Support » Fixing WordPress » Upload media and tag tools stopped working in 3.3.1

  • I just upgraded to WordPress 3.3.1 today and several tools simply stopped functioning: (1) the tools to insert images (upload/insert media) into posts (2) link to choose tags for each post (3) available widgets drag and drop into navigation all simply stopped working entirely. No error message. They just do nothing. Tried both Firefox and Explorer and it’s the same with both. Just broken. Click on any of those tools and virtually nothing happens. Tried different themes and it is the same with all of them. Cannot choose tags. Cannot insert images. Cannot edit or add available widgets. My WP 3.3.1 is broken. 🙁

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thanks. Will try all these. Appreciate your efforts to help. 🙂

    Wow, step one identified a problem. I deactivated all my plug-ins and found that the problems disappeared. (So thank you!). Then reactivated plug-ins one-by-one until I found one plug-in whose reactivation caused the problems to return. Unfortunately, it is one of the most important plug-ins for my website! Arg. It also worked fine with my previous version of WP (and there’s no upgraded version of that plug-in available either). Is there a way to revert to an earlier version of WP that still can work with a plug-in I can’t really give up? And thank you for your help!

    We do not recommend using older versions of WordPress for security reasons.

    Thanks for your help 🙂
