    I ran a test thread this morning to see if inserting images would run for multiple pics without previewing after one or two (to avoid losing the uploads and text). I loaded 10 pics without failure. That issue appears to be corrected, thankfully.

    The new problem for the past two days happens when I preview a new thread (including my test this morning): I need to refresh several times after hitting the preview button (or preview/refresh in multiples) in order for all the text and pics to show in the new thread and edit box. Sometimes the dreaded red "X" shows where pics should be, with other pics showing just fine, and some of the text may not appear. The missing items may happen in the thread preview or edit box, or both. I don't recall having this issue several days ago, so it's a new problem, possibly from the latest maintenance/uprades?

    I've been running IE8 for the past sevral months as Firefox was causing other page editing problems at that time. Other than that, I've not changed anything on my end for months...same ISP, connection device, computer, etc.

    I've been having some weird problems the last couple of day's as well, but I guess the're all related to an upgrade that's taking place.

    Yesterday's q-view I posted took a dump on me twice...loaded 1 pic, second pic stalled and I had to start over. Previewed after each pic after that to keep from losing the whole post.

    Still had to refresh after previewing as well.

    Sorry for the problems folks.. it is related to the last upgrade and the bugs are being worked out. Should be better over the next day or so.We get great upgrades but unfortunately, the upgrades don't always play well with various browsers and sometimes these things don't always show up in the test environment.

    Cool, guys do a great job staying on top of the bugs. I can't imagine how everything could work perfectly the first time around...way too much going on in one place at one time.

    Hey, don't forget to take a deep breath now and then...

    Hey y'all.

    Been trying to start a new thread.  I'm not able to import photos or even to be able to "Submit" or "Preview" a new thread.

    I can however import a pic in a reply as proved below. 


    sure wish I could post this smoke.  It was a dandy.
