User interface still 'unusable' Answered

I can't believe this but the UI of this site continues to be virtually unusable. I am now trying to respond to a comment in one of my instructables and cannot do something as simple as upload an image. Here is the work-flow:

Click 'Add Images'->'upload'->'Upload Files'->nothing->'SELECT FILES'->select an image->nothing

Next I go to my member profile. There is not a single link there that allows me to upload images or even see what images are in my library. I tried this in Firefox and Safari with the same results.

If I add a link to an image uploaded to a file hoster, which is the preferred way to do it, it does not display.

How is anybody supposed to add an image to a post or to their own instructable? This is just basic functionality that is taken for granted in any forum. Why is it so difficult (impossible really) to do this in a forum that relies entirely on images to convey information?

Thank you for reporting this - I've been having issues with it too!

From your "You" page, you should see "Image Library" on the left-hand side of the page.  That is how to just upload images to your account.

I am running into the same issue when trying to add an image to a comment.  Thank you for the information.  I am going to pass it on so it can be filed as an issue.

If there is an image below, ignore it, it is me experimenting with the add images function.

OK got it. I was looking at the page I got when clicking on my user name in my Instructable. I did finally find this other page by searching for it on Google. Thanks.
