WordPress Flash Uploader

was driving me INSANE. Wouldn’t work. There was no button appearing for me to browse for images and upload media. But PresidiaCreative.com came up with the WordPress fix:

  1. Download the WordPress zip file from WordPress: http://wordpress.org/latest.zipOpens in a new tab.
  2. Next, extract that zip file to your desktop.
  3. Now, open your FTP client and connect to your server that is hosting WordPress.
  4. Navigate to /wp-includes/js/
  5. Re-upload /swfupload/ from your desktop (in the same directory) and replace the files currently on your server.
  6. Clear your browser cache.

Bless ’em 🙂

  1. Why not just use the old style uploader that you can access via the link. There are issues with some setups with the Flash uploader that’s why the old style uploader has been left in place as a fall back.
