You have two complete manuals there to upload the photos.
If you can not, it is probable that it is a mistake to use the forum via a mobile. Try doing it with a tablet or computer.

There may be another reason that you cannot upload.  But this Reason will normally not affect any new member.  If you have been a very active member and you have been uploading hundreds of pictures, it could be that you have exceeded your allotted maximum storage space on the StrainHunter's Server.


It has been my experience that if you DO exceed the maximum storage space allotted to you, you will NOT receive any warning.  Rather, the Image-Upload-Tool (the Paperclip-Symbol) will simply disappear from your Text-Editor.


Here is how to check how much space is allotted to you, and to see whether you have exceeded that allotment:

1.  At the top-right of nearly any Forum page, find your AvatarName next to the Notification Bell.  Click on your AvatarName.

2.  That will open a drop-down menu.  Click on "My Attachments".

3.  On this page you can see a bar representing the maximum storage space alloted to you, and the unused space still available to you.


If you determine that you need more free-space for future journals, PLEASE DO NOT simply begin to delete images directly from the list below the Allotment Bar.  If you do this, then your postings that used those images will simply lose those images, and the result will be that the threads that you had posted into will become senseless.  It will cause your affecting Postings to seem as if you are talking about pictures that are not visible or that you didn't know how to upload pictures.


A better solution is that you could Message "Admin" and request that more space be allotted to you.  I cannot promise that your request will be granted, but I am happy to report that my request for more storage space WAS GRANTED.  So, it iS possible.


Otherwise, your next choice would be to explore your oldest Topics that contain images, and if you determine that the Thread is no longer important, no longer relevant, you can request a Moderator to delete the entire Thread.  Only Moderators and higher Staffers can delete entire Threads.

After the Thread has been deleted, NOW you can return to "My Atachments" and review your List of Images to find those "unused, unassigned" images and delete them without destroying the flow of the Threads.  Only then will your space become available for future uploads.


If you do not want to delete the images stored on the StrainHunters Server, then another possible solution is to use the services of an outside cloud-image-service as described by our friend "Fuzzy", seen in the link below.  However, keep in mind, that if the outside cloud-image-service ceases to function or if you delete your images from that cloud-image-service, the posting will similarly suffer blank holes where your pictures no longer appear.


Contacting "Admin" to request more storage space remains the best solution.



I hope this helps.


Your Forum friend, Cannabissapean

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
