Pics on my thread.

I've got some river entries to make on my "Water Temp" thread but every time I try to preview my post complete with images I get "Access Forbidden" and when I click "back" all of my content has been wiped. I was attempting to upload images of 800x600 resolution which I always use.

I've got to post this message because I don't know the new site admin - clicking on "The Team" reveals a blank page.

Pete, I've drawn this to Mark's attention. Are you using the same host for your images as previously, eg, flickr?

Thanks guys, problem seems to have been sorted but it could still be a problem that Mark might have to look into. I've just posted on my thread, including photos, using Chrome and adding the images caused no problems. I usually use Firefox but I neglected to turn off automatic updating - the problem seems to have been down to a recent update. Coincidentally Firefox stopped playing Vimeo videos, I tried all Vimeo's suggestions and no luck. Looks like I'll have to reinstall the previous version of Firefox. I don't really like using Chrome because of Google's tracking what I'm doing.

I'm still using Flickr, it's a paid-for "Pro" account. OS: Windows XP Pro, SP3

Hi Pete, I'm glad you got it sorted. I don't know what the problem could have been, but the fact you are still using XP is likely to be the issue. You will find issue like this become more common if you do not upgrade to a supported OS.
