View Full Version : Downloading Image does not work.

05-28-2013, 08:35 AM
I searched for a way to make people able to easily download images from my site and I found this (http://www.socialgalleryplugin.com/guide-prompt-to-save-as-social-gallery-download-link/) guide. I activated both the functions "Show Image Download Link" and "Use 'Prompt Save As' for Download Links". I don't know whether "allow_url_fopen" is enabled, but I asked my host to do so (though they have not answered yet..).
The Problem now is, that I can indeed download something, but it is not the image. It has indeed the name (for example 1.jpg) but I can't open it. It says something like "Cannot open the file. It is either too big or broken". Does this mean that "allow_url_fopen" is disabled or is it some other kind of issue?

Hi Ben

I'm not sure on this one I'm afraid - I'll pass it onto Woods but I would suggest double check for allow_url_fopen is enabled first.

I just uploaded a phpinfo that kindly told me that allow_url_fopen is still disabled. I think this is the cause.
I'll let you know if the issue still appears when I have it enabled. Thanks!

I have allow_url_fopen activated now and it perfectly works.
