 If someone copies a photo from one location and then just pastes it to their post, depending on the photo, this can cause the whole forum section where it was posted to go all wonky.  (technical term).    This is something that our forum software should not do, but we are still waitiing for our forum update so it's still a bit rickety right now.   So for now, just be sure to upload photos through the attachment area below the text box or use the photo icon above (the icon with the mountains and sun) to add photos to your posts.  

Thank you and Binky on!

When I posted a video from YouTube this weekend, I copied their "embed" code, then pasted that. Could that have been a problem? If so, where should I paste the embed code? Thanks.

Pam -- no wasn't you. Imbedding the youtube is not a problem as it has a proper recognizable code. And the error message happens at the moment the person makes their post -- it won't break later, it breaks in that instant of the post.

FrankieFlash-- sure, sure, likely story! haha. No, we know it wasn't you. We can locate the actual post.

We can locate it pretty quickly, but unfortunately we can't delete just the post, due to how the error message is -- we have to delete the whole thread. So if it had alot of responses and was important, it just gets squashed.
