    I documented a P2 bug to do with errors when uploading media, and fixes for it, here:


    A commenter on my post says that this was not addressed in recent P2 updates, so I wanted to draw your attention to it.


  2. Hey Mike, thanks so much for passing this along and for the thorough documentation. I'm going to bring it to our theme developers so they can have a look and see if we can help fix it.

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks so much for your report, and for all the research and notes to debug the issue. Very helpful!

    This is fixed now in the SVN repository, and we'll push out to the next version of P2 (to the WordPress.org directory) in a week or two.

    Perhaps there was a small regression in this change. Our users noticed that the "Add media" button has been removed from our usual process:

    Adding a pdf is a two-step process — 1) upload the file to WordPress and 2) add the link the the uploaded file into your post. Here’s one way to add a pdf file to a new post.

    STEP 1:

    Click on “Add Media”.

    This brings up a new screen to which you can add the pdf file. Click on “Upload File”:

    Hi Phil,
    What's the URL of your P2 site? We did not push out changes to W.org directory yet.

    Hi Phil, unless you are using the SVN version directly or on WordPress.com -- I'm not sure how this change would affect your site. Can you elaborate a bit? Or open a new thread if it's a new or different issue? Thanks.

  8. Mike - just wanted to let you know this fix is now live in version 1.5.5 of p2. Thanks again for the report and the patch.
