I tried with Firefox and IE.

Thanks.


I have a similar problem. I try to sign in but when I click on sign in it goes to my profile page instead of the sign in page yet I am not signed in and cannot vote on stuff. It is fixed when I clear my cache. Clearing cookies didn't help. It has happened several times now and is easy to get rid of but ideally shouldn't happen at all. There are lots of people out there that don't know about clearing stuff. I should add that it only happens sometimes.

I just posted a gear review on the Salewa Raven Combi GTX mountaineering boot. It posted, but won't let me attach the image. I've uploaded the image, and am cut/pasting the image ID and have triple checked that it's right. However, it won't allow the primary pic, or any pics to be attached into the body of the post. Just letting you know! Thanks!

The image is uploaded to SummitPost.org, not to the gear section of SummitPost. So when you put in the object ID 838810, it doesn't find the image in the gear_images table. The image needs to be uploaded to the gear portion of the site here:
http://www.summitpost.org/outdoor-gear/ ... nt_id=8467

Then it can be set as the primary image.

I just did that for you :)

I can log in and post from my phone, but if I try to log in from my computer it never takes me to the login box. It just takes me straight to my profile page, but I can never log in. On my phone it works fine.

Have you tried clearing your browser cookies? If you willing to go an extra step, clear you cache as well. Somethings have changed since SP V3 which I've cleared my cache and cookies. And if that still doesn't fix your problem could you please provide us with what browser you use? Browser version helps a little too.

Log out first. Then log back in. Everything will be fixed.

Instead of taking you to your profile page, it should take you to a page telling you to log out and log back in.

This issue gets reported more than any other...

I've been trying to use the new "insert video" function and all it does is display the code to the YouTube video I'm trying to post. I've used both the straight URL and the embedded URL and neither works. The "what's new" section doesn't have any details on how this works. Any hints or tips would be much appreciated. :?:


Thanks,

Bob

@reboyles: Link please. When problems occur, they often don't happen on our end. As a result we need a real life example to use our detective skills at finding what causes the issue. 8)

BTW, for inserting video's into pages, insert the embed code (iframe). It's HTML so it doesn't work the same as a forum.

Thanks!

I got it. The frame tip did it. I re-sized the frame to fit my page better and it works great. Here's the code I used.

<iframe width="320" height="180" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/ooqHRxHop0Y?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Here's the page I put it on. That's a first for me on SP (adding a video). How cool is that?

Good use of formatting on that page. Glad that worked out for you. :)

Glad you were able to figure out how to embed the video Bob! (Thanks Josh for helping him figure it out so quickly).

And that's a nice looking page you have there! Did you do most of that work with the new editor?

I did all of my work in the new editor with the exception of adding new sections. I didn't see how to do that so I switched to the old editor for that function. I always used to struggle with formatting when I mixed text and graphics in the same section but adding tables sure solved that problem. Great improvement guys, I love it.

At one point the page switched into what looked like Dreamweaver with the split screen for editing. I don't know how I did that.
