2.5 was my first experience with WordPress. At first, the image upload worked fine in IE 7. Then it just stopped - I got the "HTTP Error" and "Crunching" messages. So I tried Firefox, and it worked for a while. Then that stopped working, too. The screen would darken for the Flash uploader, and a progress bar would appear, but nothing would happen. Clicking anywhere on the browser would reset and take me back to my post.
I downloaded 2.5.1, but got the same issues.
I added the following to my htaccess file:
Now, the Flash upload screen appears, and I can search for an image to upload. But when I select "Show Image", nothing happens. That's in Firefox. In IE, nothing happens.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't have any coding experience, and this is really frustrating. It's keeping me from even beginning my site.
Also, I tried the No Flash Upload plugin, but even though it says it's active, it doesn't seem to be doing anything. It still tries to use the Flash uploader whenever I try to add media.
