Wordpress : Unable to add image from Media Manager

Posted on 2009-05-05
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I've installed Wordpress and everything works great. Except, when trying to add an image in the Admin section for any post or page. In the Media Manager, the 'show' link does not work. When I click the 'show' link, nothing happens.

I've been to the Wordpress forums with no response. It seems such a simple issue. If the link worked the rest of image options would show and therefore I could add an image.

Do you have any solutions or options?

any chance you have js disabled through noscript or some other setting?

I've tried this on 3 computers (XP and Vista) and have checked to make sure my JS is not disabled or have any specific exceptions.

Just another note, I am able to upload a photo and insert the photo from the initial upload. But from the Media Library, I cannot.

are you using IE? WP 2.7?  IE had problems with this in WP2.7, but the issue was fixed in WP2.71

HI Jester,
I am using FF 3.0.10. Tried it in IE8 just now too. Using WP 2.7.
I took the time and reinstalled the files too.

I a noticing an error when I use IE (clicking on the Error on Page on status bar).

It was a plugin... Events Manager. I was able to view the specific error and noticed references to it in the error.

Sigh!! I figured it out (after weeks on this!). Hallelujahs!

But, thanks for your help. Your questions got me thinking again in a different direction.
