    Hi... I have strange problem with creating folders... If I create a folder it takes me thru steps to name folder no problem, after this when i enter the folder to upload a file i get a spinning loading at the bottom of the page which does not going away (ajax spinner)... I also notice that if i look in the uploads/buddydrive directory on my server, the new folder I created does not exist, but in my buddypress files list the folder is there... If I try to upload a file to the folder, it does not upload. Yet if i upload a file to the ROOT folder it works no problem...

    I checked permission on buddydrive folder which is 777

    Folders are virtuals, they are not created in the /uploads/buddydrive directory. They are a custom post type the file is attached to. I think the problem is related to javascript.

    Please, can you create a new folder, then open it and try to upload a new file, then once the ajax spinner showes, check your browser's javascript error console and tell me what's the error message if any.

    Then, can you try to create a folder, then instead of opening it, and making sure you're at the "root" listing, try to upload a new file, you should have a step to choose the folder to attach the file to.

    I'll try to reproduce waiting for your feedback.

    @imath - thank you for replying so quick... tried steps as suggested... unfortunately no errors in java console... i then went back to root and uploaded a test file... it asks for name, then privacy select box appears.., then the ajax uploader.. but no ask for folder step :(

    The site is at http://smeak.com - any member that signs up, or use FB to sign up cam upload files... so maybe you can check... I know this is also personal Q, but I was also hoping to engage you possibly if u have time for paid work regarding yer missing avatar mystery man and knowledge of BP signup procedure

    Just registered, and tested. It seems to work the way it should ;)

    if you go on my buddydrive on your website, you'll see that i've added a file in a public folder.

    Once a folder is created, it's automatically opened, and you just need to use the buddydrive bar to add a new file in this folder.

    For the second part of your reply, i don't thinks it's the place to discuss about it, but now i registered to your site, you can use my email and tell me more about it ;)
