    Hi,
    I have just downloaded and tested wordpress a bit.
    What I found most obvious is that WordPress has no option to upload/attach files like e.g. images.

    If someone publishes something then an easy file or image uploader could be of interest.

    Ummmmmmm..... check your admin section under Options/Miscellaneous.

    Hmm. Nev'mind maybe. I see that you can activate "upload", but I don't see anywhere to actually do that. Since I'd never allow anyone that sort of access myself, I didn't realize it was problematic.

    And of course, now that I've refreshed the thing, I see that there's an actual "Upload" tab.... so much for how much I know!

    [says the folder you designate has to be writeable, be sure you do that....]

    The rest looks great.
    Now I only have to modify the skin so that the width is self adaptable.
    Right now the wordpress is prepared for 800px wide screens which looks HORRIBLE on 1600px wide screens.

    Guess I will change the DIV width to % unit and adapt the pics so that also the header and stuff adapts automatically.

    Take a look at themes.wordpress.com: there's no doubt some full-width themes there.

    [I have that problem myself, which is why I run wp on my "dev" screen, 1024x768....]

    Interesting:
    now upload is activated, I have uploaded one file for test, went into writing mode, forgot the name for the uploaded file and now there is no list of the uploaded images.

    Interesting also that the images are not visible after posting.
    see here under UNCATEGORIZED
    http://www.umm-pur.com/wordpress/
    there are two images but they dont show.
    Only the ALT text shows.

    Yet another trick to make the images visible?

    Any way to see the list of already uploaded files?
    Maybe I have missed that out, too, but well, cant find it.
    I can naturally go into FTP and look there, but that would be tedious.

    No problems, sleep well :)

    Anyway, there should be a way to find out which files have been uploaded.
    I just could not find out how :(
