Support » Fixing WordPress » Images in media folder do not appear

  • Resolved Huni Sen Atum-RE



    NONE of the images in my media folder appear on my site or on the back end of the WordPress dashboard. I have heard this may be a problem with the new 4.5 update. Please help me with this matter. I have check my cpanel to see if the images were in the folders and they were. There is some disconnect between my wordpress site and my database.

    Thank you

    try updating to 4.5.1

    Actually, I did and I’m still having the same problem.

    Have you tried:
    – deactivating ALL (yes all) plugins temporarily to see if this resolves the problem (plugin functions can interfere). If this works, re-activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the problematic plugin(s).
    resetting the plugins folder by FTP. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
    – switching to the unedited default Theme (Twenty Sixteen, etc.) for a moment using the WP dashboard to rule out any theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).



    I would check with your theme developer since the theme seems to be attempting to pull the images from a folder within your theme. Example:

    Theme dev:

    Ok, I have deactivated and disabled my plugins. I went to my themes page and even the images for the themes are missing. Somewhere along the way, some wordpress basic file is missing I believe. Any ideas?

    I have checked the images in my folders and they are there.

    I have tried using different themes and the problem still exists.

    Problem solve. There was an issue with my permissions that caused the whole mix up. Thanks for everyone’s input.
