At odds, when I try to edit a question's tags, I get this error when clicking 'Save Tag Edits':

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'find' of undefined

The corresponding code appears to be inside inline-tag-editing.js:

var disableButtons = function() {
    jTagList.find('input[type="button"]').attr('disabled', 'true');

This is happening on Chrome 13.

Could this possibly be solved? I understand it might be difficult with so little information but again I'm not sure how to reproduce since it does not always happen.

Edit: I see why it happened. When I edit a post (full edit including title/body), then save it, and then edit only the tags (with the inline tag editor), I get this error.

  • @random: I just cleared it. I will edit when it happens again or if I don't experience it anymore.

  • Maybe it's related to this recent bug? meta.stackexchange.com/questions/102485/… Aug 24, 2011 at 21:02
  • @Shadow Wizard: It might be, although that one is fixed.

  • ah yes, I have reproed this before. Has to do with doing an inline full edit, then a tag edit. Aug 24, 2011 at 22:51

This was a timing issue causing a JavaScript object to be overwritten with another one too early (because a JS file was included several times) in certain cases. We've switched to loading the inline tag editing code via our deferred JavaScript loader; among other advantages, this causes the file to only be loaded once, fixing this problem.
