cant seem to post pictures

Post by sparkyhorse » Thu Jul 09, 2009 9:49 am

i was trying to attach some mildly pornographic images to a comedy post and it didn't work. probably a good thing you say but it didn't work with a less suggestive image either, any idea what's up?

Was something too large?

Rich wouldn't let an opportunity like that go to waste! :lol:

Seems like a server side problem, which I think is to do with how long the server takes to time out. Am looking into what can be done to fix it.

I had this problem too. Is there a size/pixel limit?

It's a weird one. The settings are essentially correct, but there's clearly a conflict somewhere. I've been having intermittent problems with linking images and adding attachments for a while now.

Have just changed a couple of things, and it does now seem to be working.

The maximum viewable width is 500px - for user-friendliness I've given a bit of leeway on this however, but do bear in mind that anything bigger than 500px wide will crop from the right-hand side.

What are you trying to post? Either mail me the pic at lutewhine@evandando.co.uk, or PM me the link if you're trying to post something that's already online.
