    I am a newbie to blogs and used the new 1.5 default template to create my blog:

    How do I add the ability to upload photos to this?
    Registered users will be uploading their photos.

    Options > Miscellaneous, check "Allow File Uploads". You'll want to set rest of the upload options there, as well.

    See the plugin page for some options on improving the default upload functionality in WordPress:

    Thank you, I found it.

    However I got the following message when clicking to upload:
    >>It doesn't look like you can use the file upload feature at this time because the directory you have specified (/home/tipoftex/public_html/wp-content) doesn't appear to be writable by WordPress. Check the permissions on the directory and for typos.<<

    I am not sure where to fix this.

    You should try my buddy's gallery-plugin, RumGallery: http://rummanddan.dk/plugins/rumgallery/
    Very simple, no database! :)

    you are getting that message, i think, because you have not set the permissions (CHMOD) correctly for your wp-content folder. you can change this with an ftp program or something simliar...
