certain dashboard functions not working

  • Not sure what to call this, but I’m running into a problem where functions in my wordpress dashboard aren’t working. Specifically, anything that adds a # to the end of a URL. For instance:

    When I go to the options page for my theme, I get this URL:
    wp-admin/admin.php?page=options-framework
    When I click on a button within that page I get this URL:
    wp-admin/admin.php?page=options-framework#of-option-css
    But nothing loads on the screen. It used to bring me to the custom CSS field.

    It seems to not solely be a theme issue, because I find the same problem within one of my plugins (Redirection).
    I go to:
    wp-admin/tools.php?page=redirection.php
    and click on an option, and get:
    wp-admin/tools.php?page=redirection.php#select-all
    but nothing actually happens.

    Is this a php issue of some kind? The only thing I’ve done to the site lately is add a video gallery pluging, found here:
    http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/contus-video-gallery

    But uninstalling the plugin didn’t fix the issue.

    I’m paralyzed right now, unable to do many tasks I need to do regularly, so need help asap on this. Will greatly appreciate any help any of you can offer!

  • So it’s a “dashboard-wide” issue. I find the same problem when I use basic wordpress functions, like:

    /wp-admin/edit.php
    when I try to use “quick edit” on a post/page, I get this:
    wp-admin/edit.php#
    but nothing happens. The function doesn’t do anything.

    Need help on this, please!

    Have you tried deactivating ALL plugins by renaming the plugins folder on the server?

    If that doesn’t help, try renaming your active theme folder so WP will use a default theme.

    Ok, so renaming the plugins folder did work! Now, I suppose I need to go through each plugin, deactivating one by one, right?

    Yep :)!

    Thanks for the help. We were able to find the offending plugins (two plugins by the same author that don’t seem to be doing well with 3.7.1
