    Take Photo Widget: Error message - File Upload Failed

    Asked by fernandojose on July 02, 2017 at 02:44 AM



    The "Take a photo widget"  shows the camera live, allows to take the picture, but then fails to upload after pressing the green upload button. 


    I have tried it with the same result using:

    1. Chromebook: Chrome Browser

    2. Android: Chrome Browser and Firefox Browser

    3. Windows 10: Chrome Browser and Edge Browser


    The result has been the same with all browsers. It shows the live image, then takes the picture, shows the picture and then when you press the green upload button it tries for a while and then shows the message "File Upload Failed, Please try again"

    Please receive a screenshot of the issue attached to this message.


    In advance, thanks for your help.
