Let me cram a whole bunch into this one post... first of all, loving the latest version. It looks SO much cleaner than before, it feels snappy, and you almost gave me a heart attack when I looked under the surface and finally see some CSS classes and ids being applied to the various elements. The first time I ever tried Simple:Press way way back in the day I admittedly dropped it fairly quick because I couldn't isolate elements. I was stuck with trying to do CSS backflips which can only go so far. Much kudos for adding that.
On to the actual topic. I have a love/problem-with-post-edit-buttonate relationship with TinyMCE. Actually, I just hate it. I notice that in 5.0 you can still upload and attach images to a post even without it, which is another huge plus for me (if you can do this in 4.4.5, please point me to the setting so I can enable it!).
It doesn't seem to work though, at least not on the first run in Chrome 14.0.797.0 (Have yet to test in FF, Safari or my glue eating friend IExploder). Select a file, click upload, and... nothing. The stop upload button appears, and 'works' (it doesn't hang, but there's really nothing to stop).
Oh this is bad news. The uploader plugin is quite a recent inclusion. I would be grateful if you could try with a non-webkit browser such as Firefox.
I need to get Steve to discuss this one but sadly he is working away this week and wont be back until Friday. But I will email him to see if he can suggest what questions I should be asking you!
I have talked to Steve.
first up I must say that I have no problem uploading with Chrome.
he asked me to ask you to look at what runtime the uploader is selecting. You can discover this by hovering the mouse over the graphic in the top left - this will reveal the runtime in a tooltip.
HTML5 runtime in both FireFox 5.0 and Chrome 14 (Windows 7 64bit). Works fine in FireFox, but still no go in Chrome. No errors reported in console either, it just doesn't go anywhere after making all the ui updates (icon is grayed out, the upload bar appears, etc). If there is any other information I can provide or tests I can do, just let me know.
Chrome 14 is from the developer channels;
(available for Linux too if anyone wants the dev channels for those)
