"missing security token"

Has anyone run into this problem? I get this error message when I try to add pictures to a gallery. The admin said to post here and ask.

Thanks, PS

Hiya Phoenixson,
I was wondering if it had anything to do with the size/format of the images. Could I get you to send me a copy of one of them that won't load? I'd like to see if I can assist with this. My email is rcwarshipathotmail.com
Thanks,
Jon T

Testing

Hi John,
May have it figured out..............image is too large, the developers created an error message that is incomprehensible to mere mortals, but makes complete sense to them.
I tried to add it to my album using the "browse" feature, I got no error, it just didn't upload.
I tried uploading it with the "drag & drop" feature - ditto, no error, no upload.

I resized it to 800x600 & it loaded with both drag & drop and browse.

I'll have more info after this test.

The solution

Hi John,
4555555555555
The solution is to resize the photo's. I chose 800x600 because that size fits in most browsers where people have smaller (older) CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitors.
The program that I use is waaaaaaay awesome, it's called Irfanview. It's a free program that is very user friendly, it allows you to resize images easily (Image, Resize/Resample - in pixels, inches or mm) and allows you to save it in a gazillion formats (JPG, Tif, BMP, etc.

You can download it from:
IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

I'm not sure of your comfort level with loading pictures, please forgive me if you already know this.

To use the drag & drop feature, drag your image with the mouse to this location on the album page & drop it in the image:



Or you can use the browse feature as well.



Please let me know if this does not work for you, or if there are any other problems.

Thanks,
Jon

Jon! your a genius! It worked after resizing. I can't seem to get the drag and drop to work but browse does. Man I can't thank you enough. Now I need to figure out how to put your post on the other forum so those guys know it was YOU who found the solution!

You Da Man!

Thanks Buddy!
