Help: I can only add images to my blog at FULL SIZE (8 posts)

    I go to upload my images in WordPress 2.7 and I have never had a problem with it before until now for some reason.

    When I upload pictures, it used to always give the option (as it should) if I wanted it to be thumbnail, medium, large, or full sized.

    Now I am only getting the option of FULL SIZE and it says (0 x 0) next to it in parentheses.

    I have read many forum posts and haven't read anything that shows promising fixes for this. Can anyone please help me? I am fixing to blog and don't want to manually change the size of the pictures and I don't want to install a different plugin because I like the default WordPress image uploader.

    Thanks!

    Well, I don't about this, but you can change the it from the HTML layout of the image. You will have to change the value of size attribute.

    Try resizing the pictures to a smaller size before you import. I had this issue and apparently GD had trouble resizing images that were too large. For me,I was able to get it working by posting images 600 px wide.

    I know how to change it manually but that is a much slower and unnecessary way to do things.

    And I tried resizing the pictures, but it didn't work. Besides, I have used the same sized pictures all along and it just stopped working all of the sudden.

    Thank you all for your replies thus far though.

    Anyone else have an idea? :)

    Hey, I want everyone to know that I discovered the problem and fixed it.

    I had installed the PodPress plugin which makes it possible to upload your own MP3's and put them on iTunes. Well, somehow, I don't know why, that is the plugin that was causing the problem with the pictures. It made it so I couldn't change the picture size. So I deleted that plugin and now it works. Go figure, huh? I hope this helps anyone out there that has had this problem.

    I am having this problem too and also have the PodPress plugin. I really don't want to have to disable it since I like to podcast band interviews. Anyone know of a fix that doesn't require disabling the plugin? Perhaps I should find another podcasting tool that doesn't break this.

    I am having the same problem as the OP, but I do not have PodPress. I deactivated all my plugins and still have the problem.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I don't know how to help those that don't have podpress and have the problem but if you do have podpress you may need to change a few lines of code in the podpress.php file.

    Beginning at line 423 change this:

    function podPress_wp_get_attachment_metadata($data, $id='') {
    if(is_feed()) {
    return '';
    } else {
    return $file;
    }
    }

    to this:

    function podPress_wp_get_attachment_metadata($data, $id='') {
    if(is_feed()) {
    return '';
    } else {
    return $data;
    }
    }

    I don't think it breaks anything in the plugin if this change is made.. I was hoping they'd fix this issue with their latest update but I found today that it still doesn't work without doing this or deleting the plugin altogether.
