Support » Fixing WordPress » Dashboard Flyout Menu Won't Show Up After Updating to 3.4.2

  • Resolved FashionJ



    I just updated my WordPress to 3.4.2 and I started having this issue where the dashboard menu doesn’t “fly out” when I hover my mouse over it. I also cannot access the “Screen Options” or “Help” at the top of the page.

    *stolen from other post because I have done same steps*
    I DID go through the steps here: However, I don’t know how to “flush any caching plugins.”

    -I manually reinstalled WordPress 3.4.2 from the files
    -I deactivated all plugins
    -I switched to the TwentyTen theme

    None of this worked.

    -I have contacted my host and JSON support was already included in PHP
    -I have installed Hotfix 0.8 but it didn’t fix my issue.
    -When I go to I get a blank page.
    -I am running PHP version 5.3

    Another poster mentioned he had a jquery issue and when he added this it fixed his issue:

    if ( jQuery("#room-availability").length > 0 ){
      var dates = jQuery("#room-availability").val().split(',');

    I added this to my functions.php, and I get an internal server error. Can anyone please advise me on how to proceed?
    Thank you so much!

  • Hehehe, found my solution.
    In another forum, a user posted that he noticed WordPress is trying to load all his scripts all at once and he believed that may have been an issue but another user posted:
    “Script concatenation in admin area is normal behavior, but I am not sure that trying to load that many scripts is.

    You can disable concatenation by defining CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS constant to false (in wp-config.php would be fitting).”

    I added this line:
    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);
    to my wp-config.php file and now everything is back to normal 🙂
