after months of trying to get this sorted i still cant upload pics and cant get smilies, please delete me so i can start all over Alan4711

The smilies are on the bar above where you write, just press on that and the smilies come down. Then choose the smiley you want and click on that. To put pics on has taken me awhile, but click on the tree on the same bar above and then follow the instructions.

If you want to delete and join  again I think you have to do that yourself.

I can't get smilies either, I think it is because I am on an iPad, when `i use my emojis on the iPad they come out like this.....smiley face ????. The smilies were there the first day but have since disappeared!!

Hi Alan.

Sorry about the surgery news.  The garden will wait.  Sure all will be well.

 Those fruit trees sound good.  I put in an orchard for a friend few years back and she has tons,of apples and pears that I .....I mean she.....enjoys immensely

Alan, sorry to hear that you need so much sorting out, but so glad that you're getting sorted!!!  

Definitely haven't forgotten the drink  as soon as you're passed fit for alcofrolics we'll come and help you celebrate

Hi Alan, sorry to hear you need surgery,  hope you don't have to wait too long. Hope all goes well best wishes x

Tracey I'm on an IPad too and mine work just fine. What version of iOS are you using? I am on 6 (I think!), well certainly not the newest one - it took long enough for me to update Bernard (my iPad) to 6 that, a week late I felt reluctant to do the next one 

20/01/2014 at 19:37

Hi Alan, Sorry to here that your neck problem's more serious than previously indicated - let's hope that you get the news you so desire fairly soon. If you'd appreciate some extra manual support re: tree planting, I'm not more than a 15 minute drive from Tenby - and generally considered fairly trustworthy with fork and spadework (when properly supervised) me if you like the offer??

I've no idea what version I'm on panda! I'm a technophobe as well as a novice gardener!! I'll ask my 15 year old, he will tell me and report back.
20/01/2014 at 20:15

Alan, apologies, I hope you get that op soon and get your neck sorted out. 

20/01/2014 at 20:20

David - afraid/pleased to say Alan's just moved over to this side of the UK - he's on the Norfolk coast now, you might have to find a good B&B if you're going to help with the tree planting   Although, he did say he's got a really good local pub 

21/01/2014 at 09:53
morning all many thanks for your messages, it all helps a bit, yes thanks for the offer Dave but B&B here cost a fortune long way as well matey ,right im sitting here with the windows out new ones going in and the boiler needs the no show plumber AGAIN,and its thick and i mean thick FOG creeping into the house and it all smells seay, ozoney, piratey, spooky and bluming Cold,But the greenhouse i fell through now has some polystyrene sheets for the time being and all looks well,the baby fig we bought with us was romping away now she,s snoring away all wrapped up and cosy in the corner Dove advised me to keep her in a big pot for first year and how right she was ,this year into a fig pit and Bobs your wotsit,right be lucky everybody im watching you all. Many thanks Alan

I thought I would post on this thread as it seemed appropriate.  I have now come on the laptop to try and put a pic on my avatar and I just can't do it, it won't load at all and it is so frustrating, any ideas anyone?  I'm going to try and upload a pic of my garden, see if that works!!

Hope you are soon on the mend Alan, sounds very painful

21/01/2014 at 10:18

Are you showing off Brumbull LOL!  I've done it now, I think the picture I wanted may be too big so have used my 2nd you can see

Reply to Alan4711 - I'm sorry you're having trouble with emoticons and image uploads. I've sent you an email, with some suggestions for resolving the issue.

Reply to Traceynewbie - yes, the problem with the image you originally tried to upload could have been the file size. We suggest keeping the file size to less than 1Mb - that usually does the trick! Do drop us a line at if you have any further trouble.

I have a few of those which I haven't used in years,I guess this is as good a place as any,

You can only edit the last post in the thread and only if that post was you.

There is a glitch in the system when trying to upload pics. It's being looked into.

Click green tree icon.

A small window will appear with two tabs showing one for (your computer) and the other for (an external site).

Hit your comp tab and then pick select. This will take you to your computer files (new small window) where you can pick your file and press ok/open. The window will close and you will see your file name appear in the box next to the select button.

Now hit the upload button. This will probably cause a error window to open (Radupload ajax callback error with lots of text). Press return or the X (top right) 

Then wait till it appears in the small window. This can take a while so be patient.

When it appears press the save button and wait again. It should appear in the reply box but again this might take time.

Some files can be too big and will need to be cropped before they will load.

Hope this helps.

From the ED, today.

I'm sorry that you're having trouble posting images on the forum. A couple of things to check:

The images you upload need to be in jpeg or jpg format.

They should be less than 2mb in file size. If your files are larger you'll need to reduce them in size - there's a free app for iPad which will do this here:

I hope that helps!
