    It just says "HTTP Error"

  7. Thanks. I was hoping a number would be provided but not to worry as Staff will assist as soon as they can.

  8. Do you also encounter this issue in a different browser? for example Firefox or Internet Explorer? Have you also tried uploading media from a different Internet connection?

    Looking forward to your reply.

  9. I'm also having the same problem on my blog. I'm living in China and I have not had success uploading images on to my blog posts, while using Astril (VPN service provider).

  10. @beaubarbe888 China has been known to block WordPress.com blogs, and there is nothing that we can do about this. As a workaround, you can try using a VPN or proxy to access the blog. The following links provide some options that you may be able to explore and/or use: https://www.intl-alliance.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_119 https://www.torproject.org/

    We have also heard that some users have had luck simply by using Opera Turbo: http://www.opera.com/browser/turbo/

    I really hope this helps and you'll find a way to access/update your blog!
