Update page after adding media library image, get 404
I’ve been having problems with an inherited website. The latest problem is that when we insert an image stored in the media library to a page, we get a 404 error upon updating the page and the changes are not saved. In a few cases, we get the 404 error as we are inserting the image (and the image is not inserted).
Tonight, I updated everything – WP 3.4.2 > 3.5.1, updated all plugins (and, yes, tried doing all of my editing with the plugins disabled). I had the problem before the updates, and I have the problem after the updates.
On one page, I was able to successfully insert the image “from url” (despite that url pointing to our own media library). While I am able to insert images using the url (and see them just fine in the visual editor) on other pages, when I click Update to save the page, I get a 404 error.
I am able to save the page if I haven’t made any changes AND if I make changes to the text. But I can’t save with an image in there.
Here’s the line of code I’m attempting to add:
<img src="http://thrivingplanet.org/elisa/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Screen-Shot-300x91.jpg" alt="Screen-Shot" width="300" height="91" class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-1590" />
I tried stripping out everything – class, width, height – and leaving only the
<img src="...">code. No dice. I still get a 404 error upon saving the page.
Here’s the page where I am trying to insert the code above:
Anyone have any thoughts? I found a few threads about 404 on update, but all of the posts I read were 3 or 4 years old and it looked as if their content was saved, whereas my changes are not.
