    Anyone had issues with a preview showing on their resource this morning? I posted a resource about 45 mins ago and there's still no preview on it...

    Yes - I have some resources that are not showing previews.

    I've noticed that the previews sometimes take up to a couple of days to appear, and others disappear after a while. The background colour of one mysteriously changed from white to black after a couple of weeks.

    Thanks - will have to keep my eye on them.

    It does always seem quite erratic. I noticed that in some search results the cover images don't appear and yet they're fine on the resource page and other places.

    Do I have to upload a cover image to get a preview? Or does it still just pull through the first page of the first file you upload? (I'm fine with the second option).

    There's a new thingy now which should allow you to upload just a cover file. I haven't tried it to see if it effectively replaces the first preview but I assume that's what it's supposed to do.

    If you choose not to upload a specific cover image it does still work in the old way (pulling an image from the first file).

    Exactly the same thing happening to me. I tried waiting a day, then uploaded it again. No preview!

    I tried deleting and uploading - still no joy :(
