Support » Plugin: Post By Email » Images not loading

  • Hello,

    Before i say anything, this is a great plug in!


    I’ve got it all set up an going, emails going in as expected.
    Except for images, images are not loading up correctly.

    so I send an email from outlook or gmail or whereever,
    goes to email set up as imap,
    then via the plugin get posted.

    I’m set up on and the email is in there also.

    Your help would be great!

    Hi! There are some known issues with images getting posted that I’m still trying to track down, so thanks for letting me know. If you’re embedding the images in the email (like by dragging them in or copy-and-paste), can you try just attaching them as files to see if that gets them to show up?


    Hello, Thanks for the reply.

    Attaching them did not work. Is there something i could do to give you more information, or is there more I can do to help my self!


    From a selection of png’s, bmp, jpeg, jpg, gif. Only small little png got put into media library.
    I thought the attachment was to go straight into the post? Or is it supposed to go to the media library first?

    More information.

    The first image attached to the email is getting added to the media library. The reminder are not, is this correct?

    How can I get the image/attachment to automatically get added to the post? am i missing something from the manual?


    More info.

    I’m not 100% on what this paragraph suggesting:
    “Any files attached to an email will be uploaded to the Media Library and added to the post as a gallery. You can specify gallery options, or its location within the post, by including a gallery shortcode in your email. If no gallery shortcode exists, it will be added to the end of the post.”

    If i add the gallery shortcode the first attached image turns up in the post, but no others.

    If there are multiple attachments they do not appear to be attached either.

    Hi, sorry you’re having so many problems. Can you forward an example email to so I can look into it? Any one of the ones you tested that didn’t work would be great.

    It would also help if you could find out what version of PHP and WordPress you’re using.

    As for your question about the Media Library, all images have to be uploaded to the Media Library in order to be attached to a post. That’s the same thing WordPress does if you add an image to a post via the admin dashboard. See also:Codex: Media Library.
