Hi,

it seems it's "SWFUpload" problem. After uploading newer version of "SWFUpload" I have now other problem - "Files&Images" module working, but "Insert image" on rightside not working (when I click "create folder" or "upload" link, system forward me from cms to website).

Maybe i should change somethin in SWFUpload .js or .swf files code?

Hi,

I have the same behaviour after uploading newer version of SWFUpload ...

... in my opinion this SWFUpload-Stuff works - if it works - very smart - but not really reliable in different environments ...

Cheers Roland

@Stempy:

I think your problem is more a cache problem. Try adding this to your _config file:

HTTP::set_cache_age(0);

You should at least clear your browser cache once after that in order for it to work.

I had the same problem.

With so many people having this problem should it be reported as a bug?

I added HTTP::set_cache_age(0); and all works fine now.

but how will HTTP::set_cache_age(0); effect the performance now?

The problem with the caching is something different than the problem of images not being uploaded by the swf uploader.

I believe the set_cache thing just tells your browser not to use the cache for it. Don't think that is a bug.

Worked for 1 image when I did the cache thing in FF.
Then stopped working again - tried fluching and clearing cache, still did not work.

Changed to IE and works fine now.
so must be some sort of FF thing:(

Yeah we have the same experience. Works in IE, not in FF, but it still depends on the hosting because I had it work on localhost AND on Dreamhost.

Hello everybody

It seems that a few people have this problem.
The uploading of images should preferably works independent of the browser preference and hosting provider (mod_security, etc.).

Would be great if someone of the core team could take care of this issue.

Thanks
