Media Library - Featured image is marked as Unattached

Ive been struggling with this for quite some time. But with more images and posts, it started to bother me A LOT.

So I noticed that when selecting a post Featured image that is already loaded into the Media Library, that image show "Unattached" in the "Uploaded to" column in the Media Library.

I have 1000 pictures uploaded to Media Library and now one by one Im attaching it to the post using featured image option. The problem ... I have no clue which image i have already used. I found quite few posts about this issue but there is no real solution.

I hope someone can finally look into it and fix it once and for all - its been years.

Hi @mikehaceman,

Welcome to Trac. First off, my apologies that this did not receive a more timely response.

A lot has changed since this issue was created, and the Classic Editor is now in maintenance only mode. The block editor uses the REST API to perform actions like this through JavaScript packages developed in the Gutenberg repository over on GitHub.

If this is still something you're interested in, please head over there and create an issue so it can be looked into.
