Hi Gary, 

 

I wanted to check if the issue persists if you try clearing your cookies, or using a different browser to see if the issue persists? Let me know so that I can help you further!

Still not working and I use Chrome and always have done, so it should be working on there, clear my cookies all the time and as others are having the same issue I guess its a glitch at Upworks end

Avery,

 

Here's what we'd all just like to know. Is Upwork forcing us to create a specialized profile when we go to edit, add, remove or whatever with our *portfolios?

 

This is my understanding - that we (once again) have no choice in the matter. If Upworks decides we all need specialized profiles (which we DON'T), this then means that I can no longer add to, remove, or upload new samples to my portfolio. Nothing to do with cookies or cache.

 

*A straight yes or no to this question will be appreciated.

Hi,

I am having the same experience of not being able to upload work.  I am just starting with Upwork so I have as yet nothing for a prospective employer to see.  That means Upwork is not useful at all in finding work.  Seems like this problem has been going on for at least 5 or 6 months.  

Do we have any resolution?

Peace,

Asha Melanie

Hi Melanie, 

Are you referring to adding portoflio items to your profile? Once you have setup your Specialized Profile, you should be able to add portfolios to your Specialized Profile, General Profile, or both.

Its been years since i worked on upwork, when i worked it was odesk,

So after returning here i verified my profile and started to add portfolio items at my profile.

 

But now i can't add any portfolio items in my general profile, it forced me to create specialized profile and after creating it, it only allows to add or even edit portfolio items to specified profiles, 

Plus it seems downloading images doesn't work as well, it downloads without any extension and fails to open in image viewer or editor.

 

Is anyone else having same issues?

and yes odesk was 100 times better than this, i can't contact customer support nor can create tickets, how beautiful is that for a company that it makes money because of freelancers and they can't contact support when they need to, never seen any company doing this so far except this one.

Hi Parth, and Gary, 

I was able to replicate your issue. I'll go ahead and look into this and get back to you once I have more information.
