Updrade to 3.8 (6 posts)

    I've just uploaded to the latest version of WP 3.8

    However now I cannot see tags that are attached to postss (editing the post).

    Also when I go to Screen Options and tick "Custom Fields" or "WordPress SEP by YOAST" to get those panels to show I just get closed panels with arrows that are upwards.

    When I click on the arrows nothing happems e.g the panel doesn't descend and show me the options I want and need to see.

    The errors I get (Chrome - latest version 31.0.1650.63) are

    Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < http://www.mysite.com/:1
    Uncaught TypeError: Object function (a,b){return new h.fn.init(a,b,d)} has no method 'widget' load-scripts.php?c=0&load%5B%5D=hoverIntent,common,admin-bar,schedule,wp-ajax-response,autosave,jqu…:631
    Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'sortable' load-scripts.php?c=0&load%5B%5D=hoverIntent,common,admin-bar,schedule,wp-ajax-response,autosave,jqu…:60
    event.returnValue is deprecated. Please use the standard event.preventDefault() instead.
    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'hasClass' of undefined load-scripts.php?c=0&load%5B%5D=hoverIntent,common,admin-bar,schedule,wp-ajax-response,autosave,jqu…:626
    3
    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'hasClass' of undefined

    These errros were not appearing before the update.

    Are these plugin related (I have updated all plugins that required one) or something else?

    At the moment I cannot manually set META titles, descriptions or see my tags (even though in the Post view - where all posts are shown) I can see tags are associated with the article. Therefore its only a problem when I edit the post.

    I just thought I would let you know you have issues as I want to roll back but don't really know how as I don't have a a backup of the previou version. Can you provide me a link please?

    Thanks

    sounds like some type of javascript error. I would suggest disabling all of your plugins to see if this corrects the issue. if it does, turn your plugins back on one at a time to determine which plugin is causing the error. if disabling all plugins doesn't fix the issue, try switching the current theme to one of the built-in WP themes (twentyfourteen, twentythirteen, etc)

    Have you tried:
    - deactivating ALL plugins temporarily to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the problematic plugin(s). If you can't get into your admin dashboard, try deactivating via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides. If applicable, also remember to deactivate any plugins in the mu-plugins folder. The easiest way is to rename that folder to mu-plugins-old.
    - switching to the unedited default, core-bundled Theme (such as Twenty Twelve, Twenty Thirteen or Twenty Fourteen) for a moment using the WP dashboard to rule out any theme-specific issue. If you don't have access to your admin area, you can switch to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides. Alternately, you can remove other themes except the default theme. That will force your site to use it.
    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems (because the hooks remain unless plugins completely removed or some plugins stick around in cached files. So by renaming the folder, you break them and force them inactive).
    - If the above troubleshooting steps fail to resolve the issue, try manually re-uploading all files and folders EXCEPT the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones. Read the Manual Update directions first!
    - Always backup everything (including your database) before doing any actions, just in case.

    Hi

    It seemed to be the Jetpack plugin.

    In fact I have had lots of issues with this plugin.

    I have had to disable Omnisearch due to another bug (can't remember which, but I reported it) - Also the stats don't take me to the stats page but instead show me the WP-O-Matic dashboard.

    The errors I was also getting seemed to involve the editor itself e.g

    Uncaught ReferenceError: switchEditors is not defined post.php?post=46367&action=edit:560

    Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'wpdialog' editor_plugin.js?ver=359-20131026:1

    I have upgraded the Jetpack plugin and can now see the tags and other parts of the edit post page.

    However the other issues (stats / Omnisearch) still remain.

    Thanks

    I have many a time told them of issues with their plugins. Some have been fixed, others not.

    Seems easier just to fix it myself if possible.
