Uploading images (4 posts)

    I am having a problem uploading images - when I use the 'img' quicktag, and enter the URL of my image, it doesn't show up. I believe this may be because my webhosting service does not allow anonymous FTP logins for security reasons. Is there any way around this?

    Did you upload the graphic to your website? Just using the img quicktag doesn't upload the image. You still have to put it on your site.

    The quicktag allows you to create a link to an image, andr the same image across many posts, or an image off your site - anywhere. It doesn't upload them.

    To upload: Admin > Options > Miscellaneous > File Upload

    Or use an FTP program (you give it permissions so it isn't anonymous).

    OK.. I have a problem where my Uploads area gives me an error message:
    " It doesn't look like you can use the file upload feature at this time because the directory you have specified (home/goochie/public_html/wp-content) doesn't appear to be writable by WordPress. Check the permissions on the directory and for typos."

    Now, I understand that I need to ensure that I have changed the permissions on my FTP, which I have.. from 755 to 777 (on every conceivable WP related folder!) but still no luck! I'm still getting the same error message on Upload.
