Issues with uploading images & media library (6 posts)

    So I've tried everything in this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/25-imagemedia-uploader-problems?replies=1

    I've had no luck. Basically, whenever I try to add an image/video/etc to the media library, whether through the library directly or from within a post/page, I encounter problems. I select my asset and hit upload, and the progress bar shows that the asset is uploading, reaches 100% and then any indication that i uploaded something is gone. This happens whether I use the Flash Uploader or the Browser Uploader. The assets are actually making it to the server though. If I ftp into the uploads directory, they're there, but they aren't getting processed by WordPress as far as I can tell, because there's only the original file, not the resized file for thumbnails.

    I haven't been able to come across any other thread on here where someone is encountering these issues but the file actually makes it to the server. Any suggestions?

    Check with your hosts that GD Library is installed on your server.

    sorry, forgot to add this, but it worked when i first set everything up, and randomly stopped working for no reason as far as I can tell. I didn't perform any updates or add new themes/plugins or anything that would have caused it to break.

    edit: just checked the phpinfo file on the server and it claims GD is installed and enabled.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    yes, I've tried both of those with no luck.

    It does sound to me like there's an issue with GD Library. Perhaps you need to check with your hosts that the latest version is installed?
