Why aren’t my images showing up at all?

There are a couple possible reasons for this. First, check to see if you can add an image through WordPress’s normal posting mechanism. If not, then¬†check the following:


  • Your server does not have the php-gd library installed. Ask your hosting provider about this.
  • Your wp-content/uploads directory is not writable by the webserver. Make sure that it is.


  • “Use custom image field for images” setting is set to “Yes,” change it to “No.”
