Error uploading file

Posted 05 May 2014 - 04:59 AM

Sorry for this question, but I don't know where to put it.
So, my problem is that I cannot upload a rar file when I post a question. It gives me this error: Error. No file was selected for upload. What am I doing wrong?

Try a ZIP instead. I'm not sure if RAR files are permitted file types. I just tried to upload a file and was successful in doing such.

Thanks for answering. I tried a zip, then a 7z and I get the same error. I can upload a txt though.

Can you upload screenshots of the error. If not, I will shoot you my email via PM and you can forward them to me. I will pass them along to the webmaster.

Thank you very much!
I should add that I get this error both in Mozilla and Chrome.

Also check the size of the file you're trying to attach. It could be bigger than the limit you're allowed.
