    anyone know how to fix this? I get the following error when i try to preview any of the gift certificates...

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function imagettfbbox() in /home/doulat/public_html/administrator/components/com_awocoupon/assets/virtuemart/ps_awo_giftcert.php on line 327

    also it doesn't look like I am receiving the email that is supposed to get auto-generated with my gift certificate. Could this also be because of the error I specified above?

    Hi, what version of php are you using. According to the documentation imagettfbbox is defined in both php 4 and 5:
    http://php.net/manual/en/function.imagettfbbox.php

    And yes, I do not think you would receive gift certificates since it is using that function to create them.

    Ok, do you have GD library installed? I do not see it on the list. You will need that to generate the images.

    I see. never seen this erro before so went to googling. From what I found, you either do not have gd library or you do not have php compiled with ttf support. So we know you have the gd library, can you check the ttf support?

    I am not sure, you would have to ask your host about that.

    Thanks for this post, I had the same problem although as I had error reporting disabled it wasn't showing me the error at first!

    Just adding that to see if it fixes!
