I wish I had a magic bullet for the image upload problems people are having, but I don’t. What I do have is a few suggestions that have worked for others, but not everyone.
- Go to the Adobe website and download and install the latest version of Adobe Flash in your browser. Even if you think you have the latest version, do it anyway. Adobe Flash 9 is on like, r115! [Edit: You can check to see if you are using the latest version of Flash by going here.]
- Clear your browser cache, start a post and try the upload. If you get any blank screens, right click on them and select reload to force reload them.
- Try a different browser. If you are on Windows and using IE, then try Firefox, or the other way around. If you are on Mac and using Firefox, try using Safari 3.1 (10.4.11 and later). I’ve had good luck so far with Safari.
- If you are on Linux, according to staff there is a bug in the Adobe Flash plugin for Linux, and since that is under the control of Adobe, WordPress cannot do anything about it. Hopefully Adobe will get it fixed real soon.
I don’t know if any, or all of these things will help you, but at this time it is all I have to offer you.
