Anybody else having problems uploading pictures? This is occurring the last day or two [March 4, 2017].

I use PhotoRazor to downsize pic files, then I load them on my threads. I have uploaded at least 50 pics with no problem.

I can go to other websites (rcgroups.com and flyinggiants.com) and I have no issues uploading pics.

Is it me, or RocketryForum?

NOTE: I am running a rather old computer. (4+ years)

Yep - Rocketry Forum is FUBAR. I can't upload any pictures or other files today. Neither directly nor through the attachment manager.

I was unable to upload a single small jpg and/or png file this morning. I tried a few times then gave up.

Having the same problem. Is anybody working on it, a moderator, maybe?

I was able to get photos uploaded yesterday about an hour after I posted about my problem (post #3). Now again this morning I'm having failed uploads.
This is getting annoying.

I thought you need to be a paying sponsor to upload images?

Testing image uploading.

Seems to be back to working. Please try again and let me know if it is working or not for you now.

Thanks

Seems to work for me. It was a little slow, but this computer is always slow, so it's hard to tell.

Can't upload images either.

Tried from message screen and from manage attachments. Neither work.

What version of windows and browser are you using? Or are you using the app? Or are you on a mac product? And are you using the acceptable file extensions to upload?

Thanks for that information o1d_dude. I just tried using an iPad app and Safari and had the same results. I have turned in this issue to the head tech to get it checked out.

Try the uploading now. The techs have been working on it and it should be okay.

Once before we had a glitch where a LOG file got too big. Happened again and currently diagnosing why it goes haywire.

G_T Were you on an app? Or what computer system and browser were you using? What type of message did you get when you could not upload an image.


Windows 10 with Chrome here.

Windows 7 laptop, didn't matter what browser I tried. Usually I use Pale Moon, or Firefox. I've been uploading a lot of pictures lately to the Research forum thread on my THRP-1 project so I know the problem is not on my end. I did not get a message. What happened is the popup for managing attachments fails to completely load. It has a spinning icon indefinitely, and the button to go hunt for files to upload doesn't respond.

I seem to be now having an issue.

I was able to click the "add files" button, then click "browse" and then select a file (photo) or a few files at a time (using the CTRL or SHIFT key), and upload them all at once. And, yoyu could see the 'picture' you were uploading.

That seems to have changed to: click "Add files" then click "browse" And I can only select one file at a time. I can now hit the '+' and then get another 'browse' window and select the next file I want. I can repeat this about 8 times. And it no longer shows the upload progress bar.

So, it seems a much slower process, and one you need to be mindful of the filename. A lot more clicks, and you can quickly loose your way.

Thanks for that report. I'm not sure the added security that was added recently is having that effect. I'll see what I can find out.
