Support » Fixing WordPress » Media Library not displaying media

  • Resolved Nikki


    I upgraded to 3.1.3 today and although my Media Library says I have 2021 images, it shows absolutely nothing in the list – looking as though the library is empty. There are no problems with the existing images in posts displaying on my site, so it seems to be an internal disconnect.

    Any idea on what could be causing that or a setting I need to alter?

    Much thanks.

    I checked (it was) and tried altering that but it has no affect on what the media library displays. The library still shows as empty. I’m still able to correctly upload files, however, which is strange.

    I have this problem too… what HAPPENED????

    It just says “No Media Attachments Found” right after I upgraded to wordpress 3.1.3

    One of your plugins causing the problem. Just hang tight and help should be along shortly.

    [EDIT] In the meantime, it might be helpful if you could list what plugins you currently have active and any that are currently inactive.

    Thanks for a reply!!!!

    I haven’t added any plugins since the upgrade.. It’s only when I upgraded.

    Here is my list of active plugins.

    Add me to the list… working fine until 3.1.3 upgrade… 🙁

    I understand. Right now, I think it’s one of your existing (pre-upgrade) plugins that is causing the problem. To put it simply, it isn’t coded to WordPress standards and, as a result, it’s breaking your Media Library.

    I’m sorry for the delay in providing a definitive solution but one of the WP senior developers would like to have a look at this issue first. The plugin list you have provided could prove very helpful.

    Thank you.

    @function_im_awesome & Nikki: Could you also drop a list of your active & inactive plugins into the WordPress pastebin and post the pastebin url here? The more information, we can gather the better.

    Well could you get the attention of a WP senior? Because I know that my chances are really low of getting support of a “WP Senior” with this simple topic.

    Already sent a message. This is an issue what we were asked to look out for, so someone should be along shortly. Just try to be patient – even senior devs have to eat & sleep sometimes 😉

    Yes, I understand.

    I hope it’s not NextGen Gallery, as I really need that plugin :s

    Why do I always forget to try deactivating my plugins?!

    I went through all of my plugins and when I deactivated Custom Query String Reloaded by (, the library magically reappeared.


    Solved it… deactivated the “cbnet Different Posts Per Page” plugin.


    Hi all —

    Sorry about this one. A very unusual bug was triggered by a few plugins (about five total of the tens of thousands out there).

    We don’t need to know which plugin it is. Simply install the Hotfix plugin ( and things will work again.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
