    I am not able to set a feature image after updating to 3.5

    I was able to do it before with no problem @ all.

    I already tried from different computers and different browsers and the problem is the same.

    "Error IMAGE NAME.jpg An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later."

    The photo is uploaded to the media library just no showing on the "Set Feuture Image" option to select it

    I am using Minimatica theme version 1.0.8.

    My issue is that I am unable to Remove the featured image; clicking the on the Remove featured image does nothing (tested with Chrome Version 23.0.1271.97 and Firefox Version 17.0.1).

    Just in case you haven't checked this out yet http://wpthemetutorial.com/2012/12/13/new-media-manage-in-wordpress-3-5-video-walkthrough/

    Some users are clicking the "set fetured image" on the left, after they select the image, and that doesn't work.

    You have to first click "set feature image" in the menu on the left, then use the drop down selector to choose where the image will come from.

    then click the image in the grid, it will appear on the right with a new "set featured image" button below

    1. Open the post
    2. Go to Feature image option
    3. Select Set feature image
    4. Select Upload Files
    5. Browse for the image
    6. Try to upload it and receive
    7. An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later.

    ** If i select all media items nothing is being displayed!

    Sound more like an upload problem, can you otherwise upload to the media library or to a post?

    I just tried it with a newly uploaded featured image and it worked for me.

    Themes and plugins, 99% of the time. Should always be the first thing we check out. Good luck with it.

    I'm having the same problem right after the update.

    I'm not using any plugins at the moment, but am using a custom theme "minimatica"

    My featured image is working fine after the upgrade. Maybe there is a compatibility issue with your custom theme. I'm using the default Twenty Twelve with the static Homepage Template that has a featured image, no sidebar and two widgets at the bottom so it has a "website" look. Added the blog in the custom menu. Perhaps your custom theme Minimatica has a forum and you could check to see if anyone else is having that issue or you could contact the theme creator. Good luck. In case this is of help here is a recent video tutorial for adding the custom image http://studiomediacam.com/photography/add-custom-featured-image-on-homepage-theme-twenty-twelve/

    for a new post with no images:

    1)click "select featured image" in the left sidebar

    2)select the "upload files" tab at the top

    3)select file, upload.

    4)Immediately after upload, the media library images appear in the main grid, the one you just uploaded should be at the top.

    5)double click the image you just uploaded.

    6)The selected image will appear in the side menu on the right, from there click the "set featured image" button at the bottom of the right sidebar.

    they should make it so it redirects to the "uploaded to this post" after upload, instead of redirect to the media library.

    Also, the "Upload Files" screen should be the default view for a new post or a post with no images, instead of the media library.

    I found both of these things confusing, hung me up a bit at first, and I've nbeen using wp for years.

    hmm, actually, maybe that explains it(haha)

    Hmm, I'm using Chrome. I've tested IE for some things, but haven't tried it for this process yet.

    I've seen a number of "fixes" that say to click 'select featured image' in the left sidebar, but that confuses me. The only place I see that link available is at the very bottom of the right sidebar while I'm in the dashboard editing a page.

    I have noticed that even though it says it fails to upload, it actually is in the media library; however, when I go to a post or page and try to add media and try to browse to the media library, it says it is empty.

    I modified my version so I may screw one file cause it is not even showing images to select as a feature image.

    Hi,
    I was reading other forum posts about this problem and found a suggestion that worked and was easy to implement.
    In your functions.php file, find this line of code:
    add_filter( 'ext2type', 'minimatica_mime_types' );

    and replace it with this:
    add_filter( 'ext2type', 'minimatica_file_types' );

    This completely fixed the featured images problem for me.

    I am using 3.5.1 WordPress when I try to post a picture to my post and upload it I get this error. "An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later." The picture does not show in my library until I dismiss the error and do a search. I can then post it. I have reverted back to 3.4 WordPress. I have changed my theme to several different ones. I have deactivated all my plugins. I can go to Media in the admin panel and see my picture in the library. If I try to upload a new image it just shows full crunching and nothing else until I switch to the library and then it shows it.

    I can't seem to work this problem out. I am using FireFox

    @rickmick - per the forums guidelines, please start your own thread - it's very unlikely your issue is identical to this thread.
