Hi Michael,

OK. Got it. Loading the images now. However, when trying to view them
in my browser (still not displaying thumbnails btw, but I'm assume
that's a plugin setting) when I click on the (text) icon to display the
image I'm getting the dreaded :

"Dummy text to sidestep display bug message"

Which from searching the list archives I believe has something to do
with the format strings in the collect.cfg file? I checked the faq but
didn't find anything.

Sorry to be such a pain.....

Thanks, again!


PS. Finally, one last little thing. On installing 2.41, the default
username/password "admin" doesn't seem to work.
