While in Customizer, trying to add header image, I click select and crop and nothing happens

    As subject states – I’m in Customizer. I am trying to replace my header. I click on ‘add new image’, select the header I want, click select and crop….then nothing happens….nothing. I’ve tried in incognito window, using a different browser (chrome and opera), clearing cache, tried adding an image elsewhere (same result). I’m able to customize other aspects, like widgets, etc, but I can not add any images. I have not added any plugins or made any changes since the last time I used customizer (4 months ago) and added images with no issues, all plugins are up to date/current.


    On step 2, I thought maybe it was just taking a while to load…so I stepped away and came back half an hour later and it was still on the same white doing nothing screen.

    I’m on PhP 7.2, WP 5.3.2, host is bluehost, Active Theme: Daisy Store (daisy-store)
    Version 1.0.3…not sure what other information you might need? I would cry for days if you say I have to change my theme. I don’t think I’d be able to handle that emotionally.

    Any thoughts? I am at a total loss.



    I went to customizer, switched to “Preview” a few other themes. First two are WP themes Twenty Nineteen and Twenty Twenty.
    Twenty Nineteen: No option for header, so I head to Site Identity/logo/Select logo, searched my logo, selected, clicked select. Next screen is again, the white screen, nothing happening…not even the lil grey loading circle like I see when it’s loading the images in media gallery. Nothing. Screenshot Step #6 (below screenshots) is after ten minutes of waiting.
    Twenty Twenty: Same exact thing as Twenty Nineteen.


    So I went back, chose, installed and previewed another (used filters e-commerce, Custom Colors, Custom Header, Featured Images, Footer Widgets, Theme Options, Right Sidebar) called VW Eco Nature. Mind you, I’m in preview mode when trying these. I haven’t actually changed my theme to attempt this and I have not deactivated any plugins – because the issue is with Customizer loading the crop and select window – the next step after choosing an image – did a quick glance around each theme change and content seems to be loading fine, which tells me plugins are compatible.

    I ran THEME CHECK plugin on Daisy Store: Daisy Store passed all the tests:
