I have an empty gallery that I cannot delete or change

  1. For reasons unknown, I have an empty gallery that shows up on my gallery page.

    I tried to delete it -doesn't work. I tried to change it's name - doesn't work. I tried to add a picture to it - I get a 404 page not found error.

    If I start with an uploaded photo, and try to put it in a gallery the "Empty Gallery" does not show up as a choice.

    Any way to get rid of it??

    Apparently, something has happened - I now have an empty gallery that performs exactly as you describe, with the exception that I was able to change its name. I will fool around with it some more after a bit. Possibly it can be sorted if It can't be removed. Will get back to you.
    Edit: Naming does not stick, it is invisible in Gallery sort mode, photos cannot be added to it. I will revisit it, but chances are we're stuck with it. If a couple of regulars would check to see if they have one of these and let me know, I'd appreciate it!

  3. Just to add more info, it shows up on my public profile as a gallery called “Photos”. It has no photos in it. When I click on it, it’s empty.
  4. AND I have 2 blank photos in my public profile and my own photos page. Clearly something has happened to corrupt the database - sure wish it could be fixed.

    Sorry - no where to go with the issue. There are several fixes needed that are of higher priority and have been for some time. Unfortunately, we're stuck with randomness at this point.
  7. ..to all useful purposes, a visitor such as myself sees 5 galleries: Abstract/Birds/Landscape/Insects/Flowers ...none entitled Photos and all with something in them
