images not showing up (4 posts)

    I've had this problem both in 2.3 and 2.2.1

    I try to upload an image and it seems successful, but doesn't give me an option to show full size or thumbnail, it only has the options of linking to "file" or "none".

    When I send it to the editor, it just sends the filename.

    When I "browse all" images, I just get grey boxes with filenames on them.

    This is happening on two different versions of WP on two different servers. What's happening?

    maybe it's a permissions issue. can't read the directory the images are in? i had a similar issue and cannot remember what i did to resolve it. sorry. but check your permissions!

    also, i had an issue where my images were going into /wp-content/themes/THEMENAME/images. i didn't like that for one reason. I tend to change my themes a lot and they would become broken images if i swaped themes.

    Hi Tinch! That is great ... I think it may indeed be to do with the themes. I'll have a look and let you know.

    Darn. I tried changing the upload directory to /THEME/ (in my case Greenie-10) but no joy. Also tried changing permissions to 775 and then back to 755 but alas...
