Hi! I am kicking the tires on Discourse looking at adopting it for a new forum project. I have built a fresh environment using the latest version (2.0.8.beta6). While testing image uploads, I am running into an issue where small image uploads work fine, but larger image uploads show a “Processing” message that never seems to progress and resolve to an actual imbedded image. Instead, the post retains these blue links instead of the image - and clicking the links produces no response.
the screenshot below is of 3 images, 2 largish and one small. In my limited testing, the size threshold between success and failure seems to be about 400 kb.
@anon73664359 thanks for the heads up. I just tried disabling " composer media optimization image enabled" in settings and uploading larger files now works. Sounds like this is a client-side component. I am not seeing any errors in the browser JS console. I think that I saw this might be a new feature in the release I am running. Is this a know issue? Or should I file a bug?
I just ran into this problem with the Processing step never completing as well, but turning on force_https did not solve it for me (using the current version of Brave in macOS 11.6 Big Sur). I worked around the problem by converting the 3.5 MB PNG image to a 524 KB JPEG.
Interestingly, the dashboard suggestion for the day was to turn on force_https, so I wasn’t perturbed to do that, but I’m guessing it wasn’t in the default instructions when my tech guy installed as well.
