  1. Tried this in Opera and IE 8 so far. On Opera it gives an error screen saying that the server/site is not found (see attached image). IE just says "Done" in the status bar and displays a white screen.

    Odd error considering other people have uploaded recently. I also tried it myself just now and it worked. Unfortunately that's been the story with photopost for years, random inexplicable and unreproducible errors, even when running the latest version.

    Try again perhaps? :rolleyes:

    I have Julio, thanks.

    I'll try it from home incase its Kaspersky or something preventing it silently from working :)

    Can't say if this is related but once whenever I clicked on a Newegg link in these forums, it would give me an error message and take me to a blank page or something. After I uninstalled Kaspersky that stopped.

    Disabled Kaspersky and tried uploading. Still didn't work from my work machine. So not sure what the culprit is. I'll upload from home when I get the time :)

    Truth be told, Photopost (the software we use to run the gallery) is an odd animal, it works well for the most part but try deviating a bit from its default usage and you will hit a wall...

    I just found a manual solution to get rid of all queued/problematic uploads for all users, can you try uploading now to see what happens?

    Thank you.

    The queue was cleared but still get the same problem.

    After uploading, I get directed to a white page with the same URL http://www.techspot.com/gallery/uploadphoto.php

    When I try to "Skip upload and process the files already in your upload directory" I get redirected to a white page with the URL http://www.techspot.com/gallery/bul...words=&updir=&processall=no&dthumbs=&mature=0

    When I click on my queued image, I get sent to another white page with the URL http://www.techspot.com/gallery/bulkupload.php?ppaction=addphotos&do=preview&defcat=500

    Not sure if that information helps.

    I'm so glad, and believe it or not I didn't do anything... Photopost likes to act up as I had mentioned
