CPT Image uploader broken WordPress


I have some code to upload x4 images into a custom post type named 'Accommodation'.
After a recent update to WP 3.9.1, the following script broke. The 'Choose Image' button won't work

Can someone please fix the code to ensure this doesn't break in the future.

jQuery(function(jQuery) {
jQuery('.custom_upload_image_button').click(function() {
formfield = jQuery(this).siblings('.custom_upload_image');
preview = jQuery(this).siblings('.custom_preview_image');
tb_show('', 'media-upload.php?type=image&TB_iframe=true');

window.send_to_editor = function(html) {
imgurl = jQuery('img',html).attr('src');
classes = jQuery('img', html).attr('class');
id = classes.replace(/(.*?)wp-image-/, '');
preview.attr('src', imgurl);
preview.attr('width', "100");
preview.attr('height', "100");
return false;

jQuery('.custom_clear_image_button').click(function() {
var defaultImage = jQuery(this).parent().siblings('.custom_default_image').text();
jQuery(this).parent().siblings('.custom_preview_image').attr('src', defaultImage);
return false;


function add_custom_meta_box() {
'custom_meta_box', // $id
'Images', // $title
'show_custom_meta_box', // $callback
'normal', // $context
'high'); // $priority

add_action('add_meta_boxes', 'add_custom_meta_box');

$prefix = 'custom_';
$custom_meta_fields = array(

'label' => 'Image1',
'name' => 'Image1',
'desc' => 'A description for the field.',
'id' => $prefix.'image1',
'type' => 'image'

'label' => 'Image2',
'name' => 'Image2',
'desc' => 'A description for the field.',
'id' => $prefix.'image2',
'type' => 'image'

'label' => 'Image3',
'name' => 'Image3',
'desc' => 'A description for the field.',
'id' => $prefix.'image3',
'type' => 'image'

'label' => 'Image4',
'name' => 'Image4',
'desc' => 'A description for the field.',
'id' => $prefix.'image4',
'type' => 'image'

function show_custom_meta_box() {
global $custom_meta_fields, $post;

// Use nonce for verification
echo '<input type="hidden" name="custom_meta_box_nonce" value="'.wp_create_nonce(basename(__FILE__)).'" />';

// Begin the field table and loop
echo '<table class="form-table">';
echo '<tr><td colspan="2">Upload an image and then click "insert into post". To delete an image just prese "Remove Image".Images will automatically resized to proper width and random height.<br/><b>Make sure you upload image with minimum width of 900px</b></td></tr>';

foreach ($custom_meta_fields as $field) {
// get value of this field if it exists for this post
$meta = get_post_meta($post->ID, $field['id'], true);
// begin a table row with
echo '<tr>
<th><label for="'.$field['id'].'">'.$field['label'].'</label></th>

switch($field['type']) {
case 'image':
$image = get_template_directory_uri().'/images/image.png';
echo '<span class="custom_default_image" style="display:none">'.$image.'</span>';

if ($meta) { $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src($meta, 'medium'); $image = $image[0]; }
echo '<input name="'.$field['id'].'" type="hidden" class="custom_upload_image" value="'.$meta.'" />
<img src="'.$image.'" class="custom_preview_image" alt="" width="100" height="100" /><br />
<input class="custom_upload_image_button button" type="button" value="Choose Image" />
<small> <a href="#" class="custom_clear_image_button">Remove Image</a></small>
<br clear="all" /><span class="description">'.$field['desc'].'';
} //end switch
echo '</td></tr>';
} // end foreach
echo '</table>'; // end table

function save_custom_meta($post_id) {
global $custom_meta_fields;

// verify nonce
if (!wp_verify_nonce($_POST['custom_meta_box_nonce'], basename(__FILE__)))
return $post_id;
// check autosave

// check permissions
if ('page' == $_POST['post_type']) {
if (!current_user_can('edit_page', $post_id))
return $post_id;
} elseif (!current_user_can('edit_post', $post_id)) {
return $post_id;

// loop through fields and save the data
foreach ($custom_meta_fields as $field) {
$old = get_post_meta($post_id, $field['id'], true);
$new = $_POST[$field['id']];
if ($new && $new != $old) {
update_post_meta($post_id, $field['id'], $new);
} elseif ('' == $new && $old) {
delete_post_meta($post_id, $field['id'], $old);
} // end foreach
add_action('save_post', 'save_custom_meta');

Bob answers:

For me above script is working fine with wp 3.9.1 in my localhost.

Please check other plugin or theme script is not conflicting with it.

If you can provide access then I would like to check it for you.

please check your console to see if any other error is there.
