No cigar... Just sits there and grinds.... If I wait long enough; the connection will reset-not on my end; can browse just fine; and the pics are plenty small enough.
Any help appreciated...  :-[

I am not having problems downloading pics....are you sure it's not a problem on your end?
Title: Re: Test post-can't post pics??
Post by: JuryRigger on May 15, 2021, 09:12:46 PM
I suppose it could be; but I don't know what to look for... The pics are small (330 KB for my test one; JPG) and I can browse and post text without issues...

Methinks I have found a bug... Gotten two different error messages from the forum when trying to post a test pic now; took screenshots... First said "Your attachment couldn't be saved. This might happen because it took too long to upload or the file is bigger than the server will allow.
Please consult your server administrator for more information."
And in a red warning box at the top of this post; it reads:
"There are attachments found, which you have attached before but not posted. these attachments are now attached to this post. If you do not want to include them in this post; you can remove them here" (Which simply moved my screen to the attachments tool box, which was completely empty...

Don't know about that; it posted a pic that wasn't there; and isn't wanting to post one that I just tried too a minute ago.. Will send you the screenshots of the error messages here in a bit, time for breakfast now...

To err is human, to really foul things up requires a computer.

Think I just might try a new approach... Going to try to make a media album; and post from there...
Jesse
Title: Re: Test post-can't post pics??
Post by: lizzie on May 17, 2021, 10:20:05 PM
Hon, I don't know what to tell you. It appears to be an issue on your end, but I have no idea what it would be as far as the "prior attempts to upload......." thing.
I am assuming you have read the stickies on posting photos and didn't find anything helpful there.
Title: Re: Test post-can't post pics??
Post by: JuryRigger on May 17, 2021, 10:24:39 PM
I haven't yet went back and read the stickies; I intend to soon-just about to try linking an image from an album...
To be perfectly honest; I think it might be my ISP throttling my connection... The service plan renews soon; and they have tried to cheat us before...
Actually; the album way might be for the best-I could not get pics located where I wanted in my post without posting them up direct and then editing the post-which ended up with duplicates of the pics in the same post...

All I see is a small light "green-ish" square symbol, and when I right click and try to load the image....nothing happens.
Title: Re: Test post-can't post pics??
Post by: JuryRigger on May 17, 2021, 10:31:35 PM
Pretty sure I messed that up... trying to bring up the Stickies thread now; to copy the right link...

Maybe resize your files down, they seem pretty large. That or host them online elsewhere and just link to them as I have with these targets.

A good thought; but in this particular case these files are already sized down-the pellet pic is 330 KB....
Not that maybe smaller wouldn't go easier... Will try snipping my next uploads down as far as possible and see if there is any change  :D
