Can't upload photos from android phone


#1

Anyone else have this problem? In the first days the new forum was running I managed to upload photos from my phone but it’s not working anymore. When I hit upload nothing happens.


#2

works for me


#3

I’ll try butcombe, many thanks


#4

I’ve had issues twice. Not sure if it was as a result of poor signal or not


#5

You may need to be above a certain trust level to post photos.


#6

Trust level is member and I’ve posted a fair amount of photos through my PC recently, it just doesn’t work when I try to upload using my phone… and it used to.


#7

Can you just use urls linking to images from mobile if it’s an issue?


#8

It’s not really an issue just a bit of an inconvenience. Just thought I’d highlight it in case anyone could tell me an easy fix.


#9

Got the latest Android and Chrome? Any updates waiting for you to okay in the play store?


#10

Wait, you know the upload button is in a different place on mobile right? To the bottom right of the text box.


#11

Yeah. Nothing happens when I press it.


#12

Maybe a permissions thing with your phone? Have you set it to block your browser from accessing your phone’s content or something?


#13

Not knowingly. I’ll have a look.


#14

It’s some sort of error, not sure what, when logged in on the Web app. Managed to upload a photo when I logged in through the link on the old forum. Good enough for me. CBA trying to figure out what the error is.


#15

The old forum and this one are completely unrelated though!?


#16

Sorry, yeah that doesn’t read how I meant it. What I was getting at is in that instance I used the link that you originally posted on the old forum (the thread telling everyone to migrate over here). I know open the new forum using ‘internet’ instead of the mobile web app if I want to upload using my phone because the mobile web app won’t allow me to upload anything ¯_(ツ)_/¯


#17

The fact that nobody else has had this issue would suggest that it’s almost certainly my lack of android/smart phone savy hindering resolution/creating the error. I’m ok with that :upside_down:
