I'm a CSS/HTML designer and I've been trying to use Uploadify, but with little luck. Does anyone know of a good solution that is easier to implement than Uploadify. Preferably the uploader would provide status bar and options for multiple uploads. If anyone is familer with Uploadify, I'd be willing to take some suggestions on correcting implementation errors.

Not sure, but usually using jQuery stuff is very straight forward.

Will confirm that it is a dog though. Just spent a few minutes trying to get the example going and, well, it wasn't done without hacking.

Here is a success:

Tricks were in "index.php": replaced src="/example/" with relative references comme-ci:

<link href="css/default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="css/uploadify.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery.uploadify.v2.1.0.min.js"></script>

Another thing to note is the this is being served by a webserver that has PHP installed. If you don't have PHP on the machine you're working on this won't work of course.

Once you've got the example going you should be able to play with it to your liking. It's working well here.

I think it's cute that they left the Dreamweaver syncing folders in the example too :)

  • Elena, Thanks for your help, all seems to be working properlyexcept the files are not actually uploading. They say they "completed" but there is nothing in the upload folder on the server. Strange. I checked the permissions on the folder, and it is 777 so that should not be an issue. Do you have any suggestions? I'll try and see if there is anything in the Uploadify Forum about this as well. Thanks again for your previous answer. It was very helpful. Not-a-Coder almost 10 years ago
