  • If you are using linux server and you have control of command terminal, then do the following. Go to the folder where the thumbnails are present and Type the command ls -l and see the result. Feb 18, 2016 at 9:36
  • This command just list the images. nothing else

  • You can also confirm the permission issue by inspecting the page with inspect element.That will show error if the image request had some issue.Or else you can ( for temporary purpose and only in development server) , change the folder/file permission to all using command ` sudo chmod -R 777 files `.

  • Thanks for your help problem solved. It was a css class in my theme which sets the img display to none.
