No images were found in the specified folder

I am getting a "No images were found in the specified folder" message although i have followed the exact instructions in the Add Album section.

What could have gone wrong?

Are you able to confirm that the images exist, and that DNN can see them?  This can be caused for 1 of 2 (known) reasons:

  1. There are no files with .png, .jpg, or .gif in the folder
  2. DNN is not aware of the files yet

To solve #1, simply upload the required files through any upload interface.  Most often, people use the Admin > File Manager to do this.

To solve #2, go to the Admin > File Manager, and recursively synchronize the file system. 

After doing one or both of the above, try to view the folder again.

Ok, i think it could be the second reason.  Thanks.
