Cannot post Attachments - get 'Server Error'

Posted 18 March 2017 - 09:43 AM

The last few days, when trying to post attachments, all I get is a short message:
"The server returned an error during upload".

Annoying.

Double check file size. I think 1024k is max per image

Thank you for the report. I have heard a few folk having issues with it.

An alternative is to use a site like imgur.com to host then use the 'image' tag button in the thread.

I'm getting the same error. I have been getting it for at least two, maybe three weeks now.

That was my "we are not amused" photo.

So... Modi can post images but we can't. Is it a permissions issue? The management can and peasants can't?

As far as I understand, no. I clicked the image tag button in the editor (between the html link and insert email address).. and pasted the valid image extension url into it.

(extra space added to see the tag)
[img ]https://s8.postimg.o...18_21_17_24.png[/img]

From what I gather the OP cannot attach - as in upload to the DIC server - an image. Which is something that I cannot do either.

Yeah.. a few things.. first - the extension must be a valid image file. " ?dl=0 " isn't quite that.

After - that if you go directly to the image in a url dropbox does wonky things where they wrap the image calls in html. That may be causing a problem. I have never had issues with direct linking from imgur, my own domain, pintrest, etc.

I cannot post simple images, gifs or pngs. This is a basic requirement that needs to be resolved.

As far as I understand, no.

I'm also unable to post photos, so it's not a permissions issue.
