Title: Unable to Post (will this show up ?)
Post by: Steve1 on May 21, 2022, 02:28 PM
Tried twice to post a reply to reply to the "No Domino, No Problem thread", but was unsuccessful.   When I hit "post", the message window just clears all my text and attachments, and nothing is posted.
So I try creating a new thread, same thing.
I had (7) x 1.5 MB .jpg attachments, but I thought limit was 40 MB ?
Shows I am logged in -- says Hello Steve1 at the top right

Is the forum software having a bad hair day, or is it on my end ?

EDIT - OK, got it to post.  I had a feeling it was the attachments, so I posted a reply with only one image. It was successful.
So then I went back and "modified" my post to add 3 more images.
Then modified my post again to add the last 3 images.

Sorry the forum was giving you trouble. When that type of thing happens it is almost always the size of the images or an attachment has a corrupted file.

  Resizing the pics generally helps a lot.

Yeah, I had a feeling it was the attachments.

On my first try, the images were 2.5 MB each.
I resized them to just under 1.5 Mb each, but I guess that wasn't enough.
