ah.. I am ONTO SOMETHING...
inspecting the page, I found this error message hidden inside of a
<div class="alert alert-error">

Could not move file into /var/www/html/[redacted]/media/kunena/attachments/86/sample-image-upload.png.

checking permissions on the "problem" folder:
drwxr-xr-x.   2 root   root     4096 Feb 16  2015 .
drwxr-xr-x. 256 apache apache   4096 Nov 30 11:04 ..
-rw-r--r--.   1 root   root   190331 Feb 16  2015 tiger_1.jpg

checking permissions on another, 'known good' folder:
drwxr-xr-x.   3 apache apache  12288 Nov 13 11:17 .
drwxr-xr-x. 256 apache apache   4096 Nov 30 11:04 ..
-rw-r--r--.   1 apache apache  44107 Jul  2  2015 20150219_173748.jpg

so... not sure how that folder permission got messed up, but I'm gonna try to fix it...

Hi! As explain just few posts before, I met exactly the same problem. So i just follow this topic... why create a new one for same need...?

I met exactly the same problem : I upload files (/images) they appear as thumbnails, but no way to insert them. Only the insert all button appears, but without action. Neither, no way to insert file by file.
More, i can't submit my post if i used the insert button (even if nothing is inserted in the post).
I cleared the cache, i tried Php 5.6 and Php 7, try to change template... nothing better. That the case for superadmin or register user...
Thank you for your help!

OK! confirmed a fix for this... for some reason, (some backup restoration glitch?) all "kunena media user" subfolders made on a certain date have the WRONG permissions applied, thus blocking access to the webserver!

My webserver in this instance is Apache, so I was able to fix it up using this linux command, to give the webserver ownership:

sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/{path-to-joomla-installation}/media/kunena/attachments/

This user can now post attachments normally ( as can a few others that I didn't even know were being blocked... )

Thanks for the info. I would not have thought of that, because other users could upload.

FWIW: our system as always been set "Add Suffix to URL" to "No" as the default configuration...
