I can't change the image files for my comic pages or upload a new thumbnail for it. My images are the proper size and file format. My browser is Mozilla Firefox. The send button is showing up, but the images won't change. I tried clearing my image cache and that didn't work either. Can anyone help?

Yeah - this must be one of the most common gripes against DD.

Thumbnail - It probably is updated but isn't displaying properly yet. Typically, it can take two days for changes to take effect. If you press Ctrl+F5 (I think) you should be able to see what it will look like when it does change.

Pages - Forget it! This can take anything up to two weeks before changes kick in. Unless you have a lot of Comments you can't bear to lose, delete the page and upload the replacement as a new page.

It's been driving me up the wall, which can only mean one things…

I was wondering why none of my pages were updating.
This is a major problem.

I can't change my title image either. I hope they fix it soon, because this is a pretty cool site otherwise.

Maybe you could delete your comic and make a new one with the same name, files, and everything?

One workaround I found was changing the file format, example Comic.jpg to Comic.png or Comic.gif (if not that many colors) or (as a last resort due to size) Comic.bmp

I noticed that too, and although I tried what you did only that worked, course that means that you only have so many chances to change things…

Avatar from Wazaga It was really cheap, and are much larger than this.

Yeah, just change the extension.

.jpg > .jpeg
Need to edit the page again?
.jpeg > .png or .gif… etc

You can even use .gif

You don't have to SAVE AS .gif or png, etc

just change .jpg to any extension DD uses. It will work even if a jpg is renamed to .gif with no color loss.

Yeah, usually when I update a page, I put in the comments “Clear your cache if you can't see the changes!”

:)
Until it's fixed, I guess we'll all have to do that…
THIS NEW SITE SUCKS I'M LEAVING FOREVER I PROMISE, GUYS.
NOT BLUFFING, I'M GONE IF YOU DON'T FIX IT.
Oh god I'm so alone someone pay attention to me
