XF 1.4 Can't upload images


Active member
I could but now I can't! I hadn't messed with permissions or allowable file types. I have removed all image related add-ons & re-visited my permissions & still can't upload. The error message doesn't give any clues.

Can any one advice how to troubleshoot this please?

Is it just one image or all images?

Is it just you or everyone?

If it was working, what has changed prior to it no longer working?


Active member
All images. There is only me at the moment.

I'd updated to a new version of an add-on. In case that was the cause I removed it & still have the same issue.

It was & has always been enabled. I just tried with it disabled & uploads work fine. I updated adobe flashplayer a couple of days back following a prompt. Could that be it?

With flash uploader enabled it works in chrome but still not in my default firefox. I haven't installed any add-on or plugins to my browser recently

Many thanks. That was it.

Apologies too. I have done this before & had the same problem. I have memory issues so I've put a big note at the top of my migration notes re this.
