I am trying to post pictures that are in my gallery already, It keeps saying error with a back button when I click on the picture to insert it in the post. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Ryan.

Can you tell me...

What Operating-System & Browser are you using ?

Home & Work.

Thanks.

Si.

Microsoft Windows 10 is likely the problem here...

...or possibly Apples latest O.S. as well.

Hi Ryan.


There is another 'Fix' for Internet-Explorer, we could check out later also, if the issue persists.

Generally speaking the ONLY browser we actually can offer any support for, or recommend is in fact FIREFOX.

Microsoft, Apple & Google browsers can prove sometimes troublesome.

But most people are able to use them if they are set up right.

The INDEPENDENT and Free excellent FIREFOX browser tends to behave & function properly !


Go figure, Mr Gates & Jobs ;)

Hi Ryan :wave:



IF ! you are using 'Windows-10' ...

... there is a Thread that has been BUMPed up the Board a number of times recently ...

... that describes how to Post photos from the 'Freerails Members Gallery' using that Operating-System.



It is here :-

Bettering Bills Latest Bodge !



- - - - - - -



The original Post is here as well :-



An update by Microsoft to Windows-10 around 1st January 2017 has been an issue.

A number of Freerails Members using Windows-10 have reported a problem.

They have not been able to Post photos using The Gallery in the way that was previously possible.



A solution to this difficulty has been found.

This solution has been tested in 'Firefox'.

It is likely that it will also work with other browsers as well.

If you have experienced a problem using Windows-10 and the Freerails Members Gallery



Try this ...



- - - - - - -



Go to your 'Freerails Members Gallery'

In your Gallery window click on the photo you want to Post

The photo will then be enlarged on your screen

Now ... Right-Click ... a drop down menu will appear

From this drop down menu ... click on 'COPY IMAGE'


Now ... go to the Freerails Reply Window open in another tab

Place your cursor where you want your photo to appear

Then you need to Right-Click again ... another drop down menu will appear

From this drop down menu ... click on 'PASTE IMAGE'


The photo you want to Post from your Gallery should now be in the Reply Window.

Simply repeat the above sequence to add more photos to your Post.


- - - - - - -


Ryan, Chas, It would be great to see both of your latest photos ! :)

If you are using 'Windows-10' give this a go ...

... it has worked just fine for other 'Windows-10' users.



Other previous Windows Operating-Systems can be used as per previous instructions.

But THIS METHOD should also work with ALL browsers & ALL Operating-Systems as well.



Let us know how this works out for you.

Feedback is always good & enables the best advice to be given.



:brill:



Cheers.

Hi Guys :wave:



Also bear in mind the following :-

Board 'Themes' Returned To How They Should Be



- - - - - - -



The 'Board-Themes' available in My Account 'Preferences' ie. 'Sea', 'Ultra', 'Simple' & 'AIblue' ...

... have all been returned back, to how they should be.



This mainly means, that now the 'Gallery' button in the top ^ Menu-Tab ...

... appears as it should do, in all 4 'Board-Themes'.



Similarly, the 'G' button at the top of the 'Main Reply Window' ...

... now appears in all 4 'Board-Themes' as it should do also.



Hope that helps.



:brill:



Albert ;)

Lucky Chaps. I have a G but I can't get to the Gallery! Seems others can, but I'm not allowed. Two folks with a whole lot more Internet savvy than myself have tried, But I'm told that my browser (FireFox) won't let me. I think that it's punishment for past transgressions. Plenty of material (bad stuff) there. Was going to fill in pix that f**kobucket deleted. Oh well. Name deleted to protect the guilty.

Hi Alwin :wave:



Are you using 'Windows-10' ?

&

Have you tried the method of using the Gallery detailed a couple ^^ of Posts back ?



I have both a Mac & P.C. here.

Both running Firefox.

The Gallery functions work fine on both computers.



So it seems that the Gallery software, which is supplied by 'Data 1 Systems', is OK.

These various issues may be to do with something in the users browser setup settings ?

The method outlined for 'Windows-10' should work on other Operating Systems as well.



Herbs computer problem remains one of the great mysterious of modern microchips !

I haven't tried that Si. Problably that works. It is not that the gallery doesn't work, the G button don't work. I found it strange, 2 months back it worked fine.

Guess I need to use the work around method too.

Hi Alwin, it does work the first is always to hardest, thanks to Si I couldn't post any pics from my gallery  as well, this works perfect, but you do need to set up a second tab to make it easier, thanks to a win10 upgrade .
