Support » Fixing WordPress » New media Manager TIP box will NOT dismiss in WP 3.5

  • Resolved shoqvalue


    When I Add a new post, the “New Media Manager” welcome box appears with text:

    “Uploading files and creating image galleries has a whole new look. Check it out!”

    The DISMISS [x] button simply will not close the box. Others reported this in the 2012 theme forum, but had no resolution.

    Here’s a screen shot of the problem.

    Can anyone tell me how to clear this?

    This was in my Chrome Console errors

  • Ok, I deactivated most of my plug ins, and that cleared it. I didn’t do it one at a time, but I have a hunch the culprit may have been Widget Saver which is responsibly for storing positions. I suspect it wasn’t updated. If you’re using this plug in, try it first.

    I have solved it!
    Go to wp-admin\includes\template.php and delete:

    public static function pointer_wp350_media() {
    		$content  = '<h3>' . __( 'New Media Manager' ) . '</h3>';
    		$content .= '<p>' . __( 'Uploading files and creating image galleries has a whole new look. Check it out!' ) . '</p>';
    		self::print_js( 'wp350_media', '.insert-media', array(
    			'content'  => $content,
    			'position' => array( 'edge' => is_rtl() ? 'right' : 'left', 'align' => 'center' ),
    		) );

    and you dont see it anymore!

    I’m having the same trouble as what you mentioned before, but when I go into wp-admin\includes\template.php I don’t see that bit of code. Is there anything else I can try?

    Than you BeEnvy1 for solving that.
    That block was on 1829, and on line 1839 there is a convenient /* comment start you can drag up to line 1828, save, and you’re done.

    BeEnvy1 — your solution throws a php error when that function is eventually called.

    Does anyone know how to disable the originating call altogether?
