Default Issue Uploading Images To Site

Is anyone else having issues trying to upload images to the site?

I just tried several times and they all fail, despite being within size restraints.

I also noticed in another post from a couple of weeks back, the image I had attached then has gone.

I've taken the liberty of sending IT a message, in the hope that's it is affecting everyone, and not just me.

Not working here. Tried Firefox, Chrome and Internet Exploder ... same error.



Edit: Same in Edge on Windows 10 too.

I haven't been able to download anything from the D3 tech dump on my phone or tablet recently. I could previously.

Strange.
Tech dump PDFs appear as a black page.
Is this Ian's version of the "Blue Screen of Death"?


Sorry Ian, it was the leprechauns that made me do it.

Just trying again with Edge on W10 (x64), seems OK, could it be ISP-related (I'm on PlusNet)?:

Just to add some more info for Ian when he gets around to looking at it, and would ask others here who have commented to assist, as I've come across something else which may be more significant.

In addition to not being able to upload any images, I've also checked all the write-ups that I've done that included images and have listed two below:

1. Replaced alarm horn
2. Chrome Boot Struts

and of the five of them, one is NOT displaying any of the attached images, this being the Chrome Boot Struts one.

Could I ask you to check each of the links above and report which ones have or have not any images. I came across this irregularity whilst reading someone else's write-up. One further check which might help Ian as well. Here are two single posts from a thread in 2016, and in my case, I can see the images in the first post (#77), but not in the second post (#81). Can you check these as well?

Could you also add your OS, browser and ISP, just in case that may or may not be relevant. Thanks.

Results
1. Yes, 2. No, 77. Yes, 81.No - W10x64, Chrome/Firefox/Edge, Origin Broadband
