  • Resolved cent


    Hi All,

    Perfectly good WP 2.7.1 blog that I upgraded to WP 2.8 (automatic install). The front-end works, but the I can’t do anything Ajaxy in the admin (upload media from post, add tags, etc.). Looking further and it seems like none of the JS libraries are loading.

    Going to do a fresh install and make sure nothing happened during the automatic install. However, if that is still broken, I think I have a solution to the problem.

    Will know more shortly.

  • It appears that no JS is running in WP admin area. Tried under Safari and Firefox. Nothing JS related is even being triggered.

    Looking further… there is something conflicting with JS on the post add/edit page. JS works every where else in the admin once I added: define( ‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false ); to the wp-config file.

    A Wootheme was loading JS code for their buttons in the left sidebar of the admin that was causing the conflict with WP Post Add/Edit page. Changing to a different template, fixed the problem immediately. Switching back to the Wootheme, brought the problem back. I don’t believe its related to their theme itself, but just some code they’re running on the admin screen.

    I commented out a woothemes_add_javascript and the admin is working again. Broke the JS on the blog, but its an easy fix.
