Image Uploading #6

The issue of uploading images has been with us, off and on, for months. I last wrote about this problem in June 2006, in Image Uploading – 5. Note this problem might be related to the current problems of Disappearing Images also.

Remember though, if you have this problem, you don’t report it to Blogger Support, and the problem continues, you have only yourself to blame when the problem continues.


(Edit 11/3): If the problem is with the Add Images button not appearing on the post editor toolbar, and the blog in question is published externally (not xxx.blogspot.com), then check your FTP publishing settings.

The image upload button will not appear for users publishing via FTP who do not have their FTP login information saved in their settings. As a workaround until we fix this, go to the Settings | Publishing tab and fill in the username and password for your FTP server. This does not affect Blog*Spot blogs.


(Edit 11/1):
Blogger Status claims that the problems have been fixed. I wonder what Pal smokes? Note additions to the list above.

Update 11:40 AM(PST): This issue has been resolved.


(Edit 10/30): A lot of advice about this problem mentions trying another browser. This problem, for some folks, may be caused by browser security settings which interfere with the scripts that enable image uploads. Using a different browser, maybe one with less security settings, will allow the scripts to run properly.

Another diagnostic procedure would be to try uploading into another post or another blog, maybe one created for the purpose. You can create any post, even one in another blog, upload pictures there, and publish the pictures in this post. And doing that would diagnose the problem as being related to the blog, as opposed to the computer.

In Disappearing Images – 3, I suggested that part of that problem might be caused by DNS cache, local content cache, or MTU settings issues, very real possibilities when working with complex networks that use Internet Protocol. I don’t think DNS cache, local content cache, or MTU settings issues can be ruled out for the uploading problems either – caching is an issue that concerns every phase of Internet use.
