    The same has just happened to me…

    I have 13 posts with perfect links to photos, but my latest post just shows a little blue box with a question mark.

    When I go to Manage–Media Library, all the previous photos are there, but the most recent upload is showing the little blue question mark box, also…

    What gives?

    I don’t think I did anything different with this photo during upload…

    I am using the new Monotone theme and my site is at:

    There’s been a recent discussion of image challenges in some threads.

    And remember, you can ONLY put one photo per post in Monotone.

    Can you please provide a link to a post that demonstrates the problem.

    I’d provide a link, except I finally got frustrated and deleted the post.

    After searching through advice in other forum posts, I did the following…

    (I am using a Mac and the Safari browser, btw. Also, I use the simple text editor for all my posts, but am using the flash uploader. I am definitely only adding one photo per post.):

    1) I wrote the title of the post.
    2) Before typing any text, I clicked on the add image icon.
    3) I browsed photos on my computer and double clicked on one.
    4) The photo uploaded, and I copied the url from the info box.
    5) Instead of clicking “insert into post” (which used to work), I clicked on “save changes”.
    6) I added the image to the post using the IMG button on the simple text editor, pasting in the url I had copied when uploading the image.
    7) I saved the post. Checked the preview. All was good.
    8) I added a little text under the photo and saved again.

    So far, the image is now appearing in the post:

    I will say that I am slightly nervous, though, as previously the image was visible in the post at first, but then never again.

    At any rate, thanks for the intent to help… much appreciated!
