Title: Image upload not easy on Windows!
Post by Simon Reap on Today at 10:53
Hi Steve/Snoopy

I just tried to upload a couple of images from my Windows 11 laptop. I could choose the file (happened to be in a folder on my desktop), but when I clicked the upload button it said "no image file specified". Pretty sure this a JPG/jpg problem. The pictures from my camera all come as .JPG files. I've got Windows Subsystem for Linux on my laptop, so copied the files to new names with lower-case .jpg extensions. They uploaded fine.

Hi Simon

Good to see your set-list and superb photos appearing, and so promptly!

Concerning image upload: it was all my fault, and I apologise for your having to work around it. Simply speaking, my Javascript regex list of acceptable image file extensions assumed lower case, when it should have been case-insensitive. The addition of just one character ( the letter 'i' ) to the code corrected it. Many thanks for drawing this to my attention.

Steve

No problem, Steve, thought it might be that.

As the old IT saying goes, if you have 10 problems and add a regex to solve them, you now have 11 problems. :-)
