"Start Upload" not working on image upload

We're just starting out with Simple-Press, and searching for topics related to the "file uploads" plugin seems to return every single forum post, so I apologize if this is a repeat question:

I'm trying to upload an image to a post, and I'm able to drag/drop one or select a file just fine, but the tiny "start upload" option doesn't work – nothing happens when I click it.

I've checked permissions, and I have them set to allow file uploads, and the file type (jpg) is included.

It looks like the documentation for this plugin only refers to the 5.x.x version of Simple-Press, and we're running the current version, so I'm not sure where else to look for troubleshooting help.

If it's any help, the "attachments" option on this post worked for me just fine. On our installation, though, there is no + or arrow icon appearing with the "add files" and "start upload" options, respectively.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi Kim!

Great to hear that you are getting started with Simple:Press, and no need to apologize about posting.

It sounds like you have done it all correctly, but it's a bit tricky to know. Could you post your "Site Info" here in the forum, you can find it under "Tools -> Site Health" and under the second tab "Info" there is a button "Copy site info to clipboard" that copies all information we need.

The documentation for the "File uploader" can be found here for the latest version, please have a look at it.
