Grid Media Library Not Loading

Description

Hi, I'm going nuts, WordPress' most badly designed feature: The Ever-Damned Library.. Once again I'm getting the dreaded issue of the "Grid Media Library Won't Load".

OK NOW TO THE ACTUAL ISSUE.. I got so pissed off I reinstalled the site (losing hours and hours of work that I'll have to rebuild it all) I'm working on from scratch (I mean from SCRATCH, new database,I really mean from scratch.. AND WHAT ?!!! I already get the gallery in grid mode spinning forever and showing NOTHING... So it cannot be said it is due to plugins or a theme, corrupt database and all that blah blah I read all over forums year after year when (loads of) people face this recurring situation..

SO NOW WHAT ??
How much more can one do than reinstall a whole install from scratch ?!? Yes this is really upsetting because after a few years of using WP I still don't trust it and am always worried I'll run into issues that are Media Library-related for the most part.. over and over again.


PS: I'm sure at the top of the WP food chain they know the Media Library is their Achilles heel. feels like it should be redesigned from scratch as well... The Media library has given me (and many people, reading all the entries related to it over time) so much heartache over the years, incarnation after update, after upgrade.. can this Jurassic Park thing be redesigned to work and adapt to true web design some day ? So that it actually works and without this totally outdated and very limiting "by date" classification" (no wonder so many people see WordPress as "just a blogging platform".

It means there is either a JavaScript error or an error in the AJAX response from server.

  1. Could you verify there are no JavaScript errors in your browser console?
  2. Are there any errors in server error log?

I just realized it happens when there is a functions.php file in my child-theme folder (I always use child-themes). Odd part is that the functions.php is empty, only content it has is: <?php ?>

As soon as I remove the file the grid library behaves correctly..

Replying to ianstudio:

Make sure it does not have a UTF-8 byte order mark or any whitespace before <?php or after ?>.
