Updating images....getting frustrated

Thursday, September 25, 2008 by ImStein | Discussion: WinCustomize Site Issues

At first I thought I was doing something wrong, but it turns out that I'm not. I am trying to update my avatar and screenshot images in my settings. I plug in the correct path, upload, get the upload successful, and yet nothing changes. The images are the same, as if I didn't upload new ones. Anyone got an idea of what could be going on? Is it me, or is there a glitch somewhere, and no one has caught on to it, because we are too set in our ways, and just don't change our avatars and such(mine has been the same for I don't know how many years ).


Some one, Help......PLEASE!!!!!!

Assuming they are actually uploading.........You probably need to log out of both the main site & the forums, clear your browser cache (ctrl+F5) then log back in to both the main site and the forums.......and you need to give them time to propogate across all the servers.

It's happening to me too! I keep getting an "image may be corrupted" message. Been trying to 3 weeks and nothing seems to work.

Grrrrrrrr......I have cleaned out the cache, I have logged out, and back in, tried to reupload, and I still get nothing. Any other suggestions?

This was true of the old system (and attempting to update via your personal wc site/main wc site), however it's not true of the new system (impulsedriven.net, joeuser.com, forums). On the WC Personal Sites, updating your personal images is pretty much broken at the moment. Although, some people have had to use CTL+F5 after uploading on the forums. Seems that there are some agressive browser cache's out there

I would reccommend updating your images from the forums (https://forums.wincustomize.com or forums.whateversiteyourvisitingfrom.com)

K, uploaded at the forum, and that took. I guess I get to wait and see what happens from here. Thank you for the help.
