My problem isn't an upgrade - 2.5.1 is the first version I've installed. I have, however, done other blogs using 2.3 so it's not like I'm a complete newbie.
And I'm still having image upload problems!!!
In my research, I came across these WordPress instructions:
"Prerequisite for Uploading Files:
In order to use all these tools, you have to change the chmod of wp-content folder to 777. If you have not changed permissions in order to write in wp-content folder, you will not be able to use the uploader. If you do not know how to change this value, please read Changing File Permissions."
What the heck is this? I can't find any chmod in my wp-content folder. And if I do, do I change its name to 777? Can there be a little more explicit direction here?
Someone above said it right: This shouldn't have to be so complicated. We're not the coders here.
