When I click the button "Add Media" to start a new Post, it does not respond

  1. WordPress Admin,


    I have got a Medical website in Urdu Language.

    I have got a very strange problem, which I did not have in the past and has only come into being in the last 7 days.

    When I want to make a new "POST" (Not Page), the button on top left, "Add Media" does not respond. Normally it responds immediately & a Window (Insert Media) opens up, through which, I can download the pictures & Urdu Articles, very easily.

    Furthermore, if I want to add a New Category to the post, it also does not respond. Same is the case with Tags. They also dont respond, which prevents me from attaching categories & tags to the new posts.

    But amazingly, if I want to start a new "PAGE", then there is absolutely no problem. Each time I click the top left button, "Add Media", it promptly opens up the Window, "Insert Media", through which I can easily download the pictures on the new page.

    So, the problem lies only with the new "POSTS" and not with the new "PAGES", which is very strange.

    Please let me know what to do.

  3. Timethief,

    Thanks for your answer. I will go through all your above points & suggestions one by one, in order to determine the exact position of the problem and would report back to you within a few days.

    Just one point.

    When I use a computer in my friend's house, I DO NOT encounter any of the problems, which I described in my above post, which indicates to me very clearly that my problem is tied and interbraided solitarily with my own browser & computer & not with any other computer.

    Thanks for your help & I will communicate with you again in the next few days.
