I'm having a heck of a time with this format posting a new ad. Now my internet is awful, like 7 at best so I get that but I had no problem uploading images on another site. I have 12 images but the file sizes are small , averaging around 0.1MB. Once I enter the content and choose all the images, then click "continue" I get the "Please Wait" with the orange wheel going around and around for as long as 2 hours before I just have to give up. The other problem is that you cannot paste copy into the ad body so if I have to start over I have to retype the whole ad which is very frustrating. Not sure why you can't allow pasting from Word or other text editors!

Don’t put 12 up at once

Do one then finish

Then ad them as you see how fast they go

Alright so I tried one 0.2MB file, just one, and yes I do see the orange progress bar advance so that's a change but it gets to about 90% of the way then stops and once again it's the orange wheel going round and round forever with nothing happening. So again, I was able to upload the same files to another site without difficulty despite my slow internet. Is it a browser problem? I am using Chrome with Windows 10. I checked settings. Don't see anything unusual there. Do I need to use IE or something else? 
The other thing that would REALLY help while I am sorting this is any tip to stopping this endless loop without having to completely reload the page and start over with retyping the whole ad! (30 minutes of typing each time!!)

So I did have a little better luck with Microsoft Edge, but I eventually had to downsize my files to 80kb or less! That is the only way they would upload at all. Overall the process is much more sluggish it seems with this "new" format, in my opinion.
Thanks
