    I am unable to upload video files (via dashboard, add new: from my computer, url, youtube)

    Also, can I:
    -delete the theme and wordpress info from the pages?
    -move my categories to be placed above the FB box?

    Thank you!

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

    Clear your browser cache and cookies and if your browser version is outdated please upgrade it here.

    Are you following these instructions?
    youtube shortcode
    Please try using them again because the youtube shortcode works every time for me.

  3. Also, can I:
    -delete the theme and wordpress info from the pages?

    You cannot delete the footer credits. This is clearly stated here:

    May I remove the ‘Blog at WordPress.com’ credit in my site’s footer?
    Although the Custom Design Upgrade certainly grants you the capability to hide the credit from your site’s footer, you are not permitted to do so. Even our VIP bloggers are required to maintain the credit. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

    -move my categories to be placed above the FB box?

    Yes. Go here > Appearnce > Widgets and move the Categories widget so it's above the FB likebox widget. Note: you click the Categories widget to open it and configure it. Then click "Save" and "Close".

    My browser was updated to IE 9 last week. I just cleared the browser cookies and media files still do not upload.

    Thank you for the other information!

  5. If you did not experience success with the youtube shortcode then simply post the link to the youtube video here and I will provide you with the shortcode. Youtube shortcodes work every time, provided you aren't attempting to embed a youtube from a channel.

  6. I checked out your blog and found this youtube link http://www.youtube.com/sisterhoodagenda#p/a/f/1/Cp0ESS9V-wI
    It's a link to a channel and it cannot be embedded into your blog. You can only post a link to it as you have done in your post.

    Thank you for the clarification about youtube videos.

    I was hoping to add video files from my computer. When I attempt to add them via dashboard, media, add new, nothing happens. (I am able to add graphic image media easily).

    These files are wmp format.

    Thanks again.

  8. I was hoping to add video files from my computer.

    The VideoPress upgrade allows you to upload videos from your computer for hosting and playback directly within your blog. The VideoPress upgrade costs $59.97 per year and per blog, and can be purchased at VideoPress.com or under Store in your Dashboard. http://en.support.wordpress.com/videopress/

    I already purchased the value bundle, which has the videopress upgrade.

  10. VideoPress supports MP4 (.mp4, .m4v), QuickTime movies (.mov), Windows Media Video (.wmv), Audio Video Interleave (.avi), MPEG (.mpg), Ogg (.ogv), 3GPP (.3gp) and 3GPP2 (.3g2). http://en.support.wordpress.com/videopress/#additional-info

    If you cannot succeed by using the videopress instructions in the support documentation then you will have to contact Staff for assistance.

    Sorry, I meant wmv format! These files won't upload.

  12. I'm sorry I can't help you. Unless another Volunteer can determine what the problem is and provide a solution to it you will need to contact Staff for assistance.

  13. Nothing happens when you try to upload? Do you not get a spinning icon or anything?

    I get nothing when I upload. It's very strange....

  15. Are you using the new uploader or the old style one? I mean, can you just drag the file into the upload box, or are you clicking to find it on your computer? that might make the difference.

    I was using the old style one, mostly. I am using IE9 and I didn't think that the new uploader was compatible. Yesterday, I tried both and neither worked. I also tried with firefox!

    Thank you for the suggestion.
