3.5 Broke "Create Link" button and "Text" tab in post editor

  • After upgrading to 3.5 I went to create a post and found that the create a link button was not functioning. Clicking on it produced no popup like it usually does. Figuring it was a new patch problem I decided to go to text editor to manually create the link. The text tab would not work.

    I am using WP 3.5. I cleared both my site and browser’s cache. I am using the latest release version of Firefox on Windows 7 64 bit machine. I have 8 plugins which I disabled and still had the same results.

    The problem is in the editor in the admin area when attempting to create or edit posts.

  • same here 🙁

    tried with chrome and safari on mac osx 10.7

    I get a link editor window, but the page becomes very long – have to scroll down – and the window appears at the extreme bottom left of the page, no internal links available.

    Yep, same here. It also doesn’t appear to be processing rich text. A blog I had scheduled to go out today had an iframe in it, and when published under Elvin it didn’t come out right.

    try:
    – reading the troubleshooting 3.5 master list to see if any of your problems is listed there: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-35-master-list

    If you’re experiencing issues with your interactive functionality this may be due to JavaScript errors or conflicts. This guide will show you how to diagnose JavaScript issues in different browsers: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Your_Browser_to_Diagnose_JavaScript_Errors
    Please report javascript errors here.

    Also try:
    – flushing any caching plugins you might be running, as well as server and/or browser caches.

    – 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 default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder from a fresh download of WordPress. by using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides (Manual Update).

    – re-running the upgrade via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    That hasn’t worked for me I’m afraid.

    I’m experiencing this as well, with the link input box appearing at the VERY bottom left of the screen: http://quick-markup.com/p/50c8ce96e5cf3
    (Scroll to the bottom of the screenshot)

    It’s definitely a plugin incompatibility issue, since linking works just fine on my stripped-down personal blog… but is borked on all my work blogs.

    define('SCRIPT_DEBUG', true); had little effect. Link dialogue wouldn’t appear unless I double clicked, then it’d appear down in the bottom left. When attempting to “add link” the page reverts back to the all posts page.

    (It did however allow the text tab to work)

    Disabling plugins gives some limited results. Instead of changing the page it does add the link, but the link dialogue does not dismiss, the page is still greyed out, and canceling the dialogue does not work (the rest of the page remains disabled) and the only way out is to reload or back button.

    Opening in the latest version of IE had the same results

    Found the problem. It’s my theme. Strange that theme would effect the editor. But meh… guess I have to wait for an update unless someone has an idea on how to fix it?

    Interesting: could this be a theme issue instead of a plugin incompatibility? On my sites where the link button works, I’m using default themes. On the sites where the link button is NOT working, I have custom templates.

    Yes, it seems to stem from your theme. I’d suggest contacting your theme’s author to try and troubleshoot what’s going on.

    I’m getting this problem with the standard 2012 theme.

    My theme’s author is a bbPress core dev, so if it’s a theme issue, it’ll get found.

    I found this same problem with a plugin called Clickbump SEO. It was queuing up it’s own jQuery UI which can also produce the same error.

    Can a mod please add that to the master list so other people don’t spend an hour chasing their tails like I did? 🙂

    Do you have a url for that plugin?
