Wow, my name was mentioned on The Neal Show! Thanks Jeff! Thanks Neal!

As for the media upload problem, it may be the Visual Editor breaking the code. I remember embedding a flash video once and my post just kept breaking every time I edited it. I ended up turning the Visual Editor off so I can paste HTML code without the editor changing it.

If you’re still running a WordPress version older than 2.5, you can turn off the visual editor by doing this:

  • Go to the “Users” tab, and find your author (usually ‘admin’).
  • Click on “Edit.”
  • Uncheck “Use the visual editor when writing. (See image above.)
  • Click on “Update User”

This will then give you only the basic buttons when editing.
