uploading from mobile device issues
« on: December 10, 2016, 06:59:38 AM »
I have been trying to attach an image to a post but it will not work.
I hit "attachments and other options" select "inline photo" then hit "choose file"
This then takes me to a screen where I can select the image gallery of my phone, I then select and image to load but when I hit it to attach the screen reloads back to a blank post text box, even if I had text written in it.
Is this me (likely Its my ancient pos phone) or is it a site issue?
Thanks for any assistance

I have been having this exact issue also, Apparently the forum is fine so the issue is on our ends.
I tried using file sizes well below 700kb and also tried using all of the different options on the attachments menu, I ended up having to use Flickr and then insert the links for the photos.

I hit "attachments and other options" select "inline photo" then hit "choose file"

Choose the display option after you have selected the image. Try it that way. As long as the image isnt too big (which it often is on phones) it should work as above.
