this is not programming related... – Cristian Jun 22 '10 at 13:39
Have you edited your WordPress template. Sounds like you edited some core WP files :( – danixd Jun 22 '10 at 13:43
Because it's not? This would be programming related if it was a more general question about wordpress plugins or what not. – ShaneC Jun 22 '10 at 13:44
there is a strong possibility a plugin could've caused this, but deactivating all plugins doesn't seem to solve my issue. – InnateDev Jun 22 '10 at 14:02
found the problem: wp search mu - when searching from the media library it returns posts as well as media – InnateDev Jun 22 '10 at 15:00

Anyone using the wp search mu plugin will have the same problem - this info is really useful if one is looking for it. wp search mu has a bug: when searching the media library on post/pages OR the media library itself, the plugin returns post_type: post as media and not only post_type: attachment. solution: disable the plugin and try some other search plugin

+1 for taking the time to explain what was going wrong with your installation/plugins. – Digital Essence Mar 24 '11 at 13:51
