Support » Plugin: Media Credit » Media Credit does not function in WP3.5

  • Resolved Barry


    Plugin will not allow a picture to be placed in a post with the newest version of WordPress 3.5. Will there be an update to work with WP3.5?

    After disabling it, things works ok when adding new media to a post. But then it leaves the visible code on the post because of this.

    You can remove that but placing a code in your themes fuction.php file located at


    // Start Remove Media Credit
    function ignore_media_credit_shortcode( $atts, $content = null ) {
        return $content;
    global $shortcode_tags;
    if ( !array_key_exists( 'media-credit', $shortcode_tags ) )
        add_shortcode('media-credit', 'ignore_media_credit_shortcode' );
    // End Remove Media Credit

  • Thanks for the tip on removing the code.
    Wish they would update this plugin. Have over 2000 posts with the media credit code in it.



    I have over 10,000! The fix solves the issue but also leaves the post a little skewed due to it losing the coding…….such as alignment. Probably the best solution I see is just to place the photo credit in the caption area and display it that way.

    The author says, “I’ll try to update it but I have no timeline.”

    Ah, that does not sound promising.

    Maybe someone else would look into tinkering with it to get it to work.

    Also, where exactly did you say to place that code? In the themes functions.php?

    I’m sorry I haven’t been able to update the plugin for quite a while.

    The code that Barry copied is from the FAQ page for Media Credit, which indeed mentions putting it in your functions.php file:

    I think the problem lies with the JS code inserted in send_media_credit_to_editor_by_shortcode. When I disable the following lines, the shortcode is inserted correctly in the plain text view (without TinyMCE). The visual editor is broken of course.

    echo "
    <script type='text/javascript'>
    window.parent.\$[" . $post->post_author . "] = '" . get_the_author_meta( 'display_name', $post->post_author ) . "';

    Fixed with 2.0.
