Varanasi 4

by Michael Mcmulkin March. 17, 2017 895 views

Eventually managing to drag myself away from the banks of Ganga, ( we returned time and time again to allow the spirituality of the river to flow over us), we explored more of the streets and the area around Varanasi. Varanasi 1 is here,    Varanasi 2 is here, Varanasi 3 is here.

Local Character!

The local flower market. This place was a riot of color and so fascinating watching the deals being struck!

Hi Shimna

Thank you for your kind words. Thank you so much for your help with putting in links , that makes it great to link the posts. I did not mean to have so many posts but I was having a lot of problems with the site. It was very slow, it would not allow me to put in text between pictures and if I had to backspace out an error in the text I continued to backspace and wipe out all the text. Have you had any problems recently, I am on an Apple iPad and a Apple MacBook.

Uncle glad to hear that I was of some help to you.
I too faced problems with uploading many images at a time and adding and sometimes had to delete the whole post and start over. Might be because of the large size of the images. I use a lenovo desktop or HP laptop to make the posts.
Do you mind posting this issue in the community where we have the discussions going on about the new release of Photoblog 2.0 and about posting issues. It will help Ram and others related to check on this and sort it out.

Hello Shimna

Thank you for your reply, at least I am not alone in having a few problems! 😊 I will try and summarize the issues and put them on the community board. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Hi Uncle,
bit busy with company auditing and stuff.
I have always had trouble with publishing draft posts as it doesn't show up in the fresh feeds. I have been following up with Ram on this. If you are facing such problems kindly post it in the community discussions as well. I hope this issues will get solved once the new PhotoBlog 2.0 version is released.

Hi Shimna

Most of my problems seem to be with the site being slow. I have noticed there is a warning if the picture is not the right resolution so I am watching for those now. I am still struggling to write text between each photograph if I post more than one photo. Thank you for your message.

Uncle I have had problems with the site when I try to upload say more than 5-6 photos and then it keeps on hanging or say that uploading might take a while and to not close the browser. I guess it is either the site is slow, may be my internet connection is slow or else the photos are large in size. So I try posting in parts :)

Hi Shimna

Thank your for your message. I think you are right, I have been putting just a maximum of five photographs on my posts now, which is fine. I am stil not able to type any text between photographs but I think that might be me not doing something to make that happen. Thank you again for taking the time to message me. Have a marvelous Monday.

I just wanted to try writing more text in between the photos and in my post https://www.photoblog.com/silentgaze/2017/03/20/a-walk-through-souk-al-manzil/ I was able to do that. I did not face any difficulties this time and moreover I posted around 8 photos as well.
Do you upload all photos and then write the contents or do you upload and write one by one? Just wanted to check.

Anyway thank you for your wishes and I hope you have a great day ahead too :)

Hello Shimna

Thank you for your advice on loading to the site. I posted Varanasi 5 last night and all was working well. I was able to put in text and the site was moving quite fast. Hopefully things have settled down now. I hope you have a peaceful and happy Tuesday.
