Help! What am I doing wrong?
« on: July 11, 2018, 11:42:25 »
I am trying to post some photos. Before I have used Flickr and copied the BBcode, edited it and posted. I've had no problem doing that. But I have multiple photos to upload and doing it that way is slow, and mistakes can be made!!(by me anyway) losing all I've done. I have timed out twice last night (despite Andy altering the time allowed a while back).
I have tried to use the 'Attachments and other options' but can't get that to work.
I choose the file and hit post to get this

If  then 'go home' and then back to the post I get this


it looks like the file is there but it still won't post.
I presume I am making some obvious error in doing this but just can't figure out what.
thanks for your help.
Mick

The first error message is telling you you're trying to attach pics without any text at all. It won't allow that. Second error message, gawd knows.

Rusty, even if I put text in the post along with the file I get the same message!  :shrug:

I hate to say it but this does look like the interface between the desk and the computer that is at fault.

I'm pretty sure that is the case Andy, but as in all these cases it would help if the interface knew what it was doing!  :shy:
Cheers Graham, I know it can be done I just don't know why I can't do it!!  :dl_smiley_banghead:

Mick, try a couple of tests, add text first (subject and body) then add one image.

Small terrier on the loose, running all over the road. Turned out to be the farmer's dog.

Some sort of headway. Made an image smaller (down to 209kb) but it still wouldn't upload. I got the above image on the screen. I managed to upload that using 'Attachments and other options', that image is 98.5kb. It seems I can do it if the image is small enough?
My problem is I can't get the image I want to upload any smaller than the 209kb I tried. I'm using Optimizilla (an on line program) to compress it. Has anyone a better option?

Edit.........just spotted Dlste's post in another thread. I'll try that. Thanks Steve.

I do as well now. Blimey Rusty you either have quite a memory, no life whatsoever or a postman's memory of dogs.
