Just a guess: could the value that follows query_name be too long? If it is, then, ideally, the result shouldn't be something like 'unknown error', but either the value should be truncated or an understandable message be given. And preferably the field in the Create Page dialog should not allow values that are too long in the first place.
As I said, just a guess, it might be something completely different.

Which process are you talking about here? Uploading is very different than attaching unless you're talking about the process of uploading AND attaching?

Sounds to me like a connectivity problem on your end, not anything wrong with the editor or the site.

Have you tried a different browser.

hi Matt -- I'm talking about the link in the sidebar that you get when editing a page. Add Image -- Create New --> and then that whole process. However, I also get the problem when I edit a page. After clicking the Submit Changes button, I get the problems I described in my earlier post. It's not always the IE error page, sometimes it's a blank SP page with just the text at the bottom. Next time, I'll grab a screenshot and post it.

I do use Chrome as well as IE but haven't tried this process in Chrome. Personally, I'd be fine just using Chrome when I want to be on SP but lots and lots of people use IE.

Why does today's POTD (the climbing bear) not show on the front page? A bug or have wildlife photos been banned from the front?

POTD is the best pic from the last 48 hrs instead of the last 24. That way it has been submitted a full 24+ hrs rather than less than 24 hrs. So it will be one day delayed from what it was before.

Implemented this for two reasons:

1. Allows more members time to vote on what they like, especially if they are used to using the best photos in a day link on the home page.
2. Removes some of the incentive to post photos just after midnight. Now pics submitted at 8:00 AM, or noon, or even in the afternoon have time to rise to the top. Previously afternoon submissions were at a severe disadvantage.

Wildlife photos will never be banned from the process or even a consideration. It is entirely automated and up to the members' votes to pick the winner.

OK here is a real trivial bug... but I will post it anyway in case it is super easy to fix.

In the climber's log on our profile pages sometimes the parent of a page doesn't display. This often happens when a object has something attached as 'related'. I have cleaned some of these up, as generally making something a parent or child is a better fit anyway. But ideally we would either get rid of 'related' or make it so that it doesn't cause this issue.

But sometimes there is something called 'Resources' that does this. Where does this 'Resources' come from? It isn't an attachment. Look at the Mount Shasta page for example (pic below). And when I clicked it, it took me to Groupon.com!
