Can't upload photos on 02/10/2012 10:43:26 MST Print View

I've uploaded photos before without any problem.
When i press on the 'upload now' button, nothing happens.
Any ideas?

Did you click the button that says Insert Image At Cursor?

If it is a small photo, it should progress rapidly. For a large photo, it takes a while, and it doesn't provide any feedback during that.

Plus once you click on a photo, the file name should show and you need to enter a description of it. Maybe a simple reboot of the computer could help. Or you may be under-resourced. Sometimes this happens we we don't feed our IT support people enough Pizza and Pepsi.

I've posted photos before without any problem.
Selected 'browse', selected the photo, clicked 'upload', but this time. Zilch.
I'm trying to post photos on the ULA Relay pack that i'm selling.
I'm not surprised that Nick doesn't use poles though, going by his self photo. ;)

This site has occasionally given me trouble as well. Try it again. Sometimes it seems to work when you double click the upload now button.

Perhaps, without our knowledge, BPL has instituted a quality filter for photo upload....... ;-)

About once per year I have a weird problem like this, and it might be in the browser. When I restart the OS, the whole problem goes away for me.

That isn't me on the bicycle. If you are referring to my avatar, yes those are magic shoes that make you go very fast and weigh under 5 oz for a size 12. Approaching Mach 1, it is best to drag a pole behind you to keep the flames from reaching your ankle though.

Cheers folks. After mega compression, they eventually loaded.
