Dropdowns are not accessible when clicked. Only when you close the window does the dropdown become accessible. After the window closes data does not save. Also getting duplicate action buttons on popup windows. I believe it is all related. Running Wordpress 4.7.3 and Civi 4.7.16. Same results on different computers and browsers.

  • This is in the backend, so the odds of it being theme related were slim. I tried it with twenty twelve and one other and neither changed the outcome. Mar 21, 2017 at 23:22
  • I have a similar issue with drop-downs and it is theme related. I'd try a newer theme than 2012. Go with twenty sixteen or seventeen. I just switch to twenty seventeen, select the drop-down and save then I switch back to my regular theme. I don't run into the problem very often so this is less work then rebuilding on a new theme.

That's it @Carl Miller. I went through each plugin individually.

The Slider Revolution Plugin was doing it.
