Insert Media not working (13 posts)

    I recently updated to the new WP version and now I can't insert into my post. I click and it freezes. I have updated all plugins, tried using Firefox -- nothing is working. Please help.

    Can you clarify what you mean by "it freezes"? Does your browser freeze? the uploader freeze? or what exactly "freezes"?

    One possible solution is that mod_security on your webserver is blocking the uploads, I had a similar issue recently.

    Thank you for your response! It just sits there when I click "insert into post" -- nothing happens. How can I try to see if its the "mod_security"?

    Talk to your web host to see if there are any errors in your modsec_audit_log or in error_log for your site.

    I had the same problem. I just deactivated all my plugins and then went and tried it and it worked fine, so it could be interference from another plugin. Easiest way is to inactivate all at once. Once you have it working you can reactivate the plugins or if you want to take the time you can reactivate one at a time to find out which one is causing the problem.

    That's also a great way to problem-solve this. I agree, give that a shot as well.

    Hey guys -- I deactivated all of my plugins and switched my theme. Now, I can get photos uploaded, but they won't insert into the post. When I click "insert into post," the page just sits and does nothing, and no images post into the blog entry.

    This still isn't working. I tried all of those things listed.

    My problem is that it will not allow me to insert multiple media. For 1 media works fine. When I select more than 1 it just hangs - no bug report, just can't insert more than 1 at a time. But it allows me to select.

    I've got the same problem in the latest version of WordPress. Re-install doesn't solve the problem :(

    I want to create WordPress on the subpage there...

    @vectorinformatics and @Akrsk - these forums work much better if you create your own threads instead of posting in one that is quite outdated.

    You can start a new thread here:
