I'm have problems loading pictures which I never had a problem before. I type in my comment go to advance click on manage attachments click device, click on picture. Picture uploads 100 % click upload and no picture sends me back to typed comment that I made. After trying 10 times finally was able to get picture but couldn't add second picture. I have been loading picture for years this way with no hassles. Thanks for checking out I will check back to see your comments . Dave

The team is investigating the issue. While it may be more persistent in some cases or times, it's an intermittent issue that is known and is being reviewed.

Thanks.

Similar issue. Often when uploading the pic it will only go to 99% or 100%, then stay there, not finish the upload.

There is another related issue with images and quotes also. Sometimes, if I quote another post then insert the image, the image overwrites the quote so that only the image is posted and there is no quote.

This is an example, but it worked this time. When it fails the quote won't show, only the image will be present. Obviously intermittent, but I've seen it MANY times.

For me, hasn't worked in weeks, Inline attachments is broken so I started using image and today when I used (image) it deleted all the text. I give up, the forum software is now more frustrating than it needs to be. How is the testing done before its made "live production' ? Simple tests showed it didn't work weeks ago so why was the update still pushed into production ?

I think it has something to do with the size / format of the picture. The smaller DPI the picture the better luck in getting it to work.

It still doesn't place the picture in the correct location and you need to move the picture using the Source option. Cut and paste text to get the final format to work.
If the picture uploads its usually placed before all the text.

I guess the programmers never used the software they wrote, or they wouldn't call it ready for "Humans to use"

If you look at the Albums you will see uploads from members. Some are directly uploaded to the Albums and some are through the Post process. This shows that it does work. We've disclosed there is a bug that sometimes causes failures. Obviously it would not have "pushed into production" if it was broken to the degree as suggested. What benefit would there have been?

We get that people get frustrated. But sometimes the claims and comments are a little off. There is extensive testing done behind the scenes. I can say that because I see the trail that others do not. That doesn't mean everything will go perfectly. Some have different ways of accessing and using CorvetteForum along with different programs/extensions in their browser.

As said, we know there is an intermittent issue with the uploader and the team has been actively working on the issue.

Regarding the text and picture placement, I do recall a few reporting that issue but I don't believe I could ever duplicate the issue or there was something different being done. The pictures have always been placed where I expected and wanted and I'm using one of the most common browsers that is shown to be used on top of trying the other big-name browsers.

I’m having the same photo upload problem although I was able to upload the photos from my IPad to an album on the site. Therefore, the issue for me seems to be a connection between the album and the posting. I’m no technical expert but I can say that the issue for me began within the past 4 weeks as there were no issues before that.

I hope you’re able to find a fix soon since this seems to be affecting a number of people.

That is correct. The issue has been isolated with the posting process while uploading an image. Uploading to the album directly does not appear to have the issue.

The team is still investigating.

I know it’s being worked on, but adding me to the list. Can’t upload any images from any of my devices. Cleared all browser data several times, does nothing except tell me it’s uploaded 100%, then gives me the middle finger

JT, ongoing with Iphone, very frustrating as I do not often have access to laptop to upload needed pics. They pics show loaded at 100 percent, hit the final upload button in upper right and it brings me back to the post without the pics. No issues on laptop/Widows 10.

Just curious, only because these issues started for me a couple months back, although now posting pics is completely impossible. At least before it was hit or miss. Any chance this idiotic infinite scroll is causing the pic issues?

EDIT: nope, tested that theory. Disabled the scroll option, still no luck

Just tested again, iPhone and iPad. No luck uploading pics. Is this an issue you guys can’t figure out or haven’t had time to really look into?
