    Upload Problem

    Hi All,

    I'm kinda new to joomla, dipped my toe in before, but only briefly, but do have a few years of web design, programing in PHP, ASP, etc...

    I've just completed a fresh install of edugeek 1.5 and am having problems uploading images.

    This is a fresh, clean install no other extensions added, the only change I've made is to disable the flash uploading from the global configuration as suggested in another thread.

    When I click the [image] link at the bottom of an article, the lightbox opens, but is plain white with it's black border and close button... nothing else.

    I have included a screenshot here



    I am working on MacOSX 10.5.8, and am having this issue in both Safari & Firefox, unable to test in ie/win until tomorrow. I will provide an update then.

    Any help you can give me would really be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Dave

    AFAIR - the built-in image upload function was flakeware/very cumbersome/naff so I just don't use it at all.

    Its the biggest fault with Joomla IMHO.

    This means using another editor (either JCE or the one I use - JoomlaFCK) and/or a separate file uploader

    I use JFU - works great and does easy multiple file uploads but has 3MB limit in free version and I think it works in a bit non-standard way.

    And I've recently discovered jsmallfib as a very nice single file uploader.

    Unfortunately all this means learning how to set them up but we're here to help

    regards

    Simon

    Update: Issue is still the same on win/ie, win/FF, win/safari, win/opera, ubuntu/FF, ubuntu/opera

    @ SimpleSi

    Thanks for that... you've given me a couple of things to check. I'll look into them, and post my results back here for anyone else who may experience the same problem, although I think I may need to refer back to the community for implementing them... I'll see how I get on.

    I've just installed the JoomlaFCK plug-in, quite easy to do, fairly straight-forward (apart from a max execution time exceeded problem).

    All working now.

    Thanks again SimpleSi

    Have you tried disabling the Flash Uploader in Global Config>Settings (bottom of page)?
    This is what I had to do

    Yes, I've tried that, but still didn't work.
