Unable to add image to description

When adding text to the description I have added text and add media all I get is a text link to the image. I would like to add multiple images to make it more visual. How do I add them as you would traditionally or is there another way?

I am using WP 5.5 and EE4

Hi there,

That should happen by default, unless something else on the site is changing the media library.

When selecting an image it should look something like this:

On your site do you see something different?

Can you add some screenshots that show what happens?

Here is what it looks like on the backend:

Here is the frontend view – just a text link:

Click the button to add the image, I assume you are using the ‘Add Media’ button?

Then select the image but don’t click to insert that into the post, can you add a screenshot of what you see there, please?

Yes I am using the ‘Add Media’.
This is the file selected:

To your comment:
The images not working from your other thread is strange and not related to the version of EE4 you are using, and it looks like something is altering the return from the media library.

This is the main site of a multisite setup. Many pages including the home page and each multisite within have images have loaded using the block editor.

I tried for giggles to just drag and drop and now it works as it should. Very interesting scenario. Glad to have that working. Yay!

Yeah that’s not something I’ve seen before and is pretty strange.

To troubleshoot if you create a new temp site with just Event Espresso and activated and a default them on that site, does the same happen?

Within this multisite it didn’t give me the text link issue. It was the full visual graphic. So odd the main site gave the issue, not the subsites.

Thank you for looking into this for us. Hopefully this doesn’t happen to someone else.
