unable to display signatures or avatars after host change

Postby sileed » Thu Oct 05, 2006 12:13 am

Hi there.

My settings:

php v 5.1.1, safe mode - OFF
mysql v 5.0.24
GD Status ON
PNG support - ON
FreeType Support - YES
Freetype Linkage - with Freetype

Set character page to display signature just gives me the words "signature for <character name> eg: http://www.inkredible.ca/php/char.php?n ... ullcrusher

Going directly to the sig.php file I get : (could not find/open font)
http://www.inkredible.ca/php/addons/sig ... ame=Sileed

The fonts are indeed there, and I deleted them and re-uploaded them.
Siggen settings for fonts directory has not been changed (shows fonts/ )

I used to host Roster 1.7.0 myself and it worked great. I recently re-downloaded Roster and setup a fresh DB with an actual host (brinkster.com - I think Mordon uses them as well)
Everything else in Roster works great except siggen...

I just need a frsh set of eyes to look at this and possibly tell me what's not check off, or what is missing - I'm sure it's something weird..
Thanks

Go into siggen config, and select new fonts for each font selection, then change them back

No dice.. :(

I tried a few things actually.

first I changed them all to None, cause I saw that in another post, saved my settings, even went so far as to logout, logged back in and changed them back,saved- still no signatures.

so then I changed them all to "visitor" font (cause it was last on the list), save my settings, tried a preview - nothing, changed them back; saved, tried a preview - still no signatures.

I'm open to other suggestions. I'm willing to share my pwd with a forum mod if they'd like to login themselves and give it a whirl/take a peek around.

Thanks

I am also trying to host SigGen on a brinkster account... and have the same error you specify.

Depending on which site you read (I've read a few trying to see if I could get this fixed!) it's a bug in PHP (but I think that was specific to a v4) or that the path specified for the font should be absolute.

In SigGen v0.1.10, the path is absolute and it has been since v0.1.8 I believe

So I see! :)

The line it fails on is using the function imageTTFBBox (line 369)

$txtsize = @imageTTFBBox( $size,0,$font,$text )

I have tried a test script using this function - which worked.

I have tried replacing $font with a full path and font name - which didn't work.

Now I'm totally confused.
