    It was late and I was attempting to delete one photo that I had loaded twice. However I was on the wrong page and I inadvertently either “turned off” or deleted my gallery? Consequently, I can no longer view my photos, see theme preview, all of my editing buttons have lost their icons. I desperately needed an “undo” function last night. Anyway I’d love to have it back does anyone know how to do that? Any help would be great. THANKS!

  • Again, just more info.
    I definitely turned something off in error but it happened so fast that I am uncertain of the correct language used thus I am having a hard time finding help to restore my previous settings. I think I disabled my gallery? My editing and sidebar / editing buttons have NO icons. My photos are in my media library but I cannot view them. If I click on Manage Themes I cannot preview anything on that page however i can preview images in the Install Theme page. I have tried to install other themes in an effort to restore my previous settings with no luck. The best way I can describe it is that it like gmail…I feel like I should be able to check or click a “Display Images Below” link but I can’t find one. Clearly I removed this setting I just cannot figure out how to restore it. Complete user error but this newbie needs help. Thanks!

    really frustrated. I completely uninstalled word press and was willing to start the entire process over. I removed all files and reinstalled. Same problem

    I think I disabled my gallery?

    You cannot disable the native WordPress gallery functionality.

    Do you know what page you ere on in your Admin area?

    I may have just hidden something as opposed to deleting. I should have gone to bed, but instead,I looked at my page and saw that I uploaded the same picture twice. I clicked on the photo hoping to delete it or hide it and a dialog appeared confirming this. I confirmed far to quickly and rather than hide/delete the one photo it hid everything. I have tried installing other themes. I have removed WP altogether (from bluehost) and reinstalled (so now the site is generic again) but when I am in my dashboard my buttons still do not have icons etc. I’m guessing it is a simple fix but I cannot find it. does that help?

    There is no option to hide all icons & images in WordPress. Are you sure you didn’t just disable something in your web browser?

    I had just started investigating this when you posted (thank you). Still not sure what i did but it is fore sure related to firefox on my laptop. Thanks for your help…any chance you are familiar with what I undid in Firefox…? =)
