towhid I've tried:
  • Disabling Addons
  • Adding code to the functions.php
  • if ( current_user_can('author') && !current_user_can('upload_files') )
    add_action('admin_init', 'allow_contributor_uploads');
    function allow_contributor_uploads() {
    $contributor = get_role('author');
  • Clearing website and browser caches
It's only an issue with the "Add Media" button with the user role set to author. I have limited the Author access to the dashboard which may conflict, but using the code I entered it should bypass any conflicts. However if I use the attachment button at the bottom, it will upload the image to be used in a later post. (But doesn't attach it to the current.) Please assist.

Hi there,

Sorry I forgot to update that I resolved this issue..

For those who experience this specific issue, all I needed to do was get an addon to edit the author permissions and change the permissions to include all of the following:


Not all are enabled by default on the Author account which can cause some conflicts.
