my media library seems to have disappeared – when i go to upload images into the theme it only allows me to upload from url – do you know why this is pls
are you certain you’re running the latest WordPress version with the latest version of Flashlight?
I’m not sure about this but this might help.
If the above isn’t the case could you provide a link to your site or screenshots of the issue?
Thanks for your patience.
I think maybe the OP is referring to the fact that Flashlight requires it’s own uploader and doesn’t support the default WP media library. This seems like a real oversight as every other theme I’ve used from TF has supported it and it’s a standard feature of wordpress. Seems crazy to have a separate uploader when the built in one is standard.
I must admit I was rather surprised to see this having just purchased the theme to replace one on my existing site I was pretty disappointed to find that I’m going to lose all my previously uploaded galleries and will have to upload them again to use for slideshows etc.
That’s going to be very time consuming so now I’m wondering if I should maybe just ditch Flashlight and go back to my original theme.
I’m with Richard Olpir (see above) on this one. I have imported all my images from my existing website over to my Flashlight development site only to find that I can’t use them and I’m having to reupload every single one often to multiple areas (shop, portfolio items, background images etc, etc) As my website exists to display my paintings and to sell them, this seems like a huge flaw. If I had known this to be the case, I most certainly would NOT have bought the Flashlight theme. Mightily frustrated here!
