#22866 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

"Edit" button in page/post screen doesn't work

Reported by: joeleade's profile joeleade Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 3.5
Component: Administration Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


The "Edit" button in the post/page edit screen (e.g. /wp-admin/post.php?post=##&action=edit) doesn't make the permalink address editable. The URL changes (appends "#post_name") but the field doesn't become editable.

You're still able to edit the permalink via the "Quick Edit" link in the post/page list screen (/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=page)

This is my first bug report so please let me know if you need more info.

Does this still happen with all plugins deactivated and using Twenty Eleven or Twenty Twelve?

Hi Sergey,

My apologies, it is in fact the theme I'm using. I'll cancel the ticket. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Cheers, Joel

Hi Sergey,

Not sure if this matters but I found that preventing concatenation of scripts in functions.php using define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false); resolved my issue. I was using the nightly WordPress 3.5 RC's without an issue, but today's launch of 3.5 RC4 seemed to trip me up.

I was given this fix by Wil Brown via

After fixing this, another error occurred where some jQuery functionality stopped working. I resolved by upgrading from jQuery UI 1.8.17 to jQuery 1.9.2. I've let the theme author know this info too.

Apologies if this isn't your concern. Thought I'd let you know in case it's any help for other bug tickets.

Have a great day!
