Apple 'fix' enabled

Post by Trier » Thu Apr 12, 2012 12:30 am

Tried attaching a file using an iPhone and iPad, neither has worked - the 'Choose File' does not highlight. Logged out and back in and still does not highlight.


Cheers,

Ash

You're in the Blog Support forum, are you having problems with the blogs, or the forum? There currently is no fix for the WordPress blogs on the site.*

The workaround we announced only affects the forum. You can use the Tapatalk app to browse the forum, and to upload attachments to it. You must have and use this app to be able to upload images from an Apple device.

Please keep in mind, this is a limitation of the mobile implementation of Safari, not a limitation of the forum. Apple decided that their browser shouldn't be able to upload files from iPhone/iPad. Period. To any website. Please consider adding your voice to all the other customers they won't listen to, and tell them what you think of this.

We will continue to look for a better workaround for our WordPress blogs. Until then, I would recommend you upload your images from a computer to a third party site like Flickr, and then link to them in your posts here.

*Edit: You can use the WordPress app to upload images to your blog. Apparently it's not much good for anything else, but it works enough for that. So, upload your images to the media library of your blog with the app, then in Safari just insert them into your posts from the media library, while writing.

Thanks David - I realized this afternoon that I was in the blog help rather than 'bugs'! :bonk:

Not a problem. Did you get your issue solved?

Went to the Tapatalk website, and there were a few negative reviews about it causing crashes etc, so I thought I might wait for a bit until they iron some of their bugs out - still have the iMac at home.
