    Ok So i am using optimize press and i cant seem to upload an image. When i click the upload image button nothing happens. A windows explorer winder does not opening up so i can choose the image on my computer.

    This i was optimze press support had to say about it

    OptimizePress requires certain permissions to be set on your server in order to upload images to your site. Follow the steps in this guide to fix this issue:
    1) Ensure that the wp-content/uploads folder on your server has the permissions set at 777. This means that our system can write images and files to this folder. You can set the permissions in most FTP software by right clicking on the folder and setting the permissions.
    You can also change the folder permissions inside Cpanel file manager system
    2) Check that you have sufficient webspace and bandwidth on your server and have allocated a sufficient amount to this website/domain if you are on a reseller account.

    I am using wamp..and I tried doing to the windows permission thing abut it did not work

    can any one help me resolve this>

    I am assuiming that you’re doing this locally?

    I had the same issue last time with WAMP, and yes, you need to change the file permission.

    Try using the steps and see.

    So i have to change the permissions for the entire wamp folder and subfolders?

    So, if you follow the steps in the URL, that should work and change the file permission on your computer.

    If you’re using a Mac, you can press

    Cmd + i

    to display the Folder Info in which there are Sharing & Permissions settings which you could change there easily

    OK i am using windows and I changed the permission to full control for the wamp folder but i still cant upload. Do i have to to reset wamp or my browser for it to take effect?

    Have you change the permission for this folder?

    wp-content/uploads

    (@lokii)

    yes they are also set to full control umm do i have to restart wamp?

    mohdrafie

    (@mohdrafie)

    This is weird. You can try to restart but I suspect that wouldn’t solve the problem. Do you have the administrator privilege on the Windows?

    I’m not sure if it helps, but have you try XAMPP?
