Hi Kathy

 

To get around this, the easiest option would be to upload the images directly via ftp into the images folder.

 

Or to change the upload limit set by wordpress take a look at this support thread on wp.org about editing the php.ini http://wordpress.org/support/topic/increase-media-library-upload-file-size-limit or here http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-do-i-change-my-upload-limit?replies=6 for a htaccess solution.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks for the tip James. I'm afraid I'm a bit new at this so not sure what that means to upload directly via ftp?  Could you give me a few pointers? Thanks. K

FTP is a way of accessing your hosting account where all the files are stored for your website. You will need to use an FTP client, something like https://filezilla-project.org/ or you might be able to access your hosting account directly by logging into your account with them and using their system to upload the file directly. 

 

If you're not confident making the changes yourself, try giving your host a call. Hopefully they'll be able to edit the files for you and raise the limit :-)
