Unable to upload photos

Hi
As of yesterday 1/12/2018 Iíve been unable to upload photos to my ongoing TR in the Asian forum.
I get as far as the orange ďuploadĒ button, then they all disappear. You will see I have been successfully adding photos throughout the report up until now. Nothing has changed at my end.

I have now tried four times to add the next lot of photos without success, and am very frustrated.

Ipad user on IOS 11.4 if that makes any difference.
Solution please.

Yes, that’s one. There were eight I think.

Okay, thanks. Some of them (not all) are mine. When I hit the upload button usually they’d appear in the posting box, then I would post quick reply. In this case the posting box would disappear and I’d be taken back to page one of the report. Weird, but will try again now.

So,I’ve tried twice now (figured it out myself) to upload photos from “my album” to a new post in my TR. Again, there is no post and page reverts to the beginning of the thread. Feel like abandoning it.

Must have something to do with iPads and the forum software . . I had no problem doing it in windows. I'll ask the techs to look at it.

Yeah, there’s several glitches when using iPads with fodors. Happy to tell you about them/help troubleshoot if you wish.

I’m using a new iPad on IOS 11.4 operating system. There are definitely problems. I hope you can fix it from your end.

Okay. One thing that drives me nuts is that when I try to edit commentary (before posting) my text disappears and I have to guess what to correct. Close the keypad, have another look, try to edit again, text disappears again, close keypad again....yada yada.
This is why the original post in my trip report has so many extra lines, I simply didn’t have time (at the airport) to remove all the extra lines. If you could fix that I’d be grateful (along with all the other iPad users I expect).

Be sure you are adding photos the correct way— use the little photo icon and follow the prompts!

There are many ways. This is the correct one.

what happens when you try to upload just one photo?

I don’t want to upload just one photo...my free time to post on Fodors is limited. I should be able to upload four or five at the same time.
Again today, I’m having issues up loading photos (yes, I’m using the photo icon). They’re in my album, but when I hit upload, the page returns to the beginning of the TR.

I use an iPad, and have no alternative. I see others report having problems using Fodors on iPad, it’s about time you ironed out the glitches. Frustrated here.

I have uploaded multiple photos to other sites by selecting multiple photos before clicking "upload." Does this work here?

I'm not asking you to change to one at a time, I'm asking you to help me find out what is wrong by trying to upload just one and telling me what happens.

The same thing happens trying to upload one photo, reverts to the first page of the report, no photo present.
