Photo upload problems
I started having problems this month uploading photos to the restaurant database.
At the time, it was only the Restaurant records with the problem. Since then there are problems adding photos to posts.
I thought I'd start a new topic about upload problems in general. Maybe others who are having the same problem wouldn't read a topic about the restaurant database.
The old post problem noted in the other link was that "Done" would appear at the bottom, but the page hung and the topic never posted.
This has changed as of last night.
Now "Waiting... " appears on the bottom and the post still hangs. However, there is some progress. The topic and photos post, but the screen makes it look like you are still waiting for the topic to post.
After about a half hour, I thought I'd have to start again and then found the topic had gone thru, it was just the screen froze. This has happened on two topics so far.
I've been having the same experience on the Home Cooking Board. In instances where I'm posting and attaching a photo, the posting looks as though it's "in process" for an inordinate amount of time. If I open another window and check, it's been posted but my other screen is still hanging (with that little circle moving).
Using IE 8 I tried to upload a smallish photo to a new restaurant and nothing happened. I am a software tester so I was a little thorough with this:
Click "Add One Now."
Photo upload window opens.
Click "Browse" and select photo. Click Open.
"Photo" field stays empty.
Click in "Photo" field and try typing path.
"Choose File to Upload" window opens.
Click in Caption field and backtab into "Photo" field. Enter path, click Add.
Window closes but "No photos yet."
