    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.



    some other users reported this problem here and in the 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.


    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??





    we already released an update for Brightbox (version 1.2.1). You’re using version 1.0.0. You can download the update at


    I’m having the same problem. I’ve tried deleting all of my plugins to make sure none of them are conflicting with other scripts…besides that I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions?


    For some reason I can’t get my main features image to work on my blog anymore. I deactivates plugins, an tired different browsers and I also updated to the new 1.2 version. seems like a query issue but can’t figure it out. Please help.

    Kriesi released an update yesterday which fixes an upload image bug/featured image bug which occured for some user. Please download the update at and replace the old files with the updated files (mentioned in version.rtf).



    I just upgraded to WordPress 3.2.1 and now my featured media is is not working, I get similar things happening as mentioned above.

    If all it is to upgrade the theme what files would I have to owerwrite to achive this?



    in your version.rtf you can see which files were updated, replace the old files with the newly provided ones.



    that worked nicely, thank you!


    Glad we could help :)



    Just created your user profile. You should have received the login/password in your email. Any help would be appreciated.



    Dude is away for about another 10 days, maybe you could send Kriesi your info through the contact page.


    will do. thanks man



    Hey, did you already send your details? didnt recive a message yet :)

    Please also include your ftp details once you send them, so I can apply a fix directly if necessary ;)




    Hey Kriesi,

    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.


    Any solutions for the Corona theme? I have the same problem – uploading images to the Featured Media.

    (Sorry for posting my request in different topics, but I want to get it done – cause I paid $35…)
