Support » Plugin: Featured images for Jetpack Mobile Theme » Image upload causes "HTTP error"

  • Resolved mopsfidel



    • actual Jetpack is installed
    • actual “mobile-theme-featured-image” is installed
    • in functions.php: add_theme_support( ‘post-thumbnails’ );

    After uploading an image into the media library, an “HTTP error” appears. And the thumb in the media library is empty; because it has no “width” and “height” elements in the HTML code.

    If I deactive this plugin, the http error still appears. But the thumbs in the media library are back.

    This is a common issue with Image uploads on WordPress. You can read more about it here:

    Could you try to upload a smaller image, in pixels? As mentioned by Otto in the post above,

    Filesize is largely irrelevant, it’s the width and height of the image that matters. Smaller images require less RAM. Although WordPress does attempt to tell PHP to allow it enough RAM, not all server configurations allow this and so PHP may not be set to have enough memory to work with larger images. Resize the images to web-sizes before uploading them.

    Another solution is to use this plugin:



    The http error on image upload resolved for me after I migrated WordPress from IIS to Linux and upgraded WordPress from version 3.5x to 3.7.1

    I am using GoDaddy.

    Hope that works for you.
