Can't upload new media

  1. For the last few days I have been unable to upload new photographs to my blog. Each time I try I get a message to say that Internet Explorer has stopped working, then it crashes out of WordPress. I am well within my upload limit.

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks Anne

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

  2. If you are using an IE browser in compatibility mode please disable that mode. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

  3. Please work through these steps below and then report your specifics back to us.

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

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/

    (a) Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

    If applicable see here for instructions on how to clear the cache for Chrome and Safari on the iPad:

    (b) Make sure that you have both third-party cookies enabled and JavaScript enabled

    (c) Disable all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily.

    (d) Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    Add both *.wordpress.com and *.wp.com to your list of trusted sites under the Security tab. Make sure to uncheck the box for “Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone.” http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/#frequently-asked-questions

    6. If you are not successful let us know:
    (a) How you are connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com.
    (b) Exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/
    (c) And what any error reports you receive state.

  4. I have checked the settings suggested above, added the wordpress sites to the trusted sights and that seems to have done the trick, photos now uploaded.

    Thank you

  5. Hooray! I love happy endings. Best wishes with your blog.
