Support » Fixing WordPress » Dashboard menus do not expand

  • Hi all,

    i made quite some wordpress sites and always got everything working (sometimes with help from this support forum, so thanks!) but i have an issue i can’t resolve:

    i installed a website (based on idream theme, some pages in menu structure, a form, a photo page, … nothing fancy) and everything looks fine on the front end.

    in the dashboard however: when i create a new page the functionality is fine before i press “publish” (for example the admin menu on the left expands and collapses when i click the arrow. i can expand, collapse and drag and drop the “publish” frame next to the wysiwyg editor,…)

    When i publish the page all this expanding, collapsing and drag&drop does no longer work. Also, for example i can not change the status of a published page to draft. Basic functionality is ok (i can change the content, update, trash,…). A more annoying problem is that i can not add hyperlinks anymore. When i insert a hyperlink, i get redirected to the posts overview and the hyperlink is not added.

    Does anyone have any idea how to handle this?

    Soon, also other people (not very familiar with wordpress) also have to edit this site and i need to get this fixed…

    i have following plugins installed:
    TinyMCE Advanced (with import editor-style.css enabled)
    Admin Menu Tree Page View
    CMS Page Order
    Collapsing Pages
    Custom Contact Forms
    Exclude Pages from Navigation
    Limit Login Attempts
    NextGEN Gallery
    WP Google Fonts

    Thank you very much in advance for reading this and helping me out!

    (Happy newyear to you all!)

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
