Upload limit?

I just picked up premium membership, and I thought that meant I could create my own photo albums and upload photos to them. But when uploading even one photo, I get "Warning: You have reached your upload limit". What's going on?

I get that too when I try to create a new album & I have a free membership. maybe it's just a bug with "albums"? I just upload pics into threads & they show up in my singular album

Yeah, AFAIK uploading to posts works fine. I wanted to create a stand-alone album; I thought that's what premium membership buys.

Oh, and the odd thing - it acts as if it's uploading the first photo, presenting a "progress" bar, and takes 10-15 seconds. It's only at the end of that process that I get the message.

Confirmed - attaching to posts works fine. But creating and populating new albums is a fail.

Do any admins/mods read these threads? @IBRyan ?

Yes, I do. I am currently looking into what the issue can be. Can you please explain one more time what exactly is happening?

I just created a new album, and uploaded. No issues.



I've been doing uploads manually to the album for a while. I tried using the picture upload icon, and got a message "Please Enter URL", rather than taking me to the album.

PleaseEnterURL.jpg

Hmmm...

The old upload method with attachments still works, using the paper clip

I do try to target somewhere between around 50 kb and 200 kb for my image sizes. I could imagine the system having headaches with super HUGE images.

This:

Background is of course very dim, but you can JUUST see that I tried creating a new album called "Test", then uploading a file from my local machine, aprx. 30K. The progress bar indicates it's uploading, then at the end, the above pops up.

"Device" is any of three computers I've tried. Two are Windows 10 and one is Windows 7. They're all running Firefox, different versions from ESR 52.9 to 60-something.

Site version is.... errr.... same as everybody else is using, I guess. I don't see anything on the home page that indicates a version. I'm using the "BikeforumsNG" style. I tried the Default Style, same result.

^^^^ They're all post photos. A lot of them are duplicates. I often post pics from earlier posts to new posts, when they're relevant. When I do, I always post an "img" link to the original photo, but evidently the forum software sees fit to store a new copy in my "Post pictures" album as a duplicate.

If there were a "where used" feature, that told you what post(s) a particular pic is associated with, it would help.

Edit - there are some that have more duplicates than can be accounted for by reference posting / re-posting. I just found one with four copies, all uploaded within 2-3 minutes of each other. I most definitely did not post that many messages with the same photo that many times that quickly.

I wonder if at some point, the forum software would re-upload an inline pic every time you preview a post, or edit an existing one. I preview at least 99% of my posts, esp. those with inline images, and sometimes multiple times before hitting the final post button. If the software is clogging up my "Post pictures" album with dupes any time I do that, it would definitely explain the number. Again - if I knew that was it, and knew which pics were actually associated with real posts and which were "orphans", I could probably clean up a fair amount. Of course, the software shouldn't require such exercises, but I digress......

Edit 2 -- I'm pretty sure the forum was saving duplicates of pics in some cases, when I would either preview or edit a post with pics. I slogged through them and found several with up to four copies of the same pic, but only one associated with a post. I figured it out based on matching the uuid file name of the pic in the album with the pic in the post. It was a mind-numbing slog, but I deleted well over 50 such pics, that had been "stranded" by that process but still counting as pics in my gallery. So I'm down to about 150, but I'm still getting the "Upload Limit" message.
