    I have uploaded many images for my content, yet none seem to display with the story. Why? It indicated that all did upload OK. What is the reason? is there a delay?

    I am an engineer here at HubPages and I will try to help you out if I can. A couple of your hubs have photo capsules, but they are all empty. Did you make sure to save the photo capsule and the hub after you uploaded your images? It would help if you could give me a more detailed description of what happens.

    Yes, i did that before and just now. It states it saving and then it all vanishes, as if there is no record. It is not working at your end. I am using IE 7. The browser should not be the issue. It is a bug.

      I was able to upload images into a photo capsule using IE7 into one of your hubs without any problems (the rock and roll one). I can only speculate what the problem might be since I can't replicate it. Have you tried different images? Make sure that your image sizes are not too big (smaller than 8MB). You might try uploading just a single photo at once. Make sure that the spinning "working" icon at the top of the page goes away before you save your hub. Other than that, it's possible that the problem might be with your internet connection. I realize that this is frustrating for you, but I don't think that it is a "bug" as such since the problem is not widespread and I cannot replicate it.

    After you select your photo location, you need to hit the "upload" button before you hit the "save" button.

    I am having problems uploading photos, they are not loading into hubpages. I have managed to get a couple to upload by doing them one at a time but even that failed when I tried to load the next photo on it's own.

    I am seeing 'requesting from hubpages' and then 'done' in the status bar but the photo is not there and the logo is saying it is still uploading but I can see by monitoring my network connection that no packets are being sent or received as soon as the status bar changes to done.

    I gave up yesterday and tried again today which is when I managed to get 2 photos loaded, taking a lot of time up and getting nowhere. Can anyone take a look please.

    I am also having some problems from yesterday.

    After uploading photos, when i click the save button and look at the capsule, the photos  seem to have disappeared.

    They are not getting saved sometimes.

    last night it took about 5 hours to upload 7 different pictures to a new hub- I never experienced anything like this before with hubpages...all of the images were far below 8mb - I attempted with Firefox, IEtab in Firefox, Flock , and finally IE (yuck)...I would have to close down the hub , save and then reedit the whole hub to even come close to being able to add a new image.

    the worst part - it was supposed to be a super quick hub to help get over some writers block....instead 5 hours of attempted uploading yuck!

    My issue wasnt that images werent being saved...just that they would stall in the uploading process

    We're investigating, but we were not able to reproduce the problem ourselves this morning.  Is anyone currently experiencing the same problems with image uploads?

      Everything looks stuck up when we do. 

      Presently I am able to save the text.  But the link capsule and the photo capsule vanishes as soon as I hit the save button.  I did all types of circus like testing the link, etc before hitting the save button to see the link disappearing.

    Yep. Having the photo issue today. I upload a photo, write a caption, save.. The picture doesn't show. Repeat.. Usually by about the 3rd try the photo sticks to the hub.

    These types of relatively isolated problems are very hard for us to investigate, because we can't easily replicate the local conditions on your machine.  I was able to upload images and create link capsules without trouble, as were others.  There are a couple of things we usually recommend trying in cases like these --

    1) Open the hub editing page, and then hold down shift and click the refresh button.  This will force your browser to reload cached javascript, and other files.

    2) Try a different browser, if you normally use IE try Firefox, and vice versa.

    If neither of these work, there may be some transient issues with your internet connection.

    We haven't made any changes on our side of things in several weeks, so we can rule out new bugs in our software (although I'm sure there are still some old ones).

    Well, I loaded some images on an already existing hub, and it worked fine for me. No problems.

      Thanks a lot. I have to admit, a lot was done from memory and just double checking. Was a lot of fun.
