When media file upload won’t prompt for files in WordPress

A couple days ago, I tried to use the web interface to my blog to upload some media files, mostly pictures I had taken. I clicked the upload button and nothing happened. I had to do some serious digging but finally found the culprit – Flash 10.

It turns out that file selector is powered by Flash, and its not Version 10 compatible at all.

So, if you’re using WordPress 2.5.x and run into this problem, you need to do either of two things:

I had to find all this stuff with very little sleep (we released some new capabilities to the Classmates web site last night) and so I hoped I could help others (and myself if this happens again).
