Sumea Profile Jpeg Issue

Forum: 

Hi All,

I just wrote a large post and lost it all thanks to the fact that I didn't put my password in, then clicked 'Post New Topic' and was greeted with an error screen and a back button, on clicking it I found that my text was erased.... good times, maybe if the person who wrote the scripts for this site reads this post, they will shed a tear for me. I know I have cried for all the people who have suffered at the hands of my code.

Anywhose, I spent a bit of time working on some programmer art for a profile picture, but alas, I can't seem to be able to get it to upload as a valid jpeg. I have tried every setting I can find related to jpegs (standard/web optimized etc) and cannot satisfy the requirements of this mysterious jpeg uploader. Maybe someone can have a look at my .psd file and produce a valid 100x100 jpeg below 10k for me, because, for teh love of teh god, I cannot do it (who would have thought being an artist could be so hard [:p]).

Cheers,

mySpline

Yeh, the forum does that for some strange reason. Don't blame me, I have nothing to do with it [:)] I guess the valuable lesson here is to log in to the forum before making a post, or enter your username and password details if you're doing a quick reply.

As for the jpg, did you name it as .jpg or .jpeg?

jpg is the default output from CS2, is that suffix bad?

Here's the jpg I tried to upload

If you use the .jpg suffix, it should upload with no problem, no matter what browser you're using. What error message are you getting?

Hi Souri,

That's the problem, there's no error message when I upload the jpg, it seems to work fine, but my profile jpg doesn't exist.

I'm clueless...

Ok, I'm a grade a idiot. I had a typo on profile pages so nobody's avatar was showing up properly. You uploaded the files fine, the page was just not pointing to the right pic.

You should be a programmer Souri, we get paid good money to make those kinds of mistakes [:D]

hey, my avatar's not showing up on my page ( http://www.sumea.com.au/sprofile.asp?member=444 ) either - could it be the same bug?

page is trying to reference http://www.sumea.com.au/simages2/p__444.jpg , which doesn't seem to exist.

...and is it possible to show our 'customised' journal colourscheme when linking in directly from the "latest journal entries" links on the front page ( link to http://www.sumea.com.au/sprofilepic.asp?news=1895 ) instead of the default blue?

...and i'm thirsty - do something about that too please

Ah yeh, it's the same typo [:X]

I've made a quick fix so that customised journals will show for journal posts without pictures.
