Image Saving Problems
Sorry to bring this up again, but I do feel there is a problem and Fayebear's prior thread was locked. This problem would also be on Design's by Faye

I am on Windows XP ... I have all the appropriate updates and run IE6 as my browser. On my board, I can not save any of the graphics to my HD. They come up as untitled bitmaps and are hosted on my boards space ... however .. Poll Thread ... in this thread here, I can not save Sheena's signature and it is hosted on frost ... BUT I can save junglegirljlt's signature image correctly and that is hosted on netscape.

On Design's by Faye ... this thread ... Floral Welcome Thread ... I can save the flower welcome correctly and it is hosted at photobucket, yet Faye's signature hosted on frost, I cannot save correctly.

I can also save most anything I run across on junglegirljlt's movie board and she is on the emerald server.

I also had a friend of mine double check this on my board. He was unable to save the files correctly either and he is on Windows 98 and IE Browser

Ok, I can't edit my post but I need to correct something. My friend who double checked this for me is on Windows 2000 professional version 5.0, not 98. His browser version is IE6 also.

Re: Image Saving Problems
I locked it before because it isn't something we been able to pin down a cause for, so for now, it isn't something we can fix. I will make sure to show these two recent threads to BbBoy so he can take a look again at the frost server to see if there is anything conflicting anywhere creating a situation where you are only offered bitmaps when going to save images. :smile:

Re: Image Saving Problems
we have this same problem on our board with all users and we're on the gold server. We also had the problem back when we were on the frost server as well. All images save as only an untitled bitmap with no other way of saving it. I would LOVE to get this resolved too if possible. TIA!

Re: Image Saving Problems
I asked BbBoy about this and it seems it is some kind of browser issue that a windows update fixes. :smile:

Re: Image Saving Problems
Well, I have the newest update available to me. If it were a browser issue, wouldn't I have the same problem on any website on the net? I can save graphics and .gif's from all over the place. I only have this problem on certain bboard servers. I can save on emerald server but not frost or gold servers?

Re: Image Saving Problems
exact same for me, I can save all over the net in different formats, except for bbboards.

Re: Image Saving Problems
Ditto on the two above posts. What a bummer, I have a board where I offer images I have made for people and they can't save them right when they are hosted here on my server.

Re: Image Saving Problems
It is some kind of browser issue.. I've just tried saving Sheena's signature in both IE6 & Mozilla. When i tried saving it in IE, i only got the bitmap option, but when i tried saving it in Mozilla, it let me save it as a gif :smile:

Re: Image Saving Problems
The same would apply though, Nickdisk. Why can I save all over the net and not on certain bboard servers? This is the *only* place I run across this issue.

Re: Image Saving Problems
I can only tell you that isn't something we have found a reason for on our end. As far as Fayebear's board goes-I just asked BbBoy about this and he would be willing to move all your files, threads and such to say poetsgalaxy on emerald that you never set up-no one has ever complained about this on emerald so if you would like that Fayebear let us know and we can do it-also can rename the old poetsgalaxy into whatever you'd like. :smile:

Tripletmom, you have a no right click on your board so it isn't an issue for your members since they cannot right click to save as anyway, correct? :smile: At any rate I was able to save images as gifs from your board and if others wanted to they would have no trouble either. :wink:

Re: Image Saving Problems
the problem is actually when someone posts an attachment and you try to save that. When you click the attachment and right click the image, the no-right click script doesn't apply to it and thats when it only offers a bitmap to save for any image and it happens for every member on my board that has tried. We usually make sigs for our members and post them as an attachment for them to save so most of our members have tried and had the same problem.

Re: Image Saving Problems
If anyone is wondering how to save images from frost, then look up-go to File-Save As-HTML Web Page and you'll get a folder with all the gifs on the page you saved. I understand people are frustrated, but there isn't anything we can do or we'd have done it way back last year when it first came up. This is the main work around-save the web page and you have the images. :smile:

Re: Image Saving Problems
If you can link to an example Tripletmom I will see if I can find a way to save the attachment. If the person won't update their browsers and only gets the BMP extension I don't know what to tell you. I can save things off my frost board. :ohwell: You could always email them to the members who wanted the file. :smile:

Re: Image Saving Problems
here's a link to an attachment on my board. Its not just the members, its all of admin including myself and I know I have the newest updates for my browser, so I don't know. I can just email them from now on. Thanks.

Re: Image Saving Problems
I think I will leave the board where it is...it should be okay. I can just make sure I use an outside hosting server for my graphics people need to save. :smile: Thanks!
