Still happening, and it is just when I click on the above link.

Wonder if it's related to the Chinese attack on my emails yesterday? ???

My service provider confirmed that they'd gotten into my system (past the protection) disguised as a legitimate email from a company we do business with.

PS: What's happened with the emoji's ... or is it just me? ???

There are less of them & some of the code/descriptors have changed.

Yeah! I just noticed that the emojies have disappeared.

I've found another 'Error' message ----  when I clicked on Profile and then 'Show Posts'

This comes up ---

"Please try again later. This member's posts are not currently available due to high load on the server."

Also experienced that same message while logged in as a moderator.

Both the errors I was getting seem to have been fixed now, at least they're working at the moment.

I tweaked some server settings, and it seems smoother.

For the last few days, the home page header has disappeared, just shows a white square with a no entry symbol in it. I tried the toggle arrow in the top right corner to see if that was what caused it and it wasn't.
All the GB thumbnails are showing though.
And when I first came into this thread to report this issue, I got kick out from being signed in ---

I cancelled my Smugmug account, reducing expenditures, and I'll be putting the image up into a root folder
for the site, which is where it should have been all along.
I've been very busy with my temporary US Census job, it'll be over shortly.

Cheers, Jon

Hello O Worthy elders of the internet.

I had a few issues today trying to put up images for the Shilka Update build.
Initially I had 7 images in the post and the Forum server consistently errored out with a Database Error. I have an image of the Server Error reply but it is pretty non-specific and useless as to actually reason of failure.

So I was wondering is there a limit to the numbers of images that can included in a single post ?
There was a quote in there as well, which I also removed as part of the process to find out what was the problem, in case the server was parsing the Reply Text.

No biggie, eventually got around it by breaking the post up into 4 image chunks.

Cheers Brian T

I'm not a WEotI but I've found there's a limit on images - not sure if it's a number or total data size thing, though.

There are limits upon:

Max attachment size per post
Max size per attachment
Max number of attachments per post

But none that I am aware of if you are embedding using an external hosting service.

There are also Maximum allowed post size limits which may be triggering something here despite it being character total limited.
