Ready To Start?
You may have noticed it doesn’t always work every time as expected. Some times it can be a challenge to get a photo or meme to post successfully. When this happens, it’s usually because of one of only three tiny technical glitches holding up things. Once you become familiar with these glitches, you can quickly spot & remedy them:
Disqus limits photo image file sizes to 5MB each or less. Anything larger & your photo won’t load. You’ll receive a more than obvious message if your file size is too large.
Pay attention & check your photo image file sizes before posting. Use smaller sized photo image files less than 5MB so you don’t encounter this snag.
In the Digital World, there are many different types of FILE FORMATS for photo & video files; however, Disqus only loads & accepts three specific format types: .jpg, .gif & .png.
Disqus will also warn you whenever you try to load an unacceptable image file format:
You don’t need to bother knowing what the format abbreviations stand for or what they mean. That’s covered in another tutorial: Different Image File Formats In Disqus. For now, you only need to remember the .jpg (or also .jpeg) format is by far the most widely used image file format on the Internet. Probably 90% of all the still photo digital image files there are formatted in .jpg.
Some times, specific functions on your web browser page window will break down & stop working properly with too frequent & higher than normal usage without regular page refreshes.
One of those specific functions which can first stop working on an overused webpage is your ability to drag & drop photo image files into open Disqus comment windows. When you drag & drop, nothing happens…absolutely nothing.
The comment window remains blank as ever because the photo image file won’t load or display. When this happens, your web browser page has broken down & jammed up.
Now you can immediately SPOT & FIX the three most common glitches which stop people from posting photos or memes on the internet. Smooth sailing ahead, Sailor!
Remember to always get the most from your post.
