  1. I click the set featured button
  2. try to add image in set featured option
  3. when I click set featured image button the image doesn't upload

I have already updated my theme and wordpress theme after this issue. Tested on different web browsers but issue is not getting resolved. What should I do?

  • Did you check the console? Are there any errors? When you open network tab, when you upload a button does it make new request? You also should check server error logs. How big is the file? Disk is not full? Nov 20, 2019 at 10:59

  1. Switching to the unedited default Theme (Twenty Sixteen, etc.) for a moment using the WP dashboard to rule out any theme-specific issue.

  2. Maybe a third party plugin causes a js conflict/error on the admin screen. Please try to deactivate all plugins and check if this solves the issue. If yes activate them one by one again to find the incompatible plugin.


Same issue happened with me when i was using below code in my js file in my plugin . This might help authors.

// Enable Media Upload 

if(function_exists( 'wp_enqueue_media' )){
