Kev,

I noticed the drag-and-drop feature does not seem to work in "Preview" mode. Not a big deal but thought I'd mention it.

When adding photos, be sure the [PROCESSING IMAGE.... PLEASE WAIT] message is gone before submitting! Your image will not show if the message is still there. Kev, is there a way to hide the submit button or maybe something while photos are processing?

I hid a bunch of options on the New Post/Edit Post/Reply editor, which should never really be changed. This should declutter it quite a bit.

The issue with that is there are times when something happens, and it doesn't finish processing or fails to call back and update the screen. In those instances, you would be stuck, as the button would be disabled.

Currently, let's say, after 30 seconds or so, it doesn't update, a user could delete that [PROCESSING IMAGE... PLEASE WAIT] message and just try again.

That message is just text that gets appended to the existing text in the Edit Window to let you know something is happening. Then, after the image gets uploaded, resized, and compressed, it replaces that message text with the URL/IMG tags to display the image.

After that, it's just text. The image is already in place, and the text is just the "pointer" to it. This means I can cut and paste that to somewhere else in the message if I need to reformat the message.

The great thing about this also, is if someone 'Quotes' your message in a reply, any images in that section they quoted will also show in that reply. So it helps to maintain context for the reader.

I have figured out the reason for those who have had an issue with the website logging you out when it shouldn't.

If I am logged in, and then I open another browser tab, and let's say I go to Google and search for something Packard-related. If one of those Google search links is back to PackardInfo and you click on it, opening another copy of the website in that tab, that new Google supplied link is opened with a null session attached to it. Which invalidates your existing session token. So when you return to your original browser tab, and refresh the screen, you will now see that you have been logged out.

I'll see if there is something I can do to resolve it, but in the meantime, it's just something to be aware of.

That’s interesting! I don’t think that my own logout issue was to do with it but the issue seems to come and go in spells. Usually I have to log back in each time I open the site and if I click away to another tab for anything even unrelated, when I re-open the tab even just seconds later I must log in again. However, at the moment it seems to have stayed logged in which may last a couple days. It’s not really an issue as the browser usually “remembers” the login and password but just mentioning it while we’re on the subject.

Yes I have noticed that many times. Thanks for looking into it 🙂
