    How do you post your photos so that they show up on the Freezing Saddles page?

    https://freezingsaddles.org/photos/

    I've tried #tagging on Instagram and posting through Strava but don't see any on there.

    Sorry if this has been asked/answered elsewhere but searching the forum for "photos" returned too many results and I couldn't find any instructions.

    Thanks!

    I don't know how the code works, but when I post one picture to my ride right away in Strava, and have photos set as the default display for my rides in Strava feeds, the picture appears on the Freezing Saddles photo page.

    You don't even have to post the pic right away. I went back to one of my rides on Strava from 24 hours ago and added a picture. When I refreshed the FS page, the picture showed. I assume it's chronological for the ride because the pic was somewhere in the middle.

    Pretty sure there's some sort of issue with the coding. My photos aren't showing up either (and my default display in Strava is photos). I've alerted Richard and I know the tech team is aware.

    I suspect this may be DrBullet's issue. If he's uploading the rides or adding photos to them some time after they occur, the photo may be rather far down in the FS page.

    Mine show up without any tagging, but it's usually only one per ride, and not necessarily the default (1st) Strava photo.

    It seems that there are some inconsistencies. I tend to add photos afterwards because my ride syncs directly through my phone so is posted on Strava before I can add anything. Any chance that it's an iPhone vs Android thing (I'm on Android)?
    Thanks again,

    Nigel

    I tend to add my photos later, too, although sometimes it's within minutes of posting the ride.
    I have scrolled through all the photos, and so far not a one of my photos has appeared on the photos page. Five of my Strava rides since Jan 1 have included photos.

    Glad to know it's not just me, @Steve. Are you an iPhone or Android user?

    So thereís a general picture page somewhere in the bowels of the Freezing Saddles Matrix where my pictures from strava are supposedly going?

    Iíve been having a few problems on my iPhone that Iíve been able to find ways to work around, but they work inconsistently and donít make sense. Iím not a programmer for one thing.

    1. I tried changing the settings in my profile, which was my first ďmistakeĒ.

    A. I tried WYSIWYG. That resulted in not being able to ďlikeĒ posts, an essential part of Calvin Ball.

    1. I tried going back to basic and standard, but now Iím having trouble posting pictures. Does anyone know what the default setting is for our forum? Basic or standard? The pictures will now only upload through a separate ďattachmentĒ page which seems buggy. For instance:

    a. My pictures are consistently posting UPSIDE DOWN. If I repost a few times Iíll eventually get one to post right side up without editing. Itís time-consuming and annoying. I guess the idea of an attachment page is to save your pictures to use later, but I think Iíd rather go back to just being able to post them one at a time without that page. Iím not sure. The upside down thing is especially weird and hard to correct since it has no consistency. Could it be when my phone takes a picture at a certain angle? If so, itís not showing that way in my phone or on Strava. Maybe iPhone corrects it and they understand, but FS does not?

    b. Iíll just stop here because I canít keep track of my own outline . . .

    OH, one more thing. Is the comment under your name i.e. regular member, cute member, new member, elite member, etc., randomly generated or is there a god-like OZ controlling those at some level? According to subject? Overall? More to the point, is there just a better way to win freezing saddles than riding and who do I see with my army of sunglass-wearing heroes?
