New Media Insert NOT WORKING

  1. I just logged in to finish editing a post and see that the menu on the editing screen is different and that all the media is now in one feature. Where there was space for picture/video/etc now it's only one.... and it's not loading.

    Even if I manually add HTML and then go to try to edit the picture, nothing loads and it doesn't work.

    What is going on?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. We cannot even begin to help until you post an active link to the blog in question starting with http:// Will you please do that now?

  3. Is this your blog? If so then please link it to your username. It’s very easy to do. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ select the URL for your primary blog and then save changes.

    Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

    I'm wondering if Staff aren't making changes in the background that is causing this so I'm flagging this thread for Staff attention to see if that's the case or not.

  5. It would appear that the new "add media" option does not allow video to be embedded in a blog post, please clarify on this point. Thank you

  6. Yeah, please do!

  7. I would love to get an explanation too, Im getting irritated when I was trying to post a video from youtube but its not working!

  8. This is all fixed up now, sorry for the trouble!

  9. but the update function STILL doesn't work for me. Click 'update' once and the post changes font; click it again and the screen goes blank and nothing changes. Been happening all afternoon and my current post needs a change.

  10. I'm unable to even upload a picture onto my blog, the icon for "add media" is not working. I've tried logging out and logging back in, in addition to clearing my browsers history. When I click the new icon my window turns grey (but I can still see my post) and nothing happens, no new window, no other options. Is this an error on your part or mine?

  11. I actually discovered that if I open the "add media" file in a new window or tab I am able to access the the drag and drop window. I use Google chrome as my internet browser, perhaps the new design isn't compatible?

    I too am having the same problem as yanevah, I can not add media to any post. I think that there is a problem with it on Google Chrome because I went on Safari and it worked there. But I would like for it to work on Google Chrome as I use that as my main browser.

  13. i am having the same issue as eosresurfaces; have been since around 7:30pm EDT.

  14. i confirmed what awesomebarnhart mentioned: unable to post from Google Chrome in Windows 7, but IE9 on same computer worked.

  15. I am able to load pictures and my information on my blog but I can't post, it just sits there but nothing, it's still sitting in my drafts. Is the site not working?

    I am using internet explorer

  16. I tried to upload a picture to my blog & it didn't work. I'm using a MacBook with Firefox 9.0 on a Bluehost site with a simple WordPress template. This should be cake. I'm going to sleep now. 10:54pm EST 11-16-2011

    I am having the same issues when trying to upload pictures for my blog post? Any help is appreciated. I cleared the cache and cookies as suggested but does not seem to make a difference.

    I can download a picture from the new media tab but have no control as to where text appears. cursor reverts to lower left corner of picture. started working on Internet Explorer and changed to Google Chrome, neither works. and yes, I cleared the cookies. this is a wordpress problem, when will it be fixed??

  19. I join the "it doesn't work" club.
    It wants to run silverlight if I try to install media. That hangs my system. Don't want to use silverlight. It won't work for me.
    I'm effectively shut down right now because of this.

  20. Was there any advance notification of this change?
    I just discovered it in the middle of drafting a new post which was saved as draft from yesterday. I managed to work my way through it for static photos.
    Haven't tried embedding video yet.
    Why do the folks at WP do this?
    Whatever happened to: If it ain't broke - don't fix it!

  21. @eosresurfaces: Please refer to your own topic. Thanks.

  22. It won't work for me on this computer either. It says that my old version of Silverlight needs to be updated. When I try to update Silverlight, it says it cannot be verified. I have Internet Explorer 8. The new media does work on my laptop computer--tentatively--but all the photos are here on this computer. Thanks for any help.

    having the same issues



  24. We at Filmophilia are also in the same boat. Every contributor, every type of browser, adding photos is not working. Video insertion is temperamental at best.

  25. To correct: It inserts the picture, but we can't edit it as clicking "add media" or "edit picture" only shows a grey blanket over the post.

  26. enterprisecorruption

    at least we're not alone i guess;-)


  27. I'm having the same problems too. I finally got an image uploaded into my draft post but before it was telling me I need to upgrade some Silverlight thingamajig. Still having issues though.

  28. I have the same problem as yanevah and am getting really frustrated with this. I only get a grey blanket over the signs of the picture I want to insert. It's been this way since I tried to upload the picture for the first time about 18 hours ago. I hope a fix is coming soon.
