Sketchy pic file upload no longer being uploaded

Postby gwong25 » Tue May 26, 2015 7:35 pm

Hi,

I am having trouble uploading pic file and being able to look at the preview. I was able to do this before but now no longer.
Before I was able to get the list of uploaded files but now instead of the name of the file I get something like "C:\quickdraw\pic1.jpg" and no preview on the right of the page. I don't think I changed anything since I last used it.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Glenn

Can you post or send me a screenshot of the file list?

Also, have you been uploading files from that directory it displays? Can you just delete that entry in the list and try to upload again?

Thanks for sending me the screenshots. I did a little research and found that Internet Explorer, depending on how it's configured sends the entire path of the file and not just the filename. This causes the embedded webserver to fail while trying to show the image.

There are settings that can be changed in internet explorer as described here: http://www.nextofwindows.com/how-to-get-rid-of-cfakepath-in-ie-when-uploading-a-file-to-the-website-fix/

But, I've made a change to the code so you don't have to make these changes if using Internet Explorer. The update and instructions can be found in this post: http://www.quickdrawbot.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=15

Thanks,
