Add / insert media - follow KISS-principle (5 posts)

    "The KISS principle (acronym for "Keep It Simple, Stupid") states that design simplicity should be a key goal and unnecessary complexity avoided." (WIKIPEDIA).
    The new feature to insert media is very nice - if it works.
    At home, with my own computer, it works.
    At work, part of a local-area-network, it doesn't work!
    Probably, this isn't a mistake in WP2.5.1, probably there is something wrong with our network, but this is the reason why I ask you to follow the KISS-principle. The probability that everything works fine on every platform, rises with simplicity!

    Simple is not pretty, nor always easy to use.

    Let me try to describe my problem with 'add media' (my English is very poor, sorry!) at work.
    The problem isn't the upload of a single image. This works. But if you try to insert the image, there is only a white box and nothing happens.
    I also noticed today, that the browser (FF2.x and IE7) are all the time busy with loading the write-panel-page.
    At home, I have no problems. Why I mention KISS? Because for me it isn't the question how pretty the insert-image-procedure is, I have to teach my colleagues how to insert images into their articles. And I have to do this on the damned network where I work. With WP older than 2.5 I had no problems with that. I admit, the new procedure is prettier, but the old one worked, even with our strange network. So I would like to have a bullet-proof add-media-feature, working without Java-Script, AJAX, ... .
    To make the thing more pretty, you can extend it with plugins!

    Still, try some of the fixes in that thread. Some of the same issues can cause either problem.

    If you have problems on one machine and not on another, then it may be a caching issue (step 2 from that thread). Especially if you just recently upgraded.

    Thank you for the quick answer! I removed all files of the /wp-content/uploads/js_cache directory. Now I am eager to find out what awaits me next week at work!
