    I have a brand new installation of WordPress, and I have upgraded to v3.5. Now, every time I go to upload media, it shows as broken where the images will not display.

    I have had similar problems, and I have resolved them by using FTP to upload media files directly into my Uploads folder and then using this plugin...

    ...to bring the file names on into the registry. And if you might want some cool options far beyond that, here is another neat plugin I have found:

  3. @leejosepho: those are not relevant suggestions. There is no reason to go to third party plugins to replace core WP functions.

    @almz: you have a plugin or theme conflict after the upgrade; take a look at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-35-master-list?replies=4 abd see if that helps. If not, ask your webhost; they may have some restrictions on their file system.

    I respect your right to share whatever kind of opinion, but not your scolding demeanor. The actual experience I have shared is completely valid, and those plugins come from folks with booths right here at wordpress.org! In any case, however, and for whatever reason, I have to deal with Maximum upload file size: 10MB. and do not know (and am not asking for) any other way to do what I need done.

  5. I'm not questioning your experience; I'm questioning your advice.

    There is no reason to go to third party plugins to replace core WP functions There is no need for third party plugins that change the basic upload function for a user when the issue is simply getting uploading to work from a theme/plugin conflict.

    Change your maximum upload size in php.ini or in .htaccess. Or ask your host. You probably don't have to deal with an upload limit like that, and that shouldn't be the basis of your advice to others with upload problems that haven't been qualified.

    Thanks everyone for the help!
    @songdogtech It appears it did have something to do with my web host. So far they have fixed the images displaying, and now I'm waiting for them to fix the featured images as those still display as broken.

  7. Good, but featured images might have to do with the theme you're using. The first issue might have been server permissions.

    I apologize for cluttering this thread with yet another response from me, and here is that apology: I have Asperger's Syndrome, a bit like "Rain Man" (but maybe at least just a tad more functional ;-) ), and I share that only to explain that I have a very literal, one-thought/thing-at-a-time mind that had offered no advice at all here, only my actual experience...and I then almost always and consciously leave it to others to decide for themselves as to what to do or to not do with whatever experience I might have shared. And truly, I do mean and try to not be giving you or anyone at all any grief here...and all is well between you and me here at my keyboard.
