Support » Fixing WordPress » Missing screen options after upgrading to WordPress 3.3.1

  • After upgrading to WordPress 3.3.1 I wanted to add a new post, page etc.
    When being on the post edit, I have noticed that all column 1 screen options are missing including: excerpt, canonical, custom field etc.

    At the top right, where pop down the screen option, even after checking the check boxes of the options I selected they are still missing.
    Meaning, down the post there’s no option to write excerpt for example.

    Some of the column 1 options that are missing: Canonical, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Custom Fields, Discussion and Slug

    Am i missing something?

  • Yup. Just found out here as well.
    Tried on 2 different machines both on 3.3.1 and both tried in twentyten and custom themes.

    Scrub the above – now works fine for me.

    Post excerpts work fine.
    Pages don’t have excerpts, by default, but they do if you add the following to your functions:

    add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );

    New project and I totally forgot to add it!

    What plugins have you got installed?

    I’ve got an installation with 3.3.1 with no plugins and it works.

    nissimziv is saying it’s not working for him with ‘posts’ though. They come as standard.

    My Mistake:-) and sorry I couldn’t reply earlier.
    It appeared that these missing screen options were located just on their right place – Column 1.
    The problem was that the post/page editor area was 10,000 pixels long, so I couldn’t see the excerpt, Canonical, trackbacks etc.
    Still, don’t understand why the height of the editor area became so tall..
    It is confusing.

    Seems we all jumped to blame 3.3.1 update!
    Well, I’ve learned something at least.
