I need help with my WordPress Dashboard. I think this happened when my site crashed and was forced to disable the plugins by renaming the plugins folder.

I am unable to toggle the "Add User Show Password". When clicked, it doesn't show anything.

Aside from that, normally you would be able to right click (In my case, middle mouse button) and open in a new tab when hovering over dashboard side menus.

And the select all plugins doesn't work.

Sorry for the vague question, I really don't know what term to use for these problems but my WordPress Dashboard overall feels clunky and unresponsive. I've tried disabling all plugins and changing themes but the problem still persists. Please help!

In order to investigate the problem, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure everything is up to date. Including WordPress itself, active theme and all of the active plugins.
  2. Check browser console (Hit F12 in Google Chrome). If there is any red error message regarding javascript, it can make the page unresponsive like clicks are not working. In the error message, the source of the error is visible, you can see which file, from which plugin or theme is causing this issue, deactivate it and see if it resolves the issue or not.
  3. Install and activate jQuery Migrate plugin if you are using the latest version of WordPress and some old plugins that are not updated after WordPress 5.5.
  4. Enable debug mode and check the debug log to see if there is any PHP error in your WordPress installation. If there is any, try to resolve it.
