Broken Images After Updating to WordPress 5.5

This support request was posted in Flatbase by ErikBowitz

Request ID #40241 In Progress
  • After updating to WordPress version 5.5 my featured images all broke and some (not all) on-page images broke as well.

    I also noticed some blank boxes added to my knowledge card section.

    Has anyone else noticed image related bugs after switching to WP V.5.5?

    Any diagnosis assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Erik,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. I’m sorry to hear that.

    I visited your site and I’m seeing the images in the pages and articles I’ve been visiting. Would you please share with me a specific case of a page where an image is not loading and where it should be displayed so I can take a look?

    Thank you,

    Hi Juan,

    Thank you for the follow up. I ended up reverting my site back to the previous version of WordPress and it fixed everything.

    However I still think Nicethemes may want to look into updating their themes for WordPress 5.5. When I updated it broke all of my featured images, a good share of images on page, and messed up the knowledge cards on one site too.

    Hi Erik,

    Thank you for the follow up.

    Yes, WordPress deprecated some JavaScript parts on this release, and it’s causing trouble for theme and plugin authors. I wanted to check your site to basically confirm if it was something on Flatbase end or if it was a compatibility issue with some other plugin. We’ll be reviewing this, thanks for the heads up.
