Difficulty uploading to photo gallery

Travel Forums System Talk Difficulty uploading to photo gallery

Hi,

I recently tried uploading a photo to the photo gallery as a jpeg from my desktop, but it didn't work. I have already set my browser to accept pop-ups from travellerspoint thinking this might be the problem, but I still receive and 'error on the page' and the browse to photo field resets itself. Any hints?

Also, is there a way to notify people via email who do not belong to travellerspoint that you have posted a new entry?

Thanks!

Hi Kearn,

That seems strange. I've had some errors generated that are related to files effectively being corrupt. They are described as 'zero-length'. Maybe if you can open the file in an editor and resave it to see if that fixes the issue.

I'm assuming your referring to blog entries when talking about notifying? If so, then yes, anyone can subscribe to your blog. They just need to go to this page and enter their email address and name. Or they can subscribe to the XML feeds if they so prefer (explained on the page linked).

Peter,

Thanks for your response. I was able to upload a few photos today, by following the same exact steps as yesterday. Go figure.

So now I have two test photos uploaded into my photo gallery, but when I try to insert one into my blog entry using 'IMG', the subsequent dialog box informs me that I must upload photos to my photo gallery before they will be available for insertion. I tried logging off the site and changing the visibility permissions in the photo gallery, but to no avail. Apparently me and photos just weren't meant to be!!

Why is this happening?

Thanks!

I can only assume there was something not quite right about that first file. Normally, it works without a problem.

Hmm, now that really is strange. The photos are correctly uploaded, so there is no good reason that it wouldn't show up. Visibility permissions shouldn't matter for that function either. I'll send you a message to try and work this out.
