Are You Sure You Want To Do This, Please Try Again - Word press Error

One of my friends told me that she is unable to insert a image a post when she clicked on insert image icon at default word press editor but she is getting an error ” Are You Sure You Want To Do This, Please Try Again “ so i googled to find a solution .After searching for 10 -15 mins i found an article by Knizam which helped me to fix the problem .


Step 1

Go to Plugins > Installed and de-activate all the plugins

Step 2

Check if the insert post is working or not .

Step 3

If Yes, Activate any one of the plugins and check  if insert image feature is working or not. If it works then move on to next plugin,If it doesn’t work then deactivate the plugin or upgrade the plugin

Step 4

Repeat step 3 untill you are done with the total no of active plugins

Once you complete the above 4 steps you will be able to use the upload / insert image .
 Add an image

Note : This error usually occurs when there is a out dated version of the plugin installed in word press

  1. Well you sure came to this friends rescue with this Kan ! Now we know who the real culprit was ! Which now has me wondering : can the Google Analytics Plugin be hurting more bloggers than it is helping ? I have had issues w Google Analytics plugin in the past – it totally ruined ( affected ) my site – which is now something to ponder for anyone else experiencing the same problem . Thanks Kan – you sure saved the day !

    Mia 🙂

  2. Had this exact problem and thanks for helping. Perfect logic behind that, i just wasn’t thinking. Great to have guys like you to save me from trouble.
    Agreed with Mia, Google Analytics Plugin is screwing it all up for us – real shame that.

  3. thank you,

    i have other error,

    the black bar which entitled ” add an image ” repeated for 4 or 5 bars…

    any solution ?

  4. Thank you very much, you have saved me a lot of time.


  5. Life saver! (well at least major time saver) … for me the plugin was the Newsletter Plugin by Fast Email Sender team … but it’s not outdated, just the latest.

    Thanks very much for this post!

  6. Thanks so much for this post. A simple way to analyze the problem.

  7. ThankYou soooo much!! You have explained the problem soooo simply that even a kid could interpret it… other websites have the solution but explain it in a complicated way…

  8. I am getting this problem with W3 Total Cache… any work around or suggestions for the same.. ??

  9. Awesome, this helped me out. However, the culprit ended up not being a plugin. The problem was that my Woo theme had a pending update for the themes framework. Once updated, the problem went away 🙂

  10. Same problem. Just WP installed. No plugins active. However, whe trying to upload Themes (zip files) of trying to upload images, this error appears again and again.

    Thank you

  11. Hey thanks I’ve been having the same problem but right after reading your step-by-step. I knew right away it was Google XML Sitemaps!

    Anyways I turned it off and tried again saving the page changes and it worked this time around.

    Many thanks,


  12. The plugin which was ruining my website was All In One Schema.Org Rich Snippets. Thanks a lot for the info.
