Loading multiple images for 1 post

Hi all, wondering if someone can help? I'm using a Mac & uploading from flickr. When I have multiple images to upload to a single post I find I have to select "Save" after each image to create another Body (Edit summary) window for the next image, this results in showing a number of comments being posted. I notice that all of you are posting multiple images for a single post without creating multilpe comments. How?

Cheers.

At least you are posting from flickr, lucky you. I'm still waiting for the "Internet Explorer problem" to be fixed.They said it would be looked at, but that was 2 weeks ago by now. Do we still think it's going to happen?

Hi Dennis

When you're adding your photo's into your new thread, how do you do it?  I mean, do you use the URL from flickr & just paste it in the "image" box (that box that looks like a landscape picture in the bar above the text/body of your post)?

Yes, I did realise the Internet Explorer issue was still there smiley.  But as Dennis can upload from flickr now I imagine he's simply using a different browser, especially as he uses a Mac - so just offering him some help with the new query re multiple images in a post.

Annie, what you say above is correct, thats exactly how I upload from Flickr. After I Paste the URL into the "Image" box & click "Save" a new comment box appears but the next image is then uploaded as a reply. If I dont click "Save" after the 1st image is uploaded there is no "comment" box for the 2nd image and it doesnt matter what I try nothing seems to open another "comment" box.

Ick, sounds like a doozey! frown  What happens if you do this:

  • Open image box
  • Under "image info" tab paste URL in URL box, like you normally would, hit O.K. (should take you back to comment box and pic appears)
  • Then don't click save, but click on image box again.  Does the image box come up again for you to paste another photo URL in?

Sorry if you've already explained all that and I'm just being thick, blush  just trying to get the gist.  Also, which browser are you using?

Annie, just tried what you suggested above, so this time I didnt hit save after uploading the 1st image & instead clicked on the image box again & pasted the 2nd image URL and yes it worked. I new it would be something simple like that I must have tried everything else but that so thanks for your help again. Cheques in the mailwink

Cheers.

Hi guys

 

Dennis glad you got it sorted - sorry my instructions the other day mustn't have worked!

re IE - I had said I would update when I had something to report. Web support have worked on a number of issues for us this week and I received a status update this morning. I will advise when testing is successful and the change is implemented.

For the people who asked...

As Dennis is on a mac he is most likely using Safari.

ML just bite the bullet and download Firefox (or even Safari for PC). I build websites (among other things) and IE is always the biggest problem. They have really dropped the ball over the past 5-6 years.

Thanks Richard everything is working well now. My problem was with IE 11, but it's fixed now.
