I am having problems with image uploads in v3.7. I've applied the 3 "Known Bug" fixes (rss.php, modfileupload.php; and functions.php)
This started as a problem with thumbnails not displaying, even though the JPEG file had been uploaded. For the record, at least in v3.7 if the file extension is UPPERCASE, as in mypic.JPG, the script has issues. Change it to mypic.jpg (lower case extension) and that is all good.
Now that I've solved that, when I edit an article and insert an image, all I get is the text "Image" displayed where I've attempted to insert it into the article.
Sure. Here's a link to a Full Story. This story has both Summary and Article, and the jpg was inserted immediately before the first character in the Artcle, set to Align Left. The word [Image] appears at the start of the second paragraph.
I think I see what's happening, but not quite sure why: The path to the jpg file is wrong.
The word [Image] actually appears to be a graphic. If I right-click and try to "view image" I get:
The requested URL /mavtest/html/uploads/Soar-200.jpg was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
In System Configuration, for Image Uploads path, I have:
But the article is looking for the image through the above relative link at:
The calling page is in the /html/ subfolder, and I used a relative path for the include.
<?php include '../newsscript/index.php'; ?>
Could that have something to do with it?
I'm sure you're just going to because it's painfully obvious, so...

Are you using firefox when inserting the images to an article? reason I ask is there is a known bug in firefox which pretty much broke CKEditor by changing image paths, it changed absolute paths like http://example.com/news/uploads/image.jpg to uploads/image.jpg, which sucks.
They've released a beta build of version of firefox 3.6 that apparently fixes this problem - ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/3.6.11-candidates/build3/win32/en-US/

I renamed a few images to uppercase .JPG extensions then uploaded, the upload + inserting into an article worked fine, although I am testing with version 4.0 so maybe that has something to do with it. Solution is upgrade to 4.0! :D
