HELP Can't upload important TNFSSE file to the wiki!

Postby Peelster1 » 09 Dec 2010, 17:29

I have images of the tracks of the Burnt Sienna and Transtropolis course. Currently on the wiki the images are screenshots of gameplay. I just made my account here today and have no idea what I'm doing. When I try to upload and replace the current image I get the following message.

"Upload warning
The file is corrupt or has an incorrect extension. Please check the file and upload again."

I know that the file isn't corrupt and I've tried every image extension possible.

I have a huge feeling that this isn't where I'm supposed to be posting this, but I posted it here because it's related to TNFSSE and I couldn't find the board for the wiki. If someone could move this there and/or help me out that would be really great.

Could you attach the images here and I'll check out what's wrong?

I uploaded them in png format but if you need a different file type just let me know. If you would rather have me use IMG codes then I can do that as well. Sorry for posting twice in a row but it looks like I can't attach multiple images in a post. (Some boards get on your case for that.) This post will have Burnt Sienna and the next one will have Transtropolis.

Anyway, for all I know I just don't understand the instructions for uploading an image to the wiki.

Here is an example of what I'm doing, 1st I go to http://wiki.nfsunlimited.net/index.php?title=Special:Upload&wpDestFile=TNFSSE_Track-_Burnt_Sienna.gif. Then I click the browse button and upload the image. I type in my summary and click Upload File. I shouldn't need to do anything else, correct?

The problem is that you're trying to upload a png image into a gif filename.
Simply go here http://wiki.nfsunlimited.net/wiki/Special:Upload and upload it as it is. Then just use the new image in the article (links will be available once you upload).
