I tried attaching the files via IE. While the text fields and buttons rendered, and I was able to browse and select the two files, neither of the files actually got attached.

Are you getting this problem in the quick reply box or on edit? What version of Firefox? What OS and version of the OS? Do you have any notable add-ons installed? If you view page source are the input tags present and just not rendered, or are they missing entirely?

It's broken again. I've completely cleared the cache and still there are no text entry/browse buttons.

It's not really broken again because it was never really fixed. I been unable to reproduce this error for nearly a year, and fixing something I can't reproduce is somewhat difficult.

Can you link to the post you were attaching files to? Also, what type and size of file are we talking about?

If you can't reproduce it on your end then I am willing to let you remote into my computer so you can see for yourself and poke around a little.

You say it was broken, then it was fixed, and now it's broken again. But no changes were made since the beginning, so it is mostly something on your end. If clearing your cache does not fix the issue, then please try disabling all Firefox extensions and plug-ins. Sometimes third-party plugins are poorly written and tend to go a lil rogue.

It happened with me too. I also informed you but you ignored the post. Then some time ago it was working and now its not working again.

The file sizes were 1,351,013 bytes and 304,896 bytes. They were chm files.

@dani - I don't know if it was ever fixed. It was quite a while ago and I very seldom have to attach files. I did try disabling Ad-Block. It didn't help. I'll try the others. This seems vaguely familiar and I don't recall it helping but I'll give it a try.

The file sizes were 1,351,013 bytes and 304,896 bytes.

1MB is the size limit for attachments, so the first one is too big.

They were chm files.

And chm isn't a supported upload type. Try zipping those files and uploading the archive. It looks like the problem with the files not uploading in IE was simple lack of support, though I'm a little concerned that the errors weren't showing up. We definitely trap attachment errors and list them on the page.

I'm getting consistent results now. When I disable Ghostery, the text/browse controls render properly. When I enable Ghostery they don't render at all. I don't know why this happens but I'll play with the Ghostery settings to see if I can narrow it down.

I decided to just add Daniweb to the Ghostery whitelist. Now that I'm getting the controls rendered I am also now seeing that chm files are not allowed so I zipped and attached, but the zip file didn't get uploaded.

What is the maximum allowable size for uploading files? Is this a per attachment limit or is it a per post limit?

When the error message (finally) comes up, perhaps it could specify what the maximum size is. On a slower connection could we possibly get some indication that the upload is in progress? Otherwise the poster might (like me) just assume the attachment process is broken.

What is the maximum allowable size for uploading files? Is this a per attachment limit or is it a per post limit?

1MB, per attachment.

When the error message (finally) comes up, perhaps it could specify what the maximum size is.

Noted. I'll have to see what's actually included in the error messages.

It's a per-attachment size limit.

There are two reasons that we don't have a progress bar for the uploader:

  1. Way too much effort than it's worth, IMO, and it's a lot of Javascript overhead for something almost exclusively used to upload really small images from time to time.
  2. I want to discourage uploading large files (I have to pay for storage space, bandwidth, and big attachments means lots of people constantly downloading large files). Attachments are rarely used and, when they are, it's mostly for small images. If we made it into an overly complicated progress bar setup, it might subliminally encourage the uploading of larger files.

While we're on the subject: I also reported a bug that I can't upload screenshots from my PC because it says "it exceeds max width * height". Please add the max W*H along width the max filesize to the errormessage.

How big was the screenshot?

I'll certainly keep that in mind for future posts. I'll keep screenshots small. Based on that, perhaps Nick Evan might want to resize that screen image before posting.

I don't know what the above link has to do with this thread but because my issue was resolved then I'm going to mark this thread as done.
