  1. I haven't been able to get metadata to upload properly, either, but from the site design I'm guessing that this will be a bug that's soon to be patched. The first time I uploaded and metadata were gone, I discovered I'd inadvertently made a preset in Lightroom that stripped the metadata. Once I fixed that, though, the metadata uploaded but they appear to have loaded into the wrong categories.
    Thanks, Mark - I'll add it to the list.
  2. Dell Insprion and Dell XPS 8500, Windows 10 64 bit, Firefox 51.0.1 64 bit version on both machines, uBlock ad blocker on one, bluehell firewall on the other machine (browser ad on). Norton security. Only jpegs show as upload options from folders containing tiff, jpeg, and pdf files. I was trying to upload to a forum thread.
    Suggestions in the provided link failed to help.

    Other photo sites that did an upgrade worked quickly without much fanfare. This is the only site I have trouble with.
  3. What I did when I was having some problems with Safari compatibility early on was download Google Chrome and set it up as an icon on my desktop that I could use just to access the site--that way I didn't have to change my default browser. The Firefox/Photonet combination does seem to have issues at the moment. Using an alternative browser isn't convenient, but it might be a useable short-term workaround until the problem is fixed.

    Norman 202 i am the light

    now, whenever i login i see pictures of couples cavorting. the debauchery is indescribable. where can i buy more?
  5. I have chrome on the XPS for a special usage, tried it, it worked for the upload.
  6. Changed my Screen Name to "Brian", saved changes, logged off/logged in, checked account settings, screen name shows as "brian" in the information field...:

    Want to see what name this posts as, "null_account_name" or "brian"
  7. Totally Screwed Up..

    The Photo.net member formally known as "Brian"

    "null_account_name", cool. Looks like an error message.
  8. Will we ever get the ability to ignore or block someone?
  9. The Ignore function works.

    Go to your account settings, click on "people you ignore"


    You cannot ignore yourself.

    You get the following for people on ignore list.You can easily stop ignoring people as well.
    • You are ignoring content by this member.
  10. "unknown # of members cannot log onto site due to 403 error: forbidden request (partly solved: differs by browser)"

    Don't know what "partly solved: differs by browser" means. I have had no luck -- on Debian Linux -- with Chromium, Firefox ESR, Midori and Epiphany.

    Shoot me a direct message with a link example of what is broken. All photo and gallery links should be in tact, we test daily. so "start a conversation" with me here in forums with the links in question and we'll check them out.

    Yes - Children is in family now. We realize it is not a one size fits all scenario, but felt based on what that category was mostly used for "family" was a more appropriate title. If photographing children while traveling broad - I would classify that as travel or street or journalism depending on the photo and setting.
  16. It took several hours, but my screen name is coming up as shown in my account settings.

    No more
  17. Not sure how things are prioritizing for fixes but these major issues are still problematic:
    1. Initial Portfolio View only shows the 4 most recent galleries no more. Gallery view preference makes no difference regardless of browser (Chrome, Firefox, or IE-11)
    2. Cover photo does not remain set in Portfolio View regardless of browser. (Does remain set in Profile View however).
    3. There is no camera data for a majority of images and the fields are not editable. New uploads do display EXIF data rather cryptically in the Edit Details of the Picture window. "My camera equipment" data has not yet been recovered and is no longer displayed for images without EXIF metadata.
    4. My custom fields no longer display. - More information about the model, the story behind the picture, etc. These have had information in them for years.
    5. Gallery and full Portfolio comments are gone.
    6. Recent uploads from photographers I am following are no longer seen. (Used to rely on this to check-out new uploads.)
    7. The Gallery Header image for the four galleries that do display (these are the only ones that display), appear to be determined by the first image in the gallery. This setting appears to have been changed? I thought there was a dialogue box to set the header image? Most verticals (portrait format) or images with borders make crappy headers and the 75 pixel per inch image/screen resolution doesn't work very well for any header. Will I now have to use only landscape format images first and then higher resolution images in addition too for that first image?
    8. Continuously getting HTTP "404" Not Found errors in other photographer's galleries. The only option is to go back to previous or click the "Home" link on that page, which totally removes you from the gallery. There is no way to effectively navigate forward with this error.

  18. I have a similar number of photos and folders (galleries or whatever they are now) and I'm experiencing the same woes as you.
  19. I'm sorry--my error! I had thought it had been solved on the basis of several comments, then it turns out it wasn't. I've reentered it as unsolved in the list.
  20. So, where or how do you add to that list? I see how to do it in forum posts, but if a spammer wants to upload a bunch of porn to the image critique section and they have never posted in the forum's, there seems to be no way to block them. I have seen several guys join photo.net and do nothing but upload and share pics of their peckr. I would like to block that sort of content.
