[resolved] Insert images in WP 2.7 not working (46 posts)

    Hi there, I'm having an issue with the insert image option in WP 2.7. Whenever I upload images to use in a post, I go to Insert Image > Gallery and then the list of images pops up, but nothing happens when I click on the "Show" link.

    Is there something I should update on my end aside from the installation? I did delete the wp-admin and includes folder and then replaced them with the ones in the zip file, so no overwrites.

    Are there any js errors? What happens if you upload a single image only?

    Thank you for replying! There aren't any js errors, when I upload a single image it lets me edit it after it finishes uploading, but say I edit it and put it in the post. If I try to go back and edit it again, it won't let me because nothing happens when I click on "Show" in the Media Gallery.

    it works fine for me .
    does [gallery] short code works for you ?

    That's strange. Don't think the js that opens/closes the individual image properties has changed much since 2.6. Could you try another browser? If you're on Windows there are quite a few that should work well: FF, Safari, Chrome, Opera, IE...

    @astromono

    Update your flash player and Java
    or try the browser upload

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'm running on a Mac, so I'll try it with Safari and see what happens, don't know there is a new flash player or java for Firefox 3 for Mac, but I'll look it up.

    BTW Java has nothing to do with Javascript (yes, they sound alike) and is not used anywhere in WordPress.

    I upgraded to 2.7 today and everything seems to be working accept the single image insert. Did not try the gallery yet, but the problem seems the same. I'm stuck at the Show button screen.

    Hi there, I'm having an issue with the insert image option in WP 2.7. Whenever I upload images to use in a post, I go to Insert Image > Gallery and then the list of images pops up, but nothing happens when I click on the "Show" link.

    I see all pictures I uploaded in the Media section, so the upload was okay.

    Also I switched the Tweaks plugin, which previously disabled the flash uploader (didn't work), on and off. Without any luck.
    I'm working with FF and Mac OSX.

    Alright, I already have the latest Java, so I went and updated Flash to the latest 10.x.x version and then I tried editing an image that I had already uploaded in a draft post, but I couldn't get it done.

    For some reason, I keep going to the Media Gallery within the post and everytime I click in the Show link, nothing happens.

    @dan.safari, I'm not using the gallery short codes, because the new version of WP changed them, and now I think its [gallery id=x], but im not sure, thats not really the problem i'm having

    @BvM yeah, that's exactly the problem I'm having! I think we're close to calling it a Mac OSX-only bug. :(

    The Show/Hide seems to be working well here in both Safari 3.2.1 and FF 3.0.4 on Leopard (10.5.5).

    @astromono: no, the [gallery] shortcode works exactly like in 2.6, the difference is that in 2.7 there's an addition to the Gallery tab in the uploader that would allow you to set some of the options for the gallery.

    @azaozz I have the same setup as you do in (Safari, OSX and FF), but still not going anywhere with the show/hide. Perhaps it's plugin or maybe the installation I did?

    @astromono I have a similar set up. I'm able to see the image by clicking on the 'show' link. I can close the post and edit it again and I'm able to get to the image.

    As for the gallery, now I'm making progress. In the previous version when I clicked ont he gallery tab I did not get anything; I just got a blank window. Now I get the expected results and I even get the 'insert gallery' button but the images do not display on the post...

    @cipote I was able to work with WP normally before I upgraded to 2.7, but I still haven't got to the bottom of the problem. It affects everything related to the media galleries, including the Next-Gen Gallery plugin.

    I tried deactivating that plugin and trying to edit, but nothing worked.

    I am on MAC OSX and FF. Under 2.6, after inserting an image, moving the mouse over it and then clicking, the image opens (to full size). Under 2.7 that does not work anymore. Can't open the image as before. Earlier postings still work as before but not the new ones. Otherwise all looks OK.

    @astromono I'm not sure what happened, but the single image insert now works. The only thing (I think) that I changed was updating several plugins, like Headspace, but also NextGen which was switched off already. I'm about to test SimpleViewer.

    Also I tried to insert an image with a Windows XP computer and that worked fine too. Hope you'll get your fix as well!

    @BvM OMG! lol! I just woke up, checked it and it works! It's like magic! I mean, it fixed in the exact same way and I have no clue whatsoever what happened!

    I'm leaning towards the cache getting refreshed, but I'm not sure, because I did update all my plugins and deleted my cache yesterday! At least it's working now, so I CAN WORK!

    Thanks to everyone for the help!

    OK. Found the problem. In the image details, section "Link URL" I have to click now "File URL" and all is well (before there was no need to do this). Now I still have to figure out what is this invisible "Flash uploader".

    @astromono yes, the problem most likely was cache related. Unfortunately it's not just your browser cache on your computer, it can be (as in this case) a stale file(s) in a caching proxy or net cache somewhere between you and your server.

    That used to happen a lot more often couple of years ago. The only way is to wait until that cache is refreshed (shouldn't be more than 24 hours).

    @bjprc when you click File URL, it would remember that and next time should pre-select it automatically.

    I'm also having problems since upgrading to 2.7. I can open the media library and see all the files but I can't add them to a post. The Flash uploader is missing. I can browser upload a new image to the media library and see it there. But I'm unable to upload it in any way to my post.

    I'm fairly new to WordPress and this is my first upgrade - from 2.6. I used the automatic upgrade plugin.

    Update: I was able to browser upload from my computer in Safari. In Firefox, everything goes to almost black and just hangs. No Flash uploader in either browser. I'm on Mac - Tiger O/S

    Is there anything I can check as to why the built in Gallery is not working? I can upload the images, I can insert them into the post one by one...
    The only thing that's not working is the gallery shortcode.
    I use [gallery] and nothing shows up?

    @cipote I looked into your issue and found this thread

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/222511?replies=8

    In it they say that a plugin may be causing the problem. Try disabling any plugins that use js and then try to use the shortcode. If you don't know which plugins use js, then just try disabling any plugins that deal with images first, like next gen gallery.

    @marywy2 have you tried updating your Flash? It's possible that's a probable cause of the problem, but otherwise I really wouldn't know what's causing it.

    @astromono
    Thank you very much for the info you provided me. I have deactivated all plugins and I'm still having problems with the shortcode [gallery] not working. I even reinstalled 2.7 again. One thing I notice after the automatic update of 2.7 is that the admin area is more responsive...

    I have to keep looking for a fix I guess...

    I'm having the same problem since I upgraded to 2.7. I upload an image, and it appears to be in the media library, but I can't insert it into a post. My computer is an HP Compag running windows xp. I use the firefox browser. I've tried uploading images in flash and in the browser based upload. I don't have the nextgen or headspace plug-ins. When I click on image on the media library page, I don't see an image. What can I do?

    I'm having troubles with blastmagazine.com also

    Since upgrading to 2.7, our [gallery] galleries using the standard WordPress gallery with no plugins are not functioning.

    See: http://blastmagazine.com/the-magazine/technology/2008/11/download-updatestar-25-free-from-blast/

    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'wp_posts.ID DESC' at line 1]
    SELECT wp_posts.* FROM wp_posts WHERE 1=1 AND wp_posts.post_parent = 6001 AND (post_mime_type LIKE 'image/%') AND wp_posts.post_type = 'attachment' ORDER BY ,wp_posts.ID DESC

    Any help is much appreciated!

    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!)

    Hello. I've been experiencing the same issue as astromono.

    Oddly enough, the Show link doesn't work on the Galley tab, but it does work on the Media Library tab.

    I've tried disabling all plugins, using IE/FF/Safari on PC, clearing that cache etc.

    Has anyone figured out exactly why this is happening?

    Hi

    I don't really understand why this post has been marked as 'Resolved'.... I've got the same issue here: I installed 2.7 yesterday, and I can't upload any pictures to my blog now.
    Actually, yes, I can : 1 picture at a time, and only if I right-click on the 'Add a picture' icon (sorry, I use a French version of WordPress, so I'm not sure of the exact English name) and choose 'Open in a new tab').

    I'm running Vista, and I tried with IE 7, Firefox 3.0.x and the latest Safari.... Doesn't look much like a browser issue to me....

    Please fix this issue !
