image upload, this time maybe something new... (2 posts)

    Hey nice helpers,

    I am new to WordPress and I am running my Blog since a week, but never checked out the upload-possibility.

    Now have I find out that even if I had put my folders (also parent-folders) to 777, the upload would not function correctly.

    Error message: Unable to create directory /var/www/htdocs/s1web180/html/usr_s1web180_1/wp-content/uploads/2007/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
    Back to Image Uploading

    BUT: my host is running a few WordPress-Blogs and there was never a problem...

    So I decided to install the "Filosofo Alten Uploader" Plugin. And now the upload is working.

    Now I have to put in the img src and it work, but it is not an automatical size and very usability-unfriendly.

    My questions: when I use the normal WP upload function will the uploaded image be already fit to the WP blog window, or is it like my plugin and the images are in original-size (so I have to resize every image manualy)?

    And second: can you help me? Why can I use the plugin to upload but not your normal upload-function, which I would like to...?

    My host has said, that everything should be working fine...

    Thanks for your help,

    1. WP never resizes automatically the pictures - you always have to resize them manually before uploading!
    1a. Pictures uploaded via the Upload facility in WP get a thumbnail version, too, on the server.

    2. Never used the plugin, so I am clueless.
