WordPress Error – “The Image Could Not Be Loaded”

For 2 months and 8 days, I have struggled to understand why when I clicked on the links of my pictures, an error message that read “The Image Could Not Be Loaded” would pop up. Jeff alerted me on Jan 21st that the images wouldn’t load and I did some research and couldn’t pinpoint it but thought it had to do with the characters in the file name. Much to my chagrin, as I continued to read forums on WordPress, I couldn’t find a permanent fix. Until today that is.

Amazingly I stumbled across another person’s thread and naturally felt like an idiot when I found the answer. When you click “add media” on the WordPress page, you must link it to the media page and not the attachment page. Who knows how much traffic I lost because of this error. Millions at least. Either way, I’m proud to say that this will no longer be an issue an you can enjoy rnningfool with the images loading from here on out. Now I have to correct 68 days of mistakes…
