ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined (22 posts)

    I am unable to add images or edit widgets or edit slugs or even change accessibility options by clicking on 'screen options'.

    Basically nothing happens when I click. Even changing the theme to Twenty eleven does not solve the problem. I am using WPZOOM's MONOGRAPH THEME.

    All this works fine with IE7.

    In console I see this error- ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined

    I have been stuck with issue for about a week and I have tried everything including WP re-install.

    I think a lot of people are affected by this issue/WP bug and WP support should do something about it.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    There is no known issue in WordPress 3.3 of this type.

    I have tried

    - Deactivating all plugin process

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme

    - re-installing WP (same as re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes )

    - resetting the plugins folder

    None of these worked.

    I am using 3.3.2

    Can we see the site using Twenty Eleven with no plugin active?

    I have checked its not working.

    Its a live site so it would be difficult to change the theme. But if its necessary then I will let me know.

    I will change as soon as you tell me to.

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at http://www.your_site.com.

    It wasn't 10 minutes ago for me. Now - without reactivating anything - try adding a link to a Post or Page.

    Incidentally, I'm not seeing any jQuery issues now either.

    Try adding define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false ); to the bottom of your wp-config.php file (just before the require_once line).

    That worked like a charm.

    Thank you so very much.

    Is this a WP bug? I dint understand the reason for it.

    It's not a WP bug but a server issue. In order to increase performance, WP concatenates scripts (links them together in a chain or series). Unfortunately some servers can't cope with this, so you've just turned that feature off in WordPress.

    It works to me too.
    Thanks

    PS
    maybe this tip has to be written in all wp-config.php files,
    commented by default

    Thank you! This advice saved my blog (WP 3.5, problem appeared after update).
