    Hey Hi,

    My entire wp-admin JS stuff didn’t work due a error caused by WordFence. If I deactivate the plugin the wp-admin scripts works well.

    This is the error that I found in the Console

    Uncaught TypeError: jQuery(...).pointer is not a function

    in the javascript file

    /wp-content/plugins/wordfence/js/tourTip.js?ver=6.3.0

    Hi,

    Do you have any plugins that minify/concatenate or otherwise modify the scripts that WordPress loads? The pointer function is from wp-pointer.js, built into WordPress. Normally it is loaded with a script tag that looks something like this:
    /wp-admin/load-scripts.php?c=0&load%5B%5D=hoverIntent,common,admin-bar,jquery-ui-widget,jquery-ui-position,wp-pointer,svg-painter,heartbeat,wp-auth-check&ver=4.7.2

    It’s possible that a script that loads before “wp-pointer” in that list or in a separate script tag is causing the issue, so that pointer() is not defined. If you’re not using plugins that modify scripts at all, can you try temporarily deactivating other plugins?
