Support » Fixing WordPress » Lost functionality of admin menus in 3.3.1

  • Upgraded from WP 3.3 to 3.3.1 and upgraded themes as well (Brunelleschi, 2011 and 2010). Lost all options when rolling over admin menu, e.g can’t access Appearance/Editor. Tried the following:
    Disabled all plug-ins, changed theme to 2012 standard, cleared firefox cache, no difference.
    Upgraded firefox to 9.0, no difference.
    Even tried the expanded admin menus plugin, no difference.
    I’m not a WP or CSS expert so I’m hoping there’s an easy to understand solution to this? Thanks in advance for any solutions offered.
    Suse.

  • I’m seeing the same problem in IE9, Firefox and Chrome, the hover menus have gone – they still expand though.

    the screen options and help tabs are not working either after I upgraded

    I have cleared caches and cookies etc in all browsers.

    Yep, same problem in Chrome and can’t get menus to expand at all. Also, have no screen options or help tabs working now. Additional problem is now can’t move any widgets from Available widgets to widget areas. I really hope someone has the magic answer to all this!

    Just tried the widgets and I can’t move anything either 🙁

    ok, just updated another copy of WP on a different server and that works so it’s not WP but something in the update has caused one of my installs to stop working as it should.

    Off to look at what changed from 3.3 to 3.3.1

    OK, my problem is a plugin.

    Can I ask which plugin causes the problem?

    it was one I’m writing 🙂

    there is something in my jQuery that is upsetting the admin menus

    What do you think I could look at to try to figure this out for me?

    I’ve just found my error using the Google Chrome console

    (open the admin in google chrome, right click and choose ‘inspect element’, now choose the ‘console’ tab and (hopefully) you will see an error there that you can fix)

    If there is an error, post it here and I’ll see if I can help

    If you don’t have chrome then you can use firebug in FireFox (you will need to install this)

    Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL load-scripts.php:2
    Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined akismet.js:1
    Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined brunelleschi-options-scripts.js:1
    Uncaught ReferenceError:jQuery is not defined index.php:98
    Uncaught ReferenceError:jQuery is not defined load-scripts.php:19
    Uncaught ReferenceError:jQuery is not defined index.php:550
    Uncaught ReferenceError:jQuery is not defined indx.php:611

    does this help?

    (obviously this is local host)

    Also, have you tried reinstalling WP ? It might be as simple as a corrupt file

    load-scripts.php was one of the files that was changed from version 3.3 to version 3.3.1

    So is there a simple solution? I don’t understand the reply on that link you gave.

    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.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Esmi is correct and if all that fails use the console info I posted earlier to try and spot the error

    (open the admin in google chrome, right click and choose ‘inspect element’, now choose the ‘console’ tab and (hopefully) you will see an error there that you can fix)

    If there is an error, post it here and I’ll see if I can help
