UX: (Legacy) Flash vs. HTML Upload

Reported by: hakre Owned by:
Milestone: 3.3 Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 2.9.2
Component: Upload Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


On a setup where flash upload is not applicable (i.e. because of SSL), it will still be offered as an option.

When a user then will realize, that this is by error and manually switch over to "browser upload" (link is offered at least in 2.9.x), then the flash upload progress meter is still there even though this makes no sense.

This is a MINOR ISSUE but it might look akward to a user, therefore classified as UX.

Maybe UX Department (Jane?) will see this not as minor, so please be not offended by my classification. I will totally agree that this can confuse a user because we have elements on screen which are hard to understand if you do not know the technical details.

This one might be (hopefully) too late for 3.0 to fix.

I've been actually thinking that we can replace the flash uploader with HTML 5.0 multi-file uploader for 3.1. Or even better with Pupload as it uses HTML 5, Flash, Gears, Silverlight and BrowserPlus if any is available and falls back to HTML 4 (single file select) with the same consistent interface. IMHO this is the best open source uploader currently available demo.

I'm setting this to 3.1, The Upload UI can be looked at then.
