    If you have encountered an error wp.media not defined while uploading images for your WordPress custom posts or taxonomies. Below is the quick fix for your help.

    Just paste the code in your theme’s functions.php file & start uploading your media again without any hassle.

    function load_wp_media_files() {
    wp_enqueue_media();
    }
    add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'load_wp_media_files' );

    What this hook will do is enqueue all scripts, styles & settings necessary to use all JS media APIs into all of our admin pages.
