Glitch when activating theme

Reported by: ianbelanger Owned by:

Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


I noticed a small glitch while activating any theme on the Appearance > Themes page. When you click Activate, the .themes.wp-clearfix or .theme-browser div either shrinks or expands a small amount. This issue only shows up on Chrome, Firefox does not have this issue.

To recreate the issue:

  1. Open latest Chrome browser
  2. Go to Appearance > Themes
  3. Click Activate on any theme and watch as the themes shrink or expand

This glitch will not show while the "New theme activated" notification is showing, so it does not happen again after activating a theme. Unless you reload the page without the notification.

Seems to be an Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected string on the Themes page

Seems to be an Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected string on the Themes page

The SyntaxError is coming from the wp-emoji-loader.js file, included on line 46 on wp-admin/themes.php

After further testing, it appears that this may only be a Windows 10/Chrome issue. Mac users are not seeing the glitch.
