    The Gallery tab is taking me to google home page again.  anyone else having this issue?

    NM its working now ..

  • OMG..Can't see or get anywhere. Is this a conscious effort by daz to get people mad and to leave?

  • Has anyone figured out why the forums log people out a short time after logging in? Just happened to me a few minutes ago, and because I was stealth-logged out, I couldn't post the reply I'd just written. The only notice I got was when I hit the "Post Comment" button, I got a small grey "Page Not Found" box on top of the grey page footer — not really obvious to see, isn't it? I had to back out on another browser tab to a store page and re-enter the forums, which prompted a "Signing In" message, before I could finally post my reply. There must be a better way to do this...

    Is this thread still being monitored, incidentally, or is the forum software now assumed to be "working as designed"?

    If you buy something in the store, that definitely logs you out, and you won't be able to send the post you're writing.

    I know that — this was maybe 10-15 minutes after logging in to the DAZ homepage, then going into the forums and seeing the "Signing In" message. I browsed to a post I wanted to reply to, and <clunk>. I wouldn't mind so much that it happens, if there were only some visible sign that the stealth logoff has struck again. It's the sudden meaningless error message that I don't always notice that's really annoying.

    Still can't upload images to the forums using iOS... either 12.4 or 13... or iPadOS 13.

    Figured I'd mention it... like in case anyone was wondering if it was working...

    Does it just softly and silently not work, or do you get an actual "Upload Failed" message and the little red "X" icon below the text box? And what image file format and filename extension are you trying to upload? The forums ought to take any of the standard formats, but there are a few gotchas.

    It just hangs forever in "Uploading..."

    Well, not forever... I only went two hundred years into the future to check, but it was still "uploading..." in that timeline... also Pandas for some reason will be everyone's personal chauffeurs... no self driving cars. The future is strange... well, that one was... 

    In this timeline, the longest I left it was about a half hour... I got a phone call and forgot about it... the iPad went to sleep, but when I checked back, it didn't look like the page froze or anything. I thought maybe it "secretly uploaded"... sometimes (rarely) when I hit "Post Comment" the screen won't change from the posting mode... but if I open a new tab, I'll find the post went through... I checked that but it didn't post...  there didn't seem to be any point in waiting longer.

    Mostly I give it about five minutes if I'm checking, because occasionally a regular size image can take a minute or two to load...

  • Funnily enough I was just coming to post the same thing - I can't upload pictures to the forum. Never had this problem before.

    I've now tried 2 computers (Win7 and Win10), 2 browsers on each (Firefox and IE, and 2 versions of Firefox 70 and 71) Tried reducing the size of the picture to slightly over half a mg, I've tried uploading *.png and *.jpg. It just sits at 'Uploading...', I have tried leaving it an hour or more. If I cancel it it comes back with 'An Unknown Error Occurred'. Unfortunately I'm on holiday this week so I can't try uploading on the work network. I have been trying now for the last 3 days.

    Newsflash! - figured it out! The picture I was trying to upload has a & in the filename, changed that and it uploaded.

    Anybody notice that the view counters have not changed in a couple of days? No big deal, but it might be an indication of some underlying problem.

    Yes, now that you mention it. It's kind of an easy thing to miss noticing.

    Wonder if it will get noticed by anyone in a position to fix it.

  • It's one among many random glitches — some people have had their view counters stuck permanently at zero. The forums mostly work, I think that's about the best we can hope for.

    Yes. I've seen that for a long time also. But I think you're talking about the User Posts counter.

    But not to confuse the issue, this problem has to do with the thread view counters rather than the user posts counters, and it seems to be a new bug.

    EDIT: I just noticed that the problem seems to have been fixed.
