[closed] WP 3.8.1 Set featured image not working, no images showing (23 posts)

    The Set Featured Image thing used to work... but I think after I upgraded to 3.8.1, it stopped working (though not positive).

    When I click it, it loads the popup, but none of the previously uploaded images are loading.

    Then, when I click upload, it uploads the photo, I can change the details (title, description, etc), then I click "Set Featured Image", and the window closes, but nothing is happening.

    So, there is definitely an issue that wasn't there before...

    1) No images show when I go to the media library from within a post... when I go to Media >> Library from the sidebar menu, all of the images, including the ones I uploaded with Set featured Image, all show fine.

    2) The Set Featured Image isn't functioning.

    Things I have already tried to fix it:
    -- Disabled all plugins
    -- Used the default theme
    -- re-installed 3.8.1

    Any ideas??

    Have you tried using a different browser? Perhaps the JavaScript used for setting a featured image isn't running properly in your browser.

    Thanks for the idea...

    I use Chrome, and I tried it in Opera and Firefox and it does the same exact thing.

    Any other ideas??

    Other things not working:

    Creating a new custom field.

    Are you seeing issues with JavaScript-driven tasks anywhere else in WordPress admin (such as quick edit of posts)?

    I just tried Quick Edit for a post (adding an exclamation point to a title, and when I click Update, the gray circle with little white circle moving around loading sign just keeping going around...

    So, if that is a javascript-driven task, then yah.

    Yes, that's operated by JavaScript. However, since the UI functions are working properly, I have a feeling the issue lies in the AJAX calls being made to the server.

    I did some searching, and it looks like some people who have had AJAX issues in the past have had success by adding the following to their wp-config.php file:

    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);

    Try that, and let me know if it works.

    I tried that... no luck.

    Have you tried setting up a separate subdomain with a completely brand new install of WordPress? That could help determine whether it's site-specific or server-wide.

    I'm having problems with 3.8.1. So far neither Quick Edit nor the permalink Edit button work. I tried Firefox, Safari, Chrome.

    Sorry to bug you... the Add Media button doesn't work either.

    Hi,

    I have the EXACT same issue as you have breakaway11.
    A complete fresh install of wordpress 3,8,1 on a new website didn't give these issues.

    Any progress on this?

    Thanks,

    No, it is still not working...

    That said, I ended up setting a custom field to accept a URL, and to show that custom field in the place of my featured image...

    It requires a knowledge of the wordpress codex and themes.

    great!
    I think however that's out of my reach… :)

    Could this be related to the server where the website is hosted?
    everything works fine using the same setup, wp version and database but another host.

    If so, what would be the options?

    Thanks,

    breakaway11,

    Did you try setting up a new install of WordPress on a separate subdomain? That would help us narrow down whether it's a server configuration issue or a site-specific one.

    I am also having the same issue since the upgrade. Old images are not showing but new images will show as a featured image. Rather than download, change the name and re-upload every image i'm still searching. Will post here if i get a result.

    Bump for this. Spent all night looking around but the only solutions proposed is to re upload everything.
