    You have this code:

    <img class="header" src="http://www.webhost4life.org/wordpress/wp-content/themes/makintab-blue/functions/timthumb.php?src=http://www.webhost4life.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/Helen3-218x185.jpg&w=250&h=250&zc=1" alt=""/>

    this seems to be incorrect

    The image upload path needs to be modified

    I'm trying to get a theme named cleanPRESS working on my WebHost4Life windows server host. It uses timthumb. I tried creating the year/month folders under wp-content/uploads thinking that folder creation was the stumbling block but it still complains that it can't create the folder.

    When I use Live Writer it's able to to post pictures because it tested to see if the server had permissions to create folders - when it didn't it asked for my ftp credentials which it uses to create a folder for each post under wp-images.

    So I'm good to go except timthumb.php doesn't work. I've seen some suggestions to replace a block of code in it but it didn't work for me.

    Thanks

    I discovered a comment response by the author of cleanPRESS that worked. He suggested placing the image first in an images folder and then add a custom field to the post called thumbs with a value being the /yourimagepath/image_name.ext for example wp-content/images/testimage.jpg

    That works for me.

    To Horons: what did you do to the image path to make it work? I'm having the same problem with timthumb! Thanks for any help you can provide.
