Yes, I've had a number of 20 second waits over the last few days.

Noticed it's been struggling a bit the last two or three days.

It seems to be better now. I think they were training a new hamster.

Can somebody feed the hamster, or remove the treacle that is clogging up the lines, forum is running very slow again.

What    is   a   PDF
Portable Document Format - a file which can contain rich text, images, all sorts of stuff. Popular in the days when people used various different word processor applications with differing formats.  Originally intended as a read-only format I think.   Usually formatted into pages as they would be printed.  So like a Word Processor document but can be read on different software platforms using a PDF reader and without needing to own MS Word, Office or whatever. 

The "Attachments and other options" function on here seems to be limited to PDFs, I guess it's to allow someone to attach documents, instruction sheets and other useful stuff like that.   

Unfortunately when newbies first want to add photos they notice the Attachments option, discover it only works for PDF and convert their photos to PDF files in order to upload something.

Same as Nick, it tends to rotate photos I post from my phone, but otherwise it works pretty faultlessly.

Cant    you   make   it   easyer   to   post   pics

Never ever had a problem.  It works perfectly fine using "Add image to post and upload to gallery" and either add a random photo or add to your own gallery.   

I agree it's a little different to the way other forums handle it and therefore newbies sometimes seem to fall foul of it until they're shown how.  Many seem to try to use "Attachments and other options" as that's what you do on most other forums, and end up adding PDFs of their photos.

I do sometimes add photos directly from my user gallery itself.   I'm always using the gallery to find stuff I've uploaded before, to include in new posts and replies and save uploading a duplicate.
