What the Heck?!

Maybe one of you can help me with this.  

Sometimes when I insert a picture into a post, and then publish that post, I get the strange Icon you see above, rather than the picture I was trying to post.  

What am I doing wrong?  I thought I had this issue figured out, but obviously, I don’t. 

Help!

  1. I also think you are adding images which are not supported by wordpress media library by default like “svg” format.
    You must add images which are supported by wordpress or enable other formats if you want to use them..
    I hope this woould be helpful for you or anyone else having same issue.

  2. Try opening the Paint App and paste your photo there. Then copy it from Paint and paste it in your post. Or, Save it as a JPEG file and paste it from the file. This usually solves photos that don’t post right for me???
