Support » Fixing WordPress » Uploaded images not showing in admin panel

  • Resolved jzgpe


    I’ve search the forums (and web) with no solution to this issue. The few suggested workarounds seemed to address slightly different problems and didn’t work in my case.

    I can upload image files just fine and have confirmed that thumbnails are being created correctly. However, the admin page for creating a new post (from which images were uploaded) does not show the image thumbnail or give the option of inserting the image into the post editor. All I see is a blank blue square with the image title. (screen capture) When I click on the blue square, I’m presented with the option of inserting the link into the editor. (screen capture). The page source shows (for the first image in this example):

    <div class='upload-file-data'>
            <input type='hidden' name='attachment-url-560' id='attachment-url-560' value='/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/012308_21291.jpg' />
            <input type='hidden' name='attachment-url-base-560' id='attachment-url-base-560' value='' />
            <input type='hidden' name='attachment-is-image-560' id='attachment-is-image-560' value='0' />
            <input type='hidden' name='attachment-page-url-560' id='attachment-page-url-560' value='' />
            <input type='hidden' name='attachment-title-560' id='attachment-title-560' value='Fire 4' />
            <input type='hidden' name='attachment-description-560' id='attachment-description-560' value='' />

    This issue appeared after two significant server events: 1) the blog site was moved to a different server with a different physical directory for the wordpress installation and 2) wordpress was upgraded to 2.3.0. Subsequent upgrade to 2.3.2 has not resolved the issue.

    If the issue was related to a different physical drive directory structure, I would expect old image links to thumbnails to fail, but uploaded image links to thumbnails for post server/wordpress upgrades to function properly.

    I’ve tried all I can think of to resolve this and would welcome any suggestions.

    Many thanks…

  • Wow! Did I get lucky! After posting this issue, I clicked on the “thumbnail” tag I created for the post which listed this issue as # five in the list: PodPress disables image posting. I happen to have PodPress installed and once it was deactivated, the thumbnails appeared in the admin screen. I would have never guessed a conflict caused by a plugin.
