Help! Help! Pretty, pretty please. I need to edit Can't Post

and put in an attachment, and the directions is the FAQ's don't make sense to me. I tried to find Magpie's directions which were simple and I understood, but I can't find them, and the editing time is up (Tolkienia post on main).

Hoe do I attach a doc. from my computer? And since the time has expired, could an admin do it for me?

Oh, and my next to last link isn't working. Here is possibly a better one, if a kind Admin could replace it for me, and check if it works? https://picasaweb.google.com/notesedit/September212013?authkey=Gv1sRgCJmZkoTN88SZcw#5926240426801880242

Thanks so much!

Please provide a link to the post that you want edited. [In reply to] Can't Post

I can update the link for you, but it would be best if you could upload the document from your computer (in a reply to your post). I'm sure that magpie will spot your post here and can give you some more pointers on how to do it.

plus the link.

The actual right link, which seems to work for me is: https://picasaweb.google.com/notesedit/September212013?authkey=Gv1sRgCJmZkoTN88SZcw#5926240426801880242

And I already did the separate post, so that should be fine. it took me awhile, but I finally found the link to Magpie's directions.

Hmm. [In reply to] Can't Post

When I try that link, I get an error message. In fact, I get error messages for all the picasaweb links. I'm not sure what the problem is...are you still able to access all of those files?

Yes, they all [In reply to] Can't Post

work, except for the next-to-last one on that post. The new one (above post) works fine. They all work, even from a different user account on my computer (only computer I have so I can't test it on a different one). I signed out of Picasa to see if that changed anything, and they still work both ways.

I'll check my Picasa settings, but this is awfully weird!

This is very odd. [In reply to] Can't Post

I am getting error messages on all picasaweb images, not only yours. It comes up as an "internal server error", so maybe it's temporary? It'll be difficult to help while I can't see them, though. Frown

I'll put a call out to the other Admins to drop by and see if they can use the links and help you out.

Could there be a bug or a glitch on the TORn website? [In reply to] Can't Post

That is strange!

Saruman, I'm sure of it (because we pilfered Orthanc for our gift shopSly).

It's possible [In reply to] Can't Post

that I'm just running into a local issue and someone from a different area wouldn't have any trouble. I've left a message on the Admin board for others to come take a look. Hopefully the problem is just me. Smile

All done [In reply to] Can't Post

I can see all the links and was able to edit them into your post. I think you either had bad links to begin with (maybe a character or two was cut off), or there was a glitch on picassa that made the links bad. Either way, they work fine now, plus it seems like you're doing fine, otherwise, when you insert pictures and/or links.

Chalk it up to another glitch in the internet matrix (but not on TORn's end)!

Clarification [In reply to] Can't Post

I can see the new links you gave. The old ones were giving me the same error message it sounds like Silvelode was getting. I'm betting it was some glitch at picassa because otherwise you seem to be doing great with inserting pictures and links! So, nothing wrong with your abilities or TORn.

did you get the attachment issue sorted out? [In reply to] Can't Post

You just choose a file from your computer, I'm betting it can't have spaces in the name (although I can't say for sure without trying it out) and it has to be under the file size limit which is somewhere around 45KB.

Below the compose window is the Attachment controls. Choose file and click 'Upload Attachment'.

That's it. You tick the inline if you want to make an image inline but if it's just an attachment, you don't need to do that. I've attached mp3 files and I think some people have attached docs and pdfs.

Links to my image posting tutorial is in my footer so you just have to find one of my posts to access it.

Of course! [In reply to] Can't Post

The second set of links you provided were golden. All you needed was someone to help get them in to your post. Smile
