    Hi there,

    We're experiencing some issues with image uploading particularly in IE. Could you let me know the following to help troubleshoot?

    1. When you're uploading images, are you uploading to the WordPress.com Editor or to your Dashboard? The URL in your address bar will help you tell the difference:

      WordPress.com Editor - http://wordpress.com/post

      Dashboard - http://jeremeyduvall.wordpress.com/wp-admin

    2. Can you try another browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox?
    3. Can you try updating your version of Internet Explorer? As Timethief mentioned, you can find up-to-date browser versions at browsehappy.com.

    I appreciate your help! I'll let you know as soon as we know more.

  4. Hi

    When I am trying to upload images it is from:

    https://lauramarie363.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php (dashboard).

    As I use a work laptop I am unable to use another browser however I have asked for my Internet Explorer to be upgraded so I am hoping this may help.

    I will keep you updated.

    Laura

    Please let me know if trying another browser or the upgrade to IE helps!
