Keep getting 'Database Error' . . .
« on: April 05, 2023, 11:52:29 PM »
As it says above, I keep getting the 'Database Error,' when trying to make big Posts, with pictures, etc.
I'll write the Post, add the image links, and submit it. I then get about 2-3 minutes of the spinny circle, then
 
'Database Error - Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.
[/size] It only seems to happen with long Posts with several images.


EDIT:- Point in fact, this Post went up no problem.


cheers,
Robin.

And how many pictures? I believe there's a limit on the number of pic's that can occupy one post (due to data size limits).

@GTX, twenty eight lines of text, and ten picture links.
@OW, I'm only putting picture links in the Post text, not attaching them direct . . .

Believe it or not, I've just tried again, and the Post has posted !!    ???    >:D
However, this is not the first time I've had this happen, so if I send you a copy of the Post by Pm, maybe you can see what I'm doing wrong, or what the fault is . . .


cheers,
Robin.
