2.7 trouble: can't upload images or edit timestamp (32 posts)

    Hi! I updated to WP version 2.7 and am having a couple of problems with posts.

    Edit Timestamp:
    Clicking Edit to edit the timestamp does nothing.

    Upload Images:
    I can get to both the Flash and non-Flash image uploaders, and choose and image. But when I click the Insert button I get a blank screen.

    I'm using a Mac, latest OS, latest Flash and Javascript. This happens in both Firefox and Safari. I deleted the WP files from my host and reinstalled them from a fresh download.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I'm having the same image upload problem:
    I click to insert an image into a new post, then I'm sent to a new page:

    /wp-admin/media-upload.php?post_id=0&type=image&TB_iframe=true

    While I can successfully upload an image into my media library, when I click 'insert into post', I'm sent to this blank page:

    /wp-admin/media-upload.php?type=image&tab=type&post_id=0

    I understand that because I've yet to save the post, the id is 0 and perhaps that's causing the issue, but I've tried to insert images into older posts that have assigned post ids, but I still come to the same blank screen at the end and am not able to insert the image in my gallery into posts.

    I too am on a mac, I've tried both Firefox and Safari, but no luck. Is there a bug that happens when I press the insert image button -- shouldn't I not be navigating away from the post I'm writing?

    Thanks in advance.

    I re-FTPed all the wordpress files, but to no avail. However, when I deactivated my plug ins, instead of sending me to a new page, the iFrame displayed properly and I was able to insert images into my posts!!!

    FYI -- For me, deactivating the WP-Amazon plugin worked to allow me to Add Images.

    For those with blank admin pages after media and image uploads - I disabled all plugins, and the re-enabled all except the WP-Amazon plugin. All working well!

    (I did just deactivate MT_Amazon initially, but that didn't seem to solve it - heance the drastic Disable All!)

    Wow so that kinda sucks if we're wanting to use the WP-Amazon plugin huh? Any upgrades known? I like my amazon plug in lol.

    UGH I just disabled my wp-amazon plug in but I'm having the same problem. It's taking me to a blank screen. I'm even getting an ID number and still no image uptake??

    /wp-admin/media-upload.php?type=file&tab=library&post_id=124

    I had been having the exact same error - uploader opens in a new tab and then goes to blank page when I attempted to input into a post - on my site and found that the "Position Yourself" plugin had been the culprit.

    I still can't use the Flash uploader on one of my blogs (which is hosted on a different host) but it's fine on another....

    I have the exact same issue (new page opening instead of the iframe on 2.7 with Mac, Firefox, and Safari), but I don't have the Amazon Plugin.

    Here's my "Sanford and son" list: http://editweapon.com/?attachment_id=131

    Guess I'll just start disabling and see what happens.

    Same issues here for me.

    Timestamp edit does nothing.

    Media upload goes to a new tab, will not insert media into post.

    All plugins are deactivated.

    I've tried Firefox, Safari, Camino, and Opera on the mac. All behave exactly the same on this issue. All no go.

    On Vista I've tried IE and chrome... exact same result.

    This does not appear to be a mac issue. :-)

    I trust this is being looked into, lots of posts on this subject but no answer given had worked for me.

    OK...

    I am using the wp remix theme for this particular site.

    Because I had made edits to so many files, I chose to try to do a partial update to wp remix 2.3 (which is supposed to be compatible with wp 2.7).

    BUT... Upon doing a FULL replacement of the wp remix theme with 2.3 and then going through and updating with my altered files, (took a while)... all works fine.

    I suspect that for many users, if it's not a plugin causing the problem, it may be an incompatible theme.

    Same image upload problem here. Image loads to Media Library, but when I click "Insert in Post" I get redirected to a blank screen. The image never gets inserted into the post. Desperately searching for a solution! (Using WordPress 2.7)

    I am also experiencing this, and I don't have any of the plugins or themes so mentioned. (I'm using the default admin theme and the Royale theme in public) In fact, if I deactivate ALL my plugins, I don't see any difference in the behavior. So, I checked what my theme did to the source of the New Post page, and found that it does include extra JavaScript to every admin page. In Royale's case it needs this for its color picker. I was able to fix this with a patch to Royale. I have a patch for the file backend/theme_options.php here.

    For whatever is worth, I'm having similar problems. When I click to edit the time, it doesn't do anything and I'm having quirky issues with uploads as well. This happened to me with the default theme.

    After I read some of the other responses up here, I tried disabling plugins one at a time. I know this was working a few days ago so I deactivated plugins one at a time until it got fixed. I reactivated the plugin and the problem came back.

    So for now I've kept it disabled but I don't think *it* is the problem, I think it may be conflicting with something else.

    The plugin that I had to deactivate was Simple Tags by Amaury BALMER.

    For me, it turned out to be a Theme issue. I was using the WPRemix2 theme. I had to delete the code calling for the WPRemix2 Advanced Editor. After I did that, media uploads worked correctly.

    I can't upload or do anything with images, video, etc. whether it's in a post or on a page. When I click on the insert image button a new screen opens and this is what appears

    Warning: call_user_func_array() [function.call-user-func-array]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, 'media_admin_css' was given in /data/17/1/143/133/1632785/user/1760064/htdocs/bookblog/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 339

    I am a dummie so I have no idea how to fix this. I think it first started when I attempted to use the poopy caca WP remix theme templates which cost a lot (close to $200 is what I spent) and don't come with support, despite claims otherwise. These templates were so terrible that I had to delete the theme files from my file manager just to switch my theme back to the original. If anyone out there has spent good money on these templates beware! They not only don't work and seem to be constantly filled with bugs and major problems, they will screw up your files and you will never hear from Mr. Bhavesh, ever.

    If anyone can help identify what problem is with inserting or uploading images and how to fix it, I would be very grateful. Bearing in mind that any explanation has to be written for a complete dummy.

    Thank you.

    Same problem here using wp remix 2.0... @pop art where do you delete the code calling for the WPRemix2 Advanced Editor...

    Thanks

    @ppoivre
    In functions.php of your theme files, at the very bottom you will find the following code which you can just comment out or delete:

    //Remix Editor
    //include(TEMPLATEPATH . "/editor/remix_advanced_editor.php");

    I have been plagued by the image 'blank screen of death' problem as well and have been able to solve it! Hopefully this will work for you:

    1) Make sure there are no other tabs or open browser windows EXCEPT the one for your editing. I think the system gets confused and doesn't know which window to drop the image into. This solved 99% of my problems (in IE and Firefox) and nothing else that was suggested worked. I originally thought it was a browser problem. This also is related to an earlier post about domain masking. I mask my domains as well and this really confuses the admin. Use the registered URL in the general settings with the /wp-admin/ to get into the admin.

    2) If you are using WPMU do not use dashes or mix capital and lowercase letters in your blog name. This might also be true for wordpress, but I use MU. I think this has something to do with the permalink structure that was stated in an earlier post, and I think they are on the right track. But I removed a dash and a capital 'I' in one of my names and images were dropping in again.

    I have had this problem since upgrading to 2.6.5 and have been able to solve it for 50+ blogs using the above methodology through 2.7.

    I have this problem and I've noticed that in the working versions, there is a different code when you hover over a button in the add media bar.

    image&TB_iframe=true
    that's what i get in my non working version

    image&TB_iframe=true&width=640&height=487

    I have no idea why the entire code isn't appearing on both versions. I have 2.7 on both. On the non working, I went back to the original theme and disabled all plugs in.

    Is it possible that I need to clear my servers cache?

    I've had the same issue (really only an issue with older posts) and the time stamp (which oddly can be opened using quick edit), but the issue only seems to exists when I'm using IE - in Firefox everything seems to work fine - I'll try to the single window fix on IE later but I didn't want to lose this thread, and that is not really very functional.

    Also, thanks to the WordPress community! Still hammering out my theme but I'll have a WordPress link(s) up soon.

    I'm having the same problem. I recently consolidated to wordpress blogs, each with their own subdirectory (http://toomuchchocolate.org/interview and http://toomuchchocolate.org/gallery), into a single blog in the root folder. Instead of recreating both, I imported the 'gallery' blog into the 'interview' blog, then brought the interview blog to "http://toomuchchocolate.org" by simply copying the index.php file into the root folder, and making my blog url "http://toomuchchocolate.org/", while keeping the WordPress folder in the 'interview' subdirectory.

    I'm running the newest wordpress, 2.7, and I'm having the exact issue described. Images upload fine, I can see them before I insert into post, but then when I insert, they vanish. After they've been 'ghost uploaded' though I can go back in and manually tell wordpress to pull the image from the URL I uploaded to. So weird and annoying.

    I've tried everything above. My uploads are going into wp-content/uploads, as is the upload path in my phpmyadmin folder. I tried putting interview/wp-content/uploads, but it didn't work. Any ideas?

    The other thing: some of my images are loading as attachmentid's now. gah.

    another plugin called History Manager also caused my media uploader iframe to not work. If you have it, disable it and you will get ur iframe back and be able to insert posts.

    It was the Position Yourself plugin for me. Disabled it, and everything started working fine. Thanks everyone!

    I can't either. This is the error I get:

    Unable to create directory /var/www/vhosts/ontravel.com/httpdocs/wordpress/http://www.ontravel.com/images/2009/08. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    I've tried changing permissions. But to be honest, I feel like I have to have a degree in information systems to understand the WordPress manual when it's talking about how to. It's almost as if the writer of the manual wants everyone to know how much he knows so he fills it with a bevy of information I simply don't need to know and as such, the manual COMPLETELY FAILS and teaching me how to do it.

    JUST. TELL. ME. WHAT. TO. DO. I DON'T CARE about theory.

    In my case, I had an old version of Headspace that was generating a Javascript error. When I upgraded, it fixed the Javascript error and the Add Image button worked. So check to make sure your plugins are up-to-date!

    This is my error message trying to put an image in a post:
    "Warning: call_user_func_array() [function.call-user-func-array]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, 'media_admin_css' was given in /var/www/wordpress/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 339"

    WP 2.8.4
    Flexible upload 1.13

    I've searched for solutions, but it won't word . . . .?

    I am seeing this same issue using Opera 10 on both Ubuntu 8.10 and Vista SP2.

    I disabled all plugins and tested both of the default themes to no avail. I am not able to "Insert into post".

    In this condition I was able to insert using Firefox.

    This suggests it's a problem in the WP JavaScript (and that this JS occasionally conflicts with script in themes or plugins as well).

    If anyone knows one of the devs, please point them at this information as this needs to be fixed in WP.
