Can someone please help me rectify a glitch in my Media Library that is effecting the Featured Image selection?
This has been going on a while and is theme independent.
When I click on Set Featured Image on my post page it opens my Media Library and I can "select" an image but then, when I click on the Set Featured Image below the selected image (over on the right side bar part of the media library) a duplicate of the image pops up over on the left in the media library. I go back to the post and the featured image does not show up. Setting the featured image did not take. The same thing keeps happening if I try to do it again. I can end up with what looks like multiple duplicates of the image in the media library.
However when I go to the dashboard and open the Media Library, the "images" that were created are actually blanks - no image - and attached to nothing.
In trying to figure out the problem I installed the Drag & Drop Featured Image (which is a nice plugin!). The plug in will work and put in a featured image if I drag and drop it from my computer but it too will not work if I select something from my Media Library. Note: the plugin works fine. The problem is with my Media Library.
