Can't insert picture in post with 2.5 (87 posts)

    I have been trying to insert an uploaded picture into a post since I (locally) installed 2.5 RC1. (Now upgraded to 2.5)
    I have no problems uploading my pictures, but then it seems to go wrong.
    I hit the add Media -> add a picture-button, then I choose the 'Media library' where I choose the picture I want.
    Title, caption and description are already entered, I chose to have no link, choose the alignment and size I want, hit 'insert to post', and then the middle of the 'greybox' turns white, and nothing else happen. When I close the graybox, by hitting on 'x', (which is the only thing I can do), nothing has changed to my post...

    Maybe (as a non-english-speaking user) there is something I misunderstood, but when that's so, it should be made a little bit easier.

    Presently I can upload pictures fine with IE7 but not with Firefox. I did an upload with IE7 and it shows up under "Gallery". The same thing is happening to me here when I try to insert the box just blanks and nothing happens.

    I am having the same issue. I can add my already existing gallery images just fine, but if I try to upload an image, the little box on the screen just freezes. Nothing ever uploads.

    I am using Firefox on a *nix box. Are there any fixes? Is it a Firefox issue?

    When I try to upload an image using the Add Media: Add Image button, The dialog shows up just fine and I can browse for images under the Choose File tab.
    Clicking the Upload button results in he image being listed underneath but without an image showing. Clicking on the "Show" link beside it also does nothing.
    Going through the "Gallery" and "Media Library" has the same result with no images showing but their titles visibleand the "Show" link not doing anything.

    What is this dialog supposed to look like and behave?

    I think this issue is getting confused, the original poster and I could upload fine, but when trying to insert a thumbnail or otherwise into the story the window simply blanks.

    No fix is known for that so far as I know.

    I had this problem too! Then I cleared my browser cache, deactivated all my plugins, and re-installed the upgrade.

    After that I was able to insert the html code into the post box.

    (Note: the code shows up, and the image appears correctly when you publish the post, but I could not view the image in the editor, only on the actual page after publishing.)

    Hope this helps somewhat...
    And especially hope that there's a real/better fix soon...

    Browser cache isn't working for me, I wish I had kept a backup of my DB prior to the upgrade as I would very much like to revert back to 2.3.3 for the time being.

    @Kristanlh and canadianpj: thank you for adding something to the discussion I hoped to start.
    I will try to re-install, like kristanlh suggested, but I wonder if this will solve the problem: it already existed when I installed RC1, and it still is there after having installed the definitive 2.5, so I already de-activated my plugins, en re-installed.
    But I didn't clear my browser cache.
    And I didn't try another browser, but I could try, since I have my local install on a Windows machine (for some reason, WordPress locally installed on my Linux-pc is very, very slow, but that's another problem...)

    I'm wondering if this problem could be linked to an install on a Windows-configuration instead of a linux-server? I still have to test all my plugins, and when they do work, I think I'm going to install 2.5 on the 'real' server where my site is on, hoping that I don't have this problem there.

    @ kristanpj: After (only) clearing my browsercache my problem was solved.

    I did a re-clear and it works now, weird that it did not the first time so my only remaining problem is I cannot upload with Firefox, only IE.

    Same :-( It worked, re-cleared, did not work and still will not no matter how many times I clear it heh. Hoping for 2.5.1 soon and I'm sure there hard at work on fixes.

    In my situation, it uploads ( can see the images through ftp) but nothing in the image gallery and it stops with crunching......however I can HAND code the image into my post using the URL..so that is a work around for now. However, I agree...this is pretty unnerving when you have an active blog.

    Yeah... this is happening to me too. Sometimes when I click insert image all I get is a blank box. It works most of the time, though... but really annoying when it doesn't work.

    Doesn't work for me either. I just get the blank page after hitting the "insert into post" button. I've taken to copying the URL and then pasting it in manually.

    I get an error message when the image uploads but the image does appear in my media library but I have no button to insert the picture into my post or page.

    Very frustrating.

    I've got this issue too. Anybody have any ideas?

    I click on add image, upload, it shows me the title of the picture and a show link (which does nothing).

    Going to gallery does nothing either.

    hi, just adding my twocents. Installed a new WordPress Blog 2.5 in a subdir of my Server (Apache). When I try to upload an image and click "insert into post", the popup goes blank. I can only click on x to close the window. The image gets uploaded, I can see it in the gallery next time I click "add an image", but when I try to include it into the post, it goes blank.
    Oddly, if I clear the link URL field, it works.
    Tried it on:
    FF (Windows, also with deactivated cache)
    Safari (Windows and Mac)
    IE 6 (gives a lot of other errors)
    IE 7
    so it does not seem to be a browser-specific error...
    p.s. and yes, I deactivated all my plugins...

    Hi gang,

    It's a "permissions" thing. Here's what I did.

    1) First try -- couldn't upload photos because the directory on the server wasn't writable by the server (actually, wasn't even there). WP told me that, so I went and added "write" permissions to the /content/uploads folder. If you haven't already done so, make sure you create that folder first, WP doesn't do that automatically for ya.

    2) Second try -- symptoms just like what y'all are describing. I could upload fine, but when I inserted the picture in the post I got a blank screen, all I could do was close it, and the picture didn't show up.

    3) Solution -- I added "read" permissions (in addition to the "write" permission I'd done in the last step) to the /content/uploads folder. 'Turns out that the server needs to read stuff from there in order to complete it's job. Made sense, once I'd gotten it going.

    Works a treat now.

    My upload folders are already set to read-write, and I get the blank-sceen issue. It's interesting to note that I can't reproduce it, but a client of mine seems to get it consistently, leading me to think its some sort of client-side issue.

    My upload folder also has these permissions 755, but I still get the white window in the middle of the screen that doesn't do anything. No picture files are added. Is there another solution or workaround someone has figured yet?

    I tried adding the pictures manually, but I can't get the thumbnails to show.

    me too, permissions are set to 775 and http user is member of group, so has all rights on the folder.
    And it works fine when I include the picture with the link url field cleared. Can anybody reproduce this?

    NEW SOLUTION: Make sure your WordPress tab is the ONLY tab open at the time.

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/166082?replies=8#post-734561

    Works for me! Hopefully someone will find a better solution (i.e., one that lets us upload images while other tabs are open).

    Hi, I have the same problem, BUT only when I'm not the admin; so it is not a folder permissions.
    Any Idea?

    Ditto Egodoy

    I can not "Insert into Post" unless I am logged in as the original Admin. I don't think the upload permissions has anything to do with this problem.

    If am I logged in as a user (even a user that has admin permissions) I get a blank box when I press "Insert into Post". This is the error that Firebug throws:

    uncaught exception:
    Permission denied to get property Window.send_to_editor
    tb_show("", "http://example.com/wp-admin/media-upload.php?post_id=22&type=image&TB_iframe=true&height=...", false)thickbox.js (line 230)
    tb_init()thickbox.js (line 26)
    e(Object target=a.thickbox type=click)jquery.js (line 11)
    e()

    Hope this can get fixed soon.
    Rasa

    EDIT: If I change a user to an "Editor" permission, "Insert into Post" works. It's some conflict with users that are admins but not the default admin.
