    Default Can't post image

    I am trying to post a thread in the Toilet Forum, but I can't upload my (1.05MB jpg) image. When I do I get this error

    500 [IOErrorEvent type="ioError" bubbles=false cancelable=false eventPhase=2 text="Error #2038"]

    Can anyone help?


    UPDATE: The image was too big. I pared it down with my HP image editor and no problems. Thanks all!

    There are size limits on what can be uploaded. I am not sure what the amount is on this site offhand, but another similar site that I am on, this limit is 250kB. You have a couple options:

    1. resize the picture using a program such as Paint, Photoshop, etc. and then upload

    2. upload the pic to another site (like photobucket) and link the pic here. To insert the picture, you do this (remove the spaces):

    [img] www.stuffgoeshere.com [/img]

    and 100 K max

    You may need to resize and "save for the web" as a jpg

    Go to www.photobucket.com and create an account, then direct link as an image on your post.

    Photobucket no matter what size the image will auto-resize the image.
    Read what the end of this sentence means.
