I have tried several times to post replies to the topic "Please share your snow / ice Photos …". with attached photo. Every time my post ends up with an empty window. I have tried both Safari, Opera, and Firefox - all with the same result.
Some weeks ago i succeeded in posting a landscape photo. But this time it will not work. Need help.

Are you trying to attach a photo via the upload feature, or trying to embed a photo hosted on another web page?

I'm using the upload feature, from own files on my Mac.

Is the file <4 MB and in an appropriate file format (JPG, usually)?  I've not had any problems attaching images, from multiple Macs running various versions of OS X.

You get a blank white box?  Would you mind trying to post the image here?

Can you just leave the post up?  Or are you saying that after you attach the image and click Post, the page fails to load?

It seems like loading - a rotating small figure upper left. After half a minute the blank side appears.
Also received error message: "You have already submitted this post! You must accidentally have doble clicked or tried to refreshthe page" I have left i open for up to ten minutes or more. Have I been too impatient?

Not sure...  Perhaps try reducing the size of the image to 750-800 pixels wide.

Thanks for good help!
I was perhaps mislead by the small file size, due to all the white pixels.
