Upload Failed - FIXED

Ive been trying to upload a picture and attach it to a message but I constantly get Upload Failed. Ive read other threads that have mentioned the same in the hope it is a local security setting that I have wrong but I dont see anything. There are a couple of threads shown as fixed but it looks as though there's a back room fix. Are you able help me?

Thx

Re: Upload Failed

I have had a little dig about and it may be that my IMG is switched to OFF.

Is it to do with which lounge you're trying to post to?

IMG tagging is available to use in the Just Images lounge. If you go in there, you will notice that it is switched ON.

I'm guessing this didn't help?

Dont think so, as your not asked for a lounge when trying to attach an image. I know you are if you try and upload to a gallery, but I was trying to just use the paper clip in the message box to attach an image.

Re: Upload Failed

Yeah but images in messages aren't allowed in certain lounges. It won't ask you which lounge, as you've already picked a lounge before you click 'new topic'.

Re: Upload Failed

As far as I know, images are allowed in all/most of the forums. It's just the Image tags that are only allowed in the Image lounge. You should definitely be able to attach images to any thread in the Way Off Topic lounge.

I think there is a glitch someswhere in the forum software, and I think Ian et al are aware of the problem.

Re: Upload Failed

I had a problem uploading a couple of pics to the image lounge the other day. Ended up having to attach as 'thumbnails'. But I'd tried as both 'Img' and file attachments before that.

Re: Upload Failed

Not being able to upload images is a known forum glitch. It looks like to effect only a relatively small number of members. We are looking for a solution. As soon as we know what goes wrong we will report back.

Thx Toronto Spyder. Looks as though there is a s/w problem going by Selespeeds reply.

PS: If your name is after the Alfa Spider, is it Spider or Spyder?

Spider. Spyder is a German term, mostly used by Mercedes I think - never used by Alfa.
