Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

standard uploader selection too small

Dieter Dreist   June 01, 2009, 01:06 PM

the text field is too small, at least in the standard (old)-uploader. I can't use the new one for a special configuration-issue (Firefox-adblock-problem with some flash-files). The selection text-field (for the filename) just shows some few characters (ca. 24 characters), which is not enough: e.g. "E:\eigene_Dateien\2009-05" not even the day is visible, and not the filename.

It is not possible to check which file it was, once selected, or to change the entry in the textfield.

There is no need for you to restrict the size of the text-field, or at least restrict it to something more reasonable (~60-80 characters).

This is even more important, as uploads sometimes freeze and require reselection.

Unfortunately, several browser don't allow you to set the width of the file upload field (the one with a Browse button next to it) -- so we won't be able to fix the easily. A suggestion: Why not disable the adblocker for

The problem is more general: even disabled completely it doesn't display some flash. This applies also to other pages and seems to be a known bug for adblock. I'm using Opera in these cases and it works quite fine for 23hq as well, there is just one thing: 23hq from time to time "forgets" pictures: they don't appear (they get uploaded, but then get lost). This happens like every 40-50 pictures, sometimes even more. There is no error message for this (like pic123 not recognised).
