Im computer challenged for sure but still able to post pictures on all other forums that i read on, except here. Ive tried many times and just wasting lots of time. Im going to gallery, then add pictures, clicking on the choise pic boxes, applying my pictures in each box, adding a title at the top, selecting Racing for their place, and hit Submit. Nothing happens even after a long long time, ive gone from trying 10 at a time down to just 2 and getting the same nothing. What im im doing wrong?
Same thing with tring to add a avatar picture, i fill it all out place a pic in the box and hit submit, nothing
Thanks, Ryan

have you tried a different web browser? (google chrome used to hang up on me sometimes when i was trying to upload a avatar photo)

If you have windows 10 you could try using edge.

also here is Everett's How to post photos thread.

and here is a thread on adding a avatar.

Email me any of the photos if you want and I will check them out.
Best guess - They are so huge that your connection times out.

Avatar photo:
Uploading an avatar should be basically instant if you have it sized down to the size used (100x100 pixels or smaller)
This would be a very small file size photo.
If I had to guess you are trying to upload a huge full size photo here too as that has been an issue for several people in the past.

Strange, there should be no issue using Chrome, I've been using it for many years and have added numerous avatars for people with Chrome.

They were pretty large, I emailed them back to you smaller to see if they will work for you now.

I added one of the pics as your Avatar too.

Hmmm, ok.
Not sure what's wrong.

I'm curious - What browser are you using?
I'm using Google Chrome and when you are uploading something, there is a percentage done in the lower left so you can see if the upload is taking forever.

The default picture file format for iPhones changed with a recent software update. It's not JPEG anymore, it's HEIC. Maybe those aren't compatible with the Samba photo upload/display process?

Ok, didn't realize this was on a phone.
Android phone would be the Google Chrome browser but I don't believe there is any indicator like I stated above.

Let us know if your 5 year old gets it working for you. Smile
