Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » Unable to upload media in Fullscreen mode

  • Resolved Siobhan


    Hi there,

    Have installed RC2. In fullscreen (distraction free writing) mode the media upload button isn’t working. This is both in HTML and Visual versions. I click the button and nothing happens. There is no problem with the help popup window – and no problem inserting images when not in fullscreen mode.

    Have tried this out on local install and on shared hosting.

    Bug? Or just me being dumb?

    It’s working fine for me, What browser & operating system are you using? Have you tried another browser at all?

    Also, What about plugins?

    Tried on two computers – PC with Windows 7, laptop with windows Vista Business.

    Tried Chrome, Firefox, IE8

    No plugins installed.

    Also works for me, Windows 7, IE9 and FF5, Atahaulpa theme. Maybe a theme thing?

    Have you tried the default theme?

    The upload/insert button in DFW is very simple, all it does is jQuery('#add_image').click();, i.e. clicks the “normal” Add Image button that’s above the “normal” editor.

    If one is working the other should work too (unless there’s a plugin that modifies the normal Add Image button and changes/removes the HTML id).

    I just managed to confirm this issue on a fresh multisite subdirectory install.

    This is what I did:
    1) Installed fresh WP, all defaults, no plugins.
    2) Tested the upload in DFW mode – it worked as it should.
    3) Activated network.
    4) Created a post and switched to DFW mode.
    5) “Insert/Edit image” button stopped responding.

    Tested in FF5, IE8, Opera 11.5 and Chrome 12.

    Thanks for responding guys.
    I’ve set up a fresh install on my server.

    The image upload is working fine on single site but not on MS with a subdirectory install. The help button still works.

    I have no plugins installed. I have tried both Twenty Ten and Twenty Eleven themes.

    Alright, I think the issue here is that in multisite, you need to turn on the various media buttons in Network > Settings.

    So the bug would be that we have to check the network setting before showing the image button.

    Yes, this is probably right, as when I switched to Network I had no #add_image link. Switching back to single mode brought it back:

    Alternatively, you could trigger the click event on #add_media, as I had that one by default.

    Closing this thread as it has been confirmed that the issue was network activation, not dfw.
