I know this forum is a little over-run by negative reactions on 2.5... I've upgraded all my 5 sites to 2.5 and am now a very happy user. One thing seems to bite me though, I can no longer post photographs / images from anywhere but my home pc.
On school networks the media uploader is blocked. So now I'm having the same problem on WordPress as I had already on for instance Photobucket. The regular uploader on 2.3 that isn't as fancy was allowed by the school network. I love the new uploader and I wouldn't want it to go away, but is there any chance the 2.3 uploader can be added as an alternative to the new uploader? That way I can still post photos from where ever I might be.
