  • Same problem here – Safari, most current release, WP 3.5, Mountain Lion on an imac.

    Is anyone able to help us?

    Have you tried both upload choices, the browser and the multi file loader?

    I turned off all my plugins and then it worked. I have been turning them on again, slowly but surely, and am so far still in luck. Will post again when I find the culprit.

    So far, the plugin that messed up media uploads and library display is Sell Media from Graph Paper Press. I’ve tried enabling and disabling it several times and am getting consistent results. Once it’s off, everything seems to work fine.

    In the Media section is just gets stuck crunching and shows no error, although the file shows up in the uploaded files list okay.

    If I upload manually it just stops on a blank white page.

    I have the same problem – firefox, safari, chrome – then I realized, like cbh, I do have the sell media with GPP. So when I deactivated that – the photos showed up. Thanks cbh!

    Getting the same error. Rolling back my update.

    I’m also getting this error, though the images do appear in the media library. They don’t, however, appear in the Insert Media window, which appears empty. I’ve turned off ALL plugins and switched to the TwentyTen theme. The problem isn’t resolved.

    I reverted to 3.4.2 and things are no working again.



    Same problem here. Using iPad/Safari and Windows 7/Chrome. Also, it doesn’t work using the iOS app.

    Despite the error, the image has still uploaded but IT HASN’T PROCESSED SIZES. So, when I add the image as a thumbnail from the Media Library, the full size image is displayed in the Featured Image meta box. Which obviously is not what should be happening.

    Okay will do.

    But Tom Lynch (and others), try this:

    • Deactivate all plugins
    • Re-install WordPress
    • Re-activate plugins one-by-one

    Worked for me. Images now upload without error and are processed correctly to produce Large, Medium and Thumbnail versions.

    @lukejanicke I have tried this and it doesn’t fix it but the issue is identical to that which you describe!

    I just tried a reinstall of WordPress and disabling all the plugins twice, it still doesn’t work for large images or those with certain characters in the name. Please can I get some help as this has been going on for ages and I have tried everything I can think of.
