Uploading photos only creates <filename>_thumb.jpg

description

The first time I tried it worked fine, but now, every photo I upload only creates the _thumb.jpg file, not the photo itself, getting a 400 error - Version 2.0.4 on Umbraco 4.6.1

I've come back to say that I've managed to solve the issue searching in the our.umbraco.org forums, just to see that you just suggest me to read the same post that has helped me to fix this (the second one you suggest). Great! :)

Effectively, I had a 'zombie' data type (Author picker) from a previous pakage (Blog4Umbraco, if I remember well).
It would be great if DMU could handle this situation, maybe an error message or something? :)

Anyway, thanks for your quick answer!

Awesome!

Yea, it's dificuilt to handle. The issue is around creating additional thumbnails (you can add different sizes in the upload prevalues) as it has to lookup the upload data type, but then hits that issue when looking up. The only fix I can think to do is to wrap that around a try catch and just not attempt addition thumbs if it can't load the data type. Least then you'd get your main image at the very least.

I'll see what fixes I can add, but glad you've got it working.
