Cannot upload photo images. Also won't let me cut and paste a screen capture of the error message. And, no, not oversized images. 600x396, 70 KB. Was doing this a couple days ago to but I got it to work later. Also saw a comment on this in the RTT thread.

"Oops! We ran into some problems."

"The upload failed because the file could not be written to the server. The site administrator will need to resolve this before any files can be uploaded."

This happened to me. I resized my picture and it posted. It that's what the error message is trying to convey I wish it would just say image to big.

My image was downsized to 600x396 and only 79KB so it isn't size. It does seem to work after a few tries, sometimes.

Just about every photo I try to post it says the file is too big. I assume they’re still using 1990’s and early 2000’s tech. All good.

I can upload gifs but I tried to upload a pic I got from someone that drove past JTS in the construction thread a few days ago and it wouldn’t let me even when I made it smaller.

Yes, I’ve tried multiple times to upload the **** Iowa gif and it’s not working. Unacceptable. People need to see that!

I uploaded one photo for the JTS Improvements thread, typed a bit, then when I tried to upload a second, got the error message listed above. No idea what changed in that few minutes.

^ This. Intermittent and totally unpredictable.

Thanks guys. I'm on it.
While you are at it, check out the search engine...hasn't been looking for me.
Edit: Having so many issues with this site that it is no longer usable on a predictable basis. Issues with both mobile and computer...

Tried uploading and "cut and paste" images all this week. Nothing works. I even tried to upload the message from the screenshot but it won't upload and says the site manager needs to address it.

testing upload of small file from laptop confuser:

And " The upload failed because the file could not be written to the server. The site administrator will need to resolve this before any files can be uploaded."
