no pics

Ever wondered why this here is so – sagen wir mal – typographic?
I just don’t get it. I do not manage to upload pictures, neither with browser- nor flashupload, not via gallery or uploads-menu. The photos are listed in the gallery, but not displayed, like this:

Ahhhh! had to shake lightly to level wp-content.

    I upload my images with an FTP client to subfolders in my /wp-images folder. Then I embedd these images into my posts with the normal HTML img tags. I’ve never tried any other method, except for embedding images from Flickr, but that is the same principle.

    thanks Dan, guter Tipp, and while we’re at it: what’s your fav ftp-client for that?

    I actually think that just about all of the Mac FTP apps are good. I bought a license for Transmit a while back ( It was $30, but I paid that back when I first set up TypeOff… I thought that I was going to take over the Internet back then (haha…), so I naturally didn’t blink. I’ve heard from several people that Interarchy is also good.

    I’m also uploading my pictures via ftp-client. For PC there’s a nice little tool named Filezilla, its fast, easy to use, has all the necessary features and its free. Since I’m uploading loads of pictures, I organize my stuff by year and month. I.E. uploads/2009/08/nameofpicture.jpg

    There are a number of possible reasons why your WP won’t show images. But since Flickr-linking works, I’d say it’s because of your servers data rights management. The CHMOD value for the appropriate folders – i.e. uploads, or whereever you store your images – has to be at least 750. This can be done via a ftp-client. Simple login onto your ftp-server via the client. Click the folder for which you wish the values to be changed, right click -> settings/attributes or a term similar to that. There you should find some checkboxes to be clicked. Read/Write/Run or Change.
    Easiest way to find out if the problem can be resolved here, is to check all the 9 boxes or type in the value 777. If it works then, try the value 750. If it still works, leave it like this.

    Danke Steven, flickr import habe ich erst heute eingebaut. Aber das mit den Rechten klingt sehr plausibel. Ich habe schon gemerkt, dass die meisten Rechteänderungen (habe ich nämlich schon gemacht) nicht gesichert wurden über Dreamweaver. Irgendwas stimmte mit der Verbindung nicht.
    Ich versuchs noch mal. stay tuned :)

    na super, ich schaffe es auch nicht über ftp aus einem image-Ordner. Und das mit der Rechteänderung hat auch nichts vewirkt, die standen schon in allen erdenklichen Ordnern auf 777.
    Jetzt bleibt mir noch das Ausprobieren von posten via email.

    update heute: es fehlte der Ordner »uploads«, aber auch nachdem ich den angelegt habe, schickt das wp-dialog-dings die Bilder nicht da hinein, sondern legt sie in meinen content-Ordner, zu dem der Pfad in der html-Einbindung aber nicht verweist. Jetzt kann ich zumindest aber händisch was einbauen. ich forsche weiter
