Troubles uploading pictures for member news

Forum: 

Just wondering how to fix this...

I can upload the thumbnailes ok. I go to the news add that. Then I went to upload the large pictures and had troubles.

I found that if I uploaded 5 images that the page would give me a 505 error.

If I uploaded 4 images it said it was uploaded and complete. But when one of the thumbnails was clicked on it would not display the corrosponding large image - just the friendly little red x.

Also, Joel helped me get the images the right size etc so I do not think its an issue with the images themselves.

Just checked out what you uploaded:

70_TIME_in-game01.jpg
70_TIME_in-game01_L.jpg
70_TIME_in-game02.jpg
70_TIME_in-game02_L.jpg
70_TIME_in-game03.jpg
70_TIME_in-game03_L.jpg
70_TIME_in-game04.jpg
70_TIME_title-menu.jpg
70_TIME_title-menu_L.jpg

The larger images shouldn't have the "_" characters in there.. the correct way to name them would be:

70_TIME_in-game01.jpg
70_TIME_in-game01L.jpg
70_TIME_in-game02.jpg
70_TIME_in-game02L.jpg
70_TIME_in-game03.jpg
70_TIME_in-game03L.jpg
70_TIME_in-game04.jpg
70_TIME_title-menu.jpg
70_TIME_title-menuL.jpg

btw, these thumbnails were over 3k, so were truncated..
70_TIME_in-game02.jpg
70_TIME_title-menu.jpg

Not sure what the 505 error is - did it say antyhing about a script time out error? That might happen if you upload a tonne of large images with a dialup modem.. the asp code would actually time out if the upload takes too long. You can always go back and reupload what's missing.

hmmm didn't pay attention but more then likely that would be the case on the 505

Now off to kick joel a bit *kicks joel* :)
