Is there a way to link to the entire album itself, instead of inserting single pics?

Do you want to insert all of the images in the album at one time? I am not sure I am understanding the question?

If you try to load a bigger than 5MB image you will get an immediate message that says "Really Big Image".jpg exceeds the file size limit of 5 M It would never show up in the preview box. What was the file type?

Didn't give me a message. it was a jpg file.

Once I load the image (and it appears) hit submit and get the busy blue bar. Up load results has two option, view album or upload more images. I go to the view this album page. You don't have any images in this album?
I tried emptying my album out and then starting fresh as I suspect you did, but I can't reproduce this. It worked just fine for me. (This is the computer equivalent of having your car make a noise until you take it to a friend's house to get them to listen to it and there is no noise.) Yesterday, there were some issues with the server related to an update that installed overnight. I didn't resolve them until about nine in the morning Pacific time, so it could be that interfered with the upload. The "View this Album" button you see after uploading an image is really just a link to your Albums page, so there's nothing to go wrong there; it had to be with the upload itself. There are no errors recorded for the Gallery at all, so it seems nothing went wrong that threw an error. I checked the database to see if there was anything in there that shouldn't be for you, and it's clean; just one album, one image, and all looks normal.

I don't think a 3.8 MB file would be the cause since there are checks both on your device and on the server that check the file size and allow considerably more than that, but you might try that image again and see if you get the same results. If you do, let us know.

I don't want to insert any images, I just want to link to the folder where the images are located.

For example, an Eliminator comes up for sale. Instead of inserting every pic into the thread, I put a link to the Album where all the pics are located.

Maybe we can add that, if I am assuming correctly that you want to add a link to an public album in your gallery. Or of course if the album is else where you can just use a link using the insert URL icon that looks like a little link of chain.

This is my experience as well.
I select photos, see the thumbnails, hit submit, the blue bar runs across the bottom of the screen, and then the "view album" or "upload more images" page opens. No success (or failure) message. When I go to the album, it tells me I have no pictures. I've made multiple attempts using a variety of pictures, all jpeg format, all under 2.5MB. (This is using a home PC running Windows and IE, FWIW.) Would like to know what I am doing wrong.

Brian, BossElim: What operating system (like windows 7 or 10 or what ever) and browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer) are you using?

Jay, CJ 750: Which version of WIndows and IE are you running?

Yes Please :-)

Also, can we add a link to the Gallery in our profile, or on our "Avatar" at the side of our post(s)? --------------------------------------------------->
