    Exact same problem for me.

    The steps in:

    are too generic / posted 1 year ago.

    Any fixes? This is a critical issue for me.

    Ditto here. This is really annoying:(

    I reverted to 2.7.1.

    The inability to control galleries in 2.8 makes it unusable for me, as I am not directly inserting images into my post textfields but pulling them out via get_attachments.

    I had a similar problem and figured out that the culprit in my case was the tagaroo plugin v1.2.1. I disabled it and now it works just fine. With Tagaroo enabled whenever I clicked the insert image icon nothing would happen in either IE8 or Firefox3. So I re-installed, but that didn't solve the problem. Then I found that in the dashboard clicking on the insert image button in the QuickPress section works fine! So I figured it must be some plugin that gets activated in the post editor. So I turned all off and then one-by-one turned them back on. That's how I determined that the Tagaroo plugin was the problem for me. After deactivating it I am able to insert images without any issues.

    Hope that helps someone,
    David Vielmetter

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your input, I deactivated all plugins and still experienced the issue.

    I believe there is a workaround – saving a post as draft before attaching any images will fix the problem?

    Can anyone else confirm that?

    I'm having a similar problem.
    The image seems to upload (I get a 100% upload progress) but then nothing else happens.

    I'm surprised there's not a lot of talk about this, cause it seems to me it's quite a critical issue.

    We're getting exactly the same problem - I've installed 2.8 on a new website with no data in it and it's fine, but on the existing website with loads of data, the file uploader has now stopped working.

    Yes, same problem. I've deactivated all plugins with no positive result. I've also desabled gears and activated the default theme and nothing worked, I can't get to upload images. When I use flash uploader I get a HTTP error message, when I use the other uploader I get something like a broken link and a blank space in the image rectangle of the gallery.

    Right, this actually happened to me as well even in 2.7.1 I have posted serveral times and have not received a good answer. I am stuck with using HTML to place my pictures. Its really making life tough, and NOW after upgrading to 2.8 I apparently have lost permissions. I cant even get into my control pannel at all.

    @glutenfreepost, @siempreconusted, your problem sounds slightly different to what vineetsharma1986 documented, my experience is exactly the same as his/hers, after 2.8 upgrade, image uploads fine but shows an empty gallery after saving (see screengrab).

    I found this not to be related to any plugins. My current workaround was to save the post as a draft before trying to upload any images.

    If someone else could confirm this, that would be great – vineetsharma / da3M0n ?

    I'm also having issues uploading any images to posts, pages, and to media. No thumbnail or image appears in the media gallery or associated posts or pages.

    For now, my workaround has been to insert images with URL instead of uploading to the gallery. However, this won't work for the long term since other users can't upload.

    I may be forced to downgrade to 2.7 until this starts working properly.

    Bump - having similar issues here. My upload/insert media buttons aren't responding.

    I'm having the same issue. I get no response to clicking on the media buttons. It's happening in both safari and firefox.

    Also, I can't drag and drop any widgets on that page.

    my problem is different.

    you click on the image to upload a picture or video and the pop up doesn't appear. It feels like it has been disabled. In fact, any item that is not a button is disabled....so if I click on help nothing happens either...It's lots of things but the image uploading is the problem I need to solve most.

    bulldogmi, I just tried upgrading a different blog to 2.8 using another method (Not the automated upgrade) and the media upload button is working fine there. I'm guessing my other blog's upgrade was botched. I'll be reverting then giving it another go.

    so, your visual editor is working? It appears my entire visual editor is down.

    My visual editor is OK. But even after reverting and then reinstalling the update, I still had issues. Ended up disabling my plugins one at a time till I found the culprit.

    Which plugin was the culprit? This may save others time also. Thanks.

    Mine was wp-marketer. The old sticky post on this issue had mentioned troubleshooting plugins for other issues because of possible javascript conflicts.

    Having the same issue, nothing happens when I select an Upload/Insert button, very annoying.

    Has anyone had success with a reinstall of 2.8? What is the simplest way to revert to 2.7?

    Fixed it for myself, the Position Yourself plugin was the issue for me, which didn't do a damn thing anyway.

    I would definitely go through one by one and just disable any non critical plugins.

    I have an "uploads" path issue with images
    "uploads" does no exist, but image info after upload indicates the files are in this folder. Actually they are not (checked with ftp)
    files are in
    /wordpress/wp-content
    and not
    /wordpress/wp-content/uploads

    I have just installed a fresh WP 2.8. (On this server I run some other WP sites as well)
    I can confirm, that the media uploader was not working. I was able to ad posts, pages, but after clicking the image upload button nothing happened.
    Downgraded to 2.7.1 - all works as it should.

    My issue with non-responsive media buttons got cured by disabling the Podpress plugin.
