    OK couple of things...

    On the upload image. Do you see anything change? It _should_ bring up a window with the WordPress upload dialog.

    From there inside that WordPress upload picture you scroll down a bit and press the insert into post.

    If you aren't seeing the WordPress upload - well the only thing I can think of is it is something to do with SSL. If you have "FORCE_SSL_ADMIN" enabled in your config then the link to add a new item is _supposed_ to be an https link. So on the add an item page let me know if it is a https page or http. If it is http try forcing it to be an https page and see if that changes it.

    As for the items not showing up... I can't think of anything right now. I think I'll try to integrate some kind of debug dump this weekend. Then you could send that to me and I can see what's going on in the lost and found table...

    In any case I'll also run some tests myself and see if I can figure out what might be happening.

    Hi I just installed your plug-in. It works great but it looks like any styling has been striped (if there was any). I'm a web developer but new to WordPress. How do I style it to make it look a little better? Particularly , when logged in, the links for "Add item" " View list" ect... are close together and look kind of bad.

    Do I just go to edit plug-in and then add some styling into the php code directly?

    Thanks for providing this.

    I'm going to rework the css a bit in the next release and then go from there. There is a lost-found.css file you can edit but wait for the next release (probably within a week). After that I'll make sure new releases don't overwrite css changes made.

    Thanks! I did find the css so I could add some styling of my own. The only problem I had was I couldn't seem to change the font-family on the links or buttons. I can change the color, size, placement, background, hover , all that but not the font-family. It was strange and I couldn't find anywhere in the php where it was overwriting any styling so I'm not sure what was happening. I just wanted to use a sans serif font. Anyway let me know when the next style sheet comes out, and I'll try it!

    Thanks for the code =)

    Just released version 0.4. Redid the css to make it more theme friendly. Found on my network WP install the $POST->guid doesn't include the www in the address which killed the links. For some reason it didn't do it on my other site. Whatever. Fixed it anyway so hopefully this fixes the picture issue that adcrunch had.

    CSS doesn't change the font family. I used the CSS class button-primary which --SHOULD-- pick up the button css from your theme. Most of the text is nested in tables so check the css you have for the TR, TD, etc and maybe that's where you need to add a font family. It may not be defined for tables in your theme.
