I think there's a problem only with the first attachment slot. If you skip the first one and use the other one it appear to be working fine.


This workaround is still working for me. Last night I posted a mini how-to with 10 pics; deliberately did not wait for all the pics and just hit [POST]. eevBlog gagged on it for a few seconds, then popped up a THERE HAS BEEN A NEW POST warning. But after I clicked [POST] again, all the pics came up without issue; they were even in the right order for a change.

This has been working perfect for me too.  :)

Pauses between Post and the forum showing the post are due to the time it takes for attachments to load whereas when you place an attachment in the first box it gets loaded onto the database before posting.

Like others I now just skip the first Attachment box and sidestep all the grief of needing to fix busted image links later.  :horse:

I haven't had an issue posting single images, only counts >1 seem to be an issue.  Is that true for you as well?

I believe so......not 100% sure.
Never had issues until a few days ago when other images/attachments I'd posted got linked into the wrong posts.  :o
Had to delete the attachments and re-upload them then re-link them to where they needed to be.
Annoying but fixable.  :phew:

Rarely use the direct embed image thing or the drag and drop instead sticking to the old method we've had for years until recently when it corrupts links from thumbnails to between [i m g] link [/ i m g] flags whereas from the 2nd attachment box seems to work fine....for now.  :-\

Underneath the post, I see a small preview of someone's lab.
When I click to enlarge, I get a printscreen of a free energy blog post.
Is something off?

People! It’s a known issue, and it’s got nothing to do with your browser cache or anything, as it’s purely a server database problem. It seems to be triggered by interrupted posting.


In fact, over the last week, I've editing my posts, deleting & re-uploading images again & again.
Does anyone know what's been going on?
Yes.

See what the server admin has said, starting here: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/website-error-reports/msg3107598/#msg3107598

I have managed to replicate this, it seems to be caused when you try to post the message before the attachment has finished uploading, or you cancel an attachment and then upload another. Still trying to nut down the exact sequence of events that cause it.
This is not the bug I'm getting.  I've have waited for images and other attachments to upload, like tiny ones of 10-75kb files.  They are fine for anywhere around 1 hour to 5 days, then the files either get corrupt or replaced with other files.

The tiny icon versions seem to have the right image, but the real photo inside isn't the right one, yet, a few days ago, everything was correct.

Example:
Bad file: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/modern-equivalent-of-74hc4046-pll/msg3153558/#msg3153558
Second image is wrong: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/modern-equivalent-of-74hc4046-pll/msg3154396/#msg3154396
First image bad: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/modern-equivalent-of-74hc4046-pll/msg3152154/#msg3152154
Wrong image: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/modern-equivalent-of-74hc4046-pll/msg3152816/#msg3152816
First 2 images wrong: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/modern-equivalent-of-74hc4046-pll/msg3147392/#msg3147392
Third image wrong image: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/modern-equivalent-of-74hc4046-pll/msg3147392/#msg3147392

Back on the 25th, almost all these images were good.

Yeah, that's because you uploaded other files thereafter; THEY borked your attached files further back in the timeline. Has happened to my pics kaboodles of times over the last month; sometimes days later. This NO LONGER HAPPENS if I do not use the first attachment radio button as shown above.

Side stepping the first attachment button as is norm these days to get reliable links to thumbnails has worked like a charm however an interesting development today with a thumbnail not being a thumbnail !  :o  :-//

I've seen that too, but it always seemed to be related to a failed upload via the current 1st button PITA. Have not personally experienced it since using the workaround.

Is it possible you accidentally forgot and used the first button? I have a few times and paid the price. :-DD

FWIW I have been using the, skip the first slot, method for the last week or so and have not seen any problems yet.

Yet it seems pretty reliable other than the one hiccup I had.

Mmkay... I just had a bona-fide FAIL of the "Skip the first" workaround.

Tried to post a 492K gif (seen below; is supposed to be animated); eevBlog gagged on it and then gave the "a new post has been made" popup. Then, the giant blank thumbnail FAIL. Then, new behavior, returned an Error 404 when I clicked on the link in the message. Eventually gave up and just linked from giphy.com.

For historical record, high demand on the TEA thread: 20 regular named users, 66 visitors at the time.

[EDIT]

GIF wound up here: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/test-equipment-anonymous-(tea)-group-therapy-thread/?action=dlattach;attach=1038938;image

Attached to this post from 2 days ago: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/test-equipment-anonymous-(tea)-group-therapy-thread/msg3168730/#msg3168730

It displaced the image of a Grid laptop; which then displaced another image somewhere, I'm sure. :palm:

Cheers,

Errors still poping up and the second file attachments slot BS doesn't help either.  Even on files as small as 2kb.
A 0.97 kbyte file completely dissipated which now reports '404 - Attachment not found'.

TEST. I have disabled the line attachments plugin to see if it makes a difference.

Okay... so this means we'll have to use img tags for inline pix? No problem. It'll encourage people (I hope) to use the height= & width= modifiers to limit eye pollution. :-+

Nope. Still messing with our heads if we use the first attachment button. Attachment made here: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/test-equipment-anonymous-(tea)-group-therapy-thread/msg3181178/#msg3181178

was supposed to be this:

Instead it cascaded back to here, displacing the exploding head emoji: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/test-equipment-anonymous-(tea)-group-therapy-thread/msg3181032/#msg3181032

The image of Ferengi Quark it linked to instead was from a THIRD post, which appears unchanged: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/test-equipment-anonymous-(tea)-group-therapy-thread/msg3181088/#msg3181088



I'm going back to the "Skip the first" workaround.

Thanks for trying, Dave!  :-+
