Can't upload images (4 posts)

    I am suddenly unable to upload any images. Using the browser upload, I can find the image and click to upload, but nothing happens. Using the Flash uploader, I either get an error message that the image only partially loaded, or that I don't have the necessary permissions. I've uploaded many images in the past, so I can't figure out why it's not working now. Any suggestions?

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.

    Thanks for the quick reply, but where would I make those changes? Sorry, I'm fairly new to WordPress.

    You would need to access your site's folders using FTP or a similar tool. See the link I posted above for more information.
