Thanks for the input! I’m done for the day but I will do some tests tomorrow and let you know how I make out. I owe you a beer or two….March 11, 2015 at 2:32 am in reply to: Problems uploading photos to Media Library using FTP #69046
No image at all… Just the title of the photo. I had not noticed that. Exif of the photo says 240dpi.March 11, 2015 at 1:27 am in reply to: Problems uploading photos to Media Library using FTP #69044
Maximum upload file size: 16 MB
Also, I uploaded two 7mb photos, both of which appeared in the Media Library. One was uploaded using Filezilla and the other was added by using the standard WP “Drop files here” on the page that you just mentioned. When I go to add them to a gallery using the path “Word Press Photo Seller – Gallery Management – Create/Edit Gallery – Create/Edit Gallery – select your images from the media library” both images are blanked out in the media Library.March 11, 2015 at 12:15 am in reply to: Problems uploading photos to Media Library using FTP #69042
To answer the first question – I simply want to use the option “Media – Add From Server” to add photos to my Media Library which will be inserted into galleries.
Following your suggestions… I have made some progress
I have located the subfolder “uploads/wp_photo_seller” and was able to upload two test photos to that folder. One is 305kB, which does appear in the Media Library. The second photo was 6.9mb and results in an error message and appears as a blank icon in the Media Library.
I contacted the host with your suggestion to “increase your wordpress media upload filesize” and recieved the following response: “I had our sys admin take a look at the upload filesize, and the settings are correctly set to 128M, which you can view here (search for upload_max_filesize) Following his link shows “PHP Version 5.3.29, Directive upload_max_filesize, Local Value 128M, Master Value 128M”
So at this point the only remaining issue seems to be that I am unable to upload a photo larger than 2mb, using either FTP or the WordPress “Drop files anywhere to upload” option.

Cute FTP is not a plugin – it is an FTP client. In an effort to eliminate that as a problem I have also tried to use Filezilla. The result is the same – photos that have been uploaded via FTP do not show up in the “wp-content” folder, or any other folder or subfolder. I have contacted the host, Domainit, and they checked the Filezilla file structure from their end and all is in order. I have also tried to upload smaller photos (1mp) as a test with the same result.
In addition to this issue I also get and error message “An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later.” when attempting to add a photo directly from WP PhotoSeller – Edit – Galley-Add Photo. I am attempting to upload a photo that is 5.5mp. I can add photos up to 2mp, but anything larger results in an error message. I have contact Domainit and received the following: “I had our sys admin take a look at the upload filesize, and the settings are correctly set to 128M, which you can view here:upload_max_filesize”.
Any assistance/advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks! – Problem solved. I think that I was confusing “albums” with “galleries”.
When I upload photos to a gallery it states “Maximum upload file size: 2MB”. The digital images that I want to offer average 10-12mb in size. Is there a global setting that will allow me to upload larger files?
I have used your videos, read the forums ans am still missing something…
I am attempting to add additional galleries, each designated by event/date. I can’t seem to add more than one gallery. When I attempt to add a second, or additional gallery I end up with the original gallery followed by a series of photos instead of new galleries.
What am I overlooking?
