Support » Fixing WordPress » 3.1 edit post problems

  • Just upgraded to 3.1. When I choose a post to edit or a Draft to edit the title appears, but the tool bar below the title does not and the body of the post text and pictures do not, but the red squiggles under word does show.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Not on mine…sorry

    Did your Custom Field area below the post show up?

    Mine disappeared – not sure if its an error or just me not finding something?

    My Custom Field area is still there.

    3.1 hides some screen options on posts & pages edit screensby default. Just turn on the ones you want.
    More info here:

    Alternately, put this in your theme’s functions.php if you want the custom fields to show up by default (from this thread):

    // Change what's hidden by default
    add_filter('default_hidden_meta_boxes', 'be_hidden_meta_boxes', 10, 2);
    function be_hidden_meta_boxes($hidden, $screen) {
    	if ( 'post' == $screen->base || 'page' == $screen->base )
    		$hidden = array('slugdiv', 'trackbacksdiv', 'postexcerpt', 'commentstatusdiv', 'commentsdiv', 'authordiv', 'revisionsdiv');
    		// removed 'postcustom',
    	return $hidden;

    (By the way, if you ever customized yours, that’s why they didn’t vanish. It only changed for people still using default.)

    OK, I added the code at the end of Functions.php

    I still don’t see Custom Fields below my posts or on the Dashboard Set up Screen Options

    My Drop down has the following:
    Show on screen
    Right Now Recent Comments Configure Incoming Links Configure Plugins QuickPress Recent Drafts WordPress Blog Configure Other WordPress News Configure
    Screen Layout
    Number of Columns: 1 2 3 4

    Unlike some of the examples I see with four lines of options and check boxes I have two. No Custom fields.

    Could there be a Plugin that is hiding something?

    Yes, it could. Read this for info on known plugin conflicts

    mmm back to work!

    Something is interfering, here!
