OK, this is a really odd one.
From time to time images are disappearing from WordPress posts. Not the whole image, including thumbnail. The large version of the image vanishes from the server, leaving behind the link to the image in the HTML, and the thumbnail.
The image clearly existed on the server at some point because the software managed to make a thumbnail of it (and anyway, you can see it when you create the page).
This doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s happened a few times now, and I’m pretty sure it’s not just finger trouble – I don’t think you can delete an image from the server via the control panel without deleting the thumbnail as well anyway?
is still on the server, but
has gone AWOL for no obvious reason.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!
I am afraid that we are still on WordPress 2.07, as it’s a really busy site maintained by a team of editors and is constantly changing – taking it down for long enough to apply upgrades and test them all is a bit of a nightmare. We will do it soon though, honest!
