I just tried installing WeBid on a Godaddy Free Hosting Server. WeBid installs OK. HOWEVER, none of the thumbnails generated by PHP parsing through the GD library appear on the site.

Godaddy Free Hosting is provided at no charge because it places an add banner at the top of every page served from the site. The problem is that a javascript prepends the add banner to every page, including image uploads through PHP. It gets read by the server as a faulty image header, and the image fails to display or shows random gobbledegook. I have not been able to find a way to circumvent this.

If your hosting company places ads on your pages, and you are having problems with images, this is most likely the reason.

Renlok - can you maybe sticky this or place it in the FAQ for future reference?
