WordPress Wysiwyg Editor Problem (10 posts)

    After I upgraded my WordPress site to version 3.9 I noticed that my Wysiwyg Editor stopped working. I already have this fix in place in my wp-config file:

    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);

    So I disabled my plug-ins one by one and found the issue to be with Akismet Version 3.0.0. I am not sure if anyone else has had this issue? For now I have Akismet disabled.

    The same for me. Had troubles (aparently) with javascript in the WYSIWYG editor, after upgraded WP to 3.9. "Solved" when disabled Akismet. One detail: it doesn't happened in my local copy.

    The issue is not in Akismet. Can you replicate the problem using the default Twenty Fourteen theme with all other plugins deactivated?

    I did disable each plugin that I had and Akismet was the one causing the issue. The theme I am using is the Fourteen Theme. For now I have Akismet disabled. Let me know when this is resolved.

    It's possible that this was caused by the way that Akismet uses some JavaScript in version 3.0; that method was changed a couple of weeks ago (https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/907986/akismet/trunk) and the fix will be included in 3.0.1 (or whatever the next version number).

    Hello. I have quite a similar issue when I edit posts. Features from the Visual Editor, assumed to open a floating pane, like "Add Media" or "Insert/Edit Link" are not working anymore when Akismet is enabled. Others, like "Bold" or "Indent" still work fine.

    I have this issue with Chrome and IE (both up-to-date)

    I tried to clean my cache after switching from my theme to Twenty Fourteen, but it didn't some solve my issue. I tried also to upgrade Akismet from 3.0.0. to 3.0.1 but without more success :(
    I also defined CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS = False as suggested but it didn't help.
    I have tried to add "define('SCRIPT_DEBUG', true);" but it didn't solve anything either.

    I am running WP 3.8.2, the latest version packaged by Synology for my NAS.

    I couldn't survive without Akismet! So, I don't keep it disabled. But it's really frustrating.

    I found that everything works fine if I rollback to Akismet 2.5.9 (I don't have the version 2.6.0 to give it a try)

    I also found that installing "Use Goole Libraries" results in the same issue (floating panes don't open anymore).

    So, IMO, the problem is related to a new version of some ajax/jquery features... possibly within jquery-ui.min.js as looking into my browser's developer console, I see errors for that file: Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function

    So, I won't upgrade Akismet and wait for a new Synology's package with a more recent WP.

    So FYI I had this same problem, disabled, and re-enabled and it worked just fine.. Others reporting the problem too.

    I'm using Atahualpa 3.7.15, WP 3.9.1 and Akismet 3.01. Akismet disables the Add Media button when writing or editing posts. It also disables the quick lookup for tags when I try to enter the first letters in a tag I want to add. I've checked by disabling all plugins and adding one-by-one. Only Akismet gives me that error.

    I also experienced this issue you have with the tags.

    Disabling and re-enabling akismet did not the trick.

    Only solution I found, after hours of investigation of the code, was to rollback to a version 2.x of Akismet.

    It's interesting to read that upgrading to WP 3.9.x wouldn't solve my issue...
