    Ok what am I doing wrong, when I PM someone my first initial post it will let me attach pictures but if the conversation has already begun and I want to post a picture, it will tell me temporary unavailable try again later.

    For example, me and another byc member have been talking back and forth about the status of some shipped eggs sent to me, threw PM'ing. Then the other day we got talking about a different breed of chickens so I tried to attach my Cochins picture but it gave me an error message. So I started a new PM with her and boom I was able to attach the same picture with no problems what so ever.

    I tried copy and paste won't allow me I hit the attach picture button, gives me temporary out of service try again later. But if I compose a new PM works just fine.

    IE has been having a few problems lately. You might want to try Google Chrome or Fire Fox

    OK, I think I may have found out why I'm having difficulties in getting pictures to post to an already message. I have discovered that when posting pictures you must have everything closed out. I would have the PM opened and a BYC Forum opened and was getting the error message, but when I ONLY had one opened at a time, I was able to post pictures. So it may or may not be an Internet explorer problem it could be that you can't have two things opened at once...

    Thanks for posting. It sounds like there are some wonky things going on with your PC / Browser. I'm able to have 20+ BYC browsers open at the same time and posting pics, PM's, posts, etc.

    You may have some plugins / addons / extensions causing problems. We've seen that happen in the past.
