Issue when uploading photos

Tue Jun 12, 2018 12:02 pm

Hi, I wasn't able to find anything about in the forums so I start a new thread. I was trying to upload a photo today which depicts a Fiat G-46-4A trainer aircraft preserved in a Museum in Italy. Searching in the manufacturer menu I regularly found FIAT, but I wasn't able to find the Generic Type "G-46" and, consequently, the Version. So I decided to add them manually: I wrote Fiat G-46 in the Generic Type field and Fiat G-46-4A in the Version field, I've added the other details and clicked on the upload button. The result was an error message just over the Generic Type and Version fields in which I was told that the "value already exists", I made another search, and another again, but I wasn't able to find the Generic Type/Version in the menu. The only way to let the upload go was to leave out the word Fiat in both fields. Am I making something wrong or might it be a bug? Thank you!
Carlo

Hi Carlo,

- Aircraft Manufacturer Filter Enabled? --> tick "no".
- Type "Fiat" in the generic type field --> select "Fiat G-46".
- Select the correct version from the dropdown menu.
