Where does the plugin upload media files?
The plugin uploads media files into the folders: /wp-content/upload/content[n]/
I've installed the plugin but the photo's URLs don't work. There is no "/stock-photo/" directory in the plugin's archive.
The URLs are virtual, seo-friendly. You should go Wordpress admin panel -> Plugins and deactivate and right away reactivate Photo Video Store plugin.
I want to install the plugin at the local server for testing. Is it possible?
Yes it is.
I would like to change a hosting. How can i move my Wordpress site?
  • You should download all files from the old server and upload them on the new server;
  • Create a mysql dump (backup) in the phpmyadmin on the old server;
  • Create a new database on the new server and import the dump;
  • Modify the file /wp-config.php with the new database details;
  • Go to hosting cpanel -> phpmyadmin -> 'wordpress' database -> 'wp_options' table and edit your site's URL in 2 first rows: 'siteurl' and 'home'.
If you have any problems you should contact us
Does the plugin use SSL?
You should know that SSL is a common practise now. The plugin uses SSL only for the payment gateways like Paypal PRO when a user have to fill in all credits card information on your site. Most of the payment gateways redirect a user to their safe sites for the payment. But anyway we advise you to install SSL certificate. Paypal requires SSL on the merchant's sites.
Is it possible to install the plugin on nginx server?
It is possible. But you have to rewrite all .htaccess files (/.htaccess and /wp-content/uploads/content[n]/.htaccess) in the nginx's syntax.
Is it possible to install the plugin on IIS server?
It is possible theoretically. But we don't advise you to do this. IIS has an analog of Apache rewrite_mod but it is paid. Moreover there can be other unexpected problems.
I forgot my admin panel access. What should i do?
Please try to recover the password by Wordpress 'Lost password' link. Also you can change the password in phpmyadmin -> 'wordpress' database -> 'wp_users' table. You should contact us. We will restore it quickly.

Uploading media files

How should i set my server to upload media files?
You shoud check the next php.ini settings:
  • upload_max_filesize - It is a maximum filesize which you may upload on the server.
  • post_max_filesize - This is a maximum filesize which you may upload on the server by the java uploader. The uploader generates all photo copies so the result file is larger than original one.
  • memory_limit - It is max RAM memory of the server which the plugin may use. It is a critical limit for the photo stock sites. When you upload a photo the plugin generates/resizes 2 previews. It requires many RAM memory especially for the high-resolution photos. It must be minimum 128M for 2000-3000px images.
  • max_execution_time - The plugin may work only for the time and then a server terminates it. If you upload large files you should increase the setting. Usually it is 30 seconds by default. So a jquery uploader works only for the time. Is it possible to upload 10-20Mb file for 30 seconds? Sometimes yes but it is better to change the limit for the stable work.
  • ignore_user_abort = On - If the buyers download large files the setting must be enabled to prevent a disconnection.
  • allow_url_fopen = On - If you use Facebook/Twitter/VK/Instagram authorization or Rackspace/Amazom S3 file storage the setting has to be enabled.
  • Safe mode - If you use Plesk hosting cpanel and have problems with the file's upload you should try to disable Safe mode. On CPanel hosting the plugin works perfect with enabled Safe mode.
  • EXIF module - There must be the section in php.ini file. Otherwise you won't be able to upload any photos (you will get a blank page).
  • GD module - The php library is required. This is for image's manipulations in php.
  • CURL module - The php library is required. It works with the payments gateways, facebook authorization and etc.
How could i change php.ini setting on the hosting?
You should ask your hosting support. There can be several methods: global php.ini modification, creation of a local php.ini, .htaccess instructions or php code. It depends on the server's settings.

If you use hostmonster/bluehost cpanel for example you have to go 'PHP configs' section, select 'Single php.ini file', install local php.ini file, rename the file 'php.ini.default' to 'php.ini' on ftp and modify the php.ini file. It is important to set 'Single php.ini file' otherwise local php.ini will affect only a root directory - not nested folders.

When I try to upload a photo i get the error: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7804 bytes)...
You should increase 'memory_limit' in php.ini file. The plugin resizes 2 photo's thumbs and it requires many RAM memory of the server especially when you upload a high-resolution image. If it is impossible to increase the limit you have to use only Java photo uploader which generates all photo copies on the client side.
A hoster doesn't allow me to increase 'memory_limit' on the server.
First we advise you to change the hoster. If it is not possible you should use Java uploader. It resizes all previews and photo's copies in your browser. So the uploader doesn't require RAM memory of the server.
When I try to upload 5Mb file I receive a error message. The small files are being uploaded fine. Why does it happen?
Probably it is a PHP setting restriction. By default in php.ini file upload_max_filesize = 2M.
I logged in as photographer and try to upload a photo. I see the max upload limit = 5M but 'upload_max_filesize' = 100M in php.ini. What is wrong?
You should change the photographer's limit here:
WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Seller categories
The jquery uploader works only for 30 seconds and then the process is terminated. What should i do?
You should increase 'max_execution_time' in php.ini file.
What files types does the plugin support?
The plugin supports all file formats. You can have 4 types of the publications:
  • Photo publication consists of:
    - 2 photo's thumbs
    - file for sale. Format: *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.png, *.gif, *.tif, *.tiff, *.eps, *.raw.
  • Video publication consists of:
    - *.jpg photo preview
    - *mp4/*.flv video preview
    - list of files for sale. Any format.
  • Audio publication consists of:
    - *.jpg photo preview
    - *.mp3 audio preview
    - list of files for sale. Any format.
  • Vector publication consists of:
    - *.jpg photo preview or *.zip archive of *.jpg previews
    - *.swf flash preview (optional)
    - list of files for sale. Any format.
You can disable unnecessary publication's types here:
WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Site settings
Could i add a new publication type except photo, video, audio and vector?
No it is not possible. You are able to rename a publication in the translation file only: /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/languages/photo-video-store-en_US.po
Could i upload *.png or *.tif file as photo publication?
Yes it is possible. You are able to upload *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.gif, *.png, *.raw, *.tif, *.tiff, *.eps files in the photo's publications. Also the plugin can resize *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.gif (not animated), *.png automatically. It keeps a transparent background for *.gif and *.png.
Can I sell CD collections?
Yes you can. You should zip your CD collection and upload the *.zip file as 'vector' publication. Moreover the publication can have several previews: you need upload *.zip archive of jpg photos as preview and the plugin generates all thumbs itself.
What stock file's licenses does the plugin support?
The plugin supports Royalty-free and Rights-Managed files.
What should i set in the admin panel before file's uploading.
You have to set minimum one license here (Common, Extended and etc):
WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Royalty-Free Licenses

and minimum one file type/price here:
WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Royalty-Free Prices -> Photo/Video/Audio/Vector
Can I sell a photo with initial sizes?
Yes you can. WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Royalty-Free Prices -> Photo. You should set 'size' field as '0'. The plugin determines real sizes of image automatically.
Can a small photo size be free downloading?
Yes it is possible. WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Royalty-Free Prices -> Photo. You should set a price = 0.
Can i set a watermark for a photo size?
Yes you can. WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Royalty-Free Prices -> Photo. There is a 'watermark' checkbox.
I would like to sell *.avi video file but i don't see the field in the upload form. Where could i add it?
You should go to WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Royalty-Free Prices -> Video and add the video format. The plugin supports ANY file type.
Could i sell *.zip archive of *.mp3 files?
Why not. You should go to WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Royalty-Free Prices -> Audio and add *.zip file type.
Where could i upload my files?
You have several variants:
  • WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Catalog (one by one)
  • WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Catalog -> Bulk upload (preupload files on ftp)
  • Photographer's member area -> My upload
What uploaders does the plugin support?
There are 4 types of the uploaders:
I want to upload only photos. What uploader should i select?
It depends on your server's capacity. When you upload a photo the plugin creates 2 previews. If someone buys a photo size it is necessary to create the resized copy too. It is not easy if a photo is large (in pixels). The server must have sufficient RAM memory ('memory_limit' setting in php.ini). Many shared hostings limit the parameter.

The java uploader helps to avoid the problem. It generates photo's thumbs on the client side and then send ready files to the server. So the server doesn't get overloaded.

Is it possible to bulk upload many photos?
Yes sure. Thare are 5 ways:
  • WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Catalog -> Bulk Upload -> FTP photo uploader. You should preupload all photos on ftp first.
  • WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Catalog -> Bulk Upload -> Java photo uploader
  • Photographer's member area -> My upload -> Jquery photo uploader
  • Photographer's member area -> My upload -> Pluploader
  • Photographer's member area -> My upload -> Java photo uploader
The uploader X doesn't work for me or it works correct only in some browsers? What should i do?
We specially integrated several types of the uploaders so that you are able to select appropriate ones. You could disable unnecessary uploaders in WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Site settings. So you should only test all uploaders and select more suitable for you personally. It is not a funny to integrate a new uploader but we did this several times specially for you and your choice.
I upload 3MB photo in the java uploader but for some reasons the result file is 7Mb. What is wrong?
The java uploader creates 2 previews and all resized photo's copies. So there are several photos instead of one initial image. If you want to generate only photo's thumbs to economize disk space please contact us. We will send you all necessary files. But in this case you have to make sure that your server is able to create the photo copies itself.
I am able to upload only small photos in Java photo uploader. The 'upload_max_filesize' is correct in php.ini
Probably 'post_max_filesize' limit is small. It must be more than upload_max_filesize' because the java uploader creates 2 thumbs and all resized photos instead of one image. Also you have to increase 'max_execution_time' limit.
I try to upload a photo in the admin panel but get a blank page.
Probably php exif library isn't installed on your server. You can check it in php.ini. You should add the php module or contact us. We will send you modified files where the library code is commented. Exif allows to define google coordinates from IPTC data automatically.
Does the plugin generate previews and resized copies for a photo's publication or i should do that myself?
The plugin creates thumbs and copies automatically. When you upload a photo 2 thumbs are generated. When someone buys a photo size the plugin create the copy.
What php libraries does the plugin use for the photo's preview's generation?
The plugin can use 2 libraries: php GD or Imagemagick. php GD is a standard. It is installed on all servers. Imagemagick is more powerful tool for the work with the images but unfortunately it is usually unavailable on the shared hostings.
What library is better? php GD or Imagemagick?
Definitely Imagemagick is better. It allows to reach the best quality of the previews and saves original colors. But it consumes many server's resources. So you can use it only on vps or dedicated servers.
Does the plugin create previews for the video publication automatically?
Yes it is possible but only if you have FFMPEG library on the server. You can set the option here: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> FFMPEG
Could i upload video files without ffmpeg?
Yes sure. In this case you need to upload *.jpg and *.mp4/*.flv video previews separately. You can create the files using some offline software. The variant is preferable when the video files are large and you can overload a server.
What video preview type should i use? *.mp4 or *.flv?
*.mp4 is better. It works correct on all platforms. *.flv (flash video) doesn't work on iOS.
I try to upload *.mp4 video preview but a player doesn't show it?
*.mp4 must be generated by H.264 codec. For example if it is created by mpeg codec it doesn't work.
I have ffmpeg. Is the plugin able to generate *.avi video file from *.mov file for sale?
No it is impossible. The plugin creates only video previews.
FFMPEG is installed on the server but the previews aren't created. What is wrong?
You should contact us. We will check the ffmpeg settings. There can be several reasons: wrong ffmpeg path, incorrect configuration, absence of necessary codecs, disabled 'exec' function on the server and etc.
I would like to change a quality of the video previews which are generated by FFMPEG. Where can i edit a ffmpeg command?
You should contact us or modify yourselves the function 'pvs_generate_video_preview' in /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/includes/functions/functions.php file.
Does the plugin create watermarked video previews by ffmpeg?
Yes it does.
Does the plugin create a photo preview for the audio publication automatically?
No it doesn't. It can create only mp3 audio preview by FFMPEG or SOX.
Is it possible to create audio 'watermark'?
It is possible. You need to have the library on the server: sox.sourceforge.net.
Does the plugin create previews for the *.tif, *.eps files?
No it doesn't. You need to upload a *.jpg preview separately for each publication.
Can I sell only prints - not digital files?
Yes, you can. You should go too WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings - > Site Settings and check 'Sell prints only'
I would like to sell mugs and t-shirts with the prints.
Yes sure. You could add any such products here: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings - >Prints and products
Can a user upload own photos and order prints?
Yes we have added the feature. WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Site settings -> Prints lab.
Where can i produce ordered prints?
This is your responsibility. You should think about it before offering prints to users. Also we integrated 3 online prints service: Pwinty, Fotomoto, Printful. The plugin can place prints orders there automatically.
Can the plugin extract IPTC and EXIF information and add it to a photo publication automatically?
Yes it can. The Photo Video Store plugin supports the feature. We recommend you to use the opportunity if you have to upload many photos. The plugin reads title,keywords,description from IPTC and google coordinates from EXIF. The filled IPTC info will help you to work on all photo stock sites and accelerate considerably the upload process.
The plugin reads IPTC info but the encode is wrong.
The IPTC data must be in utf8 encode.
Where can i edit IPTC?
Many photo software has such tool. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for example. You can do it here: Adobe Photoshop -> File -> File info.
I uploaded a new watermark but I cannot find any changes on the site. Why?
The watermarked previews are generated one time during uploading. The new watermark will affect new publications only. You can regenerate the old thumbs here: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Catalog -> Select action. Attention! It can overload your server.
I uploaded a watermark but it shows at the top of the thumb.
The watermark width must be smaller than vertical thumb's width.
Is there any file size limitation?
No there isn't. The file size is only limited by the php.ini settings: upload_max_filesize and post_max_filesize.
What is the model release?
If the people are depicted on a photo with the faces you should prove that they were agreeable to be a model in the internet. Usually you have to upload their passport or driving license scan.
What is the property release?
Property release is signed by an owner of house, hotel, private land, castle and etc. For example you can shoot model in 5 stars hotel or any other well-known hotels but you may not sell those files with commercial purposes without signed property release from the hotel. It is forbidden to use famous well-known interiors and private property for commercial purposes without signed property release from the owner.
Can a media file have an exclusive price for sale? It must be removed from the stock after the first purchase.
Yes it is possible. You should enable the checkbox: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Catalog - >Edit a file -> 'Exclusive price'

File Storage

Where does the plugin store media files?
The plugin can store files on a local server where WordPress is installed or on clouds hostings such as Rackspace cloud files, Amazon S3, Backblaze B2 Cloud.

The clouds hosting is cheap, easy and safe way to store media files and distribute them faster in Internet.

When you use Rackspace clouds or Amazom S3 all files are stored on the local server first and then they are moved to a clouds hosting.
Where could i change the storage settings?
You can set it here: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> File storage
I've uploaded 32000 photos and i cannot upload more. Does the plugin have any limitations?
There is no any limit. In Linux system a directory may have only 31998 subdirectories. So when you will have 31998 publications you should only add a new folder for the file's storage. WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> File storage -> Local server
Can a user download a media file without any registration and payments just indicating link to the file into the browser?
No, it is impossible. Such user will get "Access Denied" message on the screen. You can check it here. There is /wp-content/uploads/content/.htaccess file which prevents the downloads.
What is better: the storage on the your server or on clouds files servers?
This is only your decision. Your server is the easiest way to store files. if you have few files and they are not large you should use only your server.

The advantages of clouds hostings are:
  • The plugin requires only 25-50Mb disk space for the php files and temporary media files.
  • The disk space can grow without any limitation on the clouds hostings. You pay only for what you use.
  • It is cheap, easy and safe way to store media files.
  • The speed of file's download is fast and garanted.
  • Probably it is a single way to store large GBs video files.
  • Many hostings don't allow to store media file even if they announce unlimit disk space.
  • You can easily change a hosting. You don't need to move gigabites of file's archives to a new server. You have to upload only several megabites of php files.
  • This is a global tendention to store data on the clouds servers.

Some of our clients found several disadvantages. You should analyse them too and select the best method for you.

I am affraid that Amazon S3 and Rackspace will disappear and i lose all my files.
Amazon S3 and Rackspace are 2 world-wide leaders. We think the probability that your hosting provider will disappear is higher in the millions times.
What company is better: Amazon S3 or Rackspace?
We don't know. They are 2 world-wide leaders. That is a matter of taste.
Could i store media file on other clouds services except Amazon^ BackBlaze and Rackspace?
No it is impossible. At the moment only the 3 services were integrated.
I would like to use clouds file's hosting. Where should i upload my files?
WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> File storage -> Rackspace/Amazon S3. You should follow the instructions there.

The files are stored on the local server first and then they are moved to a clouds hosting by a special cron plugin.

So you have to upload files as usual and set a cron task which will move file to the clouds hosting.
What is a cron plugin?
The cron is a simple php plugin which is run by a server automatically once 15-30 minutes.

Here are the instructions: Admin panel -> Settings -> File storage -> Cron
I've run a cron URL but only several publications were moved to the clouds. But i have thousands of the files! This is catastrophe.
The file's movement is a time consuming process. It is impossible to copy all files quickly and simultaneously. So the cron moves the files by a portion: 1-5 publications. If the cron is run once 15 minutes all your files will be copied soon.
Does the plugin delete files on the server after it moves them on the clouds.
Yes sure. The disk space becomes empty.
Could i move my media files back from the clouds hosting to my server?
No sorry. It is impossible. This is a street with the one-way traffic :)
Where can i set the cron task?
You should have the option in your hosting cpanel. There is 'Cron' or 'Cron task' section. Otherwise you have to ask your hosting support.
What command should i use for the cron?
Examples of the cron commands:
  • /usr/bin/lynx -source http://www.yourdomain.com/cron-amazon/
  • GET http://www.yourdomain.com/cron-amazon/ > /dev/null
The cron command must ping the URL - not local path to php file.

in header.php file and add a comment for the line:
What URLs could i use to build Wordpress menus?
The plugin creates several permalinks for the service pages. The most important links are below. If the permatink don't work you should deactivate/activate Photo Video Store plugin in WP admin -> Plugins.

/google-map/ Google map
/language-list/ All langauges
/login/ Login page
/lightboxes/ Lightboxes
/media-collections/ Collections

You can also create own text pages by shortcodes.

If Wordpress is installed into a folder you have to add the directory to the links. Example:

Where can i modify a home page slideshow?
The slideshow's code is into the file: /wp-content/themes/your-theme/homepage.php It can be edited in WP admin -> Appearence -> Customizer
Where could i modify the photo sets on the home page?
You could modify them here: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings - >Home page
I sell only video files and home page's previews don't work for me.
All home page's components are set for the photos by default. You should edit them here: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings - >Home page
Where can i change a size on the home page's previews?
You should modify the file /wp-content/themes/your-theme/item_home.php.

Where can i change a size of the related items?
You should modify the file /wp-content/themes/your-theme/item_related.php.
I see several untranslatable words on my site. Where could i fix them?
Currently the plugin is translated into 44 languages. We add new words/terms permanently when we develop new features. It is impossible of course to support all languages. We update only 2 files: /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/languages/photo-video-store-en_US.mo and /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/languages/photo-video-store-ru_RU.mo files.
Could i add new word to the translation file?
You could use Poedit editor, open /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/languages/photo-video-store-your.lang.po file, edit it and compile *.mo Wordpress translation file. There is also a sample /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/languages/photo-video-store.pot file.
I would like to change a word 'Photographers' to 'Video producers'. What template should i modify?
The easiest way is to modify a translation file. You have to open the file /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/languages/photo-video-store-your.lang.po in Poedit, find the word, change it, compile photo-video-store-your.lang.mo file and upload it back on Wordpress.
Where could i edit text pages?
As usual in WordPress Admin panel -> Pages
I don't see a blog after the installation.
To activate it you should create a new page in WordPress Admin panel -> Pages -> Add new and select 'Blog' page template in the right menu.
Does the plugin support Facebook authorization?
Yes it does. The plugin supports Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vkontakte, Google, Yandex authorization. You could set it here: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Social Networks
I try to set facebook authorization but i get the error 'Invalid redirect_uri: URL'
When you create a facebook application you should set a correct site domain URL. This is the most important parameter.
I try to set facebook authorization but i get the php error 'file_get_contents()...It is not possible to open the external URL for security reasons'
You should ask your hosting support to enable the php.ini setting: allow_url_fopen = On.
I would like to have my site only in English, i disabled all languages but it continues to show it in my local language.
The plugin defines a language by default in your web browser and shows a site in the language. You are able to disable the option here: WordPress Admin panel -> PVS Settings -> Site settings - > Languages -> Automatic language detection.
I want to disable "right click button" on my site.
You should edit the file: /wp-content/themes/your-theme/header.php and add the code in the <body> tag: <body oncontextmenu="return false"> More info
Where could i change a favicon?
You should upload a new favicon *.gif file here: /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/assets/images/favicon.gif
Where can i edit audio and video player's code?
You should edit the files on ftp: /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/includes/players/audio_player.php and /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/includes/players/video_player.php
What video players does the plugin use?
The two video players are integrated into the plugin: JW Player and Video.js. Both players support HTML5 and Flash videos. JW Player is enabled by default. To enable Video.js player you should rename the file /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/includes/players/video_player_videojs.php to video_player.php on ftp.


Should i make a backup before the upgrade?
Yes you should. We strongly recommend you to make a backup of the site and database before the update.

Can you install the upgrades for us?
Yes sure. You should contact us.
Will the upgrade touch/damage my files and settings?
The plugin's upgrade won't touch a theme, a database and uploaded media files. You can lose ONLY the modifications in php files into /wp-content/plugins/photo-video-store/ directory. So we advise you to make a backup of your site and your database before the update.
My plugin has an old version. I skipped several updates. Can i install only the latest upgrade?
Yes you can. The update script will check your version, change db structure and upload new php files.
