images thumbs cannot be seen in file manager

I have managed to remove the dreaded red X by making an adjustment in the KFM configuration file from:

$kfm_userfiles_address = '../../files';

to:

$kfm_userfiles_address = '../../files/';

HOWEVER, I still cannot see the image thumbnails in the file manager unless I right-click and go "view image". All I see is a file name and no thumbnail picture. Can anyone advise what I must do to fix this. I have the latest dot version

double check that the permissions on the files upload folder allow for read and write access.


also make sure that the GD library is enabled. see the following for details on enabling the gd library:

Thanks Jason. Yes the GD library is already enabled and working.
I am using xammp on windows 7. Any idea how to change file permissions??

in Dreamweaver, open the files window, change the Local view dropdown list to Testing Server.


Select the files folder, and right click, select Set permissions. where this is your testing server, check the read write and execute options for all three users.
