Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot add Tags, Upload Images WP 3.4.2

  • Hello,

    I recently updated to WP 3.4.2 and now when I go to the website I am having the following issues:

    1. Featured Scroller on homepage does no longer scrolls.
    2. I cannot add tags when adding a new post
    3. I cannot upload images .

    I have no clue on what is wrong. I have updated my plugins. I have deactivated all the plugins and activated them one at a time with no results.

    Can anyone help?

  • This sounds like a javascript problem, could you please post a link to your site.

    Thanks, yup, you have a whole bunch of js errors on your home page, 19 in fact.

    Looking closely at your /js files I noticed in cufon-yui.js that it starts with:

     * Copyright (c) 2009 Simo Kinnunen.
     * Licensed under the MIT license.

    Those two “�” are your problem… I think you need to check the files and see why there are characters in there that are not in the character set of the site… the comment block should start with “/**”

    jQuery is not being loaded on the site at all – so something is broken there too – which is why your slider is not working.

    Go through all the files you are pulling in and fix them, make sure you are loading the .js correctly using wp_enqueue_script() in functions.php and so on.

    Thank you for taking the time to check this out for me. I am going to check the .js flies now.

    Max, I checked your suggestions and found the code in .js and fixed it. The slider is now working but I still cannot Add a Tag when adding a new Post nor can I Add a image under the Media section. Can you take another look? Thank you again.

    I am having the same issue with pictures. I thought maybe I was dumb that I couldn’t figure out how to link the photo in the post. but maybe its not me.

    I am having the same issue with my wordpress instalation, i upgraded my jquery to 1.8.1, but still nothing. Someone please any suggestion….

    I have solved my problem. Try these steps below:

    1. Download a fresh copy of WordPress
    2. Copy over a fresh copy of wp-includes/js via FTP to your site
    3. Clear out your browser’s cache

    I hope this helps.

    where might I find this?

    Copy over a fresh copy of wp-includes/js via FTP to your site

    wp-includes is a folder in a WordPress installation, by copying it over from the source, you replace all the standard WordPress includes with a fresh copy from the WordPress install.

    You can download the WordPress install files here:

    Is anyone willing to help me with a similar problem? My site,, previously showed a slider below the header. But after upgrading to wordpress 3.4.2 it won’t appear. It is not a plugin but unfortunately the theme provider just went out of business. I’ll change to a different theme soon because of this, but am just looking for a temporary fix. Thank you.
