    Okay I’m stuck – I can see the monthly challenge but I don’t see the actual gallery for the cards uploaded. Where do I find them? Also are we able to comment on photos the way we used to do? I am quite puzzled as I don’t see anything more than card that Cat uploaded and her challenge instructions.

    Hi Johanna, it looks like you go to the Forum to the Challenges then to the January 2018 Monthly Mix Challenge started by Gina, then click here to play which takes us to Cat’s challenge and then find the ADD YOUR CARD and you can see the cards entered. Whew! I’m tired. I don’t have a blog so I’m wondering if I just attach a link to my card in my computer file folder? You can view but there is no comments on the cards but you can comment on Cat’s post.When I clicked on the photo’s name it takes you to their blog. Hope this helps.

    Gayle, you can not link to your photo in a file on your laptop/phone. It must live on the internet somewhere. Hence the need to create a blog. If you have set your photo up at Word Press (which it appears both you two have), and would like to create your own blog, I would suggest this to be as good as anywhere to dive in. Here is a cheat sheet on getting set up: Get going fast with Word Press

    Thanks for the information, Bonnie. My photo popped from by Google account. I’ll have to try to figure this out.

    You can add your photo here and then add it to the challenge InLinkz. https://www.ginakdesigns.com/album/community-photos/

    That’s great news about adding to the community page then to the challenge. I went to the old site and added there then to the challenge but I know the old site will be disappearing. Thanks so much, Gina, I wasn’t really interested in setting up a blog….just trying to keep my hobby simple which is why I love everything Gina K and the stamping community and friends here.

    Yes, keep it simple and fun! The gallery will work for entries. If we change the gallery at some point, we will let you know so you all can save your photos to your computer. (Although, that’s probably where they came from, haha!)

    I am still not able to add a photo to the gallery much less enter the challenge. What am I doing wrong? I can upload to my page but it just sits there saying waiting approval. If I right click that photo and copy photo url, that url will not paste into the InLinkz.

    I had the same problem when I downloaded a photo for the challenge. The photo is still pending approval after several days. I just entered the January challenge by using my blog url. Also, will we be able to comment on photos in the gallery? I too would like to know what I’m doing wrong in downloading a photo.

    I posted a card on 12/30 for the December challenge and it’s still pending approval. I guess there are some behind the scenes issues with the gallery area. Fortunately I also posted it to the old site so it could be included for the challenge. Haven’t had time to make a card for this month’s challenge.

    It looks like you can use your facebook as a link back to your photo I have instagram and just used that for my first card in the challenge. However I was hoping to use a link from here but like you all have said once you upload then it sits waiting approval Sorry to say this but that really stinks. Hope someone explains that to us soon.

    Sue, we are monitoring all photos at this time. Since the site is new, there has been a lot of spam and porn uploaded for some reason. We will not allow anything like that on the site so we are moderating at this time.

    I can see from other posts that this is an ongoing problem. I made a card for the January Challenge “Sentiment Only”. After much back and forth and back and forth, I finally got my picture uploaded to the gallery here. From there it said I have to wait for the upload to be approved so I can copy the link and attach to the challenge post. I uploaded my picture 2 days ago and it still says “pending approval”. I would assume it does take a while for someone to go over all the uploads, but I’m just wondering, how long do you usually have to wait for any uploaded pictures to be approved? Thanks for your help
