sometimes it take me ages - I have to try maybe 5 or 6 times

sometimes they will just not upload at all

I tend to keep all my images under 200kb and less than 900px x 900px

anyone else of problems

my internet upload speed is fine

(the images I try to upload never seem to get into "the queue")

Bill, you're talking about using the gallery? I haven't experienced that, however I don't use the gallery much. Haven't had it happen with attachments, nor with embedding from Flickr.

Sometimes, the site does seem to slow down and sometimes just making a post can seem to hang in the seeming abyss for a while, but it's not a regular occurrence that I can pinpoint to a certain time of day. But it might be more on the weekends that I notice it. I'll have to pay more attention.

OK - I'll use the "american horse" - (do you remember than one?) - it's a lot quicker

could have been an Australian one - my memory is not what it was

Bill, I have that issue regularly and have a new iMac and a fast cable connection. I sent a "technical issues" email this weekend attention to Amin. It seems that the image is either grabbed right away for upload or the cog starts spinning and nothing happens. I have to back out and start again and sometimes it works on subsequent tries, and sometimes not. I did note to Amin that it happens as well to me at mu-43s.

Thank you both for letting us know about this. Just to be 100% clear this is uploading to the gallery as well as using the attachment feature?

Got it. I've sent out for the cavalry and hope that we can get to the cause and eradicate whatever glitch it is that is causing this behavior. We need to have an easy to use gallery.

Hi

has there been any reolution to this?

Sometimes trying to upload just locks out, or, with a 184 kb (for example) file, I am told the file is too tall...

Stephen, I'm sorry I didn't know there was still an issue because I don't upload to the gallery very often - or are you talking about a different uploading as in attachments?

Hi - Wow, that was a fast reply.

Yes, it's to the Gallery. I simply select a photo from my drive and then select submit and it either hangs, or, more often, says the image is too large.

P.S. I should add that it shows I have four images waiting to be uploaded. I haven't tried for days - I gave up and forgot about these ones.

Gee, I am sorry to read this. I'll send off a missive to our webmaster, Amin and hopefully we'll get to the bottom of the issue quickly. I am very glad you let us know.

Stephen, see if you make the file smaller if it will help. Amin is aware and will be looking more deeply into this issue but for now we have to make it work as is. I'm hoping to get Don on here to get some feedback as to his file sizes and experiences since I know he's been uploading fairly frequently of late.

Thanks BBW

Just for fun ( :wink: ) I tried again, and received an error message. This might be useful in tracing the problem:

" Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 50331648 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 12656 bytes) in /home/asabet/public_html/seriouscompacts.com/gallery/image-inc.php on line 116 "
