Support » Fixing WordPress » Can't create link in "edit post" screen after WP 3.5 upgrade

  • After upgrading to WP 3.5, on one of my blogs I am no longer able to use the botton for creating a new link in the edit post screen. When I highlight text and then click the button to add a link, nothing happens – I’ve tried on three different machines and operating systmes, and same problem every time. My site is A different blog, which I also upgraded to 3.5 is not having this problem, The /family blog is using the Weaver II theme and the site is using the Suffusion theme, but I’ve tried activating several other themes on the site, and the problem is still there, so maybe it’s not a theme-related issue. Any suggestions woyuld be appreciated.

  • I have the same problem. I can’t access stats either.

    we all have similars problems and this people does not fix it. dont know what to do

    I’ll see if deactiviating all my plug-ins helps at all, but it will take some time. Won’t get to it until later this evening at the earliest. Will update the forum of any progress. I’d love to hear from someone who has actually solved this problem, if any such person is out there.

    Try this, it has worked for other similar issues:

    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false );
    in my wp-config.php file just before
    require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php');

    I deactivated plugins one by one… When I deactivated the ‘KK I Like It’ plugin I was able to link again. Guess that’s the best thing to do.

    seebyzoe: When you reactivated the plug-in, did it break the site again, or not – or are you no longer going to use that plug-in?

    I reactivated it and it just stopped me being able to link again, so I’m just not going to use it for now.

    Same thing happened to me. The offending plug-in is called Uji Countdown. Once I deactivated it, everything seems to work. I have reactivated everything else, and the site seems to be working now. I don’t really need Uji Countdown, so I’ll just remove the shortcode from the page it’s on and delete the plug-in. Maybe I can find a different plug-in that will do the same thing.

    Same thing happened to me, It was the KK I like it plugin. hopefully they fix it, I have deactivated the plugin.

    I’m having the same issue, tried deactivating all plugins to no avail.
    Tried Tom’s suggestion, didn’t work 🙁

    This site is using the same theme as another that I’m working on, and I’m building child themes for each, but PHP wise they’re pretty much clones of each other. The only difference is the one with the issue is running WP 3.5, the other is still on 3.4.2.
