Support » Fixing WordPress » Nothing happens after click the Upload button

  • I wrote a new blog entry. I went to the upload section and selected a 1024×768 JPG picture from my hard disk. I clicked the upload button.

    Nothing happened – the page did not change; the little twirly circle in IE7 just kept spinning right round baby, like a record, right round baby, right round. (Sorry).

    (After about 3-5 minutes, I got this in the Upload section: “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage”)

    My ISP is and my host is 1 and 1 (1and1, 1&1).

    Any ideas what is going wrong?

    (The wp-content directory had 755 permission, and I just changed it to 775, hoping that might help, but it didn’t).

  • Turns out the problem is related to the Netgear DG834G that is between my computer and the internet connection.

    It has a “feature” called “Enable Trend Micro Security Services” under “Security Service”.

    If that is turned on, then the router often blocks most uploads (to blogs, to picture sites, etc).
