Is anybody else having issues uploading again? I’m getting the pink bar again, can’t upload new projects, and am not sure what to do.

      The issue still persists today. Are there any solutions for the pink bar issue yet?

      Is there an ETA on when the problem will be fixed? I am still not able to upload anything. :-(

    I’m getting the pink bar and it won’t let me save (as draft or otherwise), the only option I get is ‘Cancel’.

    I tried to update update my profile and got a server error … related problem, perhaps?

    29th November. I’ve come back to upload projects following the issue with the darkened images only to find the dreaded pink bar again! When will it be sorted, please?

    Pink bar for me. Restarted posting the new project (copied and pasted my three paragraphs I’d written about my project) and it’s done it again.

    Having the same problem (again) on a tablet. :( The problem seems to come and go, managed to upload one project but it’s sabotaging another. :/

    This blasted pink bar just won’t go away! Success in posting a couple of projects, then sabotage as that bar re-appears. Come on people – FIX IT!

      I just try again and again until it does load the photo. odd but finally works. I save as draft each time 1 photo loads successfully to save it too.

    not sure if anyone else is still experiencing it, but I’ve been trying to upload new projects since last night (Dec 29) and up to this morning (Dec 30) I haven’t been able to upload one single picture… I always get the pink bar. last time I experienced this about 2 weeks ago I only got one or two pink bars, and still managed to load most of the pics at once. now I’m beginning to lose hope. :(

    just thought I would put an update here that I finally succeeded in uploading the pictures after almost 24 hours (uploading them took me longer than sewing the projects, LOL).

    I also thought I would share the trick that finally helped me get through it (mind you, I use Google Chrome): every time the pink bar showed up, I right-clicked the pink bar and chose “reload frame” (NOT “reload” as this would reload the whole page), and did this as many times as needed until I finally saw my picture thumbnail. and then after every picture was successfully uploaded so that the thumbnail showed correctly = no pink bar, I checked the “I certify…” and clicked “Save as Draft” or “Update”. if it was my first picture for a project, then I first had to save it as a draft, if it was already my second picture, then the button changed to “Update”.

    note that it’s important to have the “I certify…” option checked every time you’re saving it as darft/updating it, otherwise it won’t save your latest picture that you have painstakingly uploaded.

    that should do the trick, at least if you’re also using Google Chrome. :) good luck!

      This didn’t work for me. You may have just been lucky! How many times did you have to reload the frame?

    Using google chrome, and it hasn’t worked for me either (yet). Officially giving up. Agree with Mary, it’s a pain to have to redo everything every time. I will try again much much later.

    @Mary Athey, yeah I don’t think it would work from phones. :( So sorry to hear that.

    @Denim Skirts Etc, oh gosh, I don’t even remember how many times.. just repeatedly right-clicking the pink bar whenever it appears, and as soon as it took a bit longer to load I knew the picture finally got uploaded. sometimes I got it on the third try, sometimes on the twentieth. :( once the picture was uploaded, the “Save as Draft” or “Update” button on the bottom would work again. the whole process (ever since I got to know the trick) probably took about half an hour for each project (that was 5 pics to one sewing project). it took a LOT of patience, and I nearly threw my mouse to the monitor out of frustration. :p but in the end I hung in there and, like you said, I guess I got lucky?

    @joelle1112, when I first wrote the stuffs in the description field etc., I then copied all of them to a notepad or whatever writing program was available, so I won’t have to re-write them in case the uploading never worked. and then I started doing the right-clicking, over and over again, and once I got at least one picture uploaded successfully, the “Save as Draft” button would be available again, so I was able to save it. afterwards, I just kept going back to the “Edit” page, right-click the pink bar all over again until I was finally able to upload all the pics I wanted to post. yes, it took ages, and I went web surfing at the same time so I won’t get too stressed. :p I was just so determined to make it work, and so I kept going on.

    well, I really do hope someone at Burda Style is doing something right now to get this bug fixed! :( such a shame that this trick haven’t worked yet for anyone else, not to mention all the hassles we all have to go through just to upload one picture!

      Got it! Thanks—I’d previously refreshed the page, but it is a big help to just refresh the frame. : )

      I eventually got it to work. I’ll remember to keep going for 20 frames in future to get at least one! Good tip about the save as draft button appearing. I noticed that I could only press cancel.
