Why is my blog rejecting images today?

    why won't my polyvore set upload properly? I have done it many times, but today it won't upload, it seems glitchy
    Also, my images that I uploaded to my laptop today won't upload into wordpress either. My blog seems to be rejecting images of any sort today?!

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

  2. If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If it’s still happening, let us know exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/ and also post any error reports you get.

    I believe I have tried everything you suggested and to no avail. And now more weirdness has cropped up, lots more! I have some old blogs that I have never posted to and don't use and I just realized all of the content I wanted to post to my new blog has somehow unbeknownst to me posted to one of my old blogs, including things I didn't even try to post anywhere and even some stuff that wasn't a blog post at all but just a link to a product.
    I am so confused!

  4. Exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using please?

  5. edit: "you’re" was meant to be "you"

    Thank you, I also was wondering if anyone can tell me why on Polyvore my profile will only link to one particular blog of mine on wordpress but not the one I want and not the one I entered in.

  9. There is only one blog that can be linked to any username account. You choose which WordPress.com blog you link to your username when you set a primary blog. You can change the primary blog but note that the chnage is not retroactive. All comments left previous to the change remain linked to the primary blog they were linked to prior to the chnage.

    Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Thank you, I think I did that a few minutes ago and it was curious because the blog that was set as my primary blog is not the blog that my polyvore account keeps wanting to link to.....? I am in too deep for my own limited knowledge!

    Update: I resolved the Polyvore issue but I am having trouble basically uploading any original images to the blog or embed any URLs of images into my posts or through the image uploader in any way. If I copy a link and try to post it any way it either shows up as nothing or shows up as the URL.

  12. I am using Firefox 20.0.1 and since last friday my blog rejects images also, either if I insert them manualy or via the media uploader. Can you help, please?

    Yep, that's what's been happening to me since yesterday morning...it's frustrating!

  14. This thread is tagged for Staff. They work forward from the threads with the earliest dates first. Please be patient while waiting.

  15. What are the URLs of the blogs you can't upload to?

  17. I noticed that you're using IE 10. Just to rule-out a browser-specific issue, would you please try a different browser, like Chrome or Firefox?

  18. I've tried with Chrome and Firefox with the same result. The problem persists...

  19. Thanks, and what is the file extension on the images? .jpg, .png, etc.

  20. daisychainvintage
    Member

    same, and my files are jpg

  21. I'm not seeing any problem myself at the moment. Are you seeing any error messages? If so, would you please quote the error messages?

    Also, are you trying to upload these via the Add Media button when writing a post or page, or Media -> Add New in your blog's Dashboard?

  22. Today is working well again, after 5 days without being able to insert images to posts. Thank you to whoever fixed it!

    I guess I'm confused, are you saying that none of my posts has an error message? I have not posted once I realized my images wouldn't post. The problem started on Sunday and once the problem started I have not made any new posts, I wouldn't post anything that showed an error message.
    I tried putting linked images into a post using the clipper tool and also tried uploading images from my polyvore account via the media button on wordpress and then also images from my own computer, photos I took and uploaded via the media uploader and that wouldn't work, basically images will not show up on my blog page in any format.
    I don't really know how better to explain it than that, I'm sorry!

    I will try all avenues when I have a chance today and see if mine is also working again.

  25. I guess I'm confused, are you saying that none of my posts has an error message?

    Right, I'm not seeing any problem, so maybe the issue was temporary. If you do see it again, please let me know if an error message appears and what it is.

    checked my blog, tried to just place a link to an image from the web into the body of a post, no dice.
    Tried to add an image from my computer that I uploaded through the media uploader, no dice.
    Tried to go through the 'add new media' and insert an image, no dice.
    It always shows up as an address, not an image or simply blank, nothing there at all.

  27. Is the image already uploaded to your Media Library? If so, what is the title of the image?

    I did upload one image to my media library, but then it said I was using to much of my capacity so I deleted it, but only after I tried to plant that in a post too, to no avail.

  29. Did you try uploading the image to http://raindropsandrotini.wordpress.com/ ?

    That blog is using 0% of its available 3 GB of space.

    I know it is, I deleted the one image I had uploaded. But yes, I have tried that, that's what I was trying to explain, I'm sorry, I'm not very fluent in computer lingo but yes, I have tried to insert images via that route and like I said, everything I have tried still ends up in the same result which is either an address showing up in lieu of the image or nothing showing up at all.
