Cannot upload images to blog without an an error, how can I fix this?

  1. When attempting to upload an image into a blog post I always get an error message telling me that the image file is empty and to upload a more substantial file. I have tried multiple file types and file sizes and I always get the same error message and my image does not upload. I've already cleared my browser cache and deleted the cookies from my computer. What else can I try?

    The blog I need help with is dallasyogaproject.wordpress.com.

  2. You ought to be able to upload files in two ways: by going to Media → Add New http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/media-add-new/ from your dashboard or by clicking the new Add Media button http://en.support.wordpress.com/add-media/ right above the editing area of a page or a post.

  3. If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If it’s still happening, let us know exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/ and also post any error reports you get.
