Hi, I am new to the site and want some advice on a problem but cant seem to upload any photos.   I can select the photo but when I press 'upload' nothing happens.  Anyone any ideas please??

Hi Lindyloo, you have to wait for about 30 seconds for the photo to appear in the box. Then click save.

It doesn't work from a phone...yet

24/08/2014 at 16:17

Yes takes ages - I thought it wasn't working! Probably about a minute for ordinary broadband - no superfast here yet!

Best to reduce the size of the photo or you'll be asleep before it uploads

Thanks all.    Waited and it appeared.   Uploaded to the message I was sending and it didn't appear, just some funny little white boxes - waited for ages and still didn't appear.    How do I reduce the size of a photo nutcutlet please.  Why is everything so flippin difficult.

The white box means it is too big- Nut is right. In your photo album on your computer  there should be a function to edit and crop the pic. It probably only needs a little slice took off.

You might find they appear after submitting a reply with just the boxes anyway but probably on their side

P.s Welcome to the forum Lindyloo

Sorry, should have said that before...

24/08/2014 at 17:35

Lindyloo, to reduce the size you need to open your picture in a programme like Photoshop or 'Paint'.

Paint is a very basic programme you can download, so simple even I can use it.

and welcome to the forum

I don't seem to have the toolbar or any facility to upload photos, can someone tell me where to find it please?

If you are trying by phone or iPad then some just don't work on here  Think best bet is lap top,

Nooze - In your account (top right of the page) try clicking on 'settings', scroll down to 'forum settings'.......note if your settings are set for 'basic editor' or 'advanced editor'. If it's set to 'basic editor', click 'advanced editor'....this should give you a toolbar above your message box.

As for uploading pics, I find it easier & quicker to transfer them from PhotoBucket, rather than from my PC.

Hi David K, just followed your instructions and bingo! Thank you so much

You're very welcome, Nooze....glad it worked for you. It does add an extra & useful dimension to the forum.

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!
