Anyone else had this problem? I've tried to drag and drop files that I've previously uploaded but no luck. I then tried uploading a new file and it wouldn't work. Any suggestions?

Do you mean you are trying to add files to a post on the forum?

Yes. I wanted to start a new thread and post a picture of a tattoo that I'd done. I've tried clicking on the paperclip and the small picture icons to upload and add pictures but neither have worked. I have browsed my computer and found the picture but when I click on upload nothing happens. I have resized the picture. I also tried to drag and drop one of the pictures that i had uploaded previously which worked ok before to see if I could add it to the post but I could not drag and drop into the area to add to a post.

I have tested things this end with different user permissions, and all seems ok. Make sure you haven't disabled javascript or something in your browser. What browser do you use by the way.
We recommend Firefox.

Internet explorer which comes on your computer is very buggy.

im in chat if you need more help.

I tried to start a new thread in buy, sell and wanted with a picture I had uploaded and it just would not work, so a bit later on in the day i tried the same thing but in suppliers and product ratings and it worked with no problems.

IE is garbage now! I think Microsoft know it, as they dont even bother with minor updates anymore.
Firefox everytime for me
