Help Uploading Images to Wordpress

by 2 comments
I'm having a strange problem with WP...

When I click on the icon above the post box to add an image, it brings up the window and I can locate the image on my laptop but when I try to load it I get a HTTP Error.

I know this is because of something to do with Flash vs. Browser mode because I had the same problem the other night and it gave me the option of uploading in "browser mode" which worked just fine.

I can't seem to find that option anymore and I've got the latest version of flash installed so I'm unable to upload any images till I figure this out, or figure out a workaround.

I'm running WP 2.6.1 (?) not the latest version.

    Hi Stephen: I sometimes have the same problem and wondered what the best solution was.

    What version of WP are you using?

    Have you tried posting your question on this forum: WordPress › Support Tags — gallery

    I use an external image hosting company for my images ( - they offer a great service and support direct linking. I just cut and paste the image code into wordpress where I want the image to appear. Gives you a lot more control than using the wordpress image feature.

      You should find an option that says "You are using the Flash uploader. Problems? Try the Browser uploader instead."

      Or you could upload your image yourself. Make a new folder for images. Then use that url to place the image in your blog post.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.
