[HanziQ][mod portal] Drag and drop uploading tries to download your file

Post by bobingabout » Fri Jan 19, 2018 1:00 am

As the title says.

when updating my mods, I drag the file from a folder, into the "select file to upload" area on the web page.
Before it always simply added the file ready to be uploaded when I pressed submit.
Now my browser tries to tell me it wants to download a file with the name I dropped onto the page.

Clicking on the area and selecting a file from the file menu works as expected.

This is browser-specific behavior; for example, Edge will display a no-drop icon instead of letting you drop and then trying to download the file.

I might reimplement this in the future, but not right now.
