Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

    if you have git you can clone it on your machine.

    other wise just go through the files - take note of name and location.

    and cut and paste each one from github into the respective places on your server.

    you may also be able to zip up the entire add-ons package if that is where it is located.

    I too cannot use curl or wget on github (there is no concept of retry when timeout on that site) and the zips always fail on a slow connection. So, at least on a slow connection it is pretty much impossible on github to do anything because it has not ability to deal with retries on timeouts. so git clone appears to be the best way.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • Thanks for that Peregrine - doesn't make it easy does it ;-(

    I've noticed as I'm doing that the version of Vanilla required is 2.1a but the version available for download is only 2.0.18.8 (the one I have).

    This is getting very confusing. Which version of Vanilla is the current one?

    Cheers

    Dave

    This has been answered elsewhere, but 2.0.18.8 is the current stable version. Any other version is either old, unreleased, or beta.

  • There's a thread about FielUpload stopping working http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/22651/fileupload-suddenly-stopped-working#latest

    In which @qbauer mentions something missing from my theme's default.master.php file.

    This worked for me: many, many thanks.

  • that was @vrijvlinder who solved it and qbauer who reported back that @vrijvlinder was correct. :)

    if the above didn't work. try debugging different steps and see where it fails.

    one would think if you are using an alpha version of vanilla, you might need to use an alpha version of plugin as well. And if you use an alpha version of vanilla, you are pretty much on your own. you should be able to figure out as an alpha tester.

    Try version 2.1b2 and the version of fileupload that goes along with it and report back, which you should be able to figure out as a beta tester.

    Try version 2.0.18.x and the version 1.5.2 of fileupload and report back.

  • Im using vanilla v 2.2.5 and FileUpload 1.8. Can I find a beta or newer version of FileUpload on Github ?

    Perhaps, haven't checked. this forum uses version 2.2.5 and v 1.8 of the fileupload plugin at this moment in time.

    Sometimes you have to troubleshoot things. did you try fileupload 1.7.1 with 2.1b2 and the default theme? and no other plugins enabled. The idea is is to reduce the complexity.

    I pretty much think alpha version questions on this forum should be ignored and issues posted on github, since it should only be used by people capable of solving problems themselves.

    @McLarenDan welcome aboard.

    clearly you didn't read the instructions when posting about issues you have.

    State the version of vanilla.
    post your issue on github.
    state the version of the plugin you are using.

    give more details.

    state the browser you are using.

    clearly the a version of the plugin works for me in 2.1 and many other people.

    just hide the progress.gif

    problems can also occur depending on the bandwidth and/or browser or even theme or a misconfiguration on your part.

    Both you guys provide excellent examples of how to post without giving any information.

    @McLarenDan said: I'd just like to add - I have the EXACT same issue.

    you are also using the same version of plugin and vanilla as the OP
    I doubt it. not a good idea to use a old beta version anyway.

    @McLarenDan said: Clearly nothing wrong with your setup - more down to the developer... .FIX IT!

    lol - he has lots of issues with his setup.

    @McLarenDan said: DO NOT USE UNTIL THIS ISSUE IS FIXED EVERYONE!!!!

    DO NOT USE UNTIL THIS until you learn how to post some valuable info and details and screenshots and permissions and folder permissions.

    people have had success with vanilla 2.1 and extracting from this zip

    this zip below includes version 1.8.2

    https://github.com/vanilla/addons/archive/2.1.zip

    and replacing with these files, after you read the instructions carefully.
