Oh, I'm such a perfectionist, I HAVE to preview. You've seen my posts. They're masterpieces of digital feng shui: everything positioned and captioned just so. I feel so... handicapped ...now. :(

Noted today. When I loaded my 4 photos (all smaller than 1 mg) as jpg's then did Preview, then submitted, suddenly all but one of my photos were unavailable? Where am I going wrong?

Thanks.
It's not you, I'm getting it too. Can preview OK, then on posting, all but the last one disappears.
Weird thing is, if I do not preview, they all post :o

Same today. Pics lost or jumbled when switching in-and-out of preview. Posted just fine when preview not used.

Same as the above posts John and since the sites software upgrade. I always "Preview" so had not been aware that if you don't preview everything picture-wise posts. It's like only the very last picture chosen gets posted.
I "heve" to preview due to weird misspellings. Like the word "heve".

Thanks in advance.

One thing is there is a max file size limit, apparently is 2 MB (2 Megabytes) according to page #1 of this topic. but I think most digital cameras and cellphone photos are bigger than that even. My iPhone's can be over 3 MB. So it may be you need to reduce the files' byte count. iPhone can do this when sending a photo in an email, otherwise there are photo resizing tools. E.g. Windows 10 Paint app can do it. Usually by reducing the X x Y pixels size you also reduce the file size.

The site has been FU since the last update. Can post multiple pictures, but you can not Preview or go back and modify after initial post. Why John has been DEAF to the complaints is interesting

I asked John what we could do to remedy this, and he asked me to propose a viable alternative. I'm completely ignorant about web hosting software, so I've got no solutions to offer. Even though it was not secure, I do miss the functionality of our old hosting software. :cry:

John can't fix it, only the people who wrote the code. It's got a bug in it, that wasn't there before last update, it happens sometimes, presumably next update will fix it.

Maybe John has told them but since phpBB3 is free it's not like you can insist, i.e. if you'd paid money for it.

Well this is interesting - there is a phpBB users forum, I found this topic about "attachments disappearing", they're all complaning about it, the first post was January 2018, last post August, still apparently not resolved :(
