unable to upload pic for blog 2 Years, 6 Months ago  
hi, i am unable to upload a photo for my blog. i click on images & documents but then the "browse" button (which is in a darkened rectangle) doesn't do anything, under the "browse" is an icon of a folder with a green arrow. neither the "browse" nor the folder takes me into my pc to see my files & select my picture.
any ideas as to what is happening?

Ok hours later.... i see next to the "browse" rectangle, is "upload", so i click "upload" Then another Browse, where i get my file, then another "upload" and for a few seconds it appears that it is uploading.... but then NOTHING!
i also cant make my post via copy & paste. i can get it it there, but i can't do ANYTHING to it except use the "backspace" to erase
and when it tried to save it it went blank.
i redid everything more than once, opening & closing the page att to no avail.

so after 4 hours here i have accomplised nothing. my pc is very sluggish at this site... sigh i guess it was not meant to be.

Hi Dianne

Sorry for the delay answering your post. The issues you describe are normally related to the type of browser being used, Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) is one of the worst culprits! For some reason, IE8 will only work in 'Compatibility Mode' on a lot of sites, and even then, not always.

Other reasons for these problems can be how your computer is set up, whether it is up to date with components/software like Java, and even the type of anti-virus software you are using, and the way it is configured. Some anti-virus software is very invasive, for example, things like 'link checker' settings can have a significant affect on how your browser works.

Anyway, we only use Firefox for general work/surfing, but I always test our sites with all the major browsers, IE8, Safari, Google Chrome, Opera and Seamonkey. Generally, when I get messages relating to site issues, they are mostly caused by IE8, Safari and Google Chrome (which is actually Safari with a different name).

As a test, if you could try a different browser to see what happens would be the first step I would take, if that doesn't help, let me know!

Regards, Joe

I just found this thread but I find that the easiest way is to write the whole post elsewhere with pictures and copy/paste the whole post into the blog box.

This is a quick and easy fix that works perfectly in IE

Hope that helps

Firefox is usually a good fix for all that ails IE I switch between the two of them which usually means that if there is a problem in one it is ok in the other. This goes for all sorts of sites not just TAS.
