    Just chat with one of the staff, and there is some issues with the image upload and it has been solved, but it will take ‘some’ (undefined) time for the uploaded images to be processed and show up because there are millions of websites uploading many images.

    Try tomorrow.

    The same problem here. I’ve just noticed. Is it maintenance issue?

    My blog uses the Highwind theme, and I’m encountering the same problem in the middle of writing my latest draft. So it looks like a problem with WordPress itself.

    I’m having this problem too. Hope it’s resolved soon.

    I’ve been having issues loading images to WordPress. I tested loading to other places (same images) like Facebook, my own website and G+ and there are no problems. Uploading to WP is taking way too long and sometimes doesn’t even finish the upload. Images have a question mark or some don’t have anything and never show up. I keep having to delete my uploads and start again. Does anybody know what’s going on here?

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

    Since many of us don’t have time to read all the replies I’m hoping the all caps will attract notice to this re-post of the answer kindly provided above:

    I’m glad I am not the only one. I just wasted 2 hours trying to post. I see that it is being fixed, but it will take time to roll into effect world wide. I will try again later on.

    I’ve used my WordPress site at https://alymcf.wordpress.com for years and suddenly I’m having an issue uploading images and don’t know why. Instead of seeing the image in the library I get a broken link or broken image icon in the space the thumbnail should be. There is no error message. And of course the image won’t come into my post either if I try to insert it.

    I have only used 17% of my space,

    Here is the link to one of the images that is not working:

    and another
    https://alymcf.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/max2.jpg
    The images are not overly large. Less than 1 MB.

    and here is a link to an image that does work:
    https://alymcf.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/scrabble.jpg

    As you can see it’s like the new images just aren’t making it up there.

    I’m using the Reddle theme.

    Hi everyone!

    We are experiencing some issues with media uploads currently. Your media is not lost! It’s just in a queue as our system has a backlog of media to process. :(

    I’ve got a thread here where I will post updates:

    https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/media-uploading-issues

    You do not need to upload the media again, it will appear correctly within a few hours. Please let me know if you have questions about this!

    I’ve just responded to all the ones in the ‘image issues’ tag with links back to my sticky post. I’ll go through your other tags as well. :)

    It looked like it! Lots of thanks! Definitely made my triaging job much easier. :)

    For those of you in this thread who are not following the sticky post:

    Uploads are back to normal! If you’re having residual issues with your media uploads, please leave a note and I’ll follow up over the next day or two. :)

    I’m going to close this thread. Please head over to the sticky post here if you’re still having issues:
