Yeah, same thing here.
Since a certain point in time today I have been unable to upload images and videos. Early on I could, but then I couldn’t.
I‚Äôve tried uploading PNGs, JPGs and MP4 but keep getting a pop-up that says ‚Äú-200‚ÄĚ.
Neither the images nor the videos are particularly large.
I tried logging out of the site and restarting Firefox but get the same error pop-up.
I’ve checked my site attachments usage and I’m nowhere near my limit.

We were trying to block some (Russian) bots attacking our forums and the rules we applied (this morning as a test) stopped me editing posts too.  We have found a better way to do this now, so please try again and come back here if you are still having problems.

FWIW, I just added this post, edited it, added a jpg attachment on a second edit, & all worked fine. I have just now edited it again to just what is seen here, so I guess everything is working as it should now.

7 hours ago I could not add a screenshot to this post -- I got the mysterious "7" error whenever I tried. A few minutes ago I tried editing the post to add the screenshot & it worked.

Error code 7 when trying to upload a small png file, also tried the same file in jpg format (same error)

In this thread/post...

https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/109786-how-to-achieve-evenly-distributed-dashes-for-dashed-lines/&do=findComment&comment=593359

2 minutes after my attempted upload someone else successfully uploaded images to the same thread, so not sure what is going on.


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

And I'm still getting the "7" errors.

I hope that whatever it is gets fixed soon.

Did the forum recently start a limited minimal dimension for pictures?
I used to be able to upload small pics under 30 px size ‚Äď yesterday I tried to upload a screenshot with 159 x 60 px but got this error:

60407178_forumlimitedimagedimension.jpg.2c35053c72241ac1c35dae3345dc5c7b.jpg

Because today I was able to upload larger screenshots it made me think of "200" might mean pixel size ‚Äď hm?

I've gotten the -200 error even on very small screenshots over the past two days.

And it will fail in one post and be fine on the next. Or work for several, then fail, with similarly sized images.

It seem to be something weird in the forum software.

Thanks Walt. Good to know its not me (but the Russians? ;).
I just tried the yesterday screenshot as upscaled to 200 px jpg, it also failed first (but did upload in another trial) ‚Äď whereas a 195 px image did not fail at first but in 2nd trial.

Another screenshot jpg just created the message "There was a problem uploading the file".

1145687409_problemuploadingfile.jpg.972dad75f8849286b6c707a2917562e9.jpg

Probably because of this two failed upload left-overs in the bottom area (which I can't delete but need to quit & restart the posting):

1897804750_uploadfailed-200.jpg.9d7e6298654c10c3bba0332ff42ce89f.jpg

By the way, since the recent forums update I still get occasionally the issue that drag-and-drop doesn't work while upload via "choose files..." does. (but it's no solution for the -200 error)

EDIT, solved: [@Patrick, just another little glitch which did not occur to me before the recent forums update:

In my user profile a change of the signature can be set and saved but is not reflected in postings, neither in existing nor in new. I updated my signature (macOS & hardware) some days ago + today again, the change appears correct in the profile edit view but does not appear in thread view. (Before that, I successfully updated in February just a number, so I guess the recent update is involved in the issue.) ]

Besides this a related question: a signature mentions soft-/hardware configuration which can be helpful to judge an issue. Now, if a configuration update occurs an updated signature might not be correct for older posts. So, is it possible to make a change of the signature only affecting new post, written after the signature change?

I've pointed the web developers at this thread (again)

While they are investigating this maybe they can do the same for a couple of other glitches, too?

One is that my custom streams are all set to show topics in the Condensed view but every so often one will revert to the Expanded one. This has been happening sporadically ever since the last forum software upgrade.

The other glitch is also sporadic & just started happening in the last day or two. Usually when I click on the Notifications bell icon at the top of a forum page, the new notifications appear in a dropdown list below the icon. But several times now, clicking the icon jumps directly to the 'View all notifications' page.

Neither glitch is serious & they are probably going to be difficult to reproduce but I just thought I would mention them in case they are somehow related to the other ones.

The forum signature is not part of your profile, thomaso. It is set in Account settings, not in Edit Profile.
