I'm using WPAlchemy for a custom meta box that lets you upload media. however the "Add Media" button is taking me to the "add media files to your computer..." as a new page (as if it were just a regular link) instead of opening as a pop-up on the same page. I tested my media upload button in a regular post situation and it popped up.

  • Okay, I solved it (again, cause this happened before but I forgot the solution!).... This was for a custom post type and I hadn't added a support that involved uploading something. So, I added "thumbnail" to the list of supports... 'supports' => array('title','author','thumbnail') for my custom post and that did the trick! It's a weird little glitch. I hope to never make this mistake again! Sep 7, 2012 at 5:56

  • Thanks! I've been posting mostly on stack overflow and that's where I have a "better reputation" I think I'll post all my wordpress questions here exclusively. Did you have this problem too? Sep 7, 2012 at 17:34

  • @Stratboy Sweet! If your using Wordpress I highly recommend Advanced Custom fields. I've been using it for a while now and love it! Jun 28, 2017 at 22:49
