    Transloadit Widget Not Working Properly

    Asked by markashton on December 10, 2013 at 02:28 PM

    @mdikici ...

    ........ thankyou for kindly implementing a transloadit widget. I can see my requests are listened to ... so thanks for that.

    You wrote in the post: https://www.jotform.com/answers/298151-Widget-Test-Voice-Recorder-Doesn-t-Work

    here is transloadit plugin http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/transloadit

    and sampe form http://form.jotformpro.com/form/33426893266968

    i am aware of that there are much better ways to use it except putting a simple file input. If you have any suggestion i am eager to implement it.

    So I have tried the form and tried uploading an image ... indeed the "loader" looks good on the form.

    So, I created my own form, designed for smartphones, with a 320px width ....


    Mmmmm .... there are a couple of immediate problems ....

    Also, I had an internal server error on trying this on an Iphone ... is this because I hadn't added a transloadit API Key?

    Please pass to mdikici ... I will test this in real-time to get it right ... 

    Thanks mark

    Thanks for your advices i really appriciate it. By the way "Transloadit" text removed. I could not implement custom button style immediately because fist we need to arrange setup and button style wizard.Not only for this widget but also for others ability to customize button style may be very good. I will try to make it happen ASAP.

    BTW i made an upload through your form via chrome and it seems working :)

    Additionaly, I am thinking about making image upload with preview, multiupload and drag&drop maybe, all with Transloadit. (but i wish guys form Transloadit had made it, these can take a little time)

    Again thanks for your kind and constructive comments.

    Thanks for removing the Transloadit text from the widget.

    The below focuses on using Transloadit widget on smartphones ....

    So, I have tried the form with Transloadit widget on smartphones.

     There are a few things that are still not working properly ...


    The Transloadit Uploader Doesn't Fit To Screen


    Transloadit Loader Has Different Behaviour To Normal File Upload

    The Transloadit Loader goes straight to the camera roll ... is this intentional?
    Why do I ask?
    The jotform normal file upload field has different behaviour ... it gives the option of taking a photo or video... and Choose Existing .... on an Iphone

    I thought I'd let you know about this

    Transloadit Upload Still Says 'No Files Selected'

    This is confusing ... the upload takes place and yet it still says No Files chosen


    Once the visual is acceptable I shall move on to how a jotform user can use the Transloadit service with Jotform. In its current state it is not usable ... there is the issue of setting your templates so that the conversion that you want happens.

    Thanks ... Please come back to me so I can test.

    Regards Mark

    Has this been abandoned? This widget is not really fit for purpose yet.

    Any chance we can get this awesome upload working properly?

    Thanks mark

    Update- I just tested Transloadit- My Authkey failed:

    Doesn't look like this widget is working at all at the moment.
