myLot Error with adding an Image? Is it just me?

United States
February 12, 2017 6:24pm CST
I just wrote a discussion post titled - Count down 4 hours, 9 minutes! First Attempt for Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup. & I tried several times to add an image / resized the image / restarted my laptop and I still come across a "Server Error" when I try to upload the image to the discussion post. I never had a problem before? Is anyone else having any problems with adding a photo? Does anyone know the myLot bugs username? @myLotBugs Thank you in advance. (Below is the error I am receiving) Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

@infatuatedbby It seems you are not the only one encountering this problem.I saw some others also finding it impossible to upload pictures.I have not experienced this as I have not tried to post a picture today.

What about if you did a trick I did before when I had an almost similar problem. I first posted my pic to my FB account (which I set as can only be seen by me), then downloaded the photo to my Mac or PC. I then uploaded to photo from my Mac or PC to Mylot. Why don't you make a try if it works?

@JolietJake got a way around this problem which I came to know from @hereandthere who learned it from him. She just sent the photo to either freepicresize or to freeimageconverter then upload the resized photo after to Mylot. Tried this with my last discussion and got successful though the image quality of the photo is quite diminished. You can give it a try.

I spent a week trying to add pictures and couldn't get any to work. Tonight I managed to get 3 of them up. Now people can see a couple of my waterlilies blooming and the newest cookies.

I have been facing this problem since yesterday. I tried various browsers and methods but none worked, before your discussion I thought it was happening with me only. I am relieved to know that it is common error.

Stale news (lol) I was the first one to notice it and solve it too by uploading smaller sized images. It worked. Today it may have come to normal. I have not posted the regular size but shall do so now just to test if all is well.

Haven't submitted a new discussion but I had a problem adding image to comment. Last year I cannot add my original photos on new discussion/comment because of higher mb but recently it's opposite -- I cannot add smaller/screenshot
