Where did the "Add Media" button go in the new editing interface?

    Hi. I logged in today to write a post and find a brand new editing interface… but I can’t figure out how to add an image. What happened to the “Add Media” button? How are we supposed to add images from our Media Library?

    The blog I need help with is danyork.wordpress.com.



    Hi there,

    Our team is working on some updates and changes to the new post page here: https://wordpress.com/post/

    Currently, you can add images to your posts by dragging & dropping them in the space below the post editor to create a gallery. Our team is also working on updates to that feature to add more options for adding and managing media in new posts.

    If you prefer to use the “Add Media” button to add images from your media library, you can still do that using the post editor under Posts > Add New in your blog’s dashboard. (You can get to that dashboard with the “Dashboard” link on your My Blogs page.)

    Please let me know if you have any questions about that. :)



    I have good news, the ‘add media’ button has returned:


    Please take a look and let me know if you have any trouble.
