Duck’s at work

I’m having some strange Photo behaviour. I store most of my photos on Google Photos for convenience and up until recently I could easily insert them directly from WordPress.

However this has changed , certainly since WordPress version 6.0. I now experience what seems to be an endless loop and eventually I get a json error, whatever that is. Not all I’d lost as the images have turned up in the WordPress media library without being inserted in post.

I can insert the photos directly from the library without issue. I took me quite some time to discover this. Not really seamless as sometimes I can’t directly upload to the media library.

Photos are an important part of blogs so this is a little annoying. I have tried this from several computers and a couple of android devices. I have two self hosted blogs with the same issue. Strange Photo Behaviour indeed.
