Features Not Working on Existing Posts (2 posts)

    Since upgrading to the latest version of WordPress, a bunch of features are no longer working only when I am editing existing posts.

    Specifically, the "Add Media" button, "Screen Options" at the top right, and a few plugins, including the Yoast SEO plugin.

    If I add a new post, then everything works during that first session. But once I save a post and go back into it...poof...all this stuff breaks. Any ideas?

    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 default 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.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder and wp-config.php & root .htaccess files - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.
