    Had your plugin working great on castrotalent(dot)com a few weeks ago.
    Not sure what made the link disappear. There are no errors being thrown on the site and I don't have any new plugins or anything new installed other than updating WordPress to the latest version.

    Uninstalled and re-installed/activated the plugin. Still no link.
    I even tried it by itself on a testing site I have up which is running plain wordpress with nothing installed.
    Still have no link on the edit pages to crop thumbnails.

    Could be a server issue?
    Is this a problem for anyone else?

    this should be a javascript error. As far as i remember all "crop thumbnail" links are rendered via javascript. There 3 places where the link/button is rendered:
    * beside the "add media button" in the edit-view
    * in the "post thumbnail" box in the edit-view
    * in the listing of media files under "media"

    If it's not a javascript error (you may have a look on the development console of firefox or chrome) you may check if the thumbnail feature is available for your theme.

    So, did you got any javascript errors?

    The Javascript-Code for this is rendered in the "functions/editor.php" in function "cptAddLinksToAdmin", arround line 500.

    is there any way to get it into the "edit image" view too - we have a custom field setup that enables people to select images using ACF.

    The media section, featured images and add media buttons aren't used at all

    Hi zandercent,
    i recommend to add the links via javascript. The plugin itself do it the same way (you may have a look at "crop-thumbnails/functions/editor.php" starting from line 498).

    What you need:

    • a activated thickbox (you may need to enqueue thickbox on the edit-image-page)
    • the id of the image

    <a class="thickbox" href="[ADMIN-PATH]/admin-ajax.php?action=croppostthumb_ajax&image_id=[IMAGE-ID]&viewmode=single&TB_iframe=1&width=800&height=855" title="Crop Thumbnail">Crop Thumbnail</a>

    Add the link to any point of the page. Once you clicked the link, the image should be opened.
