whenever I edit a post, I get any javascript error in the file

hidden link

in line 105:


The error message is:

Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'dialog'

Due to this error, I'm not able to edit posts properly. In fact, it's a showstopper.

How can I fix this?

Dear Michael,

My name is Konrad and I will assist you when we will solve this problem together.

We are aware of this problem, you are second person who found it today. Now we are orking on this and this will be fixed in next release.

To make things faster, could I ask you for your site credentials (wp-admin and FTP)? I will download your site and test it locally.

You will see some special fields for those credentials at forum, see attachment.

Please let me know if you are satisfied with my answer and if I can help you with any other questions you might have

Please attached the TEMPORARY access information you required.

You can experience the bug, when you select "Galleries" on the left side (a custom post type), click "All Galleries", edit the "Welcome" gallery and try to perform any javascript action on the page, e. g. click the camera icon.

Please let me know as soon as you do no longer require the access. Thanks.

Could I ask you a favor?

Please add this code to end of functions.php file in theme directory and tell me if it helps:

Indeed, this solves the problem. Thanks a lot!

Do you still need the logins I provided you?

Shall I keep the code you provided in the functions.php? Or do you plan to change the implementation somehow?

You can remove our access to your site.

I suggest you to move this code from functions.php to sitepress.php file in our plugin /plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms. When we will fix this, WPML update will overwrite this code and you will have no conflict

Perfect, thank you! Thanks especially for the quick support!

Hi, I am having a similar problem at my site:

TypeError: postEdit.$connect_translations_dialog.dialog is not a function

in the sitepress-multilingual-cms/res/js/post-edit.js

Would you mind taking a look?

Perfect, thank you!

this seems not to be resolved just by adding jquery-ui-dialog.
if you apply the above solution in wp 3.9 , open/close postboxes won't work any more.

I have some trouble with WPML and the lollum framework. The developer has sent me the link to this topic over here. His framework seems not to work with the actual WMPL plugin and now I have to deactivate WMPL to edit my content (and activate it afterwards again). Is there a fix for this behavior?

Same here with WP 3.9 i have this issue to!
