cover upload not working?

I just upload a cover to It isn't showing up though, just a box with a question mark in it, like it couldn't read the file. The file I upload is a .jpg

oh, sure, it looks fine now. Well I guess there is no issue!

There's certainly something wrong with cover uploads at the moment - it's very slow.

I've just uploaded two and it took about 5 minutes for them to appear on the work page and catalogue page. While waiting a broken image symbol was displayed.

And it's taken about 10 minutes for them to display in the 'using this cover' window that pops up when you click on the cover on the work page.

I've been seeing this too when adding new works/new covers. Even after recalculate author/title, then recalculate cover, the added cover doesn't appear. Doing a page refresh tends to fix it on the work page, but when I check the series page, it's not showing up there.

It's not a problem with uploads, but a problem of our image server. Well, our non-LT image service (CDN) to be precise. We're working on a solution but it will be a bit before we can move all of the images over to the new service.

>5 conceptDawg: Will the covers show up when this is fixed, or will we have to upload them again?

I can upload covers, but I have to hit recalculate cover to make them shew.

Still not working correctly

Well, the last 24 hours we had a different issue with cover uploads. I've just pushed a change to solve this new issue and we should just be back to the original problem with some covers not displaying correctly.

This is due to our CDN provider (basically a middleman server that takes load off of our servers) not fetching the covers correctly from our servers. We're working on that but it takes time.

Ok. I've made more changes to try and alleviate image loading problems. I think we are back to full service on covers.
