the thumbs on my front page weren’t working (safe mode restrictions), so googling a bit lead me to find that some fixed with putting @ (suppressing warnings / errors) before the set_time_limit function.

doing that fixed it. yay me (google, actually). lol

Warning: set_time_limit(): Cannot set time limit in safe mode in [script location] on line 14
**Headers already sent, dumping error message as text:**
OutputThumbnail() failed – headers already sent

not sure how suppressing warnings for already sent headers would fix it, but whatever.
