Editing Media Library

    Hi guys, what has happened in the updated version, I cannot edit my previous Media Libraries anymore? I wanted to add a picture to the library I have already published, but the only editing option is to delete pics, not add? Or am I missing something?

    The blog I need help with is paulapartanen.com.

    Hi,

    You should still be able to add new media to the media library at wp-admin dashboard → Media → Add New.

    Yes, I can add new media, but I can’t modify the existing pic mosaic. Earlier you could edit it by adding more pictures, now you can only delete pictures from your earlier selection or add extra pictures before or after the big pic mosaic.

    I see what you mean. I don’t find the “Add to gallery” option in the Edit Gallery page at the My Sites page editor. I wasn’t aware of the change because I always use the classic page editor, where this option is still present.

    Perhaps staff can explain the absence to you. You may add a “modlook” tag to the sidebar of this topic to call for staff attention.

    I could be wrong but I do think this may be tied into the new editor changes so I did tag the thread for Staff assistance.

    If you are indicating that you already sent in a support ticket to Staff then why are you posting here into paulapartanen1’s thread at all? Posting here is redundant if you have submitted a support ticket and doing both does not mean you will get help any more quickly. The opposite is the case.

    @paulapartanen1:

    Thanks for the feedback; we’ll take this into account in future updates. It isn’t possible to add more pictures to an existing mosaic at the moment, using the new editor. But you can do so by editing the post in the classic dashboard:

    http://paulapartanendotcom.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    @mickleblog:

    I recommend you try using the classic dashboard, as that may be what you’re familiar with. You can access it by placing ‘/wp-admin/’ at the end of your blog URL. For example, http://my_blog_address/wp-admin/

    In the future, please create a new thread for issues or questions that aren’t related to the original topic.

    As this thread has become a bit unwieldy, I’m closing it.
