  • Problems uploading pics.

    Probably a newbie mistake but I can't seem to get the Manage Attachments section to work.
    I've reviewed the instructions, reviewed other posting with similar problems, did what was suggested but still can seem to get it to work.
    I create a new posting, click on Manage Attachments, click browse, select the path of my picture, click upload....
    I then get a Internet Explorer error message in the same window stating that "The Page can not be displayed" and that the server is not responding or that my settings may not be correct.
    I checked what the error suggested to check and all seems right.
    I attempted last night and this morning with the same results. I can't see the server being down that long. But nothing is impossible.
    I even tried attaching a pic using the insert photo Icon (paper clip) above where I am typing. It takes me to the same screen of the Manage Attachments, with the same results.

    Any suggestions??

    It is a misleading error message from IE.

    Check the size of your picture: you are most likely over the limit allowed of 780 X 580 pixels

    I fretted (pun intended) over the same error message for a week before finaly figuring it out.

      Thanks for the suggestion Marcel. I had checked that before posting. I did recheck and all of my photos had been reduced to apx. 500 pix wide by 300 long. Well with in the parameters required. I have sent a e-mail to the website directly. Maybe they can shed some light.
      thanks for the response.

        Send me the photos and I'll see if I can upload them...sometimes the board can be a little touchy!

          Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

          Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

          Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

          Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

          I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

          Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
