My portfolio website has been working until recently. Now, when I go to my portfolio page, the image says this:

: getimagesize( []: could not make seekable - in on line

I am using a WordPress theme and the developer suggested that I need to find out if you allow the getimage() function. Can you help?

Hello NJMJdesign,

Apologies for the problems with page - it was a puzzle for us too. The function getimage (getimagesize) is definitely available - when we look it up there is warning about GIF files that may be related to this issue. Here's what it says:

For some image types, the presence of channels and bits values can be a bit confusing. As an example, GIF always uses 3 channels per pixel, but the number of bits per pixel cannot be calculated for an animated GIF with a global color table.

On failure, FALSE is returned.

That is straight from the PHP manual, so it may be related to the problem you're having. Can you try converting the image and code to a different file format like JPG or PNG and see if you're having the same problem?

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
