Perch Asset Upload Progress


So it's not exactly a huge issue, but someone asked my today if a file was uploading or not when using Perch, and it reminded me that in Perch 2, uploads gave a progress bar to indicate how long the upload of each file will take.

Has this just been removed in Perch 3? Or is there possibly a way to activate this? As it would help give people have confidence that the upload process is happening as it should.

If not, could I make a request to add it back in?

Whereabouts? There's lots of ways to upload files within Perch.

Whilst uploading an image in a content region from a <perch:content type="image"/> field in the "select an asset" popup.

That used to be a sidebar on the right (in Perch 2) that would give you a small progress bar per file. Now, in the Perch 3 layout, the popup just shows a filename whilst it's being uploaded, then it disappears once upload is complete (giving you no idea of progress).

I'm pretty sure there's still a progress bar there, but I'll check.

Ah ok - if so, it may be that Perch 3 has new requirements to ensure it works?

Or maybe it just no longer works in Chrome in Perch 3?

Or maybe it's not auto enabled?

Either way, I've tested it across our 3 web servers (only on Chrome though) and it has no progress bar on any.

As I say, I'll need to check.

Hi Drew,

Did you find anything on this issue?
