Upgraded to 2.8 and can't upload images (35 posts)

    I just upgraded to 2.8, and now I can't upload images. When I try, it tarts uploading them, then instead of showing the file after it's compressed, it asks me to log-in again for each of the images I'm trying to upload. When I try to sign in, nothing happens. Any ideas?

    The Flash uploader is the only one I'm having problems with. The browser uploader is fine, but will take forever when trying to ad a 12-20 pic gallery. Any help would be appreciated.

    If you are using Gears with WordPress, and Firefox, try disabling Gears.

    Unfortunately, that didn't work. I'm using Google Chrome. Everything worked fine before upgrading.

    I have same problem.

    Google Gears works good with WP2.8, maybe new flash uploader has a new bug?

    I've been finding loads of issues with 2.8 now. Best solution? Stick with what works: 2.7.1.

    I have the same problem. If I use the normal upload it works, but I need the flash uploader!! Maybe is a problem from the flash version?

    With all due respect to the people who work hard on this project, so far, I don't like any of the changes made between 2.7.1 and 2.8. I still haven't gotten the above problem fixed I know I'm not the only one looking for help), and there are a lot of other changes - especially in he admin section - I can't stand. Going back to 2.7.1 right now. Hope you guys get the help you need.

    Yep, the upload buttons don't work. Nor do the pop-up admin menus allows show when you hover over them!

    I am using Safari, but have checked in Firefox too.

    WP2.8 looks like a very poorly tested release!!!

    I have down-graded back to WP 2.7.1, WP 2.8 seems poorly tested, I'd recommend staying clear until the point update to fix the rough edges!!!

    Well, I just found out that I have to stick with 2.8 thanks to my hosting company requiring that I keep the latest version of any software I have on the site. So, I really hope they get these bugs fixed.

    I noticed that there are some tag management plugins that were messing with the image uploader in the posts. I disabled them and all was good again.

    Right, this version somehow seems to screw with images big time...

    I can upload, but the images donĀ“t attach to the post. Since I use a theme that uses get_image to display thumbs, it is completely screwed up.

    Can PLEASE somebody help the crowd? I guess there are many people with this prob...

    How do you downgrade? I would give anything to go back to 2.7.1...BIG TIME!! Which files do I need to replace to get 2.7.1 working again?

    Yep, I'm having the same issue with the Flash Uplaoder. Just says "HTTP Error". Worked fine in 2.7.1

    I've added a Trac bug fix request for this:

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/10153

  22. By the way, I used the Core Updater to upgrade to WordPress 2.8. I just tried uploading an image using the image uploader in the post write panel and it uploaded just fine with no errors.

    I have spent some more time figuring out what is wrong with WP 2.8. As I suspected it's a plug-in issue. Specifically, in my case, the plug-in causing fault was Click-Tags. I don't think Andy Staines, the plug-in's author, is supporting this plug-in anymore. Doh!

    I have now upgraded successfully to WP 2.8.

    So, I'd recommend to the other contributors to this thread; deactivate all your plug-ins and then re-activate them one at a time and find out where WP breaks, that last activated plug-in is the one to put in the trash! :-(

    It would be nice if there was more testing of WP releases before they get out in to the wild. Especially with plug-in compatibility. But, it's amazing (free) software none-the-less, so I'm not grumbling, just wishing... :-)

    I don't know if this helps but this issue applies to one site I have, using Firefox and Chrome but not when I use IE8, with NO plugins activated.
    However another site on the same server works fine across all browsers.
    The browser uploader works fine across all combinations.

    Yup, after going through thorough research and proposed fixes, not to mention that one plug-in that promises the http fix, I finally did what others recommended here. I deactivated all of my plug-ins and that did the trick. The plug-in which caused me the headache was (drum roll) "NextGEN Gallery." I hope this helps others.

    I have deactivated all my plugins and my Dashboard is still completely messed up. I have asked my hosting company to restore everything and hoping I can get back to 2.7.1.

    Totally weird behaviour. Not consistent between sites. When I clicked on the toolbar button the NextGen popup, it didn't, it opened at the bottom of the edit page.

    So I gave up, deleted all files except the wp-content folder and the config and .htaccess files, uploaded wp 2.71 again. Sweet. Then I try to auto-install TinyMCE Advanced, no-go needs at least 2.8! Ah ha, so I check it out on another installation, all working fine.

    Back to the original site, auto update again to 2.8, install TinyMCE Advanced. Activate, test nextGen, OK, deactivate TinyMCE Advanced test nextGen still works. Reactivate TinyMCE Advanced, still OK.

    Frontend? NextGen singlepics open 'loading' (thickbox) waiting waiting. Deactivate nextGen, reactivate. Thickbox popup now works perfectly.

    Appears to be a little weird JavaScript in-compatibility, maybe it's the order of the js includes? Someone might be able to tell us if these change order depending on when they are installed?

    So any answers? Nup. But worth persisting.

    I restored my site and databases (took over 2 days), deactivated all plugins, activated one by one. I found I had an issue with the Gixax Chat plugin not allowing the widgets to be moved.

    I now seem to be able to upload pics (at least the box displays in NextGen plugin.

    Widgets worked weird at first but seem to be OK now. It says I am running 2.8 still but the Dashboard is at least back.

    I am praying it stays OK.

    I have the same problem too. I am sure it will be fix in 2.8.1. For the mean time, I guess I have to settle with the plain old browser uploader.

    For some reason my flash uploader suddenly decided to start working again. I was messing around with a post, and thought "What the hell, I'll try it." It worked. Not fluidly like it did before, and it's real choppy and slow, but it works. Another thing - after uploading the images, I have to refresh the page before adding the gallery or else I won't be able to do anything else with the post (save draft, preview, etc).
