what is wrong with the uploader?! ? Answered

i've been trying for 3 days to upload a simple jpg so i can get my instructable published, and using the old uploader it just sits there with the spinning thing (i let it run for an hour at one point), and the new uploader says "server (io) error". i'm using ie7, have no problems with any other websites, and am running on T1 connection. help!?

. I just uploaded a new avatar with no problems. Try using Firefox; there seem to be some incompatibilities between the site and IE.

I thought i might hear something like that. I don't and haven't used firefox and can't see how such a popular website could possibly have compatibility issues with IE. as far as i'm concerned, whether people like it or not, IE is the de facto standard internet browser, since it comes pre-loaded on every pre-fab pc out there. i don't mean to vent but i keep hearing more and more that firefox or other browsers should be used instead of IE, but that sounds more like an agenda than a solution.

i appreciate the response but i really hope this website and its creators doesn't have "issues" with IE as my first instructable will be my last.

. They had to pick one browser to concentrate on and Firefox seems to be more popular among the DIY crowd. . I don't like the fact that they quit putting carburetors on cars, but there's no stopping progress. . > i keep hearing more and more that firefox or other browsers should be used instead of IE, . Maybe you keep hearing that because it is true. ;) . As a user, I don't see a lot of difference between the two, but I've switched to FF because a lot of the sites I visit support it. . > as my first instructable will be my last. . I'm not going to suggest that you leave, but, with that attitude, I'm not going to discourage you either.

In some Javascript programs, the compatibility issue can be between your security levels or cookie acceptance. One way (if you are a skilled developer) to see the source code and discover the problem is to right-click the upload area and click View Source in the menu that appears. There you should eventually come across an area that says Format=JavaScript or Language=jScript, something similar.
