Francisco Hi, I have tested my forms in a windows machine with IE8 and the image and file uploads not work. I send to you a video captute of the problem: I hate Microsoft Internet explorer, but know that many people use it, specially old versions like IE8. Best regards.

Hi @tareq,

I have found this solution and tested: works perfect for a files and images upload buttons.

Hi @tareq,

I have created a screencast for you can see the error that have the “image upload in post area” when it uses Internet explorer 8 on the test site of

Also, I have tested a better way to do the solution I found (is putting flash in second order):

1. Open /js/upload.js
2. On line 24 change the runtimes order to html5,flash,html4
3. On line 37 change flash_swf_url to ‘/wp-includes/js/plupload/plupload.flash.swf’

Best regards

The “image upload in post area” feature is handled in /js/frontend-form.js. Try changing there too following that instruction.

Hi @tareq,

I have modified the file/js/frontend-form.js on:
– line 331 to: runtimes: 'flash,html5,html4',
– line 344 to: flash_swf_url: '/wp-includes/js/plupload/plupload.flash.swf',

I have tested and continue with the same problem, in this case not open the window to select the files.

Also is strange that in the “image upload in post area” the progress bar work fine, but in the buttons to upload images and files not work.

Maybe a good solution is set an alert to use Internet Explorer 11 or another updated browser 🙂
