Support » Networking WordPress » Images not showing

  • For some reason my images stopped loading on my multisite install. The images are there, but there seems to be a disconnect between the url and the file location.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Morning Aunrea,

    Are your photos appearing as just grey files in your media library as well as not appearing on your site? It looks like their source isn’t correct, either an upload error or URL reference issue, like you said, but there are a few possible ways to fix it, we just need more info.

    Is everything updated?

    Also, were they working when you first got your site up? Plugin’s can interfere with your media links, you might want to check that out as well. Just deactivating them one at a time until your photos start working again, if that’s the issue, it would be easy to track down.

    Yes the images are showing as grey in the media area. I always keep my websites up to date.

    I have had this site for years and have not had this problem before. All of my networked sites have this issue except the main one. I will try deactivating plugins.

    I was able to get frontend images to show on all but one blog. I had to deactivate Contact Form 7, which as active on all but 2 blogs, including the main one. On the 2 blogs that didn’t have it active I tried deactivating plugins. On one I found that deactivating buddypress (it was only active on this one blog) fixed it. On the other I deactivate all plugins but could not get the images to load.

    On the backend I can’t get images to load on the media page (including newly uploaded images) except on the main website.

    Great!

    Glad to most of your sites are working again. There could be a permissions issue with your media library. I’ve been doing some checking, try to view your file permissions for the library, they should be set to 755. You should be able to navigate to your /wp-content/uploads folder (unless you’ve set up your own file system) and verify it there in your server that you use.

    If that doesn’t work, then try to force regenerate your thumbnails. There’s a plugin for this if you want called “Force Regenerate Thumbnails” https://wordpress.org/plugins/force-regenerate-thumbnails/. I’ve not used this plugin, so I don’t know if it will work with your multisite install or how long it might take. It does have good reviews though, and could get those thumbnails working again.

    Some extra resources that might help depending on what you have on your websites:

    Hope these get your problem 100% solved!
