I went to change my header today and it keeps uploading as a plain gray box. Anyone else haveing this problem? I’ve tried doing different file types like jpeg and gif and the same thing happens. Am i doing something stupid? November 26, 2006 at 9:15 pm #40912 drmikeMember There’s about a dozen thread on the topic already. Please let us know the filename and size so we can help you. The issue is normally due to one or the other. November 26, 2006 at 9:23 pm #40915 katy2484Member its header.gif and about 75k November 26, 2006 at 9:42 pm #40920 drmikeMember That sounds fine although 75k I believe is more towards the high side of what’s allowed. (Please remember that many folks are still on dial up.) I’ll send in a feedback and see if we can get staff involved with this. November 26, 2006 at 9:52 pm #40923 sunburntkamelMember i had mine look gray in the preview/crop page, but i saved it and it looked fine. but then, my image was already sized, so i didn’t need to see the image for cropping. November 26, 2006 at 9:53 pm #40924 drmikeMember It’s not animated, is it? I know the software is removing the animations. At least it was… November 26, 2006 at 9:56 pm #40926 sunburntkamelMember newp. it was the correct dimensions, and i had no crop handles, so i’m guessing they’re working on making it easier for people who’ve already cropped their image. November 26, 2006 at 9:56 pm #40927 katy2484Member i tried cropping it and all while it was gray but it still didn’t work, so i dunno November 26, 2006 at 10:03 pm #40930 drmikeMember By the way, what does the new header look like? I’m seeing the blury trees on your blog currently. November 26, 2006 at 10:15 pm #40935 katy2484Member lol, yeah that is one of my blogs. Its my second one i am trying to change http://absentmind.wordpress.com/ the new one has a bunch of yarn that I messed with on Jasc psp November 26, 2006 at 11:32 pm #40946 drmikeMember Yes, something’s strange on that since the picture isn’t even coming up manually. November 27, 2006 at 7:12 am #40968 andyMember katy2484, your header is fixed. Any other reports of this should be sent in as feedback as we are investigating the cause.
