Blogger Image Thumbnails Problem

    Question

  • I have been using Windows Live Writer since its first beta, now I have a problem with the last version.

    I use Blogger platform and publish on a custom domain. When I add a picture to a post, WLW doesn't upload its thumbnail image to my Picasa account, therefore the thumbnails don't show up on my blog. But when I click on them the image displays correctly so there is a problem with only the thumbnail images.

    When I check the html code of the post, I realized that it was pointing to my local disk as the thumbnail source. I think it stays the same when posting too. Here's an example:

    <a href="$example[2].jpg"><IMG style="BORDER-BOTTOM: 0px; BORDER-LEFT: 0px; DISPLAY: inline; BORDER-TOP: 0px; BORDER-RIGHT: 0px" originalAttribute="href" originalPath="$example[2].jpg"><IMG style="BORDER-BOTTOM: 0px; BORDER-LEFT: 0px; DISPLAY: inline; BORDER-TOP: 0px; BORDER-RIGHT: 0px" title=example border=0 alt=turkcell src="file:///C:/Temp/WindowsLiveWriter-429641856/supfiles8DECD/example_thumb.jpg" width=244 height=192></a>

    I tried changing TEMP directory to C:\Temp but it didn't work.

    I am using Windows XP Turkish with SP3.

  • Did you copy/paste the image while you were editing it in WLW?  Are all images having this problem(can you do a new test post with one image?), or only images from one specific post?

  • I have tested several times on different posts with different pictures. All have this problem. I didn't copy/paste, I added them using the Add section on the sidebar.

  • And just to be clear, the html above was actually published to your blog, or you just found that inside WLW?

  • It was inside WLW.

    I just tried posting to another blog and it worked correctly! Obviously there is a problem with my blog. I will try re-importing it into WLW.
