Minifrontpage not generating thumbnail

Hi! I'm trying to use MiniFrontPage in Joomla! 3.6.0 and so far it works, except for the thumbnails, I just can't get them to show. I've tried putting the image inside the article content and before the read more tag, as Intro Image and Full Article Image, but nothing seems to work. Could you please help me with this?

Here's the link to my site: http://www.donmauri.com/2016/

Kind regards!

    Hi,
    I am also having this problem (no thumbnail generation). Did any of you find a solution. I'm creating the thumbs manually for the moment. I thought it was a problem of file permissions, which I changed to 755 but that's not the solution.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi, for your case I think the thumbnail size you defined is too big. Try to decrease the thumbnail size setting

    Good evening
    Same issue here.
    Trying to figure out this module already for a couple hours

    on my website, I have all my articles I want to show, but with the default grey squere where there must be the generated thumbnail

    What I tried so far...
    For the record: the imagefile does not contain any blanks (spaces)

    I created a subfolder inside the 'Joomla's image-folder" to gather all news-images
    I tried to add an image on top of the text -> still the same grey square
    I tried to add an image on the bottom of the text -> still the same grey square
    I tried to add the image as an "intro image" -> still the same grey square

    then I copied the images inside the generated minifrontpage-thumbnail-folder
    I tried to add an image on top of the text -> still the same grey square
    I tried to add an image on the bottom of the text -> still the same grey square
    I tried to add the image as an "intro image" -> still the same grey square

    In the settings-screen of minifrontpage, I turned of the "always show default image"
    but then there is no image at all....

    It looks like no matter what I try, I don't seem to manage the thumbnails
    getting ths work costs me already half a day

    hi seppe,
    Are you sure you have deleted all images under the folder images/thumbnails/mod_minifrontpage everytime you change the image? Because the module won't generate new thumbnail if the thumbnail image is already exist.

    Good afternoon

    No, I was scared to delete them again.
    Because that was the reason from my previous topic, that the module didn't work again.

    ok, I will try it.
    Let's hope for the best
