I have I have tried to upload a picture twice and have had the same error happen both times.

After sitting for a little bit waiting for the image to upload a message pops up saying that for security reasons frames are not allowed. After hitting OK, the stackexchange site brings up an error message saying something went wrong and it has been reported to the developers and to report any details here.

Let me know if there are any other details that would be helpful to provide.

Note, I was able to get the images to upload after compressing them. Not sure if it is related or not.

  • Do you still have the error page open? If you look at the source, the message is usually present, but commented out. Mar 16, 2012 at 0:19
  • No, I have closed the error page. I can see if I can reproduce it though.

  • How large were the images you originally tried to upload? Mar 18, 2012 at 8:13
  • @JarrodDixon It was straight from the camera... maybe 6MB or so. I don't have the files with me now, but can verify later on.

  • @JarrodDixon Any update on whether this is an issue or something localized at Kellenjb's end? Please mark it [status-whatever] as it fits :) Apr 9, 2012 at 18:02

Depending on your internet connection, uploading pictures this large would probably time out on our side.

Your fix for compressing the images is the proper course of action.

  • Possibly add a better error message for something like this? I have an above average connection and it is foreseeable that others would try to upload images directly from their cameras.

  • We're going to look at using some newer browser capabilities for uploads soon, which should allow for better error handling. Apr 10, 2012 at 0:13
