The plot thickens. I tried loading pictures after opening the site in Chrome. That works, sometimes. About 50% of the time, randomly as far as I can tell, the green "success" marker never appears, and the pics don't show up in the album. I don't think its the source material. The same picture will sometimes load, sometimes not. No idea what's going on otherwise.

P.S. Another thing I've noticed since the original post: After a pic fails to load, if I click the "View Album" button, it takes me to the album as expected. But if I click the "Load more pictures" button, I get an error message saying "There are no albums for this user." Of course the albums are there, if I access them normally. I don't know if that's a clue or not, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

I was working on the site yesterday, so the first thing I'd try is clearing your browser cache to make sure you're using the latest javascript. Your browser may be caching an older version.

I just pushed a new version of the javascript file, so you won't have to worry about clearing your cache, just reload the page if you're in it when I changed it (now).

Let us know if you encounter the same problem after this.

I think I found the problem. If you were uploading two images at a time, and together they exceeded 8 MB in size, even though individually they are less than 5 MB each and wouldn't have triggered an error, they exceeded another setting on the server that only allows a total of 8 MB for all the content posted when you submitted the form. This is the first time I've ever seen anything in the error logs, but I see a number of errors corresponding to the times you were uploading images, so I'm pretty sure that's the problem you were encountering.

For the time being, I've set the number of images you can upload simultaneously to one (it was two), which will avoid this particular problem by limiting the total upload to 5 MB for the image, plus the extra data for the title and description. It is a little less convenient to only be able to upload one image at a time, but it's better than the no-visible-error issue you were encountering. This should get things working again while we think about how we want to proceed.

Does that mean it's working for you now?

Yes! The only glitch is that, even when the pictures upload, pressing the "Load More Images" button results in the " There are no albums for this user." error message. Otherwise it seems to be 100%.

it's working now for me. This is the same image I tried loading last week that didn't work.

Okay, I will take a look at that and see if I can figure out what the issue is.
