    Hi, I have just put a new site online but I am unable to upload images with the media uploader - just shows a blank missing image

    Site is http://qualitymatters.ie

    Does anyone know what the problem might be?

    Many thanks

    Have you tried deactivating all plugins?

    Yeah, tried that. Could it be something to do with the security settings?
    - I remember hearing something about it this.

    Does the issue persist with all plugins deactivated and the default Twenty Thirteen theme activated?

    Heya, dont think thats the problem - I just upgraded when you asked me what version I was on...and the problem persists.

    Does it sound like a problem with the permissions?

    Ok, I have tried changing the file permissions to 766, 767, 775 and 777, but no luck yet.

    I have just upgraded my granddaughters site to 3.7.

    I have the 'no temporary folder' message. Have tried all the recommended actions; permissions, theme change, de-activate plugins, etc. I even tried to ftp the images but the Library can't see them. I have no problems on other sites running 3.6. I am loathe to upgrade them at the moment.

    Just wanted to develop on this in case anyone can help, as I am having trouble.

    Most of the images were transferred when I the site went from local to live server - a few weren't. The media uploader is'nt working - and neither is it working when I just insert html code : http://qualitymatters.ie/index.php/latest-news/ You can see on this page. The image file is in the folder - so does anyone know what could be causing this?

    Any help greatly appreciated
    Mel

    There are serious mark-up errors on that page - not sure they're related to the other, but you'll need to get them cleared up:

    Also, have you tried deactivating ALL plugins and switching to the default theme - to start troubleshooting the media uploader problem?

    Hiya, thanks, yes I have tried the plugins and default theme that didnt work, but yes, I will get onto those markup errors and hopefully that will sort it out.

    Many thanks for your reply.
