Gallery won't open & can't upload images

    I just upgraded to the new WordPress and now, when I try to upload an image to a page, it keeps coming back with an error message and I must ‘try again later’.

    I’m in a huge rush to get this done today, so rather put out.

    When I go to the gallery (in another tab), the image is there. However, when I open the image gallery within the page I want to post from (I.e. insert from gallery instead of just upload) it’s completely blank. It also won’t pick up the image from the URL.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this, or if this is just a WP error today?

    Hi justjennifer, as aforementioned, unfortunately, it won’t let me log on with my normal account, only my free blog, hence me writing here.

    Thanks for responding, mikedariano, I’ve tried uploading both .jpg and .png, to no avail :( Wondering if it’s an all round problem. Certainly seems like an actual error on the WP side, not so much something that I’m doing wrong, as it’s always worked before.
