Know this has been raised before, but can’t seem to find it, hence new thread, but if attaching more than two photos into a post, it freezes, and the only way out is to click DONE and start from scratch 😡



​​​​​​​As my cooking posts often require more than two pics, could this little blip maybe be looked into please? No rush 👍

hi bev
under what conditions does it freeze? are you using phone or ipad? And at what point does it freeze, does it make a difference if you post one press return to put a space in and post the next (I assume you can only post one photo at a time or at least I can't select more than one?) asking 'cos I don't tend to use the phone unless I'm out

iPad our Wozeeta, and yes pressing return to make a space to add each photo individually at correct place in the post. I’d done two photos here and that blue cursor indicates where I was about to add the third, forgetting it always crashes after two, so started again.
Hey @Bev @woz
Yep, this is a bug. Doesn't matter which device you use, if there's more than one pic added, it freezes the page.
Same thing happens to me and @Nataly
The way we get round it is by posting the post with two pics, then editing and adding a third if needed. But that is a massive pain in the you-know-what.
But! The good news is that there's an update on Wednesday morning to fix it. 👍
This is now... fixed! 😁



@Bev nice one for pointing this out 👍 you can now post photos to your heart's content! (3 randomly chosen photos above, just to prove it 😉)

Can’t add a photo 🤷‍♀️😢

Was trying on another topic, so thought I’d have a go here as a test, but nothing 🤷‍♀️😖😩🤨

 

 

How big was the photo @Bev ?

There’s a size limit. I think it’s 5MB

Last night, and again today, keep repeatedly getting this message when adding a photo. If I close the app, but stay logged in, but redo the moon thingy click, then try again, it works. Bizarre. 

🤷‍♀️🤔🤷‍♀️

 

That’s a weird one @Bev Never seen it before.

Am putting on my Columbo-style mac to ask some people some questions  :thinking:

you’ll  do yourself a neck injury if you continue with that moon thingy click...

Hey @Bev We’ve been thoroughly interrogating all parties (aka, we did a Google search) and it looks like an iPhone/iPad thing.

And it looks like it’s photos which go into Dropbox. Maybe. Does this help? Link here.

Never ever use Dropbox or any kinda cloud, but it was airdropped from iphone to iPad, but if it’s recognised as a specific iphone iPad problem, no worries at all, as using both. Thanks Marc 👍👏👏👏

I’d go for a restart @Bev… 😎

Ah yes, the old ‘switch it off and on again’ ploy :laughing:

Hope that sorts it @Bev 

Good suggestion @25 quid :thumbsup:
