WordPress Uploading Blank Image Resolved

How to Fix WordPress Image Upload HTTP Error

Attempting to upload a simple image proved difficult recently when the client’s WordPress website kept incorrectly displaying a blank image instead of what was uploaded. Alternatively, you may be receiving an HTTP error notice. Good news is that we resolved that error within another recent article.



In this article, we will provide you with some potential solutions to this common blank image upload issue so that you can get back to creating valuable content.


What to do if WordPress Uploads Don’t Work


  • Make sure the issue isn’t temporary

When in doubt, give it a few minutes and try again. This error may sometimes be caused by temporarily low server resources, which generally resolve themselves in a few minutes. But if you are busy and as impatient as we are, this may not be what you want to hear. If so, read on.


  • Rename your image

If that fails, try uploading a completely different image. If the other image file uploads, try renaming the failed upload prior to uploading it again. Sometimes the image is trying to overwrite an existing file that, for some reason, cannot be overwritten. It is also recommended to clear your internet browser’s cache.


We hope one of the methods described above has helped you resolve your image uploading issues on your WordPress website. If so please take a moment to like us on Facebook, share this on your social media or buy us a cup of coffee.
