Two of my Twitterati are having issues with WordPress 2.5 and Flash Image upload, so I'm trying some stuff out.
This is new. I almost NEVER use the WordPress dashboard to write posts because I like MarsEdit so much, but two of my Twitterati are having issues with WordPress 2.5 and Flash Image upload, so I’m trying some stuff out.
Edit: OK — That worked just fine. I’m on an Intel Mac, Leopard 10.5.2 — using the latest version of Flash and I just inserted the image from the Post page in WordPress. I selected the image, added the parameters I wanted and clicked “insert into post” — then I set-up my formatting.
Update 2: The AWESOME Mark Jaquith just added a comment — apparently this is either a Bad Behavior plugin incompatibility (so use Akismet or Defensio and disable BB for now) or something with the
mod_security Apache module — which may be falsely marking WP 2.5 as malicious code. If you have Apache access, I guess you could try whitelisting WordPress (not sure how to do that — anyone smarter, chime in), but this is probably something you’ll want to bitch to your host about.

These problems usually have to do with
mod_security which is an Apache module that blocks requests that look like they may be malicious. Apparently a lot of people are getting false positives with the WordPress 2.5 flash uploader. Another possible culprit is the the Bad Behavior plugin.

…in my .htaccess file fixed the HTTP upload errors when using the flash upload in my WP 2.5.1 install.
Saw you post in the (mt) forums, thought I’d check your blog out.
Hip Hip hurray, I have found another girl geek like myself, and ironically in my neck of the woods! Go Georgia!

Wow, thanks for the guilt-trip Lisa! Now I really don’t love you.
I’m kidding, of course. I love you lots. And my blog. Even when I am a neglectful webmaster/friend. I’m sorry!
