    Hi All,

    just updated my WordPress to 3.5 and almost everything works fine! Great Job.

    One issue I found is within the Posts view I could not any longer change the permalink URL with the Edit button. Nothing happens.

    Is there any workaround in place?


  2. Could you please go through the steps listed on


    and report back what causes the issue?

    Also, can I get a link to your site to test something non-invasively?

    The issue is not browser related...did not work with firefox nor IE.

    With Firebug I could see the following error:

    TypeError: editPermalink is not a function

    Link to my side: http://www.ausbildung-energieberater.de

  4. Okay, it looks like


    is whitescreening out when I try to load it (those are the scripts that would normally be on the new/edit post screen)

    Can you please check your server error logs? Or turn on WP_DEBUG in your wp-config file via

    define('WP_DEBUG', true);

    (just change the existing false to true)

    -- and then load that URL I linked and paste me the result? It should have some error messages.

  5. Wait, no, scratch that.


    define('SCRIPT_DEBUG', true);

    to your wp-config file, does that fix it?

    what do I need to do now? leave it in the SCRIPT_DEBUG state?

  9. For the moment. This is not an uncommon occurrence, and we believe is a plugin conflict (some plugins leave greasy fingerprints behind even after they're deactivated).

    Hoping to have a permafix in the next day or two. Keep your ears to the ground and follow make.wordpress.org/core if you want to keep closer in the loop.
