Can’t upload images and I must use Flash 10
I cannot upload media to WordPress using IE7 on my work WinXP PC using Adobe Flash 10. It works on my home PC on IE6 with Adobe Flash 9. (Yes I know about 10 vs 9… keep reading).
Image upload works on Firefox on both home & work PCs even though one has Flash 10 and one has Flash 9.
The bug behavior is that WordPress presents the “Choose Files to Upload” window but when I click the button to upload, nothing happens at all.
I looked up the problem here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/164999 in which you say Adobe Flash 10 is bad and you will NOT fix WordPress.
Adobe Flash 9 is no longer available. I decided to get it from oldversions.com. I uninstalled 10 & installed 9 using their tools. This action *did* allow upload of images into WordPress but it broke our website, including the page that links to my blog.
I gave up on Flash 9 and installed Adobe Flash 10 ActiveX to make our website work. This again broke image upload – but this time it was broken everywhere – in both IE7 and Firefox. Even worse, Firefox abended whenever I went to the page that links to my blog.
Aaarrggg! I had to go back to my last Restore Point, which was recent. Thankfully.
As I said before, Adobe Flash 9 is no longer available. And now I am dealing with a website that depends on Flash 10. Have you fixed image upload for Adobe Flash 10 in a later version or must I believe Support Topic 164999 when it says you will never fix this???? If so, I am hosed.
