Support » Fixing WordPress » Flash Uploader button not loading

  • Resolved John Robertson


    Ok, suddenly on my blog, my Flash Uploader button has stopped functioning. When I right click in the area it should be, it says Movie Not Loaded. I tried the browser uploader and that worked fine. I disabled all my plugins but it still is present. I also have 777 permission access for the custom upload folder I use, and the info is set correctly in the image settings area. Can it be an issue with file permissions for a particular file?

    What version of Flash are you using? Have you tried this in any other browsers, and (if possible) on any other computers?

    I have never seen that before. I suppose that it could be a permission issue. Check the /wp-admin/ and /wp-includes/ directories. Make sure that the directories are set to 755 and the files are set to 644.

    Well I checked that, still didnt work … so went last resort and reuploaded my wp-admin and wp-include folders… that seemed to fix it. maybe a file got corrupted some how … I wish I knew why.
