    Hello!! I am using my iPad to read and post here. I can't seem to figure out how to upload pics. When I go into the upload section at the top I can't click the choose file button to get to my photos on my iPad. The choose file button is grayed out. I know you can only upload jpeg, png & gif files but I thought the iPad was jpeg. Any help would be appreciate. Thank You

    Thank You so much for your help. I didn't see anything in the rules and then was just about to post to you when I saw the link you put in. We are very new to chickens (got our first 3 on Tuesday) and I am finding these forums very informative. Hopefully I will be able to post pics soon. Again Thank You for your help.

    Actually we're not sure that our upload system is compatible with iPads, but we'll look into it.

    Oh ok.... Can you please let me know if iPads are when you find out? If I CAN post pics using it I will let you know as well.

    Ya, that's above my payscale. I have no idea why the upload feature would work on a Mac, but not the iPhone or iPad.

    Well, since we're not intending to create a BYC app any time soon, I guess people will just have to use a workaround like uploading to a site that supports these devices and then using the IMG tags to show their pics on BYC, or getting their pics to a desktop computer.
