Hi Eric and pharington,
I'm not certain what you mean by "upload an image" and I don't mean an
upload from the user's own harddisk as with an edit box for the path
So to clarify: rather I supply the user with a form that has an 'img'
tag to an image on another site and which the user can see (rendered).
If the user submits the form I get the server to itself fetch the
image from the other server but I am exploring the possibility of
directly uploading what is in the client's browser to my rails server
avoiding that second fetch from the other server. It won't save my
rails server bandwidth but it will save the other server.
security' mention, but I'm not sure.
Am I'm stumbling over the cross-site restrictions, irrespective of
