    It looks to be an issue with the upgrade of TinyMCE from 3.x to 4.0

    TinyMCE 4.0 is in core

    Same issue here… hope the conflict can be resolved soon.

    Having the same problem on Had to deactivate the plugin.

    I just had to delete this plugin for the same issue.

    I really hope this is resolved soon. For me deactivating the plugin isn’t an option since my site is a food blog! Ugh! However, with it activated I cannot make any new posts. Until this is fixed the only option I can think of is to have my host restore to a backup from before I updated. Does anyone know a better way??

    @proshapefitness you could deactivate it to work on posts and then reactivate when you’re done. So the recipes would only be down a short time. Maybe compose in a plain text editor so that you have it deactivated the shortest time possible?

    @newseasondesign that’s another option I hadn’t thought of! I actually just got off the phone with bluehost and had them restore to a version from this AM before I had updated. For now, I’m just going to work off the old version of wordpress. Hopefully ZipList will issue a fix soon so we can update! I sent them email btw, so I’ll post their answer in here when I get a response.

    After we disable the plugin, we are still unable to link text or images. What a train wreck! This needs to get updated ASAP! We can’t create content unless it’s disabled, but if it’s disabled, our readers can’t see all the recipes!



    For now I ended up deleting lines 462-941 from zlrecipe.php so that the plugin doesn’t break the editor but still displays the recipes on the site. Not even close to a fix since you can’t edit or add a recipe in the editor but better than disabling the plugin all together.

    UPDATE: even removing all those lines, inserting images does not work unless I disable the plugin.

    Good morning. As you know, WordPress’s most recent update to 3.9 has caused problems for the ZipList Recipe Plugin. We apologize for the inconvenience this caused you and your readers. Note, that we are head down, working hard to resolve this as quickly as possible. We will let you know when we’ve reached a resolution.

    I am having the exact same issue – if I deactivate the plugin, I can edit/add new posts. BUT, that is not an option for me, since I have a food blog and this plugin is absolutely necessary. Hoping for a quick resolution! Following this thread….

    Yes, I am having the same issue. Eager for the problem to get resolved.

    The following when added as a plugin or in your functions.php file will stop the TinyMCE portion of ZipList from loading while the developer sorts out the issues:

    add_action( 'init', 'fys_remove_zlist_tinymce', 11 );
    function fys_remove_zlist_tinymce() {
            remove_filter('mce_external_plugins', 'amd_zlrecipe_tinymce_plugin');

    Having the same problem.
    Question: shouldn’t you have changed the TinyMCE for WP-edit?
    I did, because that was the advice for WP 3.9.1



    geurvanmaillard, it is a very important advice for whom is using these plugins.
    I do not have none of the two and have the problem.
    Hope in a quick solution from the ZipList support team
