Support » Plugin: Ozh' Admin Drop Down Menu » Version 3.6.9 Dashboard Display is Crazy

  • The dashboard display is huge between the menu bar icons and what is below.

    Definitely a conflict with latest version of Yoast – Google Analytics by Yoast (Version 5.0.6) & WordPress SEO (version 1.6.1)

    When I deactivate these plugins, the admin menu is fine. Reverting to an older Ozh menu makes no difference.

  • Is there any possibility of a fix or adding something to the CSS rather than messing with my theme’s coding?

    And what happens when you revert to older Yoast versions? Ever since he expanded and began the serious monetization, the code has been problematical in one way or another. This breaks, that breaks. As a result, I’ve not adopted any of the newer SEO versions past 1.5.2.2 and there is no conflict with Admin Drop Down Menu 3.6.9.

    And what happens when you revert to older Yoast versions?

    I did this on a test site.

    1. Manually, through FTP, uploaded the extracted SEO v1.6 to the wp-content/plugins folder (and made sure to overwrite). Still experienced same issue.
    2. Did same with SEO v1.56. Same issue

    Next, I DELETED wordpress-seo and then installed v1.6. Admin Menu issues were gone. However, I lost all my settings with Yoast 🙁

    Feeling brave, updated wordpress-seo plugin to v1.6.1. Admin menu issues were back. 🙁

    So, based on what you are saying and my recent experience, v1.6 is the highest I should go with Yoast until they, not Ozh, works out the issues.

    I cannot stand the WordPress Admin UI (all that crap on the side) without Ozh Admin menu…

    Thanks.

    Remaining with 1.6 or earlier would be the approach, yes. Seems as if there’s something “sticky” that gets written to the database that can influence multiple versions; even when rolled back. Once it gets in there, it’s there forever unless you nuke it.

    Through some help from a kind soul on the Yoast WordPress support site https://wordpress.org/support/topic/plug-in-does-strange-things-to-the-admin-area, I ended up doing the following:

    1. Through my hosting file manager deleted the wordpress-seo plugin folder in /wp-content/plugins/
    2. Upon recommendation of the most stable version of Yoast SEO, downloaded the zip file version 1.5.5.3 from https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/developers/
    3. Went into the WordPress admin > plugins and selected Add New
    4. Uploaded the plugin from the admin plugin installer
    5. Reactivated SEO plugin.

    I did not lose my settings. And the plugin has no conflict with the Ozh admin menu. The only annoyance, which is so minor, is the nagging about updating Yoast.

    Glad you got a fix working. For plugins that I do not want to update until they get their act together, I open the primary plugin file, in this case wp-seo.php, change the line:

    Version: 1.5.5.3
    to
    Version: 2.5.5.3
    Upload to server and it’ll never nag you again.

    I have exactly the same problem. I did what GR8FL suggested, but it did not work for me. I’ve updated recently to WordPress 4.0. Any further suggestions?

    Update: this fix worked for me:
