When I try to search for images in the Wordpress backend 'media' library, the search does not work. I know this is a core WP function but it seems like something is rendering this function broken.
- deactivating all plugins & switching themes
- Checked the permissions for /uploads folder (set to 755 recursively).
- Wordpress is up to date (4.8.3)
- Checked PHP version (5.3.3)
no media found.
The current setup is running a multisite. I've combed through the code but don't see anything out of line. The inspector console doesn't show any error messages.
I also checked the server log and it display
Unknown column wp_postmeta.meta.key. This is the closest error I could find. The image grid displays all the photos fine and the img url links seem to be fine. Any suggestions for next steps?
