Support » Fixing WordPress » Set featured image Just Stopped Working

  • Yesterday morning, I was able to set a featured image to my posts. Then all of a sudden last night when I went to create a post, I wasn’t able to. I click “Set featured image” pick my image, but for some reason it’s not saving.

    I didn’t make any changes to my site whatsoever aside from adding new posts. I tried deactivating all my plugins, but no luck.

    Has anybody else had this problem? I didn’t touch WordPress, but this annoying issue just popped up. I looked into the database, and it looks like new thumbnail entries aren’t showing up in the wp_postmeta table. I can create new posts, I just can’t add thumbnails to them.

    Can anybody please advise on what I can do to fix this!?!

    Have you tried:

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Yes, I’ve tried all of those things.
