File Upload - Drag 'n' Drop only works once.

I've just uploaded a couple of images to another forum here, but while doing it I could only load one image via D'n'D as it didn't work after the first image. I wanted to load them one at a time so I could title them and put them in the correct order. I know I can use the Browse option as I ended up doing but D'n'D is so much easier.

I don't suppose that this is the intended mode of operation, so am I doing something wrong or is there an issue with this component?

you need to wait until the bar under the first image goes

I assume by that @Oldjim you mean the uploader bar, that when finished allows you to enter the image title? If that's the case then I always do. But the D'n'D text that originally appears in the middle of page doesn't re-appear and dragging to the area to the right of the uploaded image does nothing; for me at least.

Strange...

When I view this thread I get this prompt

I must have been really bad in a previous life. This is my 3rd ISP in a row that uses lithium.

so did I - will need to check

OK this is odd

The original image came from a post on the testing site and I did a copy and paste but instead of posting the image it posted the link

Now sorted

@Browni - I also got that prompt, but its gone now, and I now see the image that @Oldjim posted in his first response, it was just an image name the last time.

Re: File Upload - Drag 'n' Drop only works once.

You guys got that prompt because @Oldjim added a photo from the staging site and tried to show it directly from there. Jim has since reuploaded the file to this site instead so the password prompt should no longer be showing.

Thanks @Oldjim. I thought I would acknowledge this as I received a PM about it.

Re: File Upload - Drag 'n' Drop only works once.

I have identified a bug and issued a fix on the staging site.

Basically what I had done is remove the 'image' icon that is displayed on the drag-n-drop box but didn't realise this would have an affect on the drag and drop function if you were to upload single files using this method. I have now reinstated the image icon as that is what was keeping the container open when the file reached the bounds of the container.

This fix will be rolled out with the next update (which should be a lot sooner than the last update interval).
