No option to upload with file manager

Permalink 2 users found helpful
Its been a while since I've done a major amount of work on my site and I have just gone to upload a few more images and found that I am unable to do so on file manager - see picture. There is no option up the top to add or upload files. Replacing old files also does not seem to work. I have logged in as both an administrator and editor, both of which groups have permission to add files.

I haven't found anything like this on the forums.

Am using latest version

Any advice please?

What do you mean ... "you filled it back in"? How?

I have the same problem, it does not show up in the file manager.
I am not able to update from - it shows I don't need to upgrade.

I received the following reply on another forum and thought I'd pass it on to you.

"Usually this is because the "Allowed File-types" gets "lost", and usually after upgrading from to (well for me anyway).
If the file types box is blank/empty, then no buttons are displayed in the file manager."

Go here to see the example:

I hope this helps you, as it did me.

I was already questioning if my system is broken.

Thx very much!

Note: I my case it was due to the installation of some Addons (mostly gallery and some dashboard stuff, can't really name it in particular because i did not recognize the issue straight away). Just to mention that this problem ist not only caused by updates.
