How Upload Images into Posts or Pages? (4 posts)

    G'Day,

    Just created a new hosting account with one of the WP.org recommended hosting companies and provisioned my new WP2.5 site via Fantastico earlier today.

    While my test site on http://www.wordpress.com uploads a graphic into a Post or Page without difficulty, this process fails miserably on my new, hosted site.

    In a Post | Page, when ADD MEDIA, then ADD AN IMAGE is clicked, the Flash uploader says "Crunching" for about 5 minutes, then quits without uploading anything.

    Any ideas? Help! And THANKS!

    Please be assured I read, and carefully followed, http://wordpress.org/support/topic/164999?replies=1

    before wasting anyone's time with my post, I cleared cache many times, triply downloaded latest Flash, etc., etc. I spent at least four hours, trolling thru posts here, there and everywhere before resorting to my post above.

    I did ask my ISP if they could do anything. They changed a security setting on some of my WP directory structures (they won't tell me from what to what becuase they say WP has HUGE security holes). Since their change, I can upload relatively small .JPG files (e.g., 17Kb to 301Kb).

    From everything I've read--and the ENORMOUS number of posts on this topic that I've found--it appears that there is a serious flaw in this--absolutely vital--feature of WordPress.

    Being so new here...how can I request developer attention to such a critical and apparently wide-spread bug?

    Thanks!
