WordPress Plugin Compatibility

This page is part of the Troubleshooting documentation.

Plugins We Recommend Avoiding Due to Conflicts

  • Lizatom Shortcodes — Substitutes its own version of the CodeMirror JS and CSS files for their Thesis counterparts, which breaks the Custom CSS Editor.
  • SEO Facebook Comments — Filter function it uses is not compatible with Thesis (i.e., the output ends up before the DOCTYPE).
  • Triberr — Substitutes its own version of the comments template, with conflicts with the Thesis version.
  • Use Google Libraries — Improperly queues up JS in the WordPress dashboard and causes conflicts with other plugins or themes that need to run JS.

Plugins which Work, but with Specific Compatibility Issues

  • Antispam Bee — If you find your Thesis Skin Editor to be non-functional, then you must deactivate the plugin in order to use the Editor again.
  • Jetpack — Click for compatibility details by module.
  • LeadPages — If you find your Thesis Skin Editor to be non-functional (i.e., clicking its link redirects to your home page instead of displaying the Editor), then you must deactivate the plugin in order to use the Editor again.
  • Next Gen Gallery — There are some reports that this plugin will cause the WP Admin Bar to partially obscure the Thesis Skin Editor Menu. The solution is to temporarily disable the plugin until you’ve finished editing your Skin.
  • Shortcodes Ultimate — Older versions can break the Custom CSS Editor; so make sure you’re using version 4.1.0 or higher.
  • Thumbnail for Excerpts — You’ll need to implement this compatibility fix.
  • W3 Total Cache — You must disable object caching and “HTML & XML” minification.
  • WordPress SEO (Yoast) — Click for specific compatibility details.
  • WP Minify — You must disable “HTML Minification”.
