note: i do not know why i do get all those nasty errrors.

I've been working on a new project with wordpress. However, I start noticing that some features on the back office (like slide down menus and widgets) weren't working. So I fired up debugging console of my browser and found that there is an intermittent issue:

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL load-scripts.php:1 load-scripts.php?c=1&load%5B%5D=jquery,utils,json2&ver=xyz other times...

to be frank: I had issues


was not able to do configurations of the widgets in wp 3.9 was not able to access the set-options page was not able to switch the accessible mode

btw .- see the page - a non profit page: it is BETA-BETA

btw - the magic_quotes_gpc, magic_quotes_runtime, are not set off do you think that this may help.


Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL load-scripts.php:1

Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined load-scripts.php:2

(anonymous function)

Similar issues found in different browsers: Chrome, Safari and Firefox. Next step was googling for some answers and found a reference for javascript diagnose here. When I enable SCRIPT_DEBUG, the error stops, and everything runs smoothly again.

At this moment I don't have some plugin nor theme installed and been running in localhost.

Couldn't find yet a solution. Any ideas?

    This is not Java. It is Javascript. The two are very very different.

  • Do you have any "security" plugins activated? Do you have anything in the /wp-admin/.htaccess file (the file normally should not exist, some plugins create it). Do you have anything unusual in the normal .htaccess file?

  • What happens if you disable all your chrome extensions? I don't get those errors here.

It looks to me like you're trying to utilize jQuery in custom code, but haven't actually enqueue'd the jQuery script - This line gives it away (I think?):

ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined

if you are using wp_enqueue_script to bring in a custom .js file, make sure you set jquery as a dependancy

wp_enqueue_script( 'my-script', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/js/myfile.js', array( 'jquery' ) );
  • hello dear eric many thanks; i will try to understand all your ideas & thoughts. i come back later for more descriptions and explanations. meanwhile - all the best to you!!
