    Trying to post photos

    Trying to post photos: I select photos and direct the file to upload; a % counter in the lower left window cycles through to 100%, and I get an error window, "Upload failed." Is there a limit on file size, or something?

    I've seen this before, the problem I had was the image type. I think (could be wrong) it didn't like a .PNG file, so I changed it to .jpg

    Thanks for your note- my files are .JPGs, so that's not it. Just two files, in excess of 2 MB each so I wondered about file size, but the forum software reduces filesize automatically... or so I thought.

    Turns out it was file size... I reduced them, and they posted as expected.

    The forum is set for 800 X 600 and will try to resize larger photos. However, files extremely large will just fail.

    I'm having issues trying to upload photos and getting the upload of the file has failed. Tried JPG, PNG. Downsized to 800x600, but still no luck. File sizes are around 200Kb each. I do have 25 photos uploaded if there is a maximum limit, but the error didn't mention it. Using Firefox - same as for the uploads that did work. What can I try? TNX.

    Sure doesn't sound like an >individual< filesize problem, but maybe the system is puking on 25 files uploaded? Other sites seem to have a limit of 10 per post. But if you haven't attached them to a post then I'm at a loss.

    To make myself clear, I have 25 photos uploaded previously that are attached to other posts. I only have two or three that I want to add as a reply to an existing post of mine. Uploading one at a time fails, too.

    This may be a long shot but try clearing your brows we cache. If that doesn't work let me know and I'll report it to the developers. There is no limit on photos per user, only per post.
