Support » Fixing WordPress » Plugin/theme conflict affecting wp-admin

  • Resolved webbyfoot


    I can no longer edit a plugin’s settings because of a non-unique ID javascript error caused by my old theme and probably a update of the plugin – but I wasn’t aware that themes affected wp-admin? I can’t update the theme because of other issues, but can I replace the theming element for just the admin section with a standard one like 2020 – when I temporarily revert to WordPress 2020 theme there are no problems.

    Yes, it is possible for some themes to affect the admin area. Part of that is when they have a custom settings page and maybe don’t use the correct WordPress hook when loading CSS/JS files. Have you tried reaching out to the theme’s developer about it, they might be able to help?

    What theme and plugin are having this issue?

    Hi thanks – I’ve used Theme Switcha to disable the theme just for admin while I edit the form – not sure it’s worth doing any more at this point.
