Unable to post media
I also noticed that I’m no longer getting an option to just grab the link when I upload picture. You have to Insert to get the link. Not sure what’s the reason behind this change.
same problem here, i hope it’s just a glitch in the software and solved soon.
I notice that I now have to actively click on Post URL or File URL to create a thumbnail for images, but I like it much better this way. I also noticed that I can now see the size of the thumbnails. That’s an improvement.
Thanks for the help – just sorting out the URL does the trick.
the size thing is a nice update, but what’s the benefit of no default file url’s in the post?
can’t upload media either!
same here ! get to post page.. no tools there .. just two buttons not working. visual and html.. no other tools.. no media icon..no crap ! what is is the answer ? can anyone out there help ..
At the time to upload, even though I select Center, it doesn’t center it, unless I go back and edit the picture and Center it again. This should be fixed.
It would also be helpful to know the wisdom behind hiding the URL.
When you report a problem, please give us a direct link to your blog, either by linking your name to your blog as per the instructions at the top of the forum or just by typing in a link, starting with http.
I can’t post a picture to my blog, either. I ended up having to upload it to my WordPress account, a thing that I don’t like to do because of the limited space.
PS. Something weird is going on. I couldn’t link to a picture from another website (yeah, I know it was a hotlink, but the website was encouraging such hotlinks). I couldn’t post that picture using Live Writer, either. But when I uploaded the image to my account, I could post it, and when I linked to an image on my PictureTrail account, that worked, too. Am I inadvertently breaking some rule??
No, not at all. Weird, I posted something hotlinked (with permission) just a few hours ago and it worked just fine. Have you tried using the HTML (code) editor instead? It still has an IMG button to add an image.
(also: WP.com seems to be having problems loading properly, both my Write page and the forum)
I see I have to manually insert the link to an uploaded picture in order to have it open in a new window by clicking on “link to image button”. On this post two of the uploaded urls ended with .jpg, two ended with ?=and a number. In the case of the bottom photo that is ?=500.
When I deleted the ?=number of the 3rd image it opened correctly in a new window. I assume I could correct the bottom image in a similar way but would like to know what is going on and how to deal with it in the future. Can you help?
@wolferiver-3 Gigabytes of space is “limited”? If you need more, the yearly upgrade is more than quite reasonable. NAYY
I think I have over 700 images uploaded to just one of my several blogs, and so far have used no more than 3% of the space. It’s not something to worry about.
@sleepinghill, the ?=500 is because you set the width or height to be something other than the image had as a standard. If you leave that in, it will link to an image the same size as the post. When you delete it, it opens full-size.
my problem is fixed.. i had the anti-virus 209 virus.. what a creature it is ! got rid of it with a free download.. had to reinstall IE7 and google tools with antivirus.. got it back up.. running great untill whenever ! all media tools are working fine !
I’m noticing today that the Upload Media thing grey-screens for a VERY long time before coming up the first time you use it in a session. Wonder what they changed; I haven’t changed anything on this end.
Should of been a smily on the last post.
Goes without saying. It’s Monday, not Friday; I think they’re either three days behind or four days ahead.
