Peter Uploading images in IE does not work at all. I even logged into the wedevs demo site for WPUF Pro and created a form and page to try. Here is the link: You'll notice that when you select an image, it works great in Chrome, Safari and Firefox. But it doesn't work at all in IE 9 or IE 10.

Hello @benmaxny – yes, its a well known issue. Please check this topic if it may helps you.

We are still looking for a solid solution for IE 9 and 10. Hoping dev team will be able to short it out soon.

I was able to get uploading to work in all browsers including IE9 and IE10 by doing the following.

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

This doesn’t seem the perfect solution because all the browsers that were working (chrome, firefox, etc) default to flash now instead of html5. But at least it’s working in all browsers for me now.

If we could find the reason that making the runtimes order html5,flash,html4 hangs in IE everything would be perfect.

Id like to hear if anyone has had any luck with Internet Explorer? Is this fix working flawlessly?

This fix has worked flawlessly for me. It is being used on a high traffic contest site where the public can upload photos as a guest, and we have no problems with it at all.

This plugin is probably the most useful WP plugin I have ever used. Which is why I am hoping the developers get it fixed so that html5 uploading works as the default.

@Tareq: is there a way to get this fix into updates of WPUF Pro?

As it works good, this will be fixed in the future update.

I’ve tried applying this fix, but whilst the flash file does upload, it displays only as a black square!?

Does anyone know how to solve this? is there standard button layout that should be displaying? Are there styles I should be using?

This is really frustrating because so many people (for some reason) still use IE 8.
