I installed the latest Java update too. As VM said, the site doesn't use Java. The uploader uses Flash. There was a Flash update recently and your browser will block it if you don't keep it up to date and enable it, so I recommend updating Flash.

That was what not what I meant.  What I mean is that Java somehow is blocking Flash on my end or it could be a conflict between Java and Flash.

If that's happening, then it's probably a bug in your browser's plugin system as the plugins are supposed to be called when they're needed.

More than likely, either your browser is blocking Flash or your Flash install needs repairing.

In any case, this isn't an issue on our end. You can switch to the HTML uploader if you don't want to mess with Flash.

Searched for this but no bananas- how does one use BBCcode for a link in the status update field? Thanks.

You just paste the link in. It's hit and miss whether the forum software will recognize the link or not. I think it works better if the link follows a space, not a carriage return.

I uninstalled Java a long time ago and didn't regret that decision at all either :P

 

As for the number of sites still using Flash, you'd be surprised. Virtually all of the ones I frequent work perfectly without it, including IPB 3.x sites. You just don't get the fancy uploader without it. IPB 4 uses HTML 5 for all that so Flash isn't even a thing there anymore.

But I like to drink a hot cup of coffee every morning, so that's why I haven't removed Java on my end. :P

I just discover that those people who doesn't have an avatar or guests will automatically have an Assimilated Cat avatar. :D

 

Cool idea and I got a good laugh when I saw it in the list of online users. :rofl:

We've had some people say they like it so much they don't bother setting an avatar. :D

Interesting, Your link posted here doesn't work using this browser. Tried with <CR LF>, dots or spaces- even &nbsp. Not working with IE, Edge or Chrome.  :cry:

It turns out be something related to Firefox, because the other day I installed an update and now the grey "Choose Files..." button is there as it should be.
