[resolved] Can't add new series (9 posts)

    I can't add a new series to posts because the "add field" is not displayed in Chrome, Firefox and IE. It works in Opera though. The problem started a while back with Chrome. Then after a while the add field also disappeared in IE and Firefox. I guess it is only a matter of time until I also can't add a new series in Opera. Perhaps this problem is related to the number of series? A CSS bug?

    Here is a screenshot

    There should be a form field for a new series title at the top, but it is missing in Chrome.

    I'm not able to reproduce this. It's likely there is a conflict with another them and/or plugin that is using similar js for the field. Are you seeing any errors in the console?

    Yeah, it could be a conflict with another plugin. I am not a developer, but I really wonder why WordPress doesn't prevent such conflicts.

    It is just strange that it works fine in Opera. I will try to find out what other plugin is the culprit as soon as I have more time (have to launch a test server for this.)

    I just discovered that I can add new series in all browsers on the Manage Series screen in the Posts menu. For now this workaround is good enough for me.

    Anyway, thanks for the reply.

    It's almost impossible to prevent such conflicts because of the design of WordPress.

    Well, in that case WordPress is probably poorly designed. Funny thing is that WordPress 3.7 will make things even worse. Imagine all the sites that will go down because of untested updates (some hopelessly optimistic people call it automatic updates) will lead to more plugin conflicts.

    Well in reality anytime you open up a product to be extended with themes or plugins its very difficult to enforce things so there are no conflicts with other products (especially when the product is a web app).

    As for the auto updates, I think they are a good thing actually and there has already been millions of updates going from 3.7 to 3.7.1 with no problems that I've heard of....

    I have worked with countless applications that support plugins including web applications, but I have never had so many problems as with WordPress. Instead of adding new features the WordPress team should get the plugin system right. Auto updates are a good thing for end users, but for businesses updating without testing is very unprofessional. You usually don't hear of these problems because many site owners notice it only months later that an update broke a plugin.
