WordPress not allowing me to add pictures?

    I’ve been using WordPress for nearly a year and never had this problem, but today I wrote a new post and tried to add some pictures and they won’t show up. If I attempt to insert a picture to the post, it’ll appear in visual edit mode, but not in HTML edit mode or preview. I tried several different pictures to make sure it wasn’t a problem with the image file itself, and I even copied and pasted the entire post into a different draft to see if that would help. No luck. Also, I managed to add a gif with no problems, and I haven’t changed the template or anything.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is impendingdawn.wordpress.com.



    Hello there,
    Which browser and version of it are your using? Have you tried any troubleshooting?

    Accepted file types for images are:

    I’m using Internet Explorer 8. I upgraded it to Explorer 9 to see if that helped, but it didn’t, so I went back to 8 and cleared the browser cache and cookies. All the files are .jpeg, so that’s not the issue. I also read the troubleshooting article before posting on the forum, but none of the points were applicable.



    What exactly do you experience?
    Example: I click ___ and then ___ happens


    I go through the regular actions for adding a picture… Add an image, select files, insert into post. I can resize and everything in visual mode, but the image disappears as soon as I try to preview it or if I go into HTML edit mode. I tried publishing it without previewing anything to see if that would help, but it didn’t.



    If your upgrade to IE9 you may be successful, or if you try another browser like Firefox 4.0 Here’s the link to report your problem to Staff. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
