Hi Bernie,

The HTTP 500 error message generally indicates a problem with the server rather than something with your computer or internet connection.
However, you were able to post the message above OK. So maybe whatever caused the message to appear when posting in the For Sale forum has now disappeared.
Could you try again please?

Dave

Thanks Dave, I get the message " there is already an attachment with the same file name. rename the file and try again" Will I need to save the pictures somewhere else and rename them then? In the meantime, I'll try to list something else.
Cheers,
Bernie

Hi Bernie,

"there is already an attachment with the same file name. rename the file and try again"

Yes, this message just means someone else has uploaded an attachment with the same name. So just rename your files by sticking something additional on the end.
eg an image called "IMG_1234.jpg" gets renamed to IMG_1234x.jpg".

Then try attaching that.

If that doesn't work and the error message persists, just post the text of your message in the forum where you want it and email the photos to me at photos@douglasmotorcycles.net.
I will see your message appear in the forum and then add the photos to your post.

Dave
