    Looks like someone has driven the forums off into a ditch. I was searching for a thread on wireless CarPlay head units and got this:

    I'm getting a security error trying to upload an iPhone screen shot. :-/

    I've tried it on both safari and chrome from my iMac. The image uploads 100%, then during the processing, it errors out on me every time.

    Hmm. The security error is a cross scripting protection. It sometimes happens when your session / login expires. In those cases, trying again should fix. Not sure what would cause it regularly.

    We are looking at a forum upgrade soon so that may fix any weird bugs.

    I've tried at least a dozen times, and a couple of those were when I switched browsers, which required me to log in again. :-/

    Also tried it from my iPhone, and got the same error there.

    I suppose I could try manually logging out from every session I'm logged in from (iPhone, iPad, iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook Pro) and then try again and see what happens .. but that would suck to have to do that all the time.

    If you could use help working on a forum upgrade, lemme know. I might be able to spare some cycles. :)

    Thanks. We have some plugins that need to be ported to the new version which is what is the bottleneck.
