    See the four images with a little picture icon next to them?
    They were uploaded through WordPress

    ... See all the other objects? They are images as well, but they were uploaded through an FTP.

    When I go to WordPress and make a new page, click "EDIT" and want to add new images, the only images that show in the 'GALLERY' are the ones that were uploaded through WordPress and not the ones that were uploaded through FTP, how come?

    .. or am I just checking at wrong places?

    In your FTP program, did you upload the images in ASCII or binary mode? Images should be uploaded in binary mode. Some FTP programs have an "auto" setting where it will automatically detect the filetype and upload it in the appropriate mode. Images can look messed up if transferred in the wrong mode.

    If you want to add an image to your page from within WP, you should be able to specify the path to the image, and it should work fine, even if it doesn't show up in the gallery.

    Did you try deleting the images and re-uploading them in binary mode? You might also try using a different FTP client and see if that makes a difference. (In theory, it shouldn't, but I've seen it happen.)

    Actually I'm using GoDaddy

    They have a built-in FTP lol!

    Yeah, so I uploaded all manualy. Now I'm facing with a different problem.


    I uploaded all the images, then clicking on "Insert Gallery" and it added all the images to the page that I wanted to... but they all have links attached to them =/ And when you click on any picture, it sends me to a page where the picture is alone inside the wordpress theme... so weird (N)

    Hey SpellZ,
    I don't think you should see the pictures via your admin dashboard, if you upload them via FTP, because your database doesn't know you uploaded pictures via FTP.

    Also I'd suggest you create a new folder called "images" (domain/images) and change that in your Wordpress setings to that address, so all pictures are uploaded to the images folder. Also change the settings were it says that the structure should be year/month/day for storing images.

    It will be lot handier for you in the long run.
