Just simply trying to post a 1 mb WIP image in a new thread in the “Work in Progress” forum. No matter the size and/or filetype, I cannot post, and receive the following message: “The Unreal Engine Forums database has encountered a problem.”
I’m sorry to hear you are having trouble posting an image to the site. Unfortunately, I have not been able to reproduce this error on my end. Can you walk me through what steps you are taking to upload/post the image? What filetype are you using?
I discussed this with our community team and have found that this is expected behavior. Our forums do not have the ability to host images. To show an image, you will need to use the [IMG] tags for an image hosted on another site to show images on the forums.
EDIT: I may have spoken too soon. After posting this we ran further tests and found that the [Attach] functionality for images should be working. We are going to continue looking into this to see what may be occurring.
I have submitted a bug report for this to be addressed. It looks like this may be a size limitation on the forums. All images I’ve tried over 1mb have been denied, but other images that are smaller worked with no error.
I have exactly the same problem.
I have tried to upload pics in
Different file sizes.
Different computers at a different location.
used different naming conventions.
I am aswell unable to add screen shots to explain my problems. For me im using internet explorer web browser. and then when I go and click the post a question button, fill in my question then click the add attachment paperclip it states not to use images over 5mb. my img is under 1 mb its a jpg. so I use the browse function for my img. click on the img then at the btm of the box it says upload. when I click upload it sits at 0 percent never uploads. huge issue as some stuff cant be purely explained with words. or if it is, it goes over peoples heads. my issue is effecting my work and slowing me down exponentially. I’m in need of some pro help. but in order to get it I need a way to express the issue on your forums.
I can drag image to the post and I see upload progress, then the image and upload both disappear. since I’m new posting here, I’m not sure if that is the expected behavior.
Shouldn’t uploading something automatically create a link or markdown or something in my post?
I don’t see any of them, and after I press reply, the attachment is not there either.
