Since it's been a while since we've posted anything about V2, I thought I'd add a little bit on the File Upload feature that we've implemented in V2 of our software.
One of the things that we've noticed that people use a lot
in forums is the ability to post files and images. You may have noticed recently that we added support (in V1) for image uploading via Photobucket. And Network54 has always had support for image uploading (via Realms) since 1999.
Of course, in 1999 it was the coolest feature ever. But it's 2006, and file uploading in V1 is a little clunky (not to mention an IE only feature). So, we took out all of the clunkiness and tried to make it as simple as possible for V2. Just for definition purposes, "clunky" here means too many mouse clicks. And by that definition, the Realm/Browser feature in V1 for uploading images is clunky
So, this is the upload panel for V2:
Clicking the "Browse" button will pull up a file selection box like you would normally see. And here's where the good stuff happens. Once you've selected the file, the upload process happens automatically.
Once the file is uploaded, it's right there. No page refresh, no V1 type browser:
Of course, you can also upload multiple files/images:
All of this happens asynchronously... which means you can be typing away while your multiple files are uploading. So we took the multi+ clicks from the current V1 way of uploading things and turned it into two clicks.
