Support » Fixing WordPress » Adding images to Media Library fails

  • When trying to add entries to the media library, it stalls ‘crunching’

    I’m having the same problem even after deactivating all plugins and trying a different theme. This started after installing 3.6

    Checking the server directory, the files are in the upload folder but not being added tot the media library.

    This means ImageMagick (or possibly GD Image) isn’t working on your server.

    See if your temp folder on the server is full, or check your PHP error log. If you don’t know how, ask your webhost. They should be able to help.

    Thanks you, Thank you, Thank you.

    I have been looking for a fix for weeks.

    The php log showed
    ‘WordPress database error Field ‘post_expire’ doesn’t have a default value for query INSERT INTO wp_posts ….’

    By adding a default value as per every other date in the table, it worked fine.

    This must be a problem with the install/upgrade as it worked perfectly prior to 3.6

    Thanks again
