Hi,

Hello Peter, and sorry for the hassle, but we`ve been having some issues with posting pictures as of late.

See this thread for updates.

Hi Peter, It has been a bit of a pain lately posting pictures, but what I have been doing,and it worked well again today is to post the text then click on modify and add ONE small picture and click save, normally it takes a while but you get the error message come up, just go to the home page and click on modify again and add a different small picture ,it then seems to go through ok, after that pictures post fine ,I posted a load today on the Chantry thread within about 7 minutes, all i can suggest is to try this method  all the best  Geo

I've used the same method from this side of the big pond, and it works...sometimes.....

Lately, re-loading the site, over and over again, seems to be the norm.

Just a suggestion but if you are trying to put a lot of text on site with pics then type your text as a text document and save in 'your documents' file. Then you can swipe and paste it onto this site and if it doesnt take first time then you can try again without having to retype everything again.
