Resolved: Usage of Wordpress Media Icons available with workaround

Published: 1 Sep 2010

Update (Sept 7): The problem with Wordpress images, reported last week, has been resolved.  You can now upload images normally.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Original issue: There is a problem using Media Icons with Worpress currently. However, a workaround is available:

  1. From the left sidebar of the dashboard, click Media.
  2. Click Add New.
  3. Click Select Files to browse for an image.
  4. Once the image has been uploaded, copy the image 'File URL' (i.e.:  http://blogs.mcgill.ca/files/2010/09/imagename.jpg). This is the image URL.
  5. Navigate to the post where you would like to add the image, and click on the HTML title of the post.
  6. Position the cursor in the editor window where you want to insert image (be sure the HTML tab is selected).
  7. Click the img button in the editor window menu and paste the image URL in the new window; click OK.
  8. Enter an image description; click OK.
  9. Click the Visual tab to preview your image.
  10. Click Update button on right sidebar.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
