Support » Fixing WordPress » No images displayed in Media Library under Set featured image

  • Resolved James Laws


    There are images displayed under the media tab but when I click to set a featured image and then choose Media Library, none of the images are there. The word images is bold and says there are (49) but they are not displayed in a table as would be expected.

    I have disabled all plugins and reinstalled WordPress but I can’t get these images to show. Any ideas?

  • This is happening to me to, on 3.1. It’s never done this before so it must be a bug in 3.1.

    I’ve tried Chrome and Safari with the same result.

    The files are visible in the regular media tab on the left, but not the pop-up window from within a post or page.

    I’ll leave this open for a little bit if my situation us far different different from yours.

    My issue was with post_formats and custom taxonomies for some odd reason. I had a taxonomy with slug “type” which is the slug for post_format. Once I changed mt taxonomy slug it all worked fine.

    It was strange that it caused the problem that it did but thats what it was.

    Ok, I ran some tests and in my case, it seems it was the theme that I had applied. I’ve contacted the creator of theme and hopefully he can fix it.

    I had the same issue as James. Changing the slug to something besides ‘type’ fixed the issue. I would let your developer know that this could be the issue. Would definitely help them get it updated quickly if your theme has a similar taxonomy setup.

    Thanks for the heads up James!

    You are very welcome. Glad that I was able to solve it for a few of us.

    Thanks for this. Couldn’t figure out the cause of the issue. Changing my taxonomy name from type did the trick.

    I still haven’t heard from the theme creator but could somebody point me to a resource that explains how/where to change the taxonomy name. I’m sure I will be able to do this and I’d like to give it a shot.

    Hi James,
    I am facing same problem, When i open “Set Featured Image” it does not shows the images even just show number of images in the media library like images(19).

    I dont know how to edit taxanomy Slug, hope it will resolve using your solution. Please Help me to know how to change Slug in taxanomy.
