POLL: Anyone Having Trouble Posting Pictures on AAPK????

Postby Miller Bro's » Sun May 24, 2009 2:05 pm

This has been a problem for a long time. I am having trouble posting pictures, and staying logged in! :x

Anyone else having the same problem, from reading different posts it seems I am not alone.


I have contacted Bryan about it. If you are having problems post it here!

Some of the pictures I try to post I get a message that says, "invalid". Maybe, well I don't know.
Wow! That baby is sharp.

Yep, I have my knife photos in photobucket.
Other sites allow me to copy the URL and paste it right into the post text.
AAPK won't let me do that.

Having to use the attachment method I have to search my pictures on my computer by date they were entered, not by brand & pattern. What a pain.

I've asked several times about why the photobucket URL can't be pasted in like on other sites but no one has bothered to explain why or if I'm missing a secret code word.
Oh well, least the parking is still free. :mrgreen:

I have seen some photobucket images posted here at AAPK but I don't use it. I do see a url and image tag above the text box that I'm writing in so it would seem that posting from photobucket should be possible. I have never had a problem uploading an image from my PC.

Here is a picture that is from photobucket that I chose at random.
http://allaboutpocketknives.com/knife_f ... 14&t=12665 It is an image that Kaleb inserted from photobucket of a knife he customized. I see that it is resized to 800 x 600 so it may be possible that if your images are to large - they won't upload. In this case his picture (image) is 43766 bytes - about 44kB.

Right click on the picture and select properties at the bottom of the menu and you will see all the information as far as where it came from, the image dimensions, and size of the image.

If you have trouble posting (uploading an image), the first thing I would try is to resize the picture. There are lots of FREE programs to resize your pictures.

It doesn't appear to be bothering my photobucket. I hit the IMG code and it copied and I pasted ( using CTRL V )

I am using FIREFOX, and have it set to accept COOKIES.. :roll:

Hukk,

The problem, at least for me, isn`t the size of the photo. I do not use photobucket or any other service. I take a picture and when you click the browse box below, you search for the picture you want. In my case I take the picture directly of my 3.5" floppy disk. I choose the picture I want from the list and then click "add the file", this is where the problem begins. It either downloads like it should or it brings me back to the login page :x Then I have to start all over again till either I give up or it finally works ::disgust:: I found that clearing all the "board cookies" helps, but it is not a permanent solution.

Every time I want to post a text message, there is usually no problem, in any case every time I want to post anything, text or pictures it`s back to the signin page! ::cr:: And yes I am checking the little box to keep me logged in, I might as well try to bail out the ocean with a teaspoon, that`s how much that box helps.

Having problems staying logged in to the chat room. Message I get is "expired login time", or soemthing to that effect.

But I am able to post links to my Photobucket account without any problems.

I still have a problem in the chat room sending not peg photos.

So I just show them in GD and delete them after the men in there see it.

Seein if this works..

EDIT: everything seemed to work as advertised. That is the first time I've used the forum's server to upload an attachment.

MB, what kind of connection do you have to the inter net?

::hmm:: I wonder - they don't normally put floppy disks in PC's anymore because they are much slower and vulnerable compared to today's flash drives that are available. Floppy disks have a capacity of 1.44 MB and are considered obsolete. Flash drives can hold as much as 128 GB and the older 128 MB, 256 MB, and 512 MB flash drives are being phased out by many companies because they do not contain enough storage space (a 512 MB flash drive will hold the same amount of data as 355 floppy drives and this is becoming obsolete). Flash drives use the newer USB 2.0 at 480 MB/sec vs. the older USB 1.1 at 12 MB/sec and the floppy comes in at 1.1 MB (not allowing for start up) and these are maximum speeds.

If you are using a dial up connection with a floppy I would suspect that you may be timing out. You should upload posts directly from a file located on the C drive - I use My Pictures (XP) or Pictures (Vista). My computers are fairly fast (except my 7 year old XP Laptop) and I keep cleaning out the clutter that slows a computers performance. I use an internet connection with 784 KB/sec (upload likely half that) (cause it's only $20.00) vs. a dial up that really sees about 26.5 kB/sec.

Anyhow, you may have more success with your pictures by not using a floppy. I'd give that a try first, then connection speed. Last, computer speed is affected by the clutter they pick up over the years. I clean mine every time I shut my PC off - daily.

I'm betting on the "floppy problem".
I post mine from a folder in My Docs with never a problem. I found recently that I don't even have to click the Add File button.
