Support » Fixing WordPress » No thumbnails creation for images uploaded via XML-RPC

  • Dear All,

    I am using the WordPress client for Maemo on the Nokia N900, for my blog with the Arras theme. It works quickly and neatly.

    I can attach pictures and they are correctly uploaded in the contents folder and displayed in the post. However, they are not created thumbnails, hence I cannot use it as a featured picture.

    I think this may be related: I spent some time trying to figure out why thumbnails weren’t created when I upload images from Python to WordPress over xml-rpc. I was sending:
    {'name':'foo.jpg', 'bits':xmlrpclib.Binary(}
    but should also have specified the mime type:
    {'name':'foo.jpg', 'type':'image/jpeg', 'bits':xmlrpclib.Binary(}

    Without the mime type, thumbnails are not created when uploading over XML-RPC, so I guess the client is not adding or even detecting the mime type.
