Perhaps Not A “Fix” But A Work Around For WP Error
For probably about a month or more now every time I have tried to include a blogger’s photo in response to a prompt WP has given me an error.
The error states that the photo type is not allowed…Whaaaat??? I receive this error on my iPone and my iPad Pro.
I have spent a lot of time reboooting my devices and switching from one to the other thinking it was just a random error. However, I quickly noticed this was not this case. It became quite frustrating(to put it mildly).
Quite by accident I figured out a work around for this error. Granted this is far from acceptable(to me anyway) as it adds unnecessary time and steps to what would normally be a simple addition to my post.
That being said. First, save the photo that you are wanting to include in your to a post. Then go to your photos(not in WP), where all of your photos are saved and pick the photo. Click edit and the crop symbol.
Here is the truly asinine part of this work around. You only need to crop the image a fraction of whatever measurement you use. You don’t even have to be able to tell that you did anything to the photo. Click save.
Now go back to the post you are working on. Click to insert an image and go through the motions to add the photo to your photos so you are able to choose said photo. WP will them allow you to use the photo.
I have not contacted WP as more times than not it is a lesson in frustration. I find it hard to believe they do no know about this problem.
Seems like WP would have fixed this error by now, but apparently it is not high on their to do list.
I hope this is helpful.
