I'm having problems with the uploader. This isn't the run-of-the-mill "I can't see my pictures" problem. I can see the pictures, but whenever I need to rotate a photo so it's vertical, it ALWAYS rotates it back to a horizontal position.

I just did a test page to see how it would work, and didn't have any problems. I'm assuming you used the newer loader (vs. the simple loader). I did notice that when I clicked to send the vertical image in the loading window to the editing page, the picture rotated back to horizontal...BUT, only in the loading window. It loaded on to my editing page just fine.

Post the MOC you're having trouble with, then post the link, and I'll see what the problem is.

My goodness. More issues. This one is on my side, though. I recently tried to upload a MOC. When I did the "add photos" the new window opened. I added my images, but after they were uploaded, they just sat there. I realized I needed to update java, so I did. When I do the "add photos" I normally click the "allow application" or something or other, but this time it went straight to "the application has been blocked. I am using google chrome. I tried to unblock it from the plugins page of chrome, but the application wasn't listed.

Well, after digging for a bit, I found the fix. The problem was that java now allows you to choose which sites and applications you trust. I just had to change some relatively settings and allow MOCpages.com to be used. Now it's ok. If you have the same issue as me, go here

I had that trouble last night. Java had asked for permission, and I said yes, but it still didn't work. I then used the simple uploader, and it worked fine.

I'm having issues uploading today. I installed the new Java version and now an error message appears. I tried the simple uploader and it uploaded but the images did not show up on the "add creation" page. It may just be a problem with my computer but I just wanted to see if anyone else had the same issue.

I updated my Java but it said it was blocked after I installed it and followed the correct procedures. I then did what I could to un-block it but it made no effect. So I turn to the simple uploader.

For some weird reason, it uploaded 5 out of 6 pictures perfectly, but the sixth did not work. I tried converting it to every format, but it would not work. This is what I was getting:
http://images.mocpages.com/user_images/101453/13899262781_SPLASH.jpg
For some odd reason, it would upload that picture just fine, but it must really hate the one picture.

Is there anything that I'm not doing right? Or should I just give up on that one picture?

Hey Caleb, I just looked over my security settings, and they were on high. Do I have to lower them to medium for me to use the new uploader? Because when I use the simple uploader, it puts all of my photos sideways. Thanks.

Yeah the issue is definitely with java, the latest update does not recognise the authentication certificates for this website.

What you need to do is go to the java control panel on your computer, if you are using windows 7 or 8 just go to the search facility and type "java control panel" and click the link.

Then select security and there is a section to add exceptions. Click ADD and then type the FULL web address including the http:// at the beginning. Now click ok and when you come back here the uoloader should work.

Simple uploader doesn't actually work. Stick with the "new and fancy" uploader, or get the embedded code from another site....

Simple uploader doesn't actually work.

You have to bear in mind that some new users may read that and wrongly assume you are giving the undisputed facts.

The simple uploader works just fine for a great many users, probably the overwhelming majority. It's also the only way for some people to upload since they can't use the new/fancy java based uploader.

Maybe his pictures have something wrong with them that is causing them to appear this way - upsidedown pictures is certainly not an issue that is commonly reported here. We don't know if he used a camera, a mobile phone, or what. Maybe there is a setting on the device which can be altered which will change the format the images are being stored.

I don't know what software you have on your computer, but maybe if you edit the pictures and re-save them, the problem might go away. Some devices store rotational information in the exif data attached to the picture so that the software using the picture can rotate it automatically. Perhaps removal of the exif data would solve the problem.

It's difficult to diagnose without access to one of the original pictures where this happens. If you wanted to, you could upload one of the affected pictures to a free image hosting site like imgur.com (so we can see the original jpg, and not the mocpages conversion) and post the link here, I'd be happy to take a look at it and see if I can see what's wrong for you.

To my knowledge the simple uploader is working. Do you have details of the problem you are experiencing?

When I use the regular up loader, (Not the simple one) it says that the security doesn't allow applications that run itself, (Java) so I do not know how to let Java run and use the regular up loader. With our camera, to upload it with the simple up loader, it's a real pain. This occurred when I got the new update from Java, too.

Well, I admit it has been at least a month since I've tried the old uploader, so things may have been fixed since then. But I would be able to select and technically upload the images. But when I got back to the screen that shows all the coding and stuff, there would be nothing. Its like I uploaded nothing. Its really strange. That said, I've found the new uploader to work by using Firefox, so that is my primary way of uploading. I wonder, how does the Flickr system work, and could it possibly work here...

Yeah, apologies for stating it that way; it may or may not work. I am using the new Apple Mavericks system, which also had a little trouble initially when I used the new uploader. I have a feeling that it may be that MP is a bit outdated for the new systems, so. Maybe time for an upgrade? Also, whenever I photoshop an image, I usually try to take a screenshot and save a .jpg version as well, just in case. Neither images work for the simple uploader, though once again, it has been some time since I've tried it, so if it has been recoded or changed in the past 2 months, then it may work now...

Go to the start button, Type in, Configure Java, and then click on "Configure Java", you will then have a window pop up. Click on the Security tab
Click on the Edit Site List button
Click the Add in the Exception Site List window, and type in www.mocpages.com

Well, it does work (with occasional brief hiccups). But I suspect you're correct, in your case it's probably to do with using an Apple. An apple a day leads MOCpages astray...

You should probably say which uploader you are using, and what exactly goes wrong.

As for videos, MOCpages itself won't host videos, so you have to host them on an approved video host, YouTube being arguably the best. There's a full list here:

http://www.mocpages.com/help/blog/2008/07/those-new-fangled-moving-pictures.html

Note: the advice on that page is out of date: for YouTube you have to use the iframe code now (the embed code only works if you edit it properly).

Regarding the uploader fix, my instructions were for windows7 and windows8, the method is the same. All versions of windows since vista require you to use the search bar to access the control panel, simply type Java Console into the search bar, then select the security section and type the mocpages web address including the "http://"; at the beginning.

If the exceptions list isn't displaying, then you are probably not running the latest version of Java and need to update from the Java website http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp.

That's something that was an issue earlier this month, I believe you can find a fix from Andros in one of the threads regarding it. You have to go into Java and manually allow Mocpages to work properly. It's really quite simple, once you do that it should be fixed.
