    I can't add tags to posts since installing version 2.8. When I add a tag (in the 'post tags' box on the right hand side when editing a post), and click 'add', nothing happens.

    Are you using the plugin Category Icons?

    If you are using hyperdb, upgrade that.

    I am having the same problem.

    Update: If you have the plugin NextGen Gallery/Widget installed, deactivate it. I just did it and everything is working just fine.

    that's only a temp workaround.
    i don't have nextgen gallery so this doesn't help me.

    I had the same problem too, but it went away when I deactivated the "No Flash Uploader" plugin.

    My suggestion is to go through the plugin list and deactivate one by one to see if it helps.

    I've tried deactivating plugins but it didn't fix the problem for me. I'm encountering the same issue. Any help would be appreciated.

    Solution here. Problem came from your theme and the new JQUERY engine from 2.8

    I had the same problem since the upgrade to 2.8.3.
    For me it was the Simple Tags plugin. I disabled it and everything is working again.
    Check if you have a plugin installed that is not compatible with the version of WordPress, and try to disable it first.

    I have been struggling with this too! I was using IE6(just kidding) Firefox while trying to add tags, nothing worked.

    I opened the admin in Google chrome, tried adding a tag, and it worked. I then went back to Firefox and for some STUPID reasoning beyond my knowledge, the adding tags now worked!

    Coincidence? I really don't know, but try it! (I love Google Chrome BTW)

    I'm using WP 2.8.4 on Firefox 3.0.13 and can't add custom tags.

    anhblog.net - thanks for the link, but the link to the solution there does not work

    I don't have any of the plugins which the users above had disabled to make their fix.

    Anyone figured this out yet?

    Hello all,

    I found the solution on another thread:
    Upgrade your Podpress plugin from 8.8 to 8.8.1 and you should be able to add tags and upload images again.

    Cheers!

    Disable plugins and see if the problem goes, that means all of them, not just the ones reported to cause problems..

    It takes a few seconds to click disable for each plugin, then a few moments to open a new window/tab, test the page, then change focus back on the plugin page and re-enable if of no help...

    Try another browser, try another PC, try anything that requires less then a minute of time..

    If disabing plugins doesn't help, get yourself a local installation running (can provide further info on this), install a fresh copy of WordPress (not on your site) on the local install and try to replicate the problem. If the problem doesn't occur then you compare what differs from the new install and your problematic one (9/10 times it's a plugin problem - which can usually be isolated without testing locally)...

    I found my problem to be with WP Events Calendar plugin. I did an upgrade and then found out that the upgrade is still beta. I deleted the beta (6.6 beta) and reinstalled 6.5.2.1 and that solved the problem.

    There's a problem with wordpress 2.8 and simple tag plugin.
    Original tag input in edit post is not hidden, so if you try to use it fail.

    I fixed it with a small modification of a file:
    /simple-tags/2.7/inc/simple-tags.admin.php

    at line 108:
    replace this:
    remove_meta_box('tagsdiv', 'post', 'side');
    with this:
    remove_meta_box('tagsdiv-post_tag', 'post', 'side');

    Well, just to add to this... The plugin that caused my issue was "Position Yourself". After deactivating, everything was back to normal again.

    Maybe we can all just build a big database of these outdated plugins and figure out what they all have in common?

    I have the same problem.

    My wordpress version is 2.8.5 and I tried with disabled plugins+default 2.8.5 theme.

    This is a serious Bug, and it seems lot's of people having trouble with this.

    same problem here.

    I deactivated wp ajax event calendar and its ok now.

    best thing to do.. go through your plugins one by one. more than likely it is a plugin to do with ajax or java of somesort

    Exact same problem here. I deactivated the beta version of the plugin, and the tagging immediately starting working again.

    I had the same problem on my site truenewzealand.com. It was the "Position Yourself" plug-in for me too. Deactivate and try again.
