Browser issue Attachment Uploading Broken


Well-known member
I can't seem to be able to create a resource with attachments (plugin or screenshots). Whenever I try to upload the plugin zip, I get the screen below (blank bar). I then realized that this happens if I try to upload screenshots here too, outside the resource section.

When I try to upload screenshot(s), I get the notice below.

I tried making the resource internal & free and then as external and $1 but neither works.

Tested in Chromium and Firefox.

P.S. Please also delete this thread from the failed attempt at making the mod: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/spammers-suck-paid-deleted.45351/

are you on a VPN or a proxy when trying to attach images? I've had this when using Squid to proxy to my site.

Yes, I am on a proxy, but why is that affecting something so high-level? I have no issues attaching things on other software. For now though, I'll do what I have to without the proxy -- thanks!

This might be a well-known information in SWFUpload

The Flash Player may not properly use proxies. It does not handle authenticating proxies well (if at all) and will some-times crash.
Some anti-virus software uses a proxy to scan uploads and cause SWFUpload to believe the entire file has been uploaded. SWFUpload will fire uploadProgress events very quickly until it reaches 100% and will then seem to pause until the proxy completes uploading the file to the server.

Users have reported on my install that the flash uploader does not work on chrome on linux

Given that is a very little percentage of my users, I did not care to report this , but if that helps... Well it does not work.
