Attaching Pictures
« on: August 24, 2009, 06:22:36 PM »
I just tried to attach some pictures to a post and this message came up:

"The upload folder is full. Please try a smaller file and/or contact an administrator."

So I tried attaching one small file and it gave me the same message. Anyone know why? Kinda of worrying :-\

I think we're gonna disable this feature altogether. We can't keep upping the limits time after time after time. It's probably best to put your photos on Flickr or Photobucket or wherever and embed them, rather than trying to have us host them here. We're not a file hosting site. :)

I got the same message to, so try using photobucket and to copy them. I will have to have my computer savy son helpme with this. We all do enjoy putting up pictures here in almost every thread from time to time. Ok m2 thanks.

No! Please don't. I like to upload the occasional picture from my own pictures folder and I don't want to have to go through Photobucket because my computer is so slow. :-[

I've tried to attach pictures from Picasa, but all I get is a white box with a red x in it.

Pretty easy considering my laptop is a slow piece of space junk :)
