[Resolved] WordPress icons messed up

  • For some reason the icons used in the admin backend are messed up. This is most noticable in TinyMCE where the buttons are completely misaligned and have the wrong background-position (See image below):


    I have attempted to download a fresh install of WordPress 3.5 and replaced my files with the following from it:


    However nothing changed. I haven’t edited the admin stylesheet either.

    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 default 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 all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Hi esmi thanks for the response.

    I tried all your suggestions except from the last one to no avail, before I do the last one I’d like to understand the risks associated with it and what sort of data I may lose? I’m worried there may be plugin specific data outside of there e.g. I know W3 Total Cache stores information outside of the wp-content folder.

    I have a lot of data in my current WordPress installation and I can’t afford to cause any sort of issues at this point in time.

    Solved: It appears chrome had a corrupt cache as I attempted to visit the backend on Firefox and noticed that the issue wasn’t there.

    I had to delete all Chrome browsing data (cache alone wouldn’t do it).
