I would like to upload Loopy-format problems I have created, but at the moment cannot even upload problems created by Loopy itself.  For example, this is a 5x3 problem created, solved and saved by Loopy.  When I try to upload it I get a message that it does not contain a solution.

When I reload the created-but-unsolved problem and solve it by hand I get the below, which records the solution as a sequence of moves.  Uploading this version does not give an error message, but instead takes me to the blank 10x10 form for manual problem entry.  Solving both by Loopy and by hand does not help either.  Line ends are <CR><LF>, no other control characters.  Any apparent line break in "SOLVE   :105" has been added by the forum.

Thoughts?

Can confirm that this doesn't work for me, either. Uploading any loopy save file, either from an old loopy version or from the most recent version, just loads the default empty 10x10 grid.

Looks like there was a bug, obviously not something anyone's tried to do for a while! Hopefully it's fixed and working again now.

Thanks!  I'll give it a go.
