Support » Fixing WordPress » Plupload stopped working in plugin between 4.8.4 and 4.9.1

  • This plugin stopped work right after we upgraded to 4.9.1 from 4.8.4. I reverted and it started working again.

    We use plupload for the plugin to handle the upload process. When we upgraded core, the upload button just stopped doing anything. No errors.

    I am trying to figure out what happened to plupload?

    If you use a commercial plugin and need support, please go to their official support channel.

    http://www.plupload.com/

    Forum volunteers are also not given access to commercial products, so they would not know why your commercial theme or plugin is not working properly. This is one other reason why volunteers forward you to the commercial product’s vendors. The vendors are responsible for supporting their commercial product.

    It is a pretty simple question that is plugin independent. I am sorry that wasn’t clear. I just added the link to the plugin to show the code. Of course the plugin also isn’t a commercial product. I am not sure what would lead to that conclusion.

    I am just trying to figure out why plupload (part of core) stopped working for me. I am wondering if anyone has any insight as to what changed in plupload between 4.8.4 and 4.9.1. It appears that support for flash and silverlight was removed. But we weren’t relying on that anyhow.

    What is the Full name of the plugin?

    Where did you download it from?

    I am really sorry that the plugin has become a distraction. There IS A LINK to the plugin in my original post… I don’t understand why…

    It was just to give… an example. Anyhow it is my plugin, my code. I am just trying to gain insight into why an implementation of plupload worked in WordPress 3.5 – 4.8.4, but it doesn’t work in 4.9.

    Just trying to figure out what changed? I am still digging on this. I will report back if I figure it out.

    WordPress upgraded plupload from 1.3.4 to 2.1.9. A significant jump. Important as it was a security release. Another major update was to pull support in plupload for flash and silverlight, though that wasn’t important to us.

    The issue for me was that I used this tutorial to set it up way back:

    I had included a “drop_element” id in the plupload definition, but the drop element got removed from the HTML. This wasn’t a problem in 1.3.4, but it completely broke 2.1.9.
