Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Uncaught TypeError: jQuery(…).pointer is not a function

  • Resolved hemnathmouli


    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

    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:

    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?
