Support » Fixing WordPress » WP 5.5 Dashboard laggy, menus not working

  • Dashboard Menus lag or don’t pop-out when rolled over. Screen Options doesn’t work at all, experiencing this on 4 sites I’ve upgrade to 5.5 so far.

  • This is a symptom we’ve seen of having older plugins that rely on jquery-migrate, that was removed in WP 5.5.
    You can try the Helper plugin to see if that is the case for you.

    Thank you, I did that but it doesn’t help me with these issues, it just tells me where the Jquery is deprecated (the theme and a Geotarget plugin)

    Now I know not to upgrade my other sites, I don’t have time for this.

    Are you referring to the “Enable jQuery Migrated” plugin mentioned above? I ask because the plugin doesn’t say if jQuery is deprecated. All it does is enable jQuery Migrate which v5.5 no longer enables by default.

    To further explore your problems you can use the DevTools in your Browser. See here for more info:

    Yes, I know how to do all that. My point is I shouldn’t have to after a WordPress upgrade. Everything was fine pre-5.5

    And the point of this Support area is to Help people. This is not the Complaint area.

    Although a solution has been given to the problem you stated you still haven’t replied as to whether it was used and if it helped.

    It helped with a few issues but overall no, this update has broken a significant part of the functions in WordPress even after installing this plugin and deactivating offending plugin (Geotarget) identified by the “Enable jQuery Migrated” plugin.

    I think we can all agree that v5.5 has some issues and we either use something else or fix what we have.

    Feel free to post other problems you are having, either here or in a new thread, or you can mark this thread as Resolved.
