I keep trying to upload new thumbnail images for my comics, but it won't show up for some reason. Also, my profile avatar keeps going back to my old one.

WAAH! QAQ My thumbnail turned into No Thumbnail all of a sudden and I can't change it and my title image won't change too! What's happening?

GEEZUS!

Thank you so much ctrl+F5 guy! It's a weird miracle. 0_0

Thank you thank you!

I just clicked in the new file box and pushed it - and tadah~

I'll have to tell my friend this. She has problems editing her pages - is that a similar problem?

Is there any way to change the icon that appears on the main page when you update? I can't seem to get the old one off, and a new one on. I get to the browse function, but it never pastes the link up when I find the file I want. Any one else with this issue?

It's the same problem. If you've uploaded a new image, press Ctrl+F5 - that'll display the new one for a while (to you, anyway!) and at least let you know it has been accepted. It will settle down properly after a few days.

Alternatively (and I haven't tried this myself!) upload the new image with a different file extension (.jpeg instead of .jpg, for example). JustNoPoint tells me that this works and, since he knows far more about this stuff than I do, I tend to believe him!

It didn't work for me. But I tend to have bad luck with these sorts of things. :(

I don't know if it works for title images or for thumbnails. I haven't tried it yet.

But it had worked 100% for me and others I have told about it with replacing a page in your comic.

Did you try ctrl+F5 after you uploaded your new extension?

I want to change my damn avatar!! I changed the ext.to jpeg and it disappeared all together. I changed it back and tried to upload it again and the old one came back!! How?
I also can't change my title pg. I tried uploading it in netscape and firefox, it totally ignored me, about a wk later it changed. It was the new one for about a week and now it's back to the old one!! I can' take it.

I can't do that ctrl 5 whatever…I have a mac.

Y'all should put a note in the place where you upload your avatar and title pg. saying…you better pick an image you want for the rest of your life ‘cos you won’t be able to change it!

If you're using mac with firefox, just hit “command+shift+R” after you upload the thumbnail. It's working for me right now, but I don't know whether that's just a fluke (did they fix it and I didn't realise?). Anyway, that's the equivalent of hitting “alt+F5”.

Seems this is only full proof for updating your comic pages.

I have to hit ctrl+F5 a lot to see my new avatar and comic thumbnail even though I changed their extensions.

Though the more often I hit F5 the less often the old one shows up for me.

I think the Ctrl+F5 (and, presumably, Command+Shift+R) really just let you know that the new files have been accepted. It is only temporary and you still have to wait for DD to actually display the correct files to others.

That's the theory I'm working on, anyway!

I acknowledge your frustration but that is not actually helpful.

Then stop waisting time about how I'm not helping you, and fix the glitch in the system. How long does that take? No…Really! How long does that take?

You've not been following things have you? lol!

Seriously, don't be a dick about it ok? ^^
EVERYONE, including us admin people, already feel the same way.

As ozone said, stop being a dick. I put up with that cos I'm an admin, but if I wasn't, you'd be frozen right now. :)

If you had even read the other thread you made about this, you'd know there's only one person who can fix this stuff, and it unfortunately isn't me.

Ya ok.

Volte is working on it, that's HIS role. We deal with people asking questions about it and give advice on how to get around it, that's OUR role.

For all images, saving it with a different extension will work, but only until you've tried all the extensions: Jpg, png, gif.

For your comic title image, if you use a custom template you can set it up as a standard HTML image tag and totally circumvent the image bug altogether.



We also talk to Volte and tell him how desperately people need this and ask for progress reports and updates. That's all we (normal comic admins) can do. Sorry.

I'm starting to have a Thumbnail problem of my own now.

The image itself would be uploaded and you'd actually see the change but after a while for some strange reason (even after I deleted the old image from the files) the old image comes back. Maybe it's just on my end, but if it's not, how do I solve this?

Same problem here.

why won't the banners in my signature go smaller? I mean, those image files were even deleted. Where are they cached? I uploaded new image files over 2 weeks ago, but the signature won't get updated.
Also the thumbnail for my comic Sigmund won't get updated. I uploaded the right sized thumbnail last year, and it still hasn't got refreshed. Should I wait maybe another couple of years?

oops! the ctrl+f5 technique seems to work well. sorry.

I dunno how big you're intending your sig images to be, but the're both pretty big for me… each one is bigger than the max allowed (480x60 TOTAL, not each)

For sig images, it's extremely easy:
1.Either change the name of the file to something else (from “babanner.jpg” to “myAd.jpg” for example)
2. Save it as a different file type to what it is currently (png or gif instead of jpg)
3. Or, host it elsewhere :)
