I cannot reply to threads again!

Post by carld05 »

Yesterday I was able to reply to a post in Building Tools with a picture and start a new post in Show It Off with 3 pictures. When I tried to do a reply to that post to add more pics I was logged off the website again. The log off persists so I'm again in the same status as before. I can start a reply but it kicks me out when I add a file or hit the submit button. It appears that Sean fixed it but it didn't last for long.

I was able to add this post though, am I doing something else wrong?

No, a HP laptop and the pics are from a Minolta camera downloaded into the laptop and resized for web pages (30kb to 40kb).

sometimes the photo file size may be too large
that you can post here is telling me you may need to resize your photos
I think you may see a warning on that when you post

I don't think that's the problem. I was able to post 4 photos that I had reduced to 40kb yesterday before I started getting kicked out again. I've seen the warning you referenced before, but it didn't come up at all on any posts I've done over the last year since I've been using Office to reduce them to website size on kitguitars or OLF or acousticguitarconstructionforum. What did Sean do that allowed me to do the two posts yesterday? Why didn't it last?

I've tried several more times today with no luck.

John,
It seems that when I try to add a file (a picture) to a post is when I get kicked off the website. I tried yesterday and today waiting over 2 minutes per instructions in the sticky post above. I replied to Pete in building tools today and it went through, but trying to add a pic to my post in Show It Off didn't work.
