Persistent error uploading


Well-Known Member
I'm using Windows 10 and Chrome, and, for some reason, every time I try to upload either a jpg or gif, I get a message stating:

The following error occurred

There was a problem uploading your file.

No other information is given in the pop-up.

I've tried several things, including an attempt with no active extensions, and with IE, but no luck.

How big is the file? Are there limitations on file size on this site?
I don't think that is the issue. I've tried several small files.

When I researched it, I did find some forums where the Shockwave Flash plug-in was implicated, but, you can't access plug-ins on the newer version of Chrome. There was also something about a Flash uploader, but I have to admit I'm not sure what that is. That may have been more of a Firefox issue.
Oh yuck, the uploader is Flash-based? There's good reason why you can't use those plugins in Chrome anymore. They're about as secure as a screen door. Can't believe this platform doesn't have an HTML5-based uploader.
I honestly don't know and have to admit I'm not tech savvy at all. The flash uploader was simply something that came up when I googled the problem, but was primarily being discussed by people using Firefox.

I should mention that the problem occurs whether I use Windows or Mac.
