Tell us in more detail what you've done so far.

If it hasn't shown up as a thread, please confirm that you did hit the "Create New Thread" button when you'd gone through the "Upload Show" dialogue .....(!)

If it's not showing up on the tracker as a thread, it'll be kinda difficult for the moderators to diagnose it.....

Regards, Graham

Re: First Upload

When you create the new thread, you need to save the torrent file from that thread to the same location you created the original torrent file, overwriting it with the one from the thread. You should have got a prompt for this when you created the thread. You can do this now by clicking on the torrent file (in blue, at the foot of the first post in the thread). You should probably stop the torrent in uTorrent before you do this. Once the torrent file is saved, then open it with uTorrent to start seeding.

Which thread did you start? What's the title?

You might want to try creating the torrent file with uTorrent rather than Traders Little Helper....? But I'm not sure if this would cause the passcode error.



Regards, Graham

Re: First Upload

Here are the instructions for uploading (they are actually posted on the upload page):

Steps to Upload:
# Fill out information above
# Attach torrent file below

* Click on Upload Torrent button
* When window pops-up, Browse to torrent file
* Click on the Upload button
* After file is uploaded, click on Close This Window button

# Torrent file name will now appear in Attach Torrent box below
# Finally, hit the Submit New Thread button



You are getting to the step in bold, but forgetting the rest of them. You torrent is getting uploaded to the tracker, but you are forgetting to hit the Submit New Thread button on that main page.

Re: First Upload

Well, if you follow it the whole way through, then after you hit the Submit button, you should be in your newly created thread with a red box at the top that say to download the torrent file. Like this link here: http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...6225&torr=true

So, if you aren't ending up with that, what do you see after you hit the Submit New Thread button?

Re: First Upload

If you are being taken back to the same upload page, then one of two things is going on:

1) you have an error which is usually highlighted above the form - such as "No Fingerprints have been provided" or "No Artist has been provided", that type of thing. If this is the case, just provide the necessary info and hit Submit again.

OR

2) you put too much text into the text boxes in which case no error shows up. If this is the case, then just put a small amount of text in the text field, hit Submit, and then when you are taken to the new thread, hit the Edit button and add in the missing text.

Re: First Upload

Well, if you have a whole lot of fingerprint/checksum info, what you should do is in the fingerprint area write "checksums in next post" and then submit the form. Then, after the thread is uploaded, just paste them in the next post in the thread.
