    Hi there. When I upload images into the media library, they appear as broken images. They won't appear in posts either. Images do show normally when I try to edit them, but not after I've saved them. My site is http://www.LifestyleDistrict.co.uk, thanks a lot in advance!

    Check that anti-hotlinking isn't enabled in your hosting account. If it is, try disabling it.

    Sorry, but where can I see that anti-hotlinking? Thanks

    You need to check with your hosts about this.

    Considering I never had the issue before, would it be something they'd have activated recently?

    I really couldn't say. Try asking your hosts about it.

    OK I will do tomorrow. One thing though, I had a anti-hotlink plugin installed before the 3.7.1 update. I have deactivated it since, but do you think my issue might be related?

    It's possible. Try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    I will try this straight away and I'll keep you posted. Thanks a lot.

    I'll be interested to see how this is resolved as I'm having the exact same issue. (Although I have no special anti-hotlink plugins installed.) Everything was working fine until a few days ago. Now, whenever I try to upload an image, I get an error message. I can see the individual image file name when I look in my Media Library. And when I click on the file name I can see my photograph clear as day. But I see this message when I click on EDIT IMAGE:

    Image data does not exist. Please re-upload the image.

    (I've also been unsuccessful in trying to create a simple gallery).

    Thanks in advance for any guidance anyone can offer.

    @hbowne: Please continue with your own topic. Your problem is almost certainly completely different.

    Hi Cravendale, last night, I un-ticked the box that says "Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders" in -> Settings -->Media. After that I was able to upload images again!

    @Esmi the issue is now sorted, thanks for your help!

    Is there something necessary to enable this Organisation option? I'm using 3.8.1 and have the exact same issue: all the files are there, all are intact, all have the right permission, all the folders are fine, and so forth.

    I've tried everything, this could be the solution, but I don't have the checkbox referred to here.

    HI there

    I am an administrator for my website using wordpress. The site was set up for me and is hosted by the same person.

    However as an administrator I can still upload posts etc.

    I have just uploaded a post and have tried to add media pictures to the post. I have first uploaded pictures to media but unfortunately they do not show up. All i see is a small blue icon with a question mark in the middle. However when I click on edit the picture is there.

    I have seen some comments about changing permissions to 755. Where exactly does one do this?

    I can not see any wordpress content/upload folders when I log into my site

    Please let me know where I find this or what i can do to fix this problem. Many thanks. I am a little pressed for time as my blog has been sent out to clients already. I initially had copy and pasted the images into the blog and when I did a view it was all fine but then after a couple hours the pictures disappeared.

    Anyone have some advice for me?

    Thanks
