[closed] Updates to 3.5 and I can't post (27 posts)

    I recently auto updated to WordPress 3.5. I cannot post and I alter widgets; I do not have the Bulletproof on my blog. I removed all themes except the twenty ten/eleven/twelve. I also deleted all of my plugins except for Jetpack and Disqus. I still can't post. Is there anyone who can help me. I'm not too tech savvy and was thinking of going back to 3.4 but I sont understand fully what to do.

    "Going back to 3.4" won't actually fix any problems. You need to work out what the issue is.

    Do you see any error messages in your browser's javascript console?

  3. Have you also tried deactivating ALL of your plugins... manually refreshing your browser cache... and trying again? Just to test?

    Thank you for the quick replies

    I tried it on three seperate computers so I'm pretty certain it's not the browser. Where would I see these JavaScript errors? The major problem is the post section does not let me toggle to text. I can write a title and excerpt but no body. Seems weird. Someone told me to manually install the update in lieu of the auto update but I'm not sure how to do that.

    I don't get any error messages on the new post just a blank screen that I can't type on. The iPhone app allows me to alter text. I just can't do it from a browser (laptop, desktop or mobile). Juar frustrated. I spent the past two years culminating readers and I can't post.

    I deactivated all of them and tried again. Did not work.

  10. Okay. Did you also manually empty the cache in your browser? What browser are you using? Did you try using a different browser?

    Google Chrome; it also did not work on my desktop (also Chrome) and my iPhone, safari.

  12. Okay. Try adding this to your wp-config.php file.

    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);

    Thank you,

    where would I find this, in the dashboard? I've tried to locate it in my dashboard before but I cannot find it anymore. Would it be in my hosting site, Bluehost.

    Please start your own posts per the Forum Welcome.

  15. No.

    It is in your wp file directories... in the root where you installed WP. It is a file named wp-config.php.

    You'll need to download it from your server.. make the adjustment... and upload it back... over-writing the original.

    Be careful if you don't know what you're doing...

    Can I access the root file from the dashboard or is it somewhere in Bluehost?

  17. You will need to use either an FTP program like FileZilla (you'll also have to created an FTP account with your host).

    Or, you can use your hosts CPanel.

    Honestly.. if you've never done this before.. you might want to call them and have them help you set up and FTP account.

    Is it possible that WordPress will bring out an update which fixes this problem since so many of us have this issue?

    hy

    i have the same problem and i have add the line

    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);

    to my wp-config.php and it works.

  21. @seraph1976,

    Begin a new thread please. While your symptoms may seem similar... the root of the issue is probably very different.

    So I have to contact Bluehost and ask them to set up a FTP account. Will this be like a copy and paste type thing? I'm new at the coding stuff and, I don't mean to be frank, but am totally frustrated. Is there going to be an update from WordPress in case I can't figure out how to do this?

    This is to test for javascript errors not to check your browser. It is very easy to do and it will help to identify what the problem is. I don't think there will an update for this particular problem as it is plugin/theme based.

    @hasanmahmud
    If you want assistance start your own thread.

  25. Perfect kmessinger!! Thanks for that!!

    JOSH -

    Had 4 blogs down - Your Trick;

    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);

    Fixed the issue - I can now see to edit posts, create new posts (could not write in the area) and now can again used the media button and featured item button - pops up window again!

    FIXED ALL my current issues so far since upgrade THANK YOU!

    And can I ask why and what this fix did? - I have 23 clients blogs to upgrade all with different plugins and custom themes, so I like to know what did I cut out or do. Thanks Again!
