Subject: Re: Drop attachments here... 

I just used my own account to test the "Drag&Drop" function in this forum ,  and it failed.  In our case, we need to upload ten more images into logbook at once, it's more effective to use "Drag&Drop" than "Browse&Upload" feature for "Browse&Upload" only can choose one attachment at once, but "Drag&Drop" can choose several attachments at once. The admin user can use this feature, but non-admin user not in our site. I did run the elog server as  user "root". I'm not sure it is related to the problem.

I can't confirm this behavoiur. In our instance, every user can use the attachment function of the elog.
Either through "Drag&Drop" or "Browse&Upload" in the entry editor.

What do you mean by "root" user?
The elog can have serveral admin users, but this behaviour is equal for admin and non-admin users.
You should not run the elog server as user "root" of the machine for security reason, but also for issues with file permissions.

The function of "Drop attachments here..." is only for root user? I'd like it could be used by all users.
