My Name is***** will be helping you today. If I provide good service, you may ask for The-PC-Guy in your question title for your future needs.

did you get contacted by customer service, they said they were going to contact you to straighten the issue out so we could get the thing working
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Only an automatic email about 3 & half hours ago.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
i think they want you to reply and then they will open the question back up
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

That's not what their email suggested. I've put what you need back on a new orphaned page. Let's go with this thread - they don't seem very efficient at sorting problems out. You wanted to split over 2 questions anyway. Let me know asap when you get this and I'll delete the page.

http://googlmail.co.uk/orphan.htm

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Looks like there was a security issue with the 1st thread. I told you pop-ups kept coming up saying the question was opened to other experts. That did not happen during this 2nd thread.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
i cannot connect with the information you provided.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, I turned off the TeamViewer untill I heard a confirmation of receipt.

Please wait a few mins for me to get it back on.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

They have opened up this to other experts again

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
i can't control, that, but it is not actually opened to other experts.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Ok, but a whole page came up to tell me it was. Anyway, the details should work now. We are on the 3rd password ***** and the teamviewer is on.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
ok, can you post the details?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The details are here:

http://googlmail.co.uk/orphan.php

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The teamViewer is asking for a partners Id again

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
bingo
Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
fixed
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Teamviewer timed out. What have we acheived?

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
you said everything was fine?

are we all set?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Not sure what we need to do next. If wampserver good, can you or I continue with the uploader? I can leave a good tip and jetison the 1st Q if they don't get it sorted. Don't really want to start a 3rd thread.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
i thought you said the uploader was working now

We can pick this up tomarrow if it is not
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Can't see UpLoader in bar..Tired now so check further tomorrow.

Good night and many thanks.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
ok
Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
ok, so when we last spoke, you said everything was working.

So was there something else that was needed?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Phil here, When you are off-line it is not possible to
leave you a message: only option is to open the question to other
experts: you should get the message + a JA email alert. Reported 2 days ago
but n/a from j/a. My 1st thread unlocked now. Wampserver is working, I'm running a copy of the site in it, have tested
the working uploader examples and put the code they instruct into a test page
within my site files. Need help to go further though. Shall I close on this thread and use the other
to continue?

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
i am fine working on this thread.

if it says it is open to other experts, just ignore that

I do get your replies.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Great, but what I am saying is that the ja system does not work as they say it does. A CS woman did email me back to say that I should just leave you a message and you would get an email alert, but when I told her this does not work.......nothing. Anyway, nice to have you continue. I will need to start tv, set up a new password, and give you login on the orphan url, ok

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
yea, could you explain a little bit about what you want first. Maybe it will save some time.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

To be fair, I will need to pay for 2 threads/questions anyway. I'll sign this one off so you get paid and then let you know what I need on the now-unlocked one. OK?

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
i don't think you need to sign out,

you can just let me know here what you are looking for
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Great, thanks.... Well I am not getting very far with universal uploader. The instructions I can find are very lacking. If you could get in working within wamp with a location where the uploaded photos are stored, then I could hopefully use the same pattern to put the stuff online. I would use their single upload embedded-in-the-form version, but can't even find the files for the individual versions. I bought the licence today so could go ahead online right away when sorted.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
maybe it would be best just to create an uploader script from scratch, am I to understand that all you want is to have a form with a file upload box and nothing else?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I just paid over $200 for the license. It seems well developed so wish to go with that.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
well since I don't know anything about what you paid for, I am not sure what help I could be.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

You seemed to know about universal uploader in previous communications. I have put the whole file package including instructions @ http://googlmail.co.uk/universaluploader/ It says that it is easy so hopefully no problem.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
ill take a look later, I never mentioned that I knew anything about it, I was always under the impression, that we were just going to create a custom upload box and add it to your existing form.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

OK, wish I knew that before, but let's go with this software, if you don't mind. Thanks.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

PS. I had been thinking to mention possibly enlisting you for occasional further help via a bank tranfer deposit and email for communications. But if you are able to do stuff on-the-fly like custom uploader boxes, I may be able to market such a service for mutual benefit.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
do you think you can get your money back for this software?

I think it was a waste. A simple upload box that will store pictures in a folder, is something I can do reletively quickly and easily. Certain not worth whatever you paid for that software.

Am I correct that all you wanted to do was add an upload box to your existing form, the file would be stored and the rest of the text would be emailed?

Or was it more complicated than that?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

This is really all I need. If its easy, shall we do this and I'll try to get my money back?

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
sorry I don't follow. You just want me to do the upload for you instead?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, that is what I meant. Then I can contact the Universal Uploader people and try to get my money back.

Shall I set up tv and upload new details at .../orphan.htm so you can view?

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
not yet

let me make the script first.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

OK - thanks. Maybe I didn't need any of the wamp work of yesterday then?

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
you did
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Good to know!!!

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 2 years ago.
let me work on the script
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, ok, thanks...
