Support » Plugin: TinyMCE Advanced » Advanced link popup drop downs empty

  • Resolved Troy Chaplin


    When using the advanced linking tool, all the drop down menus are not returning any values.

    Using chrome the console shows the following error when the modal is triggered:

    Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method ‘_add’

    I know it’s very early in 3.5, but I thought you should be aware of the issue given how many people use your plugin.

    I’ve tested this running 3.5 with Twenty Twelve, and no other plugins activated except the TinyMCE Advanced

    I fixed it by modifying tiny_mce_popup.js


    tinymce.dom.Event._add(document, "focus", function () {


    tinymce.dom.Event.add(document, "focus", function () {

    Wish I could say the same, this did nothing to fix the issue. In any event, I have a rule of thumb to never modify core files or plugins, so I’ll wait until Ozz has time to look into this and release a new version.



    Thank you, everville. I’ve applied your fix and it’s working for me.

    Just updated the plugin to 3.5.8 (to match the TinyMCE version in WordPress 3.5). This should be fixed now.



    3.5.8 works for me 🙂

    Thank you, Andrew.

    Awesome! Thanks for the quick update Andrew!

    having issues with linking inside editor. Any fixes yet on this?

    I’m having same issue with WP 3.6.1 and TinyMCE advanced 3.5.8 so I’ve had to disable it. What a shame, it’s such a good plugin. I hope Ozz sees this and takes another look. In case its a conflict with another plugin here’s what I’m using:
    Admin Menu Tree Page View v 2.4
    Limit Login Attempts v 1.7.1
    NextGEN Gallery v 1.9.6
    that’s it!
    I really hope this can be resolved, and I agree with Troy Chaplin, I don’t amend plugin code – how can you then update?
