    Hi All,

    I've tried to find a solution in other areas but I'm getting stuck.

    I'm running http://www.jeffandmick.co.uk and everything has worked perfectly until today. I wanted to change my logo in the header of my Arras Theme blog and went to upload a new image. The site told me that changes were succesful and when I looked back at the uploaded imageit diaplyed the outline but with a red cross in it. If I try to upload media it also does the same thing. This was working perfectly before. I tried to diasble my plugins but that hasn't helped. I'm stuck and can't find a way forward. ANy help is appreciated.

    check the folder permissions of your upload folder are 777.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've tried that and still get the red cross showing in the thumb of the upload and when inserting new media / images into post.

    If i go to edit image I can see the picture but it appears in a different size (cropped) to the one that I uploaded and the thumb still shows as a the image border with a red cross.

    This hasn't been resolved by upgrading to 3.0

    Same problem here. It was working, then I upgraded to version 3, and it stopped working. I totally deleted all WordPress stuff (I haven't lost any work as I haven't done anything yet!). Re-installed, then upgraded. Still no joy with the thumbnails.

    I'm a total newbie to wordpress, so struggling to help with any info.

    I have changed a line in my .htaccess file:

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]


    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    and it has fixed the issue. Not sure if it is a coincedence but it is working again.

    My full htaccess file is:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /blogging/

    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*wp-content/plugins.*
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ $1/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
