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!
