I ran a test thread this morning to see if inserting images would run for multiple pics without previewing after one or two (to avoid losing the uploads and text). I loaded 10 pics without failure. That issue appears to be corrected, thankfully.
The new problem for the past two days happens when I preview a new thread (including my test this morning): I need to refresh several times after hitting the preview button (or preview/refresh in multiples) in order for all the text and pics to show in the new thread and edit box. Sometimes the dreaded red "X" shows where pics should be, with other pics showing just fine, and some of the text may not appear. The missing items may happen in the thread preview or edit box, or both. I don't recall having this issue several days ago, so it's a new problem, possibly from the latest maintenance/uprades?
I've been running IE8 for the past sevral months as Firefox was causing other page editing problems at that time. Other than that, I've not changed anything on my end for months...same ISP, connection device, computer, etc.
