Visual Editor Screwed When Updating Wordpress 3.5.1

visual editor tags widgets javascript error

Best Answer Simon_P , 08 February 2013 - 07:40 PM

One of your plugins is using an out of date jquery library. This happens every time wordpress update the core libs, it takes the plugin authors several months to realise and update.

Even though plugin/theme authors are notified months in advance lol.

 

So go thorough all your plugins and make sure they are all up to date, and if problem persists try the following:

 

1. clear your browser cache ( you may have the old jquery cached localy )

2. reupload wordpress files ( all except the wp-content folder )

 

Hopefully that will fix it.

Thank you so much Simon, I followed your instructions and then realised it was one of the plugins so I tested them one by one and it is working now. Cheers for the useful advice, now I won't freak out in future lol. Have a good day!

I am having the same issue. Which plugin was the problem? I wonder if I am using the same one and what I might do to replace the plugin function, while repairing the visual editor?

Please advise.

thanks,

Hi Brenton

 

It wasn't mentioned in the post which one was causing the problem unforutnately. To determine which one could be affecting your layout you can either disable them all at once, or one by one to see which resolves the admin panel.

 

If there's a new version of the plugin available you can update, you'll see any new versions available in Plugins>installed plugins via the wp admin area, they'll be a prompt under the plugin name.

 

To replace the plugin if there's no update available, it would be a case of searching for another plugin via the wordpress codex to  perform the same functions unfortunately.
