    As the title suggests...

    I can't upload anything. It results in the following not-so-helpful error:
    SWFFailure.jpg

    The only common theme between multiple errors is that all of the file names included capital letters.
    Otherwise, there were many differences (symbols, capital "JPEG", mixed "Jpeg" "jPEG", "jpeg", etc).

    Hmm, that really is quite unhelpful. I'll see if I can find it in a log. Did you try multiple images?

    Yea, I tried 4(?) different images.
    Should have been between 5 and 15 minutes prior to my post here.

    I had the same problem. I tried big images, small images, sub-50kb images, no dice. I eventually just gave up and went the photobucket route, but it would be nice if it would work and save the time of going through photobucket every time I want to upload a pic.

    Yeah, we definitely need to get this worked out. It may be a permission issue if both of you are having a hard time.

    Tried approximately 10 more images, with varying file names and naming schemes (numbers, capital letters, lowercase letters, different file types, etc).

    ...Same error, every time.

    Ah well, we'll get this figured out. Which browsers are you using?

    Thanks!

    ...I hadn't considered that it may be a browser issue. I'm running Chrome v. 17.0.963.56

    I'm still unable to upload any pngs, jpegs, bmps, gifs, etc; whether I'm using IE or Chrome.
    The latest failure was with the following image:
    [​IMG]
    ...Nothing special. Just a jpeg with standard file name formatting, albeit a little long. ("bench_model_stage8_800.jpg")

    Nope...
    Not working.
    (5 tries with different files, different naming schemes, different file sizes, and different image sizes.)

    So I think the 'insert image' button/function works, and it's the "Upload a File" button below the reply box that isn't working. I'm still looking into this. Wanna give it a go Dennis?
