Unable to Add a picture in a post

Post by 749006 »

Every so often it would be good if I could upload a picture to a post but most of the time it says the file is wrong and won't accept it.

Yes, I know other people have posted pictures so what am I doing wrong?

How are you trying to upload the picture, Peter?

I'm clicking on Attachments just below where I'm typing this - then Add Files

The file is 280kb, 1280x720 and is a jpg file
I get a yellow triangle under Status with

Error

The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.

I have tried different pictures with the same result

I get that as well, but I just tried a test post and it worked as it should. The following three test posts didn't!
I've also found that attaching two photos sometimes works, deleting the extra one before posting. Just to be awkward, that didn't work either, today. :x
I think it's another problem for Matt to sort out.

This may work -

Start writing your post
Refresh Page
Upload attachment by using the add files button or drag image into posting text box
Image should start uploading and green tick appear when done.
Place inline
Post to forum (twice now seems normal)
Go to Edit Post
Upload next image
and so on .............................

This generally works, but not always. I am hoping the Atomic Album link is restored soon though.
