  • No one has the same problem?

    It seems you have disabled JavaScript. The uploader needs it to be able to work.

    No, I’ve tried accessing it from three different computers, using different browsers, it’s the same on all three.

    Perhaps update to the latest version, clear browser’s cache and try again. Also check for js errors and disable any active plugins. From the first screenshot it seems that some of the js is not running properly.

    Older plugins can break stuff on that screen too. Disable all your plugins, clear the cache, refresh the page. See if they come back. If so, find out what plugin is breaking things.

    I deactivated all plugins and cleared the browser cache, still the same problem …

    I’m using the latest version I think (2.7 beta 3)

    Try turning off the Rich Text Editor?

    Also what browser is that? Obviously Firefox but which version? Does it work on a different Browser? You may have something wild set on your browser.

    It’s the same with Firefox, IE, Opera.

    How do I turn off the rich text editor?

    On this blogpost:

    There is a line that reads:

    ” Media upload buttons won’t show if the user doesn’t have the upload capability. “

    But I’m the only user, and admin of my WordPress install.

    Turning off RTE, go to /wp-admin/profile.php and check ‘Disable the visual editor when writing’

    Check the permissions on the uploads folder. If you go to /wp-admin/options-misc.php you can see what folder it thinks it’s going to.

    turning off the Rich Text Editor does nothing, the permissions on the uploads folder are correct. Remember, I can upload files correctly through /wp-admin/media-new.php. I just don’t see the icons above the write box. In full screen mode, I see the icons, but they’re greyed out. So I can’t insert anything into a post.

    When you go to the write page, do you get any errors in the Error Console?

    Those image links live or die by Javascript. Somehow, your javascript is broken on your site. Until you find where and why, they will never appear.

    These are the error I get in the Firefox Error Console when I open the write page:


    They all have to do with jQuery


    Your site is missing the jquery files.

    http://www.zzillezz.net/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js gives a 404 error. It should give the jquery javascript instead.

    Reupload the WordPress files to your site, and be certain that you upload ALL the files. If the first upload missed those files, others may have been missed as well.

    Thanks Otto42, that solved the problem.
    I don’t know why the files weren’t there. Two files were missing from the jquery folder. I uploaded those two files, and everything works!

    On the dashboard, the WordPress development blog and WordPress news also load now.

    Thanks for the help!
