[resolved] [Theme: SimpleCorp] Add Media button not working (3 posts)

    Hi all, I have noticed since updating to wp3.5 that I am no longer able to add media to the slides.

    It also won't allow me to update the images that are there. If I click update on the slide, it removes the image and I can not add any other images. When I try, it just stays blank.

    I go to my slide page, click on add new slide, and then select the image. This attempts to add it to the slide, but nothing is there

    Here is a screenshot of what happens: Issue With Slider

    Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.


    EDIT: I have put WP3.4 on and the issue isn't there. It seems to be 3.5 that has broken it

    Going to close it since I resolved it myself. No thanks to WP for issuing a buggy system.

    For those that are interested, this is how I did it.

    Make sure you back up your site and database.

    I did a fresh install of wordpress, I then deleted everything but usermeta and users table from the data base and imported backed up database minus the usermeta and users table.

    I then just uploaded the backed up wordpress site minus the wp-config.php file and it now works

    Wow, I understand, but this is scary stuff on a live commercial site. WordPress took a credibility hit on this update.

    The upgrade is more trouble than it is worth; has cost, probably millions of dollars in time, for all those who were very devoted - until now.

    WordPress has 57% of the current CMS market, growing exponentially. We would love to see that direction continue, but they are wasting some valuable capital with 3.5.
