    This has been and continues to remain an ongoing issue with the Enfold Theme. When Trying to upload images to the media library, especially .PNG images, the upload fails and reports and http error. I have seen multiple posts in this forum with users experiencing the same issue. This is an ongoing problem and needs to get fixed. I am currently building 5 sites with this theme and the error occurs on all implementations.


      Here is a solution that works 100% of the time to get your images uploaded to the library. Simply change the theme you are using to a default theme like 2015 or 2014. Upload your images to the library as usual. Once the images have been uploaded, switch your theme back to Enfold and carry on with editing the site.


    Hey jeffhd1ckey!

    Could you provide us with a temporary admin login so that we can take a closer look please?

    I think increasing php memory limit on your server could solve it (to at least 128MB). You might need to contact your host for it or follow this instructions: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

    Let us know if this helps.



    That is not the issue here. My php memory limit is twice that now. This is a theme specific issue. It happens ONLY with Enfold. All other themes work fine.

    Actually, this is a server related issue. What is the file size of the images that you’re trying to upload? Maybe, increasing the maximum allowed size for uploaded files and max post size will help:

    upload_max_filesize = 64M
    post_max_size = 64M

    If it doesn’t work, try to edit the .htaccess file then add this line at the very top:

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

    If those fix are not enough, try to convert the image to jpg then upload it again. Or follow the solution provided here: http://codex.wordpress.org/User:Hakre/Htaccess_Auth_Excludes



    All due respect, If this was a server issue, the same thing would occur when I switched themes. It does not.

    Also, these files are not large at all. The problem is not limited to .PNG images, it occurs on .JPG, .GIF, .PNG and .PDF files. I have recreated this issue on no less than six sites using Enfold now. On all six sites, when I Switch to ANY other theme, the uploads work flawlessly, so I don’t see how this is a server issue. I am not switching severs when I switch theme. Also, I have researched this issue extensively and numerous other members of this forum have also reported the exact same issue.

    Why does this only occur on Enfold and not on then other 4-5 themes I have switched (2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, BE,) to that allow me to flawlessly upload images to the media library when Enfold will not??



    OK. It’s not happening on most Enfold installation, which is more than 50,000++ and counting, so it’s either server related or a third party plugin is causing the issue. If this is a common Enfold installation issue then we would have 50,000++ inquiries regarding this specific issue but we don’t. Now, did you follow the suggestion provided in the previous post? Please get back to us after.



    Hi all,

    well it may be a server problem, but it only happens with enfold. I have a couple of websites now with enfold and I have to upload each image 10 times before getting it up without error. And as jeff suggested, switching to other theme doesn’t produce this error.

    My stats:
    PHP Version: 5.4.40
    MySQL Version: 5.6.23
    Web Server Info: Apache

    WordPress Memory Limit: 128MB
    PHP Safe Mode: No
    PHP Memory Limit: 128M
    PHP Upload Max Size: 150M
    PHP Post Max Size: 100M
    PHP Upload Max Filesize: 150M

    Hi again,

    your suggestion would lower my available memory and limits, so no, I have not tried it.
    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php in .htaccess destroys my website.

    It doesn’t matter, I won’t be sending you my login information since I don’t believe you can do anything about this. It’s a problem that I had on 2 different hosting providers, and multiple websites and versions of enfold. I’ll use it as is, changing theme when uploading images, and that’s it.
