Images not uploading to gallery

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to Squarespace and am wondering why my images are failing to upload. Sometimes I need to try 4-5 times before the image actually uploads. For reference, the images are png thumbnails around 25 kb each. When I save and leave the page, return, or refresh, the places where the images should be appear as gaps on my page. Any reason why this happens? Do I keep attempting to upload over and over again until it succeeds? Thank you. Further note, I have blurred the content not relevant to this post as my website has not yet launched. Cheers.

The number one reason images fail to upload is while they are going up if you chose  any other  tab, like design it will make the upload quit with an error notice sometimes,  but usually no notice. It just isn't there. So when uploading don't choose any other options. Slow internet speed causes failure to upload. We have a lot of that going on right now. Upload one at a time, don't drag too many into the box, makes things too slow, one may load the others fail.

I am having similar trouble. I have resized my jpg down to under 3MB and have tried to upload to a gallery countless times. The files fail. I have tried new galleries, new pages, and everything else I can think of. All of them fail. I have attached one of them here, which shows they can indeed upload to Squarespace, just not my site.

I am having a loading image issue of my own, hopefully someone here can help as I’ve not heard back from Squarespace. 
 

I’m currently building my second website on squarespace and the first one I had no problems at all. This time round as I go to add an image to the background on home page, it comes up with this;

’Unable to find component with type, Ensure you are providing... asseruploader’

I didn't have any upload issues until just a couple weeks ago. My internet connection isn't the problem, I have 1 gig down and up. Using Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge with no plugins. When I add images to my galleries, the upload fails, or it finishes, and the page automatically refreshes but doesn't seem to save the files. I've even tried deleting galleries, and re-creating them and their content, which seems to be okay at first, until I add images at a later date. Tonight, I wanted to add 6 images to one gallery, no luck and have tried over and over. Sometimes when the browser refreshes after the upload, and it fails to save, the browser displays an error message stating it has run out of memory. This is extremely frustrating, especially when creating a photography website as a portfolio and web-sales. I dunno... Help!

Hi, 
I have the same problem. I am new to Squarespace and it is not possible to upload ANY images, nor my logo or anything. I can only use the photos from their stock. It is really annoying as I am already paying but can't publish my website because I can not upload images. Anyone has a solution for this? 

Thank you lots!

I found that if I try dropping an image in where I want it to go, it doesn't upload. But if I add my new image to the last position (you will see a square with a dotted line as a border), it loads in seconds! From there you can position it wherever you like. And yes, drag and drop works best.
