Same here. After sync all info was visible, now only name.

Adobe Stock / Re: Adobe Stock Contributor Site now live!
« on: September 20, 2016, 04:27 »
Not working for me. When I tried to login with my Fotolia password I received an error message: "The password is too short".

Long ago I created account somewhere at Adobe site. Now I used that old email and password and it worked, I was logged in and prompted for sync with Fotolia. If you don't have Adobe account, create new on Then log in. Be sure, that you are logging in contributors page.

It becomes cleared, when customer pays Alamy. Sometimes it takes few weeks, sometimes few months, so be patient :)

Canva / Re: Canva new FTP

My old ftp name was reported as OK, but to log in to new ftp I had to use account password and account name as well.

My last payment was in March and I waited seven days.

Symbiostock / Re: Is this project dead?
« on: August 19, 2014, 04:58 »
IMO the solution to this would be to find and integrate a compliant third party commercial shopping cart which is capable of doing digital downloads  and which solves the tax issue. I have no idea which.

I use Fastspring now for selling my defishing program. They act as a reseller and get 8.9%, it is acceptable for me. I was thinking about integrating it somehow with Symbio, maybe later :)  There is also PayPro and many other similar companies.

Symbiostock / Re: Is this project dead?

Let me add my opinion to this very interesting thread :)
For me Symbiostock is still something important (and not dead :)). I even sold an image last week:)
I spent many days creating, plugins and some networking code for Symbiostock. I still hope that Leo or someone else will continue this project. I thought about doing it myself, but I am afraid, that it is beyond my skills. Maybe, if I had more time :)
I even wanted to make something what I called "Symbiostock lite" or "symbiolite". Written from scratch very simple, but fast and with only minimal set of functions. Without bulky and slow Wordpress, but of course compatible with Symbiostock network interface.

What is very important for me: "my" Symbiostock should work out of the box. Ready to use stock site, with all menus, home page, EULA, slideshow etc. Even filled with few demo images.
Just upload script to server, enter few lines of personal info and start uploading.
It all should be like creating an account at any of existing stock sites. 
Customization options - yes, of course available, but left for later.
This would be my branch of Symbio :)


Symbiostock - General / Re: VAT Plugin ?
« on: August 12, 2014, 04:23 »

Regarding VAT plugin:
I am trying to sell shareware in my site (defishing program), and I am using FastSpring as a payment platform. They act as a reseller, with full customer service, VAT invoices for EU customers, etc, and they take only about 8.5%. There are more similar resellers, for example payproglobal. Maybe it could be possible to write a plugin for Symbiostock, somehow integrating it with one of those services?

General Stock Discussion / Re: christmas at this time?
« on: July 19, 2014, 13:37 »
Today I sold a snowflake image at shutterstock, so you all are right, it's time to upload Christmas pictures :)

The forums and tutorials seem to be up and running (read only but searchable)

yes, we've got the documentation back online  and are working to get the interactive options v\back up & running

Does this mean that forum will be enabled again at

123RF / Re: Falling sales
« on: July 12, 2014, 11:29 »
I've never had any issues with FF there.
And June was the best month this year for me, July seems to be even better (so far) :)


ajt, please also delete me from the global search on your site, too.

Webmaster Tools is still showing the top three sites linked to me:

All links leading to your site from above adresses were automatically removed three days after you deactivated Symbiostock theme. Webmaster Tools reports them because Google has them in database, and I think that you have to wait months (sometimes even longer), until they completely disappear.
BTW, my Webmaster Tools show 571 links leading to my site from cathyslifestockphotos :D

Images don't have their own separate numbering. All Wordpress pages are stored in Wordpress database in records called "posts". Each page, for example home page, login page have unique ID number in database table. When you are adding new image, it gets first available ID. Every image occupies three separate post (ID of one of this posts becomes image number), so if your first image has ID 203, next will be 206 and so on. These numbers should be rather assumed as unique image identifiers, not consecutive numbers.

My SS theme isn't getting to read the .mo files within the languages folder and it was defined correctly the language into wp-config.php:[/font][/size]define('WPLANG', 'pt_BR');My .mo/.pot/.po files are within the correct folder wp-content/themes/symbiostock/languages and the files are:pt_BR.mopt_BR.popt_BR.pot

Any idea what can be wrong?

In current version Symbiostock doesn't support languages other than English and language files are not used. All messages are hardcoded in theme files. Only few (for example in pagination navigator, maybe login window) come from Wordpress and language settings work there.
But be careful: for example "Next" in German version becomes "Nchste" and there are problems with German "" in files used for network communication, so images from German sites are not visible in network results :)

There is one site using an Alamy plugin to route people to Alamy for RM, but we are waiting for Leo to redo the licencing system and then we will offer RM directly.

I think this site has RM and RF

I have only few RM  images now, but all are linked to Alamy.

I am waitng for RM licenses in Symbiostock too :)

Now I have separate category for editorial images, maybe I should make menu item for this :)

thx for the getting started links - definitely will start there, and for your godaddy reccomendation for a host - I will check them out

Godaddy offers linux and windows hosting, linux option is better for symbiostock (windows doesn't have imagemagick installed).

Very nice concept, I like this 0-100% bar.
I am developing something similar at, but it will be a bit different solution :)

2.8.2 version is working with php 5.4, blank screen bug was fixed in 2.7.9.
If files don't show after processing, check your watermark image (path).

By the way, have you had any sales already ?

I had two sales so far :)

i notice i can upgrade to premium and business account.

You can have two accounts - personal for payments from stock sites and premium or business for Symbiostock.

« on: September 24, 2013, 03:55 »
I don't know, how it works and why, but I like it.
Suddenly my old files (2003-2010) started to sell very well :)
