Reader and adding images not working

  1. Firstly when I go to my reader page (the one with the buttons for 'my blogs', 'freshly pressed' etc) it have nothing except the buttons along the top. When I click any of the button, say to add a new post, the screen starts to do go there but then just white screens. I then have to back button or re-login to wordpress.
    My second issue is that I cannot add images or create a gallery using the add media button when posting. Once I write a post I click the add media button and the insert image screen comes up. However from there on in nothing can be done. I cant upload or drag an image from my computer nor can I add one from the images from my media library. I now have two posts that I cannot add images to.

    I have done everything that has been mentioned on the forums, eg: clearing caches, disabling plugins, trying different computers and browsers etc. It is the same no matter what I do.
    I am using wordpress on Windows XP and on Firefox 20. I run wordpress through a VPN as I am currently living in China.
    I have posted this last week on the forums and didnt get one response.
    I am really hoping someone can help me, as I really need to add these images.
    Thanks in advance

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

  2. Hi there!

    It sounds like you might be getting partially blocked, despite your VPN. China has been known to block WordPress.com blogs, and there is nothing that we can do about this. As a workaround, people have used a VPN or proxy to access their 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 would reconfigure your VPN to make sure that everything is working properly there and try the Opera browser to see if that helps.

  3. Hi there,
    Thanks for your reply. i tried opera turbo and unfortunately no luck there. Secondly I tried to download the torproject but my computer refused to complete the install for some reason. Lastly looking at VPNs and proxies, I already pay for a VPN so that I can access blocked pages in China, it just seems weird that I can do everything else on my blog, e.g upload images to my library, write and post blogs and access the forum, yet I cannot add images to my posts or access the wordpress reader page. If there is anyone else out there who might be able to shed some light it would be great.

  4. Unfortunately, with the strict blocking that China puts in place and constantly monitors, there really isn't anything more we can do on our end to troubleshoot why you're having these issues.

    Best of luck.
