en WordPress.com Forums › Support Featured Image Issue Author Posts November 30, 2012 at 9:35 am #1084589 nagareterutakiMember Hello, I just recently set up my website with WordPress and I am trying to set a featured image. However, I keep running into the following message when trying to upload from my computer: Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2012/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server? So I tried to set it by uploading an image by URL. However, I noticed that’s not possible either. Is there any way I can set the featured image manually by code or something? Otherwise, I’m not entirely sure how to resolve the error message. The website in question is: http://oolongcha.net Thank you.
