I'm currently unable to use the image uploader. When I press the "Upload image icon", I'm able to select or drag & drop an image from my computer. The image then successfully previews in the uploading interface. However, when clicking the Add Picture button, I get the error message:

Request returned an error [error]


I've had this problem for the last day. Before that, I occasionally had another image uploading error which was remedied by disabling "antivirus/security" extensions in Chrome. I did so for this new issue also, but then discovered that I had the same problem in Safari where I have no extensions at all.

My cookie settings in both browsers are set to Allow from current website only.

  • Do the developer tools show a 503 or other error? – DavidPostill May 7 '17 at 15:08
  • @DavidPostill The error seems to have gone away now, and I can upload images again, even using Chrome which is the browser I use with a few "antivirus/security" extensions. If the problem reoccurs, I will try to check developer tools for more information. (I'm presuming that even though I no longer have issues, doesn't mean that the question is "solved" from a SE community perspective). – Winterflags May 7 '17 at 17:07
  • There have been many similar complaints over the last week or so. It appears to be an intermittent error. – DavidPostill May 7 '17 at 17:25
