I've checked the site this evening and it's working correctly so you should be able to read the page. Not sure what you mean by a house with an orange roof. Let me know and I will see if there is something strange going on.

I emailed admin about this months ago. (got no reply) The icon with mountains is no longer there.

The house is there though but it goes pear shaped if you use it.

Sorry you didn't get a reply to your earlier email. I always reply to emails I receive as it's an important part of the site admin role. However, on this occasion I must have missed it when it came in or it got waylaid en route.

When Mike posted his original message I checked the system using a variety of settings and couldn't replicate the problem, hence my reply posting that everything seemed to be OK on Friday.

However, I have done some more checks over the weekend by logging on with different users "roles" using different browsers and other settings. It seems that under certain circumstances Internet Explorer would freeze when trying to upload images (or at least, not work in the correct way). Firefox and Chrome seemed to work OK, which may explain why some users could post images and others could not.

I have now made some changes to the system, including an update to the underlying text editor used to create postings, and everything now seems to work correctly in all three browsers.

Please have another go at posting an image but let me know if you're still having problems.

Clive's offer to post images on Mike's behalf is very generous but if you send them to me I can insert them into your own messages (Clive would only be able to insert into his own postings).

Once again, sorry for any inconvenience. I will be tweaking the settings on the site later on and will update the instructions on how to post images soon.
