    Hi there

    I just want to say that I love word press, I’ve used B2 Evolution in the past, and this is way better!

    I’ve got a slight problem with uploading images to the media library in version 2.7.

    I go to the library, click ‘add new’, browse to the file then click upload. It seems to do something, but then just takes vback to media library page with ‘No posts found’.

    I’ve trawled through the documentation without any luck. I’ve set the file permissions on upload directory so should be writable.

    Many thanks for your help.

    P.S. Does anyone know where the tinyMCE plugin is that is meant to be bundled with word press?

    Thanks again.

    James

    Thanks for the reply. I’ve just gone through each of those items with no luck.

    I have flash v10 installed, but navigated to the browser upload screen instead. Is this ok?

    Should wordpress give me some sort of error to tell me what’s going on?

    Well it sounds kinda strange.

    Have you chmod’ed (777) the folder where the media is going to be saved?

    I certainly have. It is strange. 🙁

    Could you try and change the folder for media? I had some media problems when i first startet off my blog with 2.7 – but moving my media to a new folder (called media) within uploads solved it. It might just help 🙂

    Do you put the absolute url in?

    Or can I put…

    /media

    to take it to root?

    Try this

    wp-content/media

    Thats what i have in mine and it works.

    (I thought i had it in wp-content/upload/media but i remembered that was my nextgengallery)

    hallelujah!!! It’s worked!!! You are a star.

    From there, I can’t seem to see the option when editing a post to insert an image. Any ideas?

    Sorry to be a pain!

    The option is right beneath the Titel / Permalink

    Just above the TinyMCE where it says Upload/Insert – the first image there will open up the upload page. From there you can use the tab Media Library to insert an image which is already uploaded 🙂

    I must be going mad here…

    1. I don’t seem to have tinyMCE
    2. I can’t see anything to do with Titel / Permalink

    Am I missing something?

    Thank you so much for this.

    I suspect there is a problem with javascript in my blog. Perhaps caused by my .htaccess file. The reasons I say this are…

    1. my menus don’t expand and contract like that
    2. I don’t see that toolbar at the top with image icons on.
    3. my browser throughs javascript errors when the page loads.

    Any ideas what I need to add to make it ignore my blog?

    RewriteEngine on
    
    RewriteRule ^blog/?$ /blog/index.php [L]
    RewriteRule ^forum/?$ /forum/index.php [L]

    Thanks again for your help with this!

    P.S. those screen cast things are awesome!

    I’ve now tried to move it onto a sub domain where there is no .htaccess or mod rewriting taking place and it still doesn’t work.

    Gone through all the usual steps with no luck.

    I’m at the end of my teather with it now. 🙁

    Well it’s official… I’m an arse!

    For some reason, filezilla only uploaded half the files up to the webserver. When I compared the 2 amounts, there were miles out.

    All working hunky dory now.

    Thanks again for your help MadsK.

    I’m glad you got it worked out 🙂
