Is it possible to upload an image direct to this site without using an external host?
If so, how?
Click on upload file and follow the process make sure your photo is less than 2mb
see these screen shots on how I uploaded the wyvern.
I'm on my laptop at the moment.
Wish you had uploaded 'moose' he looks fun
Just followed exactly the instructions stated here but get this message "there was a problem with uploading your file".
I've uploaded jpg pictures before but this has me puzzled.
All my pictures are less than 2Mb.
Are you trying to upload a screenshot taken on an iPad by any chance? If so, I get the same problem. Could be an Apple thing?
Hello SDP, no I'm not trying to upload a screenshot of any apple configed photos, I'm trying to upload a picture from my laptop. I've tried loading other non related photos with the same result.
If you could send me the picture at
I'd be happy to have a shufti & see if we can get to the bottom of this.
Well within size limit at 146k
I'm afraid I'm now puzzled.
This seems likely to be a local setting (security, maybe. possibly laptop objecting to our Http rather than Https pages etc.) at your end, but if you're able to upload to other forums (?) then that also makes less sense.
Have you tried it on this thread?
Might be a thread issue.
Hello von Poop, yes I have tried on this thread to upload file, with the same result. The one thing I have noticed is when I click on "upload a File" it immediately opens "File Explorer" window on my computer, I do not see the interface asking me to "choose file". You might be right about it being a local setting I will have to look at my settings, any suggestions?
By the way this happens in all threads. Why is this website http and not https? I have seen when logging in "this site is not secure do you want to continue?"
Hello von Poop, just logged in using Chrome instead of Firefox browser and I managed to upload the file. So it must be a browser setting that's stopped it.
