I was able to have string of no issues and upload the photos I wanted. I did stop cut and pasting text, not sure if this was the problem? Not sure if y'all need to worry about it since my photos did eventually upload. I will let you know if this error shows up again.

Please do. I'm sure it will. It could be something to do with an odd character (apostrophe, etc.). I don't know. I took the information from your query and added an image with it and it worked fine, so I'm not sure what happened.

But if I just type in the first word of the title or a key word in the title it brings up all of my images that contain that word and then I can add the image since it is in that group. I am using google chrome.

Can you give a specific example so I can test? I just tried with a few of my images and they are always returned when doing a search on the exact name of the image.
I posted a pic titled : Clear Lake and Mt. Konocti on the Mount Konocti page. When I put in just the word clear I was able to find it (and add it to the page) with others containing that word.

To fix your image you can do one of two things:
1) Edit the raw HTML by clicking the button on the far left side of the new editor or by using the old editor. Look for this
Code: Select all
src="/images/small/463877.JPG"
and change it to this
Code: Select all
src="/images/medium/463877.JPG"

2) Using the new editor, delete the image and reinsert it and then specify the width at 300px.

Let me know if you'd like help doing it or if you have more questions.


Hey Matt, that did the trick. Thanks very much for all your hard work and for addressing this particular questions for me. Many thanks!

Just inserted the image for you. You had it right except for the capitalization of jpg. You had "jpg" and it should have been "JPG" for the extension of the image.

Thanks.

That explains why it didn't work by trying to add it manually into the old editor, but the new editor (which was also tried) just has you select the image without typing in the "jpg". Using the new editor, I used "Insert Image" - "Search SP Image" - "Click image to use", and that one didn't seem to work either, but pulled up a blank after the changes were made (but strangely while in edit mode, the photo would show; just not after hitting "save changes"). Perhaps when replacing the photo, there is a glitch if the old and new photos have different capitalizations of "JPG"? (Or maybe I did something wrong in the old editor that caused it not to work or using the new editor didn't override the typo).

Not sure why it wouldn't work with the new editor. The new editor pulls the name of the photo from the database, so it shouldn't have had any issues with the capitalization of the extension.

If it helps, here are some more details.

Under the new editor, the photo would show up fine when working in "Edit Page" mode. On the main page, it showed up as a blank after save changes. Also, on the main page, when you clicked on the blank photo, it would go right to the one that was supposed to be displayed.

I guess I know how to fix it now, but hopefully the above is useful.

I've noticed that the new editor does some strange things with <br> tags. And with strange, I mean things I don't understand.

The latest example was that some <br> tags were removed when I submitted what I had created. That is, with the <br> tags where I wanted them everything looked fine in the editor, both in HTML and WISIWYG mode, but after submitting they were gone and the page didn't look quite right.

When I went back to edit it, I saw that some of the <br> tags were simply gone! I put them back in, submitted once more, and they were gone again! Apparently, it's not a one time glitch or some mistake I made, but something more fundamental.


This is what I had created in the editor:

Code: Select all
<noformat><center><table class="thumb"><tbody>
<tr>
  <th colspan="4"><b><i style="color: black;">Great views from the top of the west ridge of Uruashraju Norte</i></b></th>
</tr>
<tr>
  <td><div><div style="height: 207px;" class="image" align="center"><a href="/view_object.php?object_id=795502">
   <img alt="Uruashraju" src="/images/original/795502.jpg" height="190"></a><br>
   <span class="caption">Nevado Uruashraju beckons</span>
  </div></div></td>
  <td><div><div style="height: 207px;" class="image" align="center"><a href="/view_object.php?object_id=795534">
   <img alt="The ridge" src="/images/medium/795534.jpg" height="190"></a><br>
   <span class="caption">View down the ridge</span>
  </div></div></td>
  <td><div><div style="height: 207px;" class="image" align="center"><a href="/view_object.php?object_id=795508">
    <img alt="Huantsán" src="/images/medium/795508.jpg" height="190"></a><br>
    <span class="caption">Nevado Huantsán</span>
  </div></div></td>
  <td><div><div style="height: 207px;" class="image" align="center"><a href="/view_object.php?object_id=795512">
    <img alt="Nevado Huantsán" src="/images/medium/795512.jpg" height="190"></a><br>
    <span class="caption">Imminent sunrise</span>
  </div></div></td>
</tr>
</tbody></table></center></noformat>


After submitting this, the four <br> tags were gone (as, unfortunately, was most of the whitespace, which I had used to keep the HTML source code readable).

I tried a few things, and eventually found a work around: instead of <br> tags, I added <br clear=all> tags, and that did the trick:

Code: Select all
<noformat><center><table class="thumb"><tbody>
<tr>
  <th colspan="4"><b><i style="color: black;">Great views from the top of the west ridge of Uruashraju Norte</i></b></th>
</tr>
<tr>
  <td><div><div style="height: 207px;" class="image" align="center"><a href="/view_object.php?object_id=795502">
   <img alt="Uruashraju" src="/images/original/795502.jpg" height="190"></a><br clear=all>
   <span class="caption">Nevado Uruashraju beckons</span>
  </div></div></td>
  <td><div><div style="height: 207px;" class="image" align="center"><a href="/view_object.php?object_id=795534">
   <img alt="The ridge" src="/images/medium/795534.jpg" height="190"></a><br clear=all>
   <span class="caption">View down the ridge</span>
  </div></div></td>
  <td><div><div style="height: 207px;" class="image" align="center"><a href="/view_object.php?object_id=795508">
    <img alt="Huantsán" src="/images/medium/795508.jpg" height="190"></a><br clear=all>
    <span class="caption">Nevado Huantsán</span>
  </div></div></td>
  <td><div><div style="height: 207px;" class="image" align="center"><a href="/view_object.php?object_id=795512">
    <img alt="Nevado Huantsán" src="/images/medium/795512.jpg" height="190"></a><br clear=all>
    <span class="caption">Imminent sunrise</span>
  </div></div></td>
</tr>
</tbody></table></center></noformat>


For the record, the page where I had this problem is http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.p ... _id=842314 and it was in fact Josh who made me aware of it in the first place.
I've been editing in Chrome.

I can't recall exactly right now, but I think <br> tags are being parsed from the HTML for a reason. I'll look into it...

Same thing is being reported here:
viewtopic.php?f=22&t=64604

I'm not sure what the cause is, but it may have to do with changes that were made to the site this weekend. I'll investigate.

I've paid a little more attention to what's happening with <br> tags.
Now, I wouldn't like it very much, but I could see there might be a reason why <br> tags would be removed when switching from HTML to WYSIWYG mode. However, even if I work in HTML mode and submit an edited page without switching to WYSIWYG mode, some <br> tags are removed.

For the record, while I think the editor could improve its handling of <br> tags, if I speak only for myself, I can work around it. I just add a clear attribute to the <br> tag. Done that quite a few times already. However, I believe that the biggest problem lies with all the pages that were created before the new editor: when someone edits such a page, and, without the editor noticing it, <br> tags are removed in various places, including those where nothing should be changed, the new page may look awkward. Yet, with a small change, the editor will probably only check if the change itself looks good - while in the mean time somewhere else in the page something's gone wrong!

Hi,
I´m trying to create a new Image, filling in all the fields, and selecting a file (9 Mb) from my computer, but when I press the "Submit Changes" button the path of my file in the field "File" desappears and the picture is not uploaded. No error messages appear.

The link to the page I´m creating is: http://www.summitpost.org/new_edit_obje ... _id=865263

Browser: Internet Explorer 9.0.19
OS: Windows 7

Thank you for your support

I can't 100% recall the size limit for uploads, but I'm pretty sure it is 8MB. Try resizing the image and then uploading it and see if it fixes the issue.
