    Hi guys,

    I had much trouble after updating to 3.5, and I tried everything to get the media library and admin icons to work, and was in the middle of writing a help post to this forum, but then had a 'lightbulb' moment.

    It cured my particular problem so I thought I would post here in case it helps anyone else.

    Cutting a long story short here...

    cPanel Hotlink protection if you have it enabled DISABLE it and everything in you Wp install will then work.
    (The hotfix function puts code in your site's htaccess file)

    Took me 36 hours to figure that!
    Hope it helps someone :-)

    Just curious, exactly what was your media library issue?

    I didn't expect a reply to this thread but anyway :-)

    The media library just would not function properly, I could upload them but they would not show either in the library or as thumbs on the file list page. Nor would they show if I tried to embed an image on a page.

    I'm not a techy but my verdict is there are no problem with this update per se at least not on the WP end most probs are likely themes or external files.

    Hope yours is okay :-)
