Sounds like browser cache problem, make_slugedit_clickable() is defined in post.js. Can you try refreshing the cache and/or another browser/computer?

comment:2 @markhowellsmead5 years ago

Yes, that was my thought too so I completely re-set the browser before reporting here: to no avail.

In this case can you delete the wp-admin/js directory and upload a fresh copy with FTP (or perhaps the whole wp-admin). It is unlikely but still possible the upgrade didn't replace all files.

comment:4 @markhowellsmead5 years ago

I didn't upgrade, I overwrote the entire directory via FTP, ensuring a completely fresh installation. All files included in the 2.9 release have been implemented.

Problem is that when overwriting a file may not get replaced for some reason. It would be best to delete the directory and upload a fresh copy. Sometimes even extracting the zip package can corrupt some files, so it would be a good idea to start with a fresh download.

If this was a problem in WordPress there would have been thousands of bug reports about it by now (nearly 550,000 downloads of 2.9).

markhowellsmead, you still have this problem?

comment:7 follow-up: @markhowellsmead5 years ago

  • Version changed from 2.9 to 2.9.1

Yes. I have completely uninstalled WordPress, reset my browsers completely and installed WP 2.9.1 afresh. The problem remains the same and is apparent on Mac in Firefox 3.5.6 and Safari 4.0.4.

The string "make_slugedit_clickable" doesn't exist in WordPress 2.9. Most likely an old version of post.js is being loaded by a plugin or the current theme.

Thanks for the suggestion; it was indeed the plugin "More Fields" which was breaking the admin page. Making the modification detailed at http://labs.dagensskiva.com/forum/topic.php?id=234&replies=8#post-810 fixes the problem.
