    Problems inserting the macro

    First of all, this is a really great package.

    The upload function of multiple files works perfectly in the media section, so that's some great work you have done!

    But I then wanted to try out the macro on the frontend, and I just can't seem to get it working :(

    My problem is that when I try to insert the macro into one of my templates, nothing happens when I click the "OK"-button.

    I have installed Umbraco 4.5 with Runway and Runway Top Navigation installed and that's all. Inserting the top navigation macro is no problem, so I can't understand why the Gecko Uploadify macro can't be inserted. In IE7 the browser gives me an error like this:

    Anybody else having problem with this or is it just me?

    Thanks in advance guys...

    I haven't tried it myself, but I suppose this package is specifically intended to be used in the media section of your site, not in the frontend of the site.

    Taken from the description of this package:

    Also included is a macro that can be placed on the front-end of your
    site, allowing Multiple files to be uploaded by users of the site where

    And when I install the package there is a macro created as well :)

    But the backend functionality (the most important part of this package in my mind!) with multiple upload function works just perfect.

    Hi Kim

    Thanks for the heads-up.  I'll see if we can take a look at this soon, but for a workaround you can use the macro syntax manually such as

      <umbraco:Macro MediaFolder="" InputFieldId="" ButtonText="" AllowedTypes="" SizeLimitMB="" Alias="GeckoUploadify" runat="server"></umbraco:Macro>

    And it should work fine

    Hi Dan

    Yeah that works just fine. I just have one other question about returning a list of uploaded files, but I'll create a new post about that so this one can be closed.
