Forum Gremlins!
« on: February 20, 2014, 02:10:22 am »
For some odd reason, the attachment uploader (what I use to put pics on etc.) has not been working for a while now. Keep getting this error message:

An Error Has Occurred!
Your attachment couldn't be saved. This might happen because it took too long to upload or the file is bigger than the server will allow.
Please consult your server administrator for more information.


The last pic I tried was a mere 140kb jpeg, so I'm thinking size isn't the problem.

Any ideas?

Also, how comes the youtube videos aren't embedding anymore?

Anyone?

Or is this just me?!  ???

Any help would be, umm, helpful. Thanks in advance.

I am afraid to say that when it comes to picture size and jpegs I am completely mystified. I did upload a You Tube video (is it actually a video??) a few weeks ago and it seemed to work ok. Sorry not to be more helpful.

Guess it could be out of space - I'll have a walk through the settings and see if I can work it out.

Removed a bunch of old attachments - not sure if that will help or not.

Just tried to upload a small jpg of about 120kb... still got this.

"Your attachment couldn't be saved. This might happen because it took too long to upload or the file is bigger than the server will allow. Please consult your server administrator for more information."

How very, very odd!

Sorry, realised what it was. I had to change some permissions because spam was getting into the site (in the folders). Turns out the provider I'm using doesn't allow fine grained permissions, so blocking one thing blocked everything from being uploaded.
I'm working on moving hosting to my home, then I'll be able to sort it out. I'm sorry if it means we're missing something amazing.  ;)

Well I did have some new pics of the JFK assassination which conclusively proves the triangulation of crossfire theory, plus some decent blackmail snaps of a high ranking British politician... but I guess they'll just have to wait.

I'm sure no one would be interested in them.  It's not like it's a new chocolate bar or anything ;)

Now there's a thought. Given the American tradition for quaintly-named chocolate bars (Oh Henry!, Baby Ruth) - how about Grassy Knoll??

Wow... over a month since the last post. Is this really IT for the good old chocolate forum? Damn you, Facebook! (Shakes fist in Mark Zuckerberg's direction...)

I posted some stuff on the 'old' and 'new' threads. Surely that wasn't a month ago??

My fault for not doing enough promo really - that and yes, everybody is either facebooking, twittering or commenting on blog posts.
Finding that there's more I can now do via my phone that'll help me get some more updates, and I'm working on changing my hosting which should also provide some new opportunities.
Thanks for hanging in there :)
