Photo uploading problem

Recommended Posts

I was trying to post a photo under "OC bus spottings" and it would come up that I had nothing chosen to attach.

Does anyone know why?

Thanks

I just want to say that I had also issues trying to upload a picture... every single time it told me I had to contact someone in charge of CPTDB....

The upload failed. Please contact a board administrator.

that's exactly it... I found a way to add a "display/avatar" picture in another menu... I'm not too sure what that "personal photo" is about... thank you...

Yeah, I don't think the personal photo feature works too well. I've noticed some people had one up but I could never get it to work myself. ^_^

Most people are looking for the avatar settings.

With the next version of the board (which we will be upgrading to as soon as the software bridging the forum logins to the wiki is released), that should be fixed.

It seems that some threads with posts that have large pics in them seem forever to open on my computer. Is there something I can do from my end, or should the poster be resizing their pics before uploading them? Seriously some threads take 5-10 minutes to open if there are several 'large' pics on them.

I have that problem when trying to post in the "2009 LFS" thread. I got the Error "Error, You did not choose a photo to upload". It's under 2MB and this is the first time it happened.

I'm having problems uploading images

Using the Attachment editor, I get an 'uploading file' message, and then the page returns to normal with no attachments listed.

Using the 'upload an image' feature I don't get a preview image, and the link supplied has the file name, but there is no image at the URL.

The images are fairly large, approx 2.5 Meg, so I wonder if the connection is timing out on me. (I'm using Firefox)

Could certainly be the image size. I know my "Upload an Image" link won't handle large pictures and has the behavior you described.

Please try to resize them on your computer first for best results.

I have the same problem. When I try to upload a photo, it says that I have nothing attached. It's not the size because all of my photos are the same size and I uploaded some before, and it's not my browser because as I said, I was able to upload before. Also, this happens with both FireFox and IE.

I'm having quite a bit of problems. They started when the server move was made. My photos are just under 1MB and have worked before. What that uploader does it loads and loads and the goes blank.

That happened to me last night. I tried to upload a 1.85meg JPEG file and first it told me that i'm not allowed to upload that type of file. Then i tried again and it went blank. I resized it and it seemed to work when the image is now about 158k.

I always make my pics 800 X 600 or less. Even though I have a new computer now I still have compassion for anyone that may be struggling with an old computer.

The "Upload an Image" link should now work fine for all photos, even larger ones directly off of a digital camera. It will resize to 1000 pixels wide now.

Tried both IE and Firefox and it still doesn't work for me. I guess I still have to resize them...

You are using the one at the top of the board, not when you are posting, right?

Also, do you get a broken image? Or what happens? Also, how large exactly are your photos?

Oh wait, that one works for me, the one from the post doesn't. My photos are usually around 1.40 MB.

If you upload a personal photo, how come it doesn't come up along the threads like they should? But is visible from your within your profile?
