View Full Version : Can't upload images
06-24-2010, 07:59 AM
Hi, I'm using Wordpress 3.0 and I have problems with uploading images. Images are filed in 'Library', but I can't (pre)view them end see them in my posts.
Hope somebody can help! Thanks, Marjan

Hey MK and welcome to WebProWorld.com.
So, in your wordpress settings, under Media, then under Uploading Files you have the following correct?
Also, under wordpress settings, under General and then under wordpress address (URL) and Site address (URL), everything is right and proper correct?
Have you changed your blog address lately or anything? Are the images actually in the library? Can you navigate to them via your browser to youdomain.com/wp-content/uploads ?
Let me know...

What's the url? Are there any images on the blogs homepage? Where are they stored?
If you know you have an image file somewhere, see if you can put that in a post. Just title (test) and content (<img src="http://www.mydomain.com/images/myimage.gif" align="middle" alt="my symbol" />.)
See what happens. I don't have any experience with "Library". But you should certainly be able to link any image stored in your domains directory.

Thanks for your reply. I checked the settings and they're all okay.
I can't navigate to the images via businessblunders.nl/wp-content/uploads
I also can't link the images which are stored in 'Library'. I can link images from another website, but I guess this must also be possible in WP.
Thanks in advance! Regards, Marjan

OK from what you've told me I believe you may have a file permissions problem. This page from wordpress about changing file permissions (http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions) will get you on the right direction of seeing if this is indeed your problem and how to fix the problem too.
Let us know how things go with this...

That little magnifying glass on the search bar is coming from - <div><input type="image" src="http://businessblunders.nl/wp-content/themes/monochrome/img/search_button.gif" alt="Search from this blog." title="Search from this blog." id="search_button" /></div>
So you know you can link images from your domain directory. I don't know about the "Library" but you can make an image folder and upload images to it. You could make it - "businessblunders.nl/wp-content/themes/images/" - or whatever makes sense to you.
