    I am having issues trying to post a picture. If I copy it and paste it in the reply pane (my normal way of doing it), it seems to paste, flashed on screen for a fraction of a second, and then goes away. If I try to upload it, I get this:

    I disabled all my privacy stuff and my ad blocker, and the problem persists. Not sure where to look, I have never had an issue posting pictures.

    Any. I just tried it with a totally different one in this reply. Both pasting it and uploading it.

    ^That was me logged in as you. No issue posting the picture from your account so check browser/device conflicts.

    [​IMG]Tried it on Firefox, and on Chrome in incognito mode (but logged in, of course) so there are no extensions loaded. Still getting the error. With the piHole disabled. So I am stumped.

    Although that last reply does show something. I see an icon with {IMG} following it (with [] not {}, I put those so they would not get interpreted.

    I tested an upload from my phone, both on WiFi, but also with WiFi disconnected, so going through my carrier, not my home network. Got an error uploading a picture both ways. I will try to log in as my wife and see it that does anything different.

    Nope, this fails too, logged in as her, so that's not it.

    When dropping in a pic from my PC doesn't work for me (reason unknown--pics from online typically work for me; from my PC, often no), I'll upload to tinypic.com and use the link from there.

    He's since posted a pic in another thread and no one else seems to be having issues with pics.

    That was not an uploaded or pasted picture, but a link to a rehosted location. That has worked all along. It is when I try to have TCF host it that it fails for me.

    Was the original bigger than the allowed 3MB?

    The one that started this was 813KB. Since then I have tried bigger and smaller ones, all with the same problem. It is just weird that I can reproduce it in all environments, including the cell connection!

    You've got something else going on then. I was able to attach from your account and Joe attached a couple more up thread this morning.

    Oh, I am sure it is something weird on my end, I just can't figure out what it is.

    I am also getting it on another Xenforo forum, so it is not TCF specific. That is both good and bad! :)

    Best to get that checked out by a medical expert!

    And just like that, the problem went away without anything changed. So I am left with no clue as to what caused it, but happy it is fixed!
