution (to 690px wide). What am I missing?

Using 1.8.0.beta9. I have the create thumbnails option checked (“Create thumbnails and lightbox images that are too large to fit in a post.”)

Maybe your max_image_width setting is too large?

(Nordize) #3

Like I said, it’s 690px (max height 500), which are the default … the image I uploaded is 1024x576 and Discourse resized it to 690px wide. It’s not clickable, there is no lightbox or antyhing. Nothing of the sort shown in the blog post.

I just tested on my site (with a much larger image) and it worked as you expect. It seemed that it took a minute or two to be able to click it to get the bigger image.

(cpradio) #5

So it does. I was about to say. I just ran it on my instance and got the result described and now re-visiting it, it shows as a lightbox. So it seems there is a background job that is implementing the lightbox effect and depending on how your server is setup, it could be a while before it happens.

It’s been 42 minutes in my case. No change, no lightbox. I can see you guys are getting likes, but maybe some hints as to how to debug this? My setup is pretty default …

Your sidekiq (background task processor) is not working.

(Nordize) #8

Thanks, though that’s a little cryptic for me. Any details on what/where exactly to check?

(Lucas Nicodemus) #9

Assuming you’re on a standard install, going to /admin/upgrade#/processes should show a Sidekiq process running as the “discourse” user. If Sidekiq hasn’t been running for a long time, you should see a notice in the admin panel dashboard too.

I believe you can run ./launcher restart app from /var/discourse to kick everything on and off again.

You can also visit /sidekiq to view the sidekiq dashboard and see if you have any failures or lots of scheduled tasks.

(Nordize) #11

43 failed tasks, but I can’t see which. 3 scheduled tasks, none that have to do with posted images (that post 443 does not have any images, only text)

What happens if you manually rebuild the post? It will force the post processing job to run (which does the onebox).

(Nordize) #13

How do I manually rebuild a post? (I’m happy with the rails console, I just don’t know the Discourse code by heart)

(Régis Hanol) #15

You can do that with the UI :wink:

Click the ••• under the post, click the wrench icon and click “Rebuild HTML”.

(Nordize) #16

Thanks. I did, and 3h later nothing happened. I also monitored the Sidekiq panel immediately after clicking “Rebuild HTML” and the only new task sheduled for that post was “Jobs::PullHotlinkedImages”, which didn’t add any lightbox/control to the image. What else could I try or check?

(cpradio) #17

And create thumbnails is enabled in Admin > Settings? And what about, download remote images to local ?

(Nordize) #18

Yep, like i said in the 1st post, create thumbnails is checked. Same with download remote images to local (I presume this is triggering the “Jobs::PullHotlinkedImages” task).

EDIT: When uploading an image from the local disk, I get an <img ../> tag in the edit box, and after “Save edit” then nothing happens, ever. If I link to an image on the web instead of local upload, I get only the url in the edit box, and after “Save edit” the image is clickable for a few minutes, but still no lightbox (like I get here on meta - I tried with the exact same images that I linked above). In both cases, the only task that gets scheduled in Sidekiq is Jobs::PullHotlinkedImages. Then, after the Jobs::PullHotlinkedImages job runs for the linked image, that one also loses the clicking … both cases then are rendered statically: no lightbox, no link. If I edit the post I see an <img ... /> tag in both cases after a few minutes.

If you go to https://your.discourse/logs, does it show anything relating to images?

(Nordize) #20

First, I appreciate you guys are helpful and on the ball, great team and community (freaking better than paid support at most companies).

Second, no … logs show no error or anythign related to images. The last log there is from Sunday.

The only errors I see are:

ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid (PG::InFailedSqlTransaction: ERROR: current transaction is aborted, commands ignored until end of transaction block : SELECT "topics".* FROM "topics" WHERE ("topics"."

Shall I update to 1.8.0.beta10 and restart the app, or would you like to get to the bottom of this in the current state?

(Régis Hanol) #21

Updating to latest won’t hurt.
