Well I’ll be damned!!! I figured it out!

I’ve been blogging for the last few months on a program called WordPress.com.  I really love it. Its easy, attractive, and FREE! No problemos until I switched to WordPress.org. Then it was all over!

My new site on wordpress.org is Menopause in Manhattan – the site for my about-to-be published book. I’m working on making the site the best looking website in history (okay, okay, I’ll settle for just plain nice). And from the moment I transferred all the info, the you-know-what hit the fan.

The problem? No images showing up. I called and emailed everyone I could think of. Tried forums, the godaddy.com domain/hosting people but nada. No one could offer any help. The best I got was “Try another browser” (I was using Firefox). Well voila! It worked! I tried again with Safari (for us Mac users) and sure enough – there were the images. But I was frustrated. Why wouldn’t they appear on the Firefox page?

After a frustrating three days – I just had an idea. Maybe there’s something in the Firefox settings that will give me a clue. Yup – you guessed it – that’s where my Eureka! appeared.

So… if you have this sort of problem – go into the Tools section of your Firefox menu. Then Page Info, then Media. If the box for Block Images is checked – UNCHECK IT!

And that my friends, is how it’s done!

    remember, computers are male brained…you have to keep repeating yourself until they listen.

    Congrats on your breakthrough, my friend. I know how frustrating some of this stuff can be. Take care and much success,
