uploader not working
Join to comment
well today i have an issue with the java new uploader. today i wanted to upload my two creations up today and when i went to use the uploader it said install java, okay, i checked everything i was supposed to use here and it worked properly however a new firefox update went in and i believe that's why i cannot upload anything now. i checked the plugins section and the java plugin was gone except for java script. i also tried ie and chrome but none of them could help considering all of them wont support java anymore. i know there is simple uploader but it does not give me the image quality i need or want.its funny i was just using this last weekend and before hand and now all of sudden it wont cooperate.so is there anything else i can use on mocpages? as it looks right now there is no way i can fix it on my own.

Do you post Lego pics anywhere else? You could copy the pics, and add the HTML to make them show up.

We mean a place like Flickr. But really, anywhere you can get an embed code for each image to copy over. It won't help you with the main image, but until the uploader gets fixed (I still haven't tried myself) that's what you'll have to do.

thanks for the info, well i got some good news and bad news, the good news is i got the uploader up and running again i just reentered the boolean for firefox which is tricking the browser into thinking the plugin is safe to use. the bad news is its only functional for a year after that the route i used will be blocked permanently along with java.

Hi, can you give us an example of the Html code we need to enter. For a flickr image for instance.
Thank you !

There is a share function on Flickr Pages. Then there is an HTML Embed code that can be selected. I'm not going step by step; it's actually really simple.

Hi Jason.

I think the problem might be the size of the pictures. Try opening them in paint and shrink the size to 800x600 :-)

I am also unable to get the picture uploader working. It seams Firefox no longer supports Java, according to the website, Chrome doesn't support it ether, and for what ever reason Internet Explorer wont run the uploader ether despite it being enabled for that. This kind of leaves me out of options.

Does the simple uploader not work for pictures over 800x600? According to the text at the bottom of it it should just be slower for larger files, not non-functional.

I understand from previous posts one is able to embed photos elsewhere as HTML, what would be the point of using this site if I can just upload them somewhere else? I like the community and layout of MOCpages, but it is frustrating having major features not work, so I hope a solution can be found soon.

Hey Scott , I also had an issue with the uploader. In your exception list did you type Moc-pages the dash must be there to work.

Hi Scott.
Regarding the simple uploader, When i tried uploading full-size (4mb) pictures, the uploader didn't recognize the pictures as .jpg-files. I don't remember where, but i read that i should try to shrink them to 800x600 dpi, and that worked for me. the uploader -might- accept slightly larger files than that, but i have never tried so i don't know that for sure.

I remember a year or so ago you (at least I think it was you) made a guide on how to do all of that. I checked last night and the exceptions are still there. What is happening new is a new problem which I think is caused by web browsers dropping support for Java completely.

The simple uploader works if I shrink the pictures down, it is just an additional step, and gets annoying when I have several dozen pictures to upload.

Short term I am thinking I will use the simple uploader for the main picture so I have a thumbnail, and then try what some others suggested by adding pictures from Flickr with HTML. I just hope that in the future a better solution can be found.

Yeah that was me. I hope this other fix works for you.

Is anyone having issues uploading? I have tried to upload over the past 2 days and have not had any luck. When I click on the simple up-loader, I add all the photos and the percentage goes up to 100, it loads 'Continue'I click it and then the HTML never comes up. I don't know what it is that is causing it not to work. I have tried multiple computers and still nothing. I was working around 3 days ago. Please someone help, grrr. Thanks.
