Having Blog Trouble…

After my upgrade to 2.7.1 I found I had no visual editor.  After reuploading files, etc. I finally found that I’ve got an issue with one of my plugins.  Not sure which one, but obviously it’s one that interacts with the admin console.

Steps to fix the problem if you have a tinymce editor in WordPress 2.7.1 that has stopped working.

  1. Refresh the page using ctl-shift-refresh (this is a “hard refresh” which will force everything to reload from the server, not from browser cache).
  2. Check if the browser has returned…
  3. Start disabling your plugins one by one and testing each time you turn one off, then do a hard refresh.
  4. If none of the plugins are causing the problem, delete wp-admin and wp-includes folders and re-upload freshly downloaded copies.
  5. Hard refresh again.
  6. Still have the problem?  Off to WordPress.org with you (or contact whoever handles web support for you…)

( Update: the problem appears to be coming from Vipers Video Quick Tags – which is great, because I know he keeps up to date and will revise quickly.)

  1. Hi Mark, my problem after the upgrade from 2.6 to 2.7.1 was that tags were no more displayed correctly, sometimes they were and sometimes not. After investigating I found that the problem was the plugin Ultimate Tag Warrior, and the worst thing is that the developer of this plugin seems not to update it in the future.
    So I replaced the call to the function of UTW in my loop with the default one of PHP – the_tags() – but this solution is not completely free of issues, since the links are correctly displayed but the location they point to doesn’ t exist. I think this is because UTW is hard-coded into my theme and probably there’ s some other call of UTW functions somewhere.
    This version of WordPress is letting me down more and more.
    How are you feeling about it? Did you use UTW, too?

    1. I did use UTW for a while, but swapped over to the native function when it came out.

      First off, try switching to another theme and see if the tag links work. That will tell you if the problem is in the theme or somewhere in WordPress itself.

      From there, we can start to diagnose the issue…

  2. Ok, I’ll try this, even if I am pretty sure it’s a theme-related issue, because I saw a few functions of UTW around my theme files.. However, I will let you know as soon as possible.

    Bye, Nicola

    1. Have a look in functions.php in you theme. You probably have some UTW functions in there that are re-routing the links. You might want to consider starting with a clean, new theme as well.
