This was reported back in May 2009, and has resurfaced today.
When uploading multiple photos, the scroll bar moves to the right while the script says “creating thumbnail”. Then it eventually says “thumbnail created” and moves onto the next upload - but the thumbnail never appears.
When I search my photos, most recent date first, the non-thumbnailed images are not there. So the uploads are going into a black hole.
I have logged out and back in several times, and cleared my cache numerous times.
Not able to upload at the moment.
(note: I also tried uploading a single image and had the same result)
It compares the contents of the file – the photo you were uploading had already been uploaded (by you). It remembers the filename and was just displaying that so you would know which file was a duplicate. So, you don’t have to worry bout duplicate filenames.
Sorry to harp on about this, but we’re back to the original problem.
The first time I loaded the photo, I got the ‘creating thumbnail’ message then… nothing. The tag page did not appear, and as you say it was now a duplicate filename (from me) but the photo was in limbo. So if this happens again I just retrieve my photos by username and should be able to tag it there. Yes ?
