Technical Problems

Post by Feather on 19th April 2017, 19:06

(originally posted on 28 Jan 2008 04:01 pm)


Not sure where to post this so started new thread. I'm trying to get an avatar on here .
It is not too big and I get it right up to the point where I press the submit button but
then nothing happens. Is there a general problem or is it me???

Hi Feather,

The board is set up that Avatars may only be downloaded from those saved on your own computer, i.e. you cannot download direct from another website. (this is purely for safety reasons and to ensure the smooth running of the forum, as often when avatars are brought in from other websites they bring with them the problem of pop-ups, scam or worse).

The maximum pixels are 150 x 150, and cannot be more than 6144 Bytes in size.

If you see avatars on another website that you would like, you can always save to your own computer first and so long as it complies with the size restrictions above should be no problem.

Having said that, even if it doesn't come in the box the first time you might just have to repeat a few times before it's successful, this is quite normal and probably happens with everyone - did with me (you should see an instruction note telling you that) while you're downloading.

I think that's what I did. I saved it to my desktop first. I'll keep trying as I'm sure it's not too big.

Now it's telling me it must be a certain type of file. It was one of those allowed--.jpg
The submit button is OK now but the avatar is being rejected although it is a correct type of file.
It doesn't violate any of the set rules as far as I can see.

OK, louby. I understand that. My avatar is the right size and the right typen of file.
Either the submit button won't respond or I'm told that it's not an acceptable file type
but it is one of those allowed.

Hi Feather - I THINK I've rectified what might have been the problem.... Discovered that I was blocking cookies on my computer altogether, explains why been having so much trouble getting into spiritlove at times, and even into here. But I've sorted it now (I hope).
So it's TEA AND COOKIES ALL ROUND from now on. (altho to be honest the day I've had today gonne need something a bit more stronger than TEA ....) phew!!
Good luck with the avatar. If you still have probs after this let me know and I'll contact Support see if they can advise. x

Sorry to say I'm still having the same problem. The submit button is working OK but
I keep getting the notice about some files not being allowed but the one I'm trying to put
in is one that is allowed. .jpg Sad Sad

Hi Feather - seems I'm the one with the technical problems. Can't get into spiritlove at all ... posted a further to reply to a certain visitor which just disappeared when I tried to submit it, intermittent getting in here, like now - so just making the most of it while i am here. can't even get into the support forum. I'm going demented here.
I found that one of the lights gone on my modem and discovered one of the cats playing with the wire think she's dislodged something.
I'm off to bed now, maybe things will look different in the fresh light of day..

Good morning everyone.

Poppy has an apology to make ... (she's the culprit who managed to loosen the wire on my router and caused me so much hassle yesterday)

meeeeeeaowww ... didn't meant to cause a prob, was just so inviting those little twinkling flashing lights, just had to investigate. Won't do it again cos it's been hidden out of my reach now (spoilsport kitkat). I'm off now to torment some poor unsuspecting bird or mouse, much more exciting than your boring old router anyway

I still seem to having some problems, getting into here and on spiritlove too, and when I do get in sometimes when I submit a post then I'm thrown out of it again. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but obviously something. The support people said sounds like a DSN cache problem, and told me to delete my caches. .. i still don't really understand. I thought I had done that like they said, but when I can't get through with my favourites and I try searching for the website they everything comes up with 'cached page'. What does it mean - does anyone know? and how can I rectify it. I just have to make the most of when I do get in, could only be for a few precious moments - and then out I go again. It's so so frustrating.

Still cannot get an avatar accepted. Is anybody willing to try to change theirs? If it goes on OK, then I'll know it's
me who's doing something wrong. I know it's a lot to ask. Maybe somebody who doesn't have an avatar could try
to get one?? I've been trying for 3 days!!!!!!

If you're sure the file size isn't more than 6kb, I can't think what other problem there might be.
I had trouble trying to upload the URL directly from the site, but from my own desktop it was fine. It's usually ok when you upload directly from your PC onto the forum. Have you tried with more than one avatar ?
If you send the URL to admin or by PM to Candlelight, typed in by hand if it won't copy, perhaps they can locate the avatar directly on the site and set it up for you.

Oh dear ... Admin is me !    But yes Feather if you let me know what the URL is I'll do my best from this end and if I can't rectify it then I can check out the problem with Support.

O, Liz. You'll never know how glad I am to know that. This is my 3rd day on it too.
For a while the submit button didn't work, then the page couldn't be displayed,
then the file was too big and then it was the wrong type of file(but it wasn't really)
I've put avatars on before, many times now , but this one about has me beaten.
I WILL NOT GIVE UP YET. I'M DETERMINED TO KEEP TRYING FOR ANOTHER 3 DAYS!!!

It's more appropriate to this site than that, sammi. It's a bird of paradise.
Kitkat--what's all that on rainbow's site about zipping it up or running?
Don't worry if it's a joke at my expense----I can take it. I love jokes. xxx.

OK, kitkat. I think I get it. You were fed up with me and my avatar(and no wonder about that) so, following elly's picture, you made the joke
which can be taken 2 ways---zipping up the mouth or another place suited to the picture, in my case the mouth.Am I right? That's ok but we
need to be able to ask for help if we need it and I do think you should have used a pm. I'm not offended but someone else might be.I think you
meant it to be a pm but slipped up!! Now the joke's on you. Ha Ha. Abject apologies if I'm on the wrong track here but it's the only explanation
that makes sense to me. Come clean now, let's have a laugh and then move on. No harm done.xxx

er .... no Somehow we're on two separate tracks here Feather Elly put up a picture of a cd with 'Searcher' in the title and it was a 'zip cd' and said something like 'press here to run'
I made what I thought was a funny joke about it (which obviously wasn't that funny cos no-one else thought it was) must be my weird sense of humour - and now you can see why I'm not a regular in the jokes threads ...

I've not been able to get into the forum all day - until now 10.40 - and found i ws still logged in as well. Internet browser problems. Also got knocked out of spiritlove and can't get back in either, still now.

What a pest it is when that happens. Hope it'll be better for you tomorrow.

I've had problems this morning. Keep having to use roundabout ways in order to get in - the direct route doesn't work.

I get the roundabout routes too. I am so frustrated with this thing. Sometimes it's fine, but keeps changing back to default even though I tell it not to. Just got in now after a lot of roamin in the gloamin. How long will it stay like this? Who knows ...

So frustrating that I'm not able to get into Rainbows or Voldsy's, it's just hit and miss all the time - same with here actually. And then on the odd occasion when I do, I'm just in for a little time and knocked back out again. I think it's something to do with my web browser extensions, but whatever custom settings I put in they just revert back to the default again. Anyone got any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
Also, Favourites will work sometimes, but not others, and if I search with the https of all three forums it just keeps telling not found or internet cannot display page. It's all making me want to

I'll probably get knocked out of this now on posting.

No, it's not aol, Lynne. I think maybe I have two conflicting search engines or something like that.
When I get the email notification now when there's a new post I used to be able to click into it and connect to the site that way. I get the email but when I click in now it just says "cannot display page". so annoying.

But what would do without 'em tho, eh Lynne? I'd be completely lost without my little friend here. I know he's a bit unreliable at times but the pleasure I get from him in other ways makes up for that I suppose. (and yes - it is a HE, typically unreliable, erratic and attention seeking - but we wouldn't be without them for the world ) ... ha ha

I couldn't get in here on Saturday. Kept getting a message that there were no nodes available (whatever they are!).

Nodes?? - They must be the computer spirits, you know like leprechauns, but instead of mending shoes their job is to look after the computer. Maybe they felt like a little holiday this weekend - after all they have been working very hard.
Anyway, they seem to be back from their hols now, refreshed and rearing to go.
Thank you Nodes for fixing whatever my problem was here - and welcome back!

Most definitely, Candlelight, but in the meantime I've solved the problem. The bbcode was disabled in my profile.
Wonder who could've done that!!!!!! MEEEE!!!!

Had a lot of problems with my computer these last 2 days and haven't been able to get in to the forum here at all, or Spiritlove forum. Hopefully now I've sorted all the probs, and seems to be running fine now both places. I'm keeping my fingers crossed anyway. I've really missed ye all! xxx
It's a bit late now, sleepy .... but hope to be all back to "normal" tomorrow. Until then - Thought for the Day will have to be - "Make sure to set aside time to rest and recharge the batteries!"

PS: Feather - I'm glad you got your avatar problem sorted. :D I like the new one too!
