Thumbnails not showing only in featured image window. (8 posts)

    Hey all, just upgraded to WP 3.5.1

    Now, when I want to upload or select an image to use for a featured image, this happens.

    The new media window is called up correctly.

    I can upload a picture just fine, but it displays a 'broken' thumbnail. As well, ALL other images have broken thumbnails - so it then becomes difficult to tell which one I'd like to use, other than file name.

    When I save it, the space where it would show the featured image in the post is also a broken thumnail HOWEVER, when I publish the post - the thumbnail shows up and it works perfectly on the front end.

    I'm using the Non-Profit theme from Organic Themes.

    I have disabled ALL plugins by renaming the plugins folder. Same problem.

    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.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Yes, I've deactivated all plugins.

    Yes, I've reset the plugins folder.

    Yes, I have tried using the default theme.

    Where would I download those files to reupload the WP files?

    And so, I'll reupload all files EXCEPT the wp-content folder?

    I'm having the same problem. I just upgraded from 3.4 to 3.5. I've tried 3.5, 3.51, and 3.52. All of my media seems to show up everywhere fine except when I'm creating / editing a post or page and click on "add featured image". When I do that, none of the thumbnails load on the popup.

    I have tried deleting all of the plugins and using the default theme with no luck. Anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?
