    Default Can't download pictures

    Due to my hard drive succumbing finally to a beer spillage, I recently acquired a new lap top.

    Initially, I couldn't start new paragraphs on this site. After tinkering, I changed some settings that fixed that issue.

    Where can I find the option to download pics ?

    Blackford - What did you do to fix this? I have the same problem. On my laptop, the "Enter" key will not create new paragraphs. If I want to write something that has paragraph breaks, I have to write it separately in Word, and then paste it into MB411. I have also had troubles doing photos recently. What setting do I need to change? Thanks. -- Glenn

    Under General Settings, I selected Standard Editor under Miscellaneous Options to allow the start of new paragraphs, but it disabled my ability to download pics. Enhanced Interface allows picture downloads, but in my case, disallows starting a new paragraph.
    I'm back to square 1



    Miscellaneous Options


    Message Editor Interface: Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing
    Basic Editor - A simple text box
    *Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls

    Thanks Blackford. I'll have to wait for this evening to consult with Janet, who is more computer literate than I am. I don't know how to even locate "General Settings" . Thanks. -- Glenn

    Hey guys, sorry you're having issues.

    Glenn, to locate General Settings, at the top of the page, go to...

    My Account > Edit My Profile

    In the Left Column, click the "General Settings" link.

    Scroll to the bottom of the General Settings page, there you'll see the "Miscellaneous Options" box. Inside the box, look for the the "Message Editor Interface" option and select, Standard Editor. On the "Enhanced Attachment Uploading" select, Enhanced Attachment Uploading on.

    Blackford, using the Standard Editor, to upload images, click the "Insert image" icon.

    Does it work correctly for you guys now?

    If not, are you able to try a different web browser?

    Hmmm. As for photos, I tried clicking on the icon your red arrow points to above. I retrieved a photo from the computer. No luck. In the past, I always just put them on Phototbucket, and posted the "[IMG}" link from photobucket. I'll try that next.

    Test photo upload. I uploaded photo on to Photobucket, and then I pasted the "[IMG]" link below, which should display photo.

    Okay, that method works.


    I just can't seem to be able to upload directly from the computer to MB411 for some reason.

    Glenn, are you following these steps?:

    1. From the "Quick" Reply box, click "Insert Image" icon
    2. Select "From Computer" tab
    3. Click "Select Files" button
    4. Add the file from your computer and Click the "Upload Files" button.
    5. After the file has been uploaded, you should see a snippet of "Attach" code in the Reply window.

    If that does not work, please try clicking the "Go Advanced" button, below the "Quick Reply" box and folling the same steps.

    Thanks Gus. The part that does not work is the second part of step 4 ... the "upload photos" step.
    It does nothing when I click that button. I just noticed there is red exclamation point next to the file name in the selected files box. It says the file is too large, so that is the likely problem. When I put a photo on a photo hosting site (like Photobucket), it seems to resolve the issue. I can post photos using that method, as I have been in the past.

    Thanks for the help and tips.

    Yes, the maximum size we allow is 2 MB for each image. Just curious, how large are the files you are uploading to Photobucket? I can increase the image size for your member group, if they're not too big.

    Speaking of image size, you should be able to add a bigger image of that beautiful avatar pic, if you wish.

    The particular image I was trying to upload was 7.23 MB. That was from one of my cameras that shoots images that are 21.1 megapixels, so it makes some pretty big files.

    I tried re-loading in the avatar, but a message popped up that said "invalid file". ... And this is a photo I uploaded to Photobucket , so should have worked, but didn't. I'll try a couple other things. .
