It could be my scripts, but I've written them all to the wordpress/jquery no-conflict standards... when it installs it basically deactivates all my scripts.

Just another thing for me to double check before I release it. But I installed like 50 other plugins and they were all fine :D

Weird. And not cool for you!

GD has always felt clunky. There has been a 2.0 version in the wings for AGES now, but never seems to hit the prime time.

Kona, this is awesome. Do you think it would be possible to put the relevant info for starting a site in a different thread. This one is 14 pages long and has a ton of info but it is a bit hard to collate.
I know absolutely nothing about this and it would be a whole lot easier to get started learning if I don't have to wade through all 14 pages to figure it out.
Honestly just the basics would be great.

Thanks so much for all of this

MSG Owner was going to open up some specialized forums for this project. After this little hurdle of mine we might be good to open this up since there is no doubt completion is near. I haven't been updating the original post because of how busy I've been on this.

Kona, I would love to be able to sell physical goods on the same site. If this isn't as easy as it sounds, maybe it can be one of the plugins that you sell.

Or would I be able to add WooCommerce or similar without conflict?

I'm quite certain you could install a separate cart...if its just a plugin then there should not be a conflict.

If anyone is wondering "whats the hold up" I'm dealing with a very persistent bug. Results work properly on browsing methods, but no in a direct search. During a search, wordpress somehow sabotages the total number of pages so a 404 is hit after some random page. This is most likely a bug (the one so far, so not bad) but its BAADDDD.

I keep telling my wife its like the little bump on your skin that causes you to find out that you have a cancer that goes to the bone. When I came to this pagination problem I thought I'd fix it like any other - its just pagination. 10 minute fix! After a WEEEK of persistent work on this issue I'm still pulling my hair out. Was so simple, but the problem is deep.

Turns out that WP.org is not very eager to answer my help requests on this one, and most people reporting similar issues rarely come to a solution.

One way or another I will fix it, even if I have to work around it, but when it comes to coding I address the problem instead of cheating it, that way things remain genuinely good. 

So although there has been a significant delay, I'm still working on it and eventually we will see this thing downloadable.

Wow that sounds incredibly frustrating! Thanks for being thorough with it, would rather wait a week and have it work than not.

Keep up the awesome work Kona.

HAHAHA! I SOLVED IT! 7 days man.  Well, not really. But I did find out what the problem is - which is everything!

Its a wordpress issue. The "image" system is actually a custom post type, and wordpress has a BUG paginating these.

It has to do with how many search results I set it to show per page on the custom post type, VS the fact that wordpress still applies the site's default settings of "posts per page" at the same time...totally derailing it. I'd hate to release this thing with a big asterisk * saying btw, you have to tweak your blog settings to match image settings...thats not a winning solution.

Anyway, closer now!

 Not the end of the world - one bug in this whole gigantic project is not bad - but I'm going to devote some time to getting this addressed.

I hope that you realize how much your work is appreciated by those of us that haven't got a clue about how these things work.

Hi there. What is a "MOOC" assignment?

Still working on this bug. It has my brain numb. Nice to say though that as I keep reinstalling in in different environments everything else does great right on deploy.

A massive open online course (MOOC) is an online course aiming at large-scale participation and open access via the web. MOOCs are a recent development in distance education and often use open educational resources. Typically they do not offer academic credit or charge tuition fees. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massive_open_online_course

Update! POSITIVE. I finally solved the problem. It was a URL rewriting problem that was messing up the queries. I must have my rewrite rules wrong  or misapplied. After this fix I'm going to try to sum up and get this thing released.

Congrats on figuring it out.  It is always such a feeling of accomplishment when you reach that place :)
Looking forward to giving this a test drive!

7 days of hunting a single bug! Talk about a tough week!!!

I am glad you took it on, suffered through and finally solved it. Congratulation!!!

Can't wait to test drive, either...

I'm glad its solved. started to think things would end up a compromised mess and workarounds.

I think I searched half of google's entries on the subject. Most of the questions on the pagination issue never get resolved because there are many not-so-obvious ways to mess it up, if wordpress isn't bamboozling you.

From here I'm pretty confident there should not be any probs.

13/14 pages is a lot!

It might be worth opening up the Symbiostock project forum in a few days.

Yep I have a hard time getting a clear picture on this, long thread. is this project up somewhere available on a link to click around a bit? What would be the price of the finished system as you see it now?

Ok, so we are gonna "call it good" on this thread. Next time I come back hopefully it will be in a new forum for Symbiostock. I'm almost done.
