    Good luck.

    I've an idea then where things may be going wrong. When you're editing a post it's temporarily saved, then when finally posted it transfers everything over. It sounds like it's this part which is faulty.

    I agree on everyones points with uploads. I keep procrastinating about fixing it as I know it's such a troublesome feature to code up and have working reliably x-browser/x-app, also what happens with unused uploads (need deleting after a while), file formats that are acceptable, re-sizing hi-res images if needed to reduce file size, reading exif data and rotating upside down pictures, having a working progress bar for uploads so people don't give up, what happens if files get corrupted. Then shifting files around... well not too bad but adding drag and drop is complex, desktops need mouse down, mouse move and mouse up events, mobile users need touch start, touch move and touch end events and thumbnails need to snap and shuffle around similar to moving phone app icons. It's complex!

    I'm tempted to remove the upload window mind, agree there is no need to pull images from google photos / dropbox etc. Anyone use that feature at all? If using the mobile app it's often a built in feature now to pick photos from other services on your phone directly.

    The other thing I'd quite like to do is change the media viewer. On desktops it's ok (except arrow keys to toggle through), but on mobile it often shows the image smaller and doesn't allow for zooming in which is sometimes annoying.

    All on the to-do list. Perhaps something for my next holiday.

    Hi Stephen, the extra photo's appeared when I first downloaded my own photo's, they all appeared on the right of the screen, I tried to delete them, but everytime I deleted one that was not mine, one of my own disappeared?, so I clicked submit, then Doug (rn in Munich) tried to delete the foreigners, but again deleted my own photo's, I eventually deleted the whole boats in harbour file, and started again, success the second time.


    Cheers, Pete

    Thanks for the explanation Doug. I can't remember seeing them before, but it now makes sense.
    As for the rugged good looks, just well worn but not quite worn out.
    Keeing safe but can't do much as arthritis is playing up and fingers not bending, the doctor is trying me on a new drug, as my old meds gave me stomach bleeding.
    Hope you and yours are okay and staying safe.
    Cheers Colin.

    Thanks for the fixes Doug.
    I don't think the facility for uploading and ordering 'photos is fully formed and could possibly be improved. I did suggest this to Stephen previously but I fully understand that these things take a lot of work to design and implement properly.
    Also there is the ability to browse for pictures in Google Photos, DropBox, Twitter, InstaGram, Tumblr and Facebook but who actually uses that feature when the pix they really want are usually on their PC or camera/phone memory card ? Quite a redundant feature in my opinion.
    Agreed about using cursor keys to click through pictures !
    Gripe over.
    Rob.

    Just fixed your Blog link Rob!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š
    Agree with the 'dragon drop' feature and the reorder.
    I'm sure we used to be able to do the latter before the site upgrade.
    I'd also like to be able to use the arrow keys to hop through posted pics, like most other sites.
    When there are many (record stands at 104 in one post I think!) it gets tiring on the wrist having to use the mouse to move on to the next pic.πŸ€”
    Cheers, Doug 😎
    PS I see you edited your post while I was typing (must learn to type faster!)
    'browse my computer' function is already there. That's what clicking Select Files does.
    On my W10 PC it opens Windows Explorer.

    Hi All.
    Well I just posted my new build blog and it all uploaded OK and all of the 'photos appear in the order that I uploaded them so for me at least it seems to be working fine.
    It would be nice though to have a 'browse my computer' feature when selecting 'photos to upload or the ability to re-order them before posting....just a suggestion 😁

    Hi Colin,
    Not withstanding your rugged, lived-in good looksπŸ˜‰
    I take it you mean the small circular pics to the left of the posts.
    This is your Avatar because you have taken some action; e.g. the four posts of mine that you Liked. Ta for thatπŸ‘
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Stephen,
    I've just noticed that about 30% of the posts shown in the notification part of the site (on my mobile) have my avatar.
    Can't think of why anyone needs to use my ugly face as their avatar.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Stephen,
    From my experiences:-
    1 Rogue photos usually appear in the final submitted post, not in the post Edit window.
    Recent exception: Rooky's HMS Amethyst post, a new phenomenon.
    It seems to me to occur when two or more members all submit posts within a very small time frame. I can liken it to 'cross modulation interference' within multiple radio systems!πŸ€”
    Something I know well from naval ship comms systems.
    This first cropped up several months ago when pics in one of JB's posts appeared in several posts in the same thread - but not in his own post! I spent some time putting the pics back where they belonged. Problem went away for several months but has recently cropped up again.
    2. The phenomenon is not limited to Harbour posts.
    3. It's not always the same photos.
    Not like the case of the mysterious 'Fish Avatar' some time ago!

    I've also noted the text deletion, as Rob describes, after selecting photos (or any other file type). Doesn't always happen but I have learned to copy the text just in case!
    Hope this helps track it down.
    Cheers, Doug 😎
