Add a letter s to your http link and try again.

Thanks for getting back to me!

I tried adding the 's' to http in front of cellar.org but, unfortunately, that didn't help when I tried a couple of minutes ago.

The image I was attempting to upload is in My Docs.

Please forgive my brevity but I'm in the middle of preparing lunch and just dashed in here for a quick look! :thumb:

ETA

I've just had a further attempt at adding 's' after http and I've been able to post an image!
As noted, I was a bit rushed in my previous attempt so perhaps attention to detail suffered.
BTW, it's Post #247 in the 'Horses' thread.

I think that you have hit the nail on the head, Clod. Many thanks!

Further edit:

I've just looked at my Bookmarks and found that the address for the site lacked the 's'.
I've now amended it to https://www.cellar.org/ so with luck the problem won't manifest itself again!

Thank you for your forbearance of my ineptitude. :)

Sadly I spoke too soon.

Flushed with the success of posting an image in the 'Horses' thread I went ahead with a follow up to the Ulysse/Virginia collision in 'Ships'.
I'd collected quite a bit of info and finished off with an upload of the container ship under way.
Except that the upload wouldn't play the game.
At that point I gave up.
Heaven knows what it is going on...

You said that the bookmark lacked the 's' so you amended it. Did you do that by going to the web page https://www.cellar.org/ and saving it to your bookmarks/favorites again?

No, I amended the bookmark properties box, to the best of my recollection.
I'm pretty sure it had the desired effect.
I'm posting on my iPad at the moment but I'll check my PC in the morning and get back to you.

Many thanks,

C.

You said you couldn't post that ship picture. Did it refuse to take the picture or everything went as normal except the picture didn't show up in the post?

I previewed the entire post but the ship picture didn't show, just the text description, ie the file name, size, etc.

I had several attempts to upload the picture but none appeared in the preview so I abandoned the effort without posting.

In similar circumstances in the past I found that the image wouldn't appear when I actually submitted the post, just the text as above.

Hope that makes sense. It's early!

Update...

Back on my PC now. I deleted the Cellar bookmark and re-instated it with the https version.

I've tried another image upload and this is what I get on the preview:


Attachment 65434

Edit:

Dammit! The preview shows the file information but the image appears in the post!
That never happened until recently. I was always able to see the complete final version of the post in the preview pane.

The words 'live with it' spring to mind.

Clodfobble 11-01-2018 08:38 AM

Well, the picture is lovely. :)

And also appearing in the 'Ships' thread where all the trouble started! ;)

I couldn't have helped anyway, but, I misunderstood your problem. I haven't seen the actual pic in the preview for ages and ages.

I asked about it a good long while back, but nothing came of it.

It fixed itself, but, then reverted back to no pic in preview. Like you said, I've been 'living with it.'

ETA: Damn. I've been living with it for 6 yrs?:eek:

It's something of a shame that the finished article can't be previewed in its entirety, so I shall just have to learn to 'fly blind'. :eek:

xoxoxoBruce 11-01-2018 11:01 PM

It should show in the preview.
