WordPress Media Uploader Not Saving Title

I have not been posting a bunch lately however I am hoping I finally have the motivation to do so, but regardless I have not been posting for awhile which is why I just noticed the issue I was having uploading images via the WordPress Media Uploader. Everything appeared to work fine when uploading an image via the WordPress Admin however once I would save the image the Title would not save. If I edited the image after the initial upload the Title would save just fine. Below is how I was able to resolve the issue with the Title not saving on images uploaded via the WordPress Media Uploader.

Flexible Upload D3Z Edition WordPress Plugin Not Working On WordPress 3.X

I have been using the Flexible Upload D3Z Edition WordPress plugin for a couple years now on various sites that I work on or manage. To me it provides a much easier interface to upload images while building thumbnails on the fly than the default WordPress image media upload. The issue is the Flexible Upload D3Z Edition plugin has not been updated since WordPress version 2.6.X so it has broken on more than one occasion. So when upgrading to WordPress 3 recently it broke the Flexible Upload D3Z Edition plugin and below I describe how to fix the plugin so it will operate without issue in WordPress 3.X.

How To Remove The NextGen Gallery Plugin From Your WordPress Blog

I have used the NextGen Gallery WordPress plugin on a bunch of different projects and have always been satisfied with the functionality. On a recent WordPress project I was working on I installed NextGen Gallery assuming I would use it however after I got a bit further on the project I decided it wasn’t necessary and that it would be easier to simply use the default WordPress media uploading capabilities along with the “Lightbox 2” and the “Flexible Upload D3Z Edition” WordPress plugins instead. While NextGen gallery has tons of functionality and typically is easy to use for this project there would be many authors and I needed the path of least resistance to allow authors to write articles.
