I tried to change the profile background image by uploading a picture from my computer and I can't get it to work. Anyone else having this problem.
@moonlake Sorry to hear about the problems you are experiencing trying to upload a profile background image.
This sounds like it may be related to a known issue uploading images to the site:
We are still working to fully address this known intermittent photo upload issue.
In the meantime I would suggest trying Firefox 19 and/or Chrome 24.
In the current state, many users have retrying the upload eventually results in successfully uploading it.
If it helps, you can email the image you are tryung to user to email@example.com with "attn: Matt M http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/108510" as the subject line.
My guess is that it isn't related to the image itself, but we can eliminate that as a possibility.
I can't seem to replicate the problem- what browser are you using? Have you tried changing the background image from a different browser?
I haven't tried a different browser I will do that right now. When I upload a background all I get is the box with an X in it.
I've tried 4 browser it just won't upload a picture it's either blank or it has an X in it.
Try after sometime and also try to reduce the image size or test it with a lighter image, say 50 kb ? Also close all your browsers and then open a fresh browser and try again !
I will do that. I tried to upload an image I have uploaded before for background and even that wouldn't work. I keep my images pretty small but will try smaller and see if that will work.
