Bulk Photo Upload with Firefox and Adblock.

Travel Forums System Talk Bulk Photo Upload with Firefox and Adblock.

Hey guys,

Tried to upload some photos today using Firefox. I went to bulk upload, but the file choose area never changed from the single file to the multiple file selection. As such, could only bulk upload one file at a time.

The only change I have made that I could think of that might effect it is the add-on program Adblock. I added it last night. I have only blocked on site so far (*.kontera.com). Is there anything that could be causing this - some third party software Adblock is picking up on and disallowing? I am using Firefox 3.0.1 for Apple. Adblock is v5, d3, nightly 43.

Bulk upload is working fine with Safari for me - same connection and everything.

I managed to fix this. Adblock was the problem.

I also had a problem with displaying travel maps when Adblock was installed. It would tell me that I didn't have flash 7 or higher installed, when I had the latest version (9.0 r124) installed.

I removed Adblock and replaced it with Adblock Plus. It has the same functionality, but doesn't play havoc with my ability to use flash.

Tried to bulk upload photos. It gives an error but doesn't tell what error and blanks out some of the fields like location & tags.
Tried thrice. I have 4 incomplete uploads sitting in my gallery whereas single upload is working perfectly.

Any solution ? Should I try them one by one ? how to remove those 4 incomplete ones from my photo gallery ?

Not sure about the error, but the bulk upload doesn't have the same fields as the single upload. Once you have uploaded the photos though, it should take you to a page where you can edit them in bulk.

If you have existing incomplete uploads, then there should be a link to click on and go edit them, looks something like this: 1 incopmlete upload

Hope that helps. Regarding the error, do you have any more information that could be of use - like what kind of browser you are using and what version of Flash you have installed. Both have the potential to be the cause of the problem.

Yes, the bulk upload doesn't have the same fields as the single upload. The error occurred when I did the bulk editing & clicked on the 'save changes'. The error doesn't say much & remains as I mentioned earlier. Even while deleting from bulk updating mode gives the same error though deletes the photo !
This info is for the technical team of TP.

However, I deleted all photos from there one by one and uploaded them by single upload method.

I use Firefox 3.0.1

Thanks.
