Problem uploading images - system changed in last week?

  1. Everyone with the problem of not being able to upload your images - this has now been fixed! You may need to refresh, but you shouldn't have this issue again.

    Let us know right away if you do.

  2. eosresurfaces,

    Could you start a new thread, since that sounds like a different problem? I don't want other users who have the same problem as you to get lost on this thread :)

  3. sockmonkeyskitchen,

    If you delete photos, they will delete from your posts. They have to be in your media library to be seen. A quick way to test is to get the link to one of your photos and send it to someone who isn't able to view your blog (or post it here). If your blog is private, no one without permission should be able to see the image. If they CAN, we need to investigate further. If they CAN'T we are all set!

  4. Sorry...Now it is impossible..."Wordpress is not responding" message when I click "insert into post"... :(

  5. ilargia64,

    Can you try clearing your cache to see if this helps? If not, please let me know.

  6. Hi!!!
    Here Ilargia!
    Seems to work ok...Thanks a lot!!!

  7. Good morning here...Yesterday I went to bed...Today I tried and impossible...They are in my list library now, but it is impossible to insert them on the post...On that moment always the same message "wordpress is not working"..:( :(

  8. Hi ilargia64,

    I'll poke around your blog this morning to see what I can uncover. Thanks for your patience, and I'm sorry you keep having this issue!

    In the meantime, clear your cache again and see if that helps. You may want to test in Firefox or Chrome.

  9. Ilargia,

    I was able to add a post to your blog (set to private, so your users can't see it), and add images to it.

    Will you check to see if you can see it? You can delete it, as well.

  10. Hi zandyring, as requested,
    One of the posts that I was struggling with is this
    http://sevenleagueboots.wordpress.com/2012/12/01/grey-nomads-in-kerala-1-grey-what-in-where/
    if I click on the photo in Chrome it just gets highlighted. The button to edit the photo's settings is there but not the dynamic resize handles. But they are there in Firefox.
    My other problem is that I'm sure WordPress used to offer me an largest image size which was the same as the column width but now it offers the full size of the image which then displays distoprted to fit the column.
    You can enter a new image size in the advanced settings for that image but it doesn't automatically maintain the aspect ratio so you would have to do sums to work out the height and width. That might have been the case in the past but I never needed that dialog before as the editor always offered me a full-width option.
    This doesn't sound quite so problematic as some other people's difficulties but it's really making life a lot more difficult than it was.
    Thanks for your help
    Chris

    Zan - I deleted a couple photos and sure enough they came off of the blog too, just as you'd said. Thanks!
    I sure appreciate your help again!

  12. Chrisrust,

    Hi there - I'm sorry you're still having some issues with the new interface!

    if I click on the photo in Chrome it just gets highlighted. The button to edit the photo's settings is there but not the dynamic resize handles. But they are there in Firefox.

    This makes me both think you don't see the edit image icon, and that you do :) But I think what you mean is that you just don't see image resizing on the image itself. This is something that's web-kit-centric (web-kit is Firefox), so you will be able to use it in Firefox, but not in other browsers. It's one of those things that we are always chasing what the browsers are changing.

    My other problem is that I'm sure WordPress used to offer me an largest image size which was the same as the column width but now it offers the full size of the image which then displays distoprted to fit the column.

    Now, when you upload images, or add images to the post, you can edit the size right there in the Add Media interface (this was not the case just a few days ago - previously you had to go to your media library to make these edits). You'll see an "edit image" link next to the image thumbnail on the right. Using this functionality should help you not get distortion (it should do the calculation for you, in other words).

    This should help get you started in the right direction, but let me know if you're still having difficulties with distortion.

    Cheers!

  13. @zandyring-IMHO the link to edit the image is uncomfortably close to the delete link. Thanks for listening.

  14. @justjennifer,

    Great point - thanks! I'll pass it along :)
