How do I disable the new uploader? It just smashed the options of my theme (5 posts)

    I am using the Chocolate Theme from themseforest.net - and with the new uploader introduced in 3.5, it just smashed the media options for my theme. No longer can I create the galleries, sliders and other smart photo options I purchased the theme to be able to do.

    So is there any way to scrap the uploader and media handling introduced with 3.5 and use the ones from the previous version?
    And if not, can I downgrade as easily as I upgraded (click in the menu of my wordpress installation).

  2. That's a theme problem with a paid/premium theme; you should ask the theme developer for help with it. These forums for for help with WordPress core and free themes hosted by WordPress.

    You can try and downgrade, but the database version was changed upon upgrade and it's not recommended. You will need to do a manual downgrade.

    The problems could be as simple as javascript conflicts; try Firebug with Firefox, or use the developer tools in Chrome or Safari or IE to see what's loading on your site and any errors.

    Wondering the same, it's not 100% great yet and has a lot of issues on my end with controlling what my clients do.

    By the amount of problems I'm reading about, I think the best choice for a lot of us would be to do the downgrade.

    The WordPress support team seem to be doing their best to help, but are obviously overwhelmed.

  5. @ThatsMyCoffe: if you're not using the same theme, start your own post.

    FYI, these are not core WP issues but theme/plugin issues. 3.5 was in beta for 3 months; this was plenty of time for theme/plugin authors to get ready.
