Hello folks
during routine WP version upgrade as usual, there was one strange step (update your database) which i did succesfully through WP admin, then upgraded to 5.5 which also went well.
now that images won't load :(

I also checked the source code, it was weird, image name changes to unknown.jpg ????

<img class="lazy-load preload-me" src="data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg%20xmlns%3D&#39;http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2000%2Fsvg&#39;%20viewBox%3D&#39;0%200%201000%20666&#39;%2F%3E" data-src="https://www.surrealnightlife.com/las-vegas/blog/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/unnamed.jpg" data-srcset="https://www.surrealnightlife.com/las-vegas/blog/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/unnamed.jpg 1000w" width="1000" height="666" title="unnamed" alt="" />

Hi there, welcome to Trac! Thanks for the report.

I'm sorry to hear you are having issues with your website since the latest update, but this topic is best discussed on the support forums or directly with the developer of your theme or website.

The most likely issue is that a theme/plugin on your site is running old JavaScript code. Could you try installing and activating this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/enable-jquery-migrate-helper/.

This will confirm that there is JavaScript on your site that needs to be updated to follow more modern jQuery practices. You can leave the plugin active for the time being, but the breaking code will need to be updated before the next step of the Upgrading jQuery in Core roadmap.

If this does not fix the issue, feel free to create a support topic.

Dear Mukesh,
thank you so much for responding my ticket, you are the man!!
I have installed the plug in and that solved the problem, my images are loading fine now.
I assume eventually I need a permanent solution with different theme.
thank you once again. its all good now.
