I’m setting up site using brightbox theme. I’ve noticed something strange with the “Add Featured Media” option under the portfolio items.
Most of the portfolio images we have already in our media library. If you hit Upload under Add Featured Media, then go to Media Library and search for the image you want, once located it gives option “Insert into Post”. If you click this, the image appears ok. But when you save the image is lost and the preview of the image just shows a film roll and on the front end of the site theres no image.
If you upload a new image, or don’t use the search function in the Media library and just browse to it, the button option is different and displays “Use image as featured image”. This seems to work fine.
It’s only when we see “Insert into Post” instead of “Use image as featured image” where the problem occurs, this seems to happen each time the media library search or filter is used or if you try using the “From URL” option to link the image.
Is there a possible fix to this? At the moment we either need to upload the image again, or manually browse through to media library in order to get it to work.August 8, 2011 at 6:24 am #49788
some other users reported this problem here and in the wordpress.org forum too. Kriesi told me that he could reproduce the bug with old Firefox browsers (Firefox 4,3, etc.). It seems like the new jquery version causes problems with the image uploader ad the menu manager.August 8, 2011 at 11:25 pm #49789
I’m getting the same issue exactly!
I am using Chrome & Safari and cannot get the image to update properly no matter what I try. I do not get the “Use image as featured
image” dialog at all. Is there a bug fix coming??

Sorry for the lack of communication. I ended up just reinstalling the theme…a simple solution that I somehow neglected for some time. Everything’s working well, but I’m still a little confused about the issue with resizing images in the slideshows…I know that is not the topic of this thread, so I’ll check it out in another one, but thanks for your willingness to help.January 24, 2012 at 11:23 am #49807
