Was WordPress 2.5 Released Prematurely?

Another day, and another issue with the new image uploading system in WordPress 2.5.

This is the second problem I’ve had with the new image uploading system, and I’m definitely not alone.. Thankfully, there’s a quick fix for this particular error.

FTP into your web hosting account, and edit your .htaccess file. Insert the following code at the bottom of your .htaccess file:

<IfModule mod_security.c>
<Files async-upload.php>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

Save your file, go back into your dashboard, and you should be able to upload images now.

Rumor has it that 2.5 was rushed to coincide with WordCamp, and as such a bunch of bugs “slipped through the cracks”. Hopefully all of these issues will be addressed in WordPress 2.5.1. Personally, I’d prefer an option to disable the uploader, as nothing was wrong with the old way of handling images!
