Can no longer attach pictures

Post by bigyellowtractor » Sat Jul 01, 2017 2:41 am

It seems I can no longer attach pictures to posts. I add the file as usual but get a yellow triangle once it's uploaded.

A similar thing happened to my bike club forum and I think it was solved by our admin guy ticking a toggle somewhere to allocate for space for pictures.

Anyone else having trouble ??

Not sure how you are doing the pictures but PhotoBucket just shafted any of us that used them for hoisting. The first few times I tried this sites gallery I got a problem like you are describing but it is working for me now.

Fuz, they worked for me in the past here and I'm familiar with php forums so normally have no trouble. I'll do a quick test, just in case it was a temporary issue.

edit....

Still not working

Use the gallery, not attachments.

BYT: Can you screenshot the error you are getting and send it to me in an e-mail? ( jamie@e-boat.net )

Hello Jamie,

I don't get an error message; when I double-click on the file to attach, the "status bar" on the right of the pane tracks along and goes green but then I get a little orange triangle with an exclamation mark in it.

edit....

Just did a test on a couple of other forums I'm a member of and the pictures up-loaded and displayed as expected !!!
