Just wanted to post this for reference in the hope that it might get foxed, sorry fixed. The picture posting application doesn't work with Firefox 3. It will accept an upload but doesn't pass it back to the posting form. This could be because I have NoScript enabled, but even if I allow scripts globally it doesn't work. I think it might be a cross-scripting issue and as I've noticed other people mentioning it, it probably should be looked at. It works using the current version of Opera, haven't tested it with Safari (I'm on a Mac), so if you need a workaround, download Opera from http://www.opera.com.

Uploading photos if you use Firefox as your browser rather than Internet Explorer simply doesn;t work. I don't remember if this was the case before the upgrade to Firefox 3, but it is not just Secret Leeds which it has problems with it.The system used for Secret Leeds has a few strange features and problems and DSCO has promised that we should be moving to something different, which we are told should resolve a lot of problems.....hoping that might be soon Duncan so I doubt time will be spent trying to change things were we are now.

I use Firefox and I can post pics. That sounds awfully smug now I've read it back. I shall refrain from uttering, 'Ner ner na neeer ner.' Ahem.

Well. aren't you the special one then, just because you got extra Easter Eggs --- Maybe you're just too good for this siteSeriously, that's interesting, as far as I know, you're the only one that can.(Have this fleeting thought of Brandy spending all night with laptop in each hand trying every possible setting going;0 )
