  3. Hi:

    I just started having trouble with the gallery widget, too. I had it in my sidebar on Went to add new photos to it, but the choose image button did not work. I removed the widget, then tried to reconfigure it, but the button still does not work.

    This is a new problem, everything was fine this AM. Please advise.

  4. PS I have since removed the widget until this is resolved.

  5. Just noticed today that it will not allow me to edit my pics in the widget gallery. Bummer ... I need to update it. :(

  6. Sorry to hear others are having this problem. Hopefully, we can get this resolved soon with a little help from WordPress Happiness Engineers....

  7. Hello Denacooking,

    I just tried the Gallery Widget using the latest version of the Mozilla Firefox browser on Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS, and the Choose Image Button is not working for me either; and so I will add the Modlook Tag to this Topic so that someone who works for WordPress can hopefully help.

  8. Thanks John.

    And for the record, I am using Google Chrome.

  9. @Denacooking

    Thank you for mentioning that you are using Google Chrome so that they will know that it is not working in either of those internet browsers, and you are welcome Denacooking. ;)

    Good luck,
    -John Jr

  11. It appears to be working now! I just added the widget to my sidebar again and was able to edit it. I hope others have similar luck.

    Thank you WordPress gods!

    Thank you Denacooking for the update, the Choose Image Button on the Gallery Widget is working for me now as well, I guess they quietly fixed it for you without telling us ;) ; I would like to say thank you to whoever fixed it. :)

    -John Jr

    Nevermind, I found it, I wish that they had a better way of making these types of announcements (maybe a blog/et cetera that we can subscribe to for email alerts/Reader alerts/et cetera). :D

    Here is the link for anyone interested:

    Thank you Timethief. :)

    -John Jr

  17. You're welcome.

  18. Fixed here as well. Thanks for updating!

  19. Thank you Timethief. Most appreciated.

    When will there be an official announcement about the upcoming changes and how do we get on a list to learn about them as soon as possible?

  20. @Denacooking

    Surprisingly WordPress made a post about the Visual Editor and the Media Library updates on their official News blog/website (I recommend following/subscribing to News ( and maybe The Daily Post (


    Has the font and font size changed in the Visual Editor for any of you?

    Because when using the Hemingway Rewritten theme in the Visual Editor the font size possibly seems to be even smaller now than when I mentioned this in my possible bug report recently (

    But maybe I am imaging things. :D

    -John Jr

  21. Hi. Thanks. I actually do follow those blogs already by somehow I missed the announcement.

    I am glad for all the updates! Most appreciated.

  22. @Denacooking

    Good, and you are welcome Denacooking. :)
