    Hello,

    There is a strange bug in the wordpress mu that i installed: We can't put photos in posts. We can uploaded them into the media library but after the upload has done, the button: "insert into post" doesn't put the pic in the post. it returns to the last window that shows all the pictures gallery.

    Any solution?

    thanks,

    Yuval

    When you upload, are you doing it within the Write Post area, while you are writing a post?

    The only active plugin is:
    Google Analytics for WordPress

    Make sure the PHP GD library is installed on your server or WordPress won't be able to create thumbnails and things that it needs to. I had this issue and it doesn't tell you if you don't have the GD library...it just acts funny.

    Well have you checked if you've got GD installed? Are there any errors in any error logs?

    Try this:

    On the "Add an Image" screen you should erase all text from the Caption box, and, if that doesn't work, try to make sure the Title box only contains letters, numbers, and underscores but no special characters like apostrophes ('), quotes ("), and so on.

    Use the Insert into Post button.

    Next, if the image shows up, Click on the image. There should be two buttons that appear over the image. Then, click on the left, picture of a mountain, button.

    Finally, retype your Image Title and Image Caption in the boxes, then click the Update button.

    I get the same problem - but only in Internet Explorer - Firefox shows the images, but Internet Explorer shows the red X. And only on certain photos!

    I cant put photos in a post, actually cant add media (the media is uploaded to the server but never shows in the add image box) when I'm in a post page. When I use quick press the image will upload fine and can be added to the post.

    Weird and frustrating.

    kindly anyone give the help.
    I struck with my 2 MU sites with huge userbase.

    Everything was fine upto 26/Feb/2010.

    Media uploader is fine in Quick Press, but it's not working in normal Add New Post. If I select the files, the all files are uploaded in the correct folder, but not showing in media library and not showing after upload completed, just empty..

    It seems, the problem in inserting the file names to the database after the upload completed or the process aborted before the database entry.

    I check the browser log, it show the following error:
    'J.parentNode' is null or not an object.

    Both MU sites have the same problem. I did nothing and nothing is changed.

    I tried by replacing the .htaccess with new one and removing plugins (even all plugins). but nothing helped....

    It's weird....

    found the exact issue...

    check out the media upload url, see the post_id, it's in negative number. just remove the (-)minus sign from the URL, the uploader will work fine.

    http://bfora.com/wp-admin/media-upload.php?post_id=-1267267281&type=image&TB_iframe=true

    but I have to check the php files, to know where the URL is generated to fix the issue. If anyone found place, let us know.

    here is my quick fix by modifying the REQUEST variable in media_upload.php.

    place the following line:
    $_REQUEST['post_id'] = str_replace($_REQUEST['post_id'],'-','');

    under the following line in media_upload.php,
    $post_id = isset($post_id)? (int) $post_id : 0;

    also, I always wonder that such issues never fixed or even replies by fellow programmers in this forum. This issue is notified by few users 2 or 3 weeks before, but no answers.

    I always found the fixed for my issues.
    Anyway I am happy to fix the issue and help others.

    This is the quick fix, even I don't know why the post_id generated with negative value. If anybody found the reason let me know, so I can help/support this community further.
