I still can't figure out how to create an album. I can't find a button in the gallery to do that.

A new dialogue box will pop up.

I've done all of this, but I still get the message "upload error upload not possible. Could anyone tell me how to upload my media in my createt album without that mesage?

Hi Schmitz! Firstly, welcome to the forum :) When uploading to media albums you must tag your render with at least one tag and you do that by clicking the 'expand' button and filling in the tag space. There's also a space for a caption in the expanded space. Hope that helps.

Welcome Schmitz...

@Lorraine, I'm wondering if you have to post a certain number of times before uploading an image? Can you remember?? Sorry totally brain dead but that may be what is causing the problem...

Gosh, brain's not throwing up that bit of info either. I just remembered how I couldn't upload a render till I gave it a tag. Took several goes before I successfully uploaded my first.

I might pm Alisa...she should know. I think that might be the issue here but can't remember for certain.

Does not work allready. It breaks bevor asking vor a Tag with "common error occures bla bla". I think the reason ist that flashplayer stuff, wich is used here (and is realy sh..). No one needs flashplayer and it costs much nervs of mine. So I will cancel all my uploads on this side and use it only for writing and reading. :sorry:

There are also size limits (that's what normally causes my errors), the files need to be under 1mb (and I think its best to reduce it yourself to be under 1600x1600 pixels)

I decreased the file to 249 kB and it's under 1600 x 1600. I'm using firefox. Sharing that stuff on the main side of hivewire is no problem. Only when I use my own gallery that error comes up. Posibel the reason is using firefox, but I would never use that edge stuff from microsoft. Bill Gates knows enough about me. Windows 10 is a horror. 4 Renders broken because of automatical updates from billy-boys toy. When I render now, I close everey connection to the web.

We use Firefox here with no issues. Let me look into this a bit. Don't give up! We will get it working!

It doessn't work allready. Thinking about to cancel my account and stay at devineart. This account makes no sense when I can't get feedback of my work, because its impossible to upload something. Same as "you get 500 points if you are in the monthly galerie." I'm in, but points... Its allready a joke.
