Is anyone else experiencing the same difficulty at present?
I normally use the "add file" function to upload my pictures then place them inline, but they simply do not seem to be uploading and giving me that option. Drag and drop not working either just getting a "javascript" error in the text.

I thought maybe it was my new phone causing the problem, so tried from a desktop file, nope, tried downsizing the files from 2mb to 200kb. Nothing.
Took a screen snip of the issue.... but realise i can't upload that either. :doh:

Interesting. Shortly after the forum changes were made to allow photos to be uploaded & placed inline like this, I briefly experienced exactly this problem. Couldn't correlate it with anything obvious like file size, browser etc. Came back later (following day maybe?) and all was working correctly. I put it down to teething problems or maybe finger trouble on my part and all has been fine since.

FWIW I've just uploaded a couple of photos on another thread, using drag & drop, and it worked fine.

Been trying for days, can't get photos to upload, either by using the attachment feature or the drag and drop. Ian

Right. So that's a picture I just nicked off Mr Keyser. And it uploads fine from my phone.

Yet pictures taken on my phone don't upload from my phone. But Jim K managed to upload a picture I forwarded to him.

I'm thinking it could be either the file size or the file name causing the problem.

If I upload a picture straight from the camera by taking it whilst on the forum, it is given a different file name and uploads fine.
