Featured Image Issue (5 posts)

    Hello, I just recently set up my website with WordPress and I am trying to set a featured image. However, I keep running into the following message when trying to upload from my computer:

    Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2012/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    So I tried to set it by uploading an image by URL. However, I noticed that's not possible either.

    Is there any way I can set the featured image manually by code or something? Otherwise, I'm not entirely sure how to resolve the error message.

    The website in question is:

    Thank you.

    I think the message is clear : You need to chmod (change permission) on the parent directory (here /uploads/) via FTP

    I read about the issue and I read that changing the permission 755 should fix it. However, I did make that change and I'm still seeing the same error.

    have you checked that when you change permission it fix at value 755 after disconnexion/reconnexion? If yes you'll need to contact your web hoster i think

    Was able to resolve it through web host. I think a specific directory needed its permissions changed.

    Thank you!
