Issue w/ Blog Page
« on: March 25, 2016, 05:15:01 AM »
I'm not sure if there's a better place to post issues with the site, or if it's better to just message the mods directly, but I'll start here.  I've been trying to post an update to my blog for the last two days.  Every time I hit 'post', depending on the browser (I've tried Firefox, Chrome and Edge), they either go to a blank screen or return the message "The donkeykongforum.com page isnít working", and the post doesn't get uploaded.  The issue seems to be related to a .png image file I was trying to attach, as I was able to get the message to post this morning without the attachment.  However, I was trying yesterday with and without the attachment, without success either way.

So, I finally got the message to post this morning, without the attachment.  I then modified the message to include the attachment, and now when clicking on the (2), for the second page of my blog thread, it either goes to a blank page or returns the message "The donkeykongforum.com page isnít working".  Hopefully I'm just doing something dumb on my side, but please help.

I'm seeing the same error message, but only for  Page 2  of your blog.

A 500 error usually means a host and/or server issue.

Yes, exactly.  Page 1 displays fine.  Page 2 returns the error.

I'm looking into this. Definitely weird.  <confused>

Ok, it is something about your .png files. I had to manually delete them from the database to get the 2nd page to open. Can you convert them to JPG's and try again?


EDIT: Just noticed your image was 6600 pixels wide. Might want to scale it down to around 1024 pixels or chop it up into smaller images.

Okay, thank you.  Sorry for the headache.  I will convert and scale down the image file.  Thanks!
