But it was working fine on at least 3.0.10-3.0.12, and the upgrade which we did primarily to bring a responsive layout to users on mobile devices has now impeded them more greatly than before. An extension to enable this would be great but I haven't seen one on the table, and a custom style defeats the purpose to the move to a universal responsive approach.

I get that unexpected problems get introduced to a new platform and the work that's been done is great, but I'm unclear if it's a known issue and is being ignored as part of an iOS problem under the new approach, or is being looked at with a fix being sought.

Did you see this? Try doing as one of the posters in the apple discussion did, see if attachment upload works on Facebook or some other social network type site that allows attachments.

Hi, I just verified that file uploads work on other sites including discussions.apple.com
Just to make sure we stay with the facts:

• Uploads work on phpBB 3.0.x regardless of iOS version (verified iOS 6.x up to 8.1)
• Uploads work on other sites using default file chooser dialogues (tested with iOS 8.1)
• Uploads work on phpBB 3.1 if you use an alternative browser (Google Chrome) in desktop mode
• Uploads do not work on phpBB 3.1 if you use Safari regardless of iOS version (verified iOS 7.1 and iOS 8.1)

So even if there is something in iOS preventing this to work, it has only begun with phpBB 3.1. It worked flawlessly with 3.0.x up to 3.0.12 while using iOS 6.x, 7.x and 8.x

Even though I have submitted a bug report to apple at http://bugreport.apple.com/ just to be sure, I would say this is a problem with phpBB 3.1. Is there anything additional I need to do in order to file a bug about it?

Thanks!
poenn

There is a bug report already open for this issue: https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-13239 It will be fixed in 3.1.2. :)

I've submitted a patch for this. Feel free to test it by replacing your /assets/javascript/plupload.js with https://raw.githubusercontent.com/proto ... lupload.js

Tested across macbook (OSX), iPad2 (iOS 7.1, Safari), and iPhone5 (iOS 7.1, Safari).

Works an absolute charm! A slight display layer quirk on the iPad for the status upload column/bar, but i also get that here on the Mac so it's no biggy. Technically you've nailed it prototech.

You probably hear this daily, but you guys are awesome! :D

Here's the iPad in action should it help:

Thanks a lot!

I just tested it with an iPhone 5s running iOS 8.1, works fine, even multiple file uploads. I made a backup of the original plupload.js file. Should I put it back prior to the update once 3.1.2 is released? Or would this not matter?

Thanks again! I really appreciate your work on this quick fix! ;)

I would imagine the patched version you now have should be ok. You would overwrite plupload.js in any future updates in any case if it has had a bug fix.

This is probably just browser cache. You can try to purge it first.
