I have been working on my build log by adding photos to the text and everything goes well until I'm finished and I hit the ADD REPLY button and the result are frequently a page saying "This page cannot be displayed". The back arrow brings up the Reply edit screen with all of the text I added is gone. Sometimes the photos are still under the Attach Files button but my reply post is lost.

 

It is very frustrating to work on a post explaining the latest step in my build and losing it completely. It has made me reluctant to keep adding to the build log.

 

Rick,

building a King of the Mississippi with a powered paddlewheel.

Rick,

 

Make a copy of your post (in Word or Wordpad if using Windows) before hittin REPLY.   Now here's somethings to check:  picture file size, image size, and the number of images being added.    Adrieke has some good questions also,

 

If you can give more info, we can try help.

 

Another typical old IT guy type of question...   When did you last reboot?  Is the OS up to date with patches and updates?

Hi Rick,

 

I just had a look in your Build Log and I think Mark has nailed the problem - your pics are too big to fit more than a couple in each post. Once you go over the Megabyte limit the post won't load. Try down-sizing the picture size and/or resolution, or limit each post to fewer pics.

 

:cheers:  Danny

Thanks for the quick replies from Adrieke, Mark and Chuck. With your collective help we'll get this problem solved.

 

I am using an HP Pavilion with Windows 7 and IE 10 just reinstalled about 3 months ago. My camera is an older Nikon Coolpix 995 set on normal quality resulting in digital images of 600 to 700 kb. I thought image size (singular) was 2 MB. Is it the sum of all bites from all the photos supposed to be below 2MB?

Yes.

 

Don't forget, there's also a 10 pic limit per post.

Hmmm .... strange that you got away with pics that big Adrieke. Maybe the limit has been upped (and no-one told me :) ).

I tried just now a shorter message with 3 photos and the "page could not be displayed" message came up when I wanted to preview what I had done so far. Maybe something else is going on.

 

I will try to copy a new post to Word next time before I even before I preview it. A while back I tried selecting the text and by using 'Control C' it should have been put on the clipboard. But after the "pcnbd" message and getting back into MSW the clipboard was empty. :(

Rick,

Make that "copy,paste, and save".  Just so you don't lose it.   And another old IT guy question:   You're trying to upload .jpg or .jpeg photos and not .tif or something else?

 

Try a test post of one pic...

I always read it that each file could 2MB, with 10 each that would make it 20MB per post  Maybe one of the admins can let us know what the limit is :)

I am on win 7/IE 10 also and on rare occasions I have issues but not like you describe. have you got any toolbars like yahoo or Google installed. In the past these could cause a fair bit of issues

Thanks in advance for all your help

 

I just checked what toolbars I have on this browser. None of them have a check mark by them so they aren't visible. Under View/Toolbars I have listed: Microsoft Live Search Toolbar, Qwest Toolbar, Google Toolbar, ShopatHome.com Toolbar. I don't use them and if they are causing problems tell me how to delete them.

 

Here is a test photo:

This message just bombed twice. I am not reinserting the photo but we can try that later - R.

Rick...

 

Yes, delete them as they are still "active" even in the background.  Goto:  Start-->Control Panel-->Programs and Features.   Once there, look for the toolbars.  Highlight and click on "Uninstall".   You should reboot after removing all of them.

 

Here's the images you sent me.  It appears that the site automatically resized them to the default 1600 X 1200.

Having a problem uploading photo.  Never been an issue before.  The upload seems to be successful but when I hit 'Add to Post' nothing happens.

 

Ideas?

What's the OS and the browser?  What's different?  Toolbars?  Updates?
