[resolved] Drag and Drop uploader not available (5 posts)

    Hey all,

    I see that in 3.3 there is a new drag and drop feature for the uploader, but unless I'm missing something it appears to not exist.

    I'm using 3.3.1, just downloaded a clean version with no plugins or custom themes, and it is still not there. Is there something on the server that could be preventing it from working?

    What does your Upload look like. When you are in the Editor and click the Upload/Insert button this overlay should pop up, where you can drag and drop files: https://skitch.com/lucahammer/garcn/add-new-post-work-i-o-insight-wordpress

    The uploader is working fine, both through the media tab and through the add media button when editing/adding a post.

    I have just noticed that drag and drop is available to me in FF and Chrome, but not IE and Opera, so it's not as bad as I first though. Is there any thing that WP have put out that you know of that explains this?

    It needs HTML5 upload support: http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/uploader/

    Thanks Luca,

    Using IE8, so that'll be why.
