    Can't upload attachments

    I've NEVER been able to upload an attachment on JI.

    In the past, I figured it was too big or whatever and gave up.

    So finally, I just spent some time creating some tiny gifs and jpg files.

    I even created a tiny.gif that is 4KB and 52px x 10 px. Even this fails. It opens fine in numerous other programs, so the file is not corrupt or anything like that.

    It's always the same message:

    Manage Attachments
    Upload Errors Tiny.gif:
    Upload of file failed.

    I was a software engineer for 25 years so I would like to think I'm not making some obvious error. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Its a mystery to me also CharlieD, what I do and I believe most others do is upload my pics and what nots to a site like Photobucket and then Photobucket automatically converts them so I can copy and paste them on message boards.

    That's all I got on this.

    Thaks gunnails. So the bottom line seems to be:

    Don't use the "Upload file from my computer" option.

    Do use the "Upload from URL" option. And then either find an existing graphic on the web, or upload your image to a site and then point to it via the URL.

    Thanks! And look, it works:
