Adding Media - Error Files Don't Exist?

  1. When i try to add media to a post it goes through the progress bar then comes up with an error that the files don't exist and to upload something more substantial.

    i have tried multiple formats jpeg, tif, psd etc and all have the same issue.
    Files are between 1-7mb

    Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is thelongandshort.com.

    Files are between 1-7mb

    That is tremendously huge and is probably choking the system.

    Try a .jpg that's 100K or less and see if it works.

  3. Nope just tried a small image and same error

    Error logo_main.png
    File is empty. Please upload something more substantial.

  4. Define "small" please.

  5. 86kb

  6. also tried PNG and JPEG

  7. Hmm, what browser are you using? And are you perchance using an app or ipad or something? There are some reports of issues with those.

  8. Using Safari on an Imac
    I'll try Firefox

  9. There have been reports of issues with Safari lately. If FF works better for you, that's good to know. Try Safari again after their next version to see if they've made it WP.com compatible.
