Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper June 2019 challenge


Regarding problems with Linky Tools

Update - I've received this from Brent at Linky Tools:

Here's the issue... the site has over 18K old users with 9+ MILLION old image files. So it is really bogging the system down. I am in the process of spring cleaning the old users and files. I have no idea how long it will take (a few days) and I apologize for whatever inconvenience and aggravation it causes. I'm working hard to resolve it. Linky Tools has run very smoothly for many years... I hope to have this cleared up as fast as possible.

It seems to be OK now ... hope you can add your entries.

  7. If my card doesn't qualify, I understand. Last week we had a blog hop and the hop went live at a certain time and I forgot to post my card the next morning. I am just now realizing looking at all the cards posted that I forgot mine. I have posted it but understand if it gets disqualified.
    Blessings,
    Shirley Gentry

    1. I went to the blog to enter your link, but Linky Tools is telling me it already exists, so you must have been successful. No sure why there's been trouble, but I was trying to enter a card I'd made into some challenges using Linky Tools and it timed out and then after a while I was able to link with no trouble. xx

  10. Hi Hazel thanks for the challenge. I have tried 5 times from my tablet and phone to add my link but it keeps timing out? This is my link if you could kindly try to enter it for me. Thanks! xx https://jane-janesjournal.blogspot.com/2019/06/flowers-in-june.html

  11. Hi Hazel. I'm having trouble getting my card to link. I keep getting error messages. I've just refreshed this page and it isn't showing so I'm assuming it hasn't worked. This is the link to my card:

    1. I've just tried a couple of the suggestions below and neither worked for me. I have the same problem using "Auto Crop" and also using a different browzer.

    2. Linky tools are working on it ... some blogs seem to be able to add entries now, but I just tried to add yours and failed - I'll try again later. As explained at the top of the blogpost, Linky tools are aware of the problems and seeking to put it right as fast as they can. xx

  12. Weird!! Not sure what happened to my photo on entry #403. The link-up was acting balky when I was trying to upload my card here. Now I don't seem to be able to delete that entry and try again. Hazel, if you will delete it, I will re-enter. Thanks!

  13. Hi, Hazel....I tried a different browser to see it that would help on the second card that the link-up tool was stumbling over. No difference...another black hole. At least clicking on the black hole sends you to the correct blog post. So just leave them like that, I guess. My computer doesn't always play well with others and has often labored when loading your challenge blog link up. I have an idea that the Linky Tools and my computer have a new incompatibility...perhaps a recent update that doesn't work on my computer anymore. Maybe it will eventually be corrected.
    Sorry for the problems.

  16. I've just tried to add Suze's entry and haven't been successful and have tried to add entries from my own blog to other challenges and am getting an error message. I've reported it and am waiting for an answer. x

  17. I've been having trouble with Mr Linky. I've been choosing AUTO CROP instead of choosing to crop
    myself, and that seems to work.

    1. That's interwesting, Deanne - I tried that, but it didn't work for me. x

  18. Hazel I also could not add my last cards. I also just tried to add my card to the July challenge and could not. The same thing happened on another blog challenge that uses the same linky as this one.
