I like the longer locks!

I like the longer locks! It's simple to change your photo. Go to your account and click the edit tab at the top. Click "delete picture" and submit. Then go back to the same place and click "Browse". Go to where you have your picture located on your computer and select it. Then submit the changes and you should have a new picture with those beautiful locks!

Let me know if you still have problems.

Still having problems removing and posting a new picture.

Hi Enrique,
I've deleted and deleted and deleted that older picture and it won't permanently go away. I've uploaded a new picture 6 or 7 times. Still not working. I've deleted the picture, logged out, logged back in and uploaded a new picture and the old one pops up again.Another picture from OctoberAnother picture from October

I got it to work

So this is what I did.
I deleted the picture. I uploiaded the new picture. I logged out of Artmetal, Quit Firefox, Used Safari, logged in and there was the new picture. Whew! That was a little complex. But it works now.

The problem you are having

The problem you are having is in the stored cache. No, not the cash or lack of it. There are two caches that can affect the display of your page. The first one you can control by going into your browser preferences and delete the stored cache, and restart your browser.

The other one you can not control. It is the cache that is handled by the artmetal.com site. This cache is only used for visitor (non logged in). It lasts 30 minutes before it is refreshed. That's why, when you post something new, it is not seen by visitors for a half hour.

Make sense?

On another note, you do know that you don't have to upload the image as you normally upload an image, right? All you do is edit your account and "Upload picture:" from there.

Cache control

There is something odd about Firefox and its cache though. I tried to delete the image many, many times over a period of two days or so. I never log out of Artmetal on Firefox, so I never saw the visitor's cache. Also, when I login on Safari, the recent posts are not the same as the recent posts on Firefox. I suppose that means that I need to log out every time I leave firefox so that my changes/posts take effect?

I loaded the pictures to the posts just to prove that the images were not corrupt or too large.

No, you shouldn't have to

No, you shouldn't have to log out to see your changes. I never do and the changes are shown immediately.
