After having to re-insert all the pictures on the posts I did last weekend and all 30 odd pictures in my gallery so that I could change them to media file after the recent update I find today that they are all back to behaving as attachment pages.
I have checked and all the images have been inserted as media files and yet I find that my page stats is showing dozens of entries for clicks on my pictures which I don't want as it is messy and infuriating. I want them in my clicks stats.
Now it is even worse because I have been informed that when people access my blog from google image searches they are being directed to a page with just a picture on it instead of my technical blog. They are not wordpress users and can't see any obvious way to get to the technical blog so they have quit the site. I have double checked this and they are correct. Images that I know I loaded as media files and which used to show as larger images from a google picture search and when closed down would take the user into the technical blog that the picture was related too, are now taking them to the attachment page.
As 90% of my visitors come from google image searches and they are not wordpress users this is causing them alot of hassle. My blog is there to provide good technical help to a small group of people. I am not interested in having a zillion hits from uninterested people, I'm looking for people to come to my blog and leave having felt they have learnt something or that they have answered a question they had and many of these users are not necessarily very IT literate so this attachment page issue is a major problem to me.
I'm sure this was working yesterday and seems to have broken again as I checked some of these images myself and they were behaving correctly. Has a new 'bug fix' release been done that has now broken things again?
If this issue remains for long then I'll have to look at moving my blog somewhere else.
The blog I need help with is mud4fun.wordpress.com.
