    These are really good themes, i want to use theme. Unfortunately I didn’t know how to update the Featured Content Gallery for Magilas. I followed the instructions, put paddimage-gallery value, but no results.

    Could you help please ?

    I had the same problem as reda with this theme and I got it to work with these steps:

    1. change the thumps.php Line ” usort($files, “filemtime_compare”); ”
    to ” if(is_array($files)) usort($files, “filemtime_compare”); ” .
    This solves an array error I had with cleaning the chache.

    2. this may not be necessary, but you have to check whether your cache directory is writable, which means a chmod permission of “666″.

    This solved the problem for me, check if it works after step 1, it may be already solved by then.

    Cheers and thanks for this great Theme!
